Rabid Moms Attack Other Mom for Posting Too Many Baby Pics

In this ninth circle of social media hell where most of us reside, we all deal with a fair amount of oversharing. Sometimes we are the clueless oversharer while other times we’re on the other side of the Facebook wall, gouging out our eyes with forks upon the viewing of yet another drunken Coachella photo or the twentieth photo of someone’s adorable baby.

While it can be annoying to see images of a FB friend’s spawn over and over again while you innocently scroll through the day’s posts, the agony can be cured with one simple act: the unfollow button. A woman who wrote news.com.au has some friends who either don’t know about the unfollow option or are just plain beyotches. They decided to send the woman a scathing email informing her just how sick they were of never-ending posts about her newborn. From the letter:

Look we all have kids that we are besotted with—guess what—every parent thinks their kid is the best ever. But we don’t ram it down everyone else’s neck!!! She wears a new outfit—well take a photo and send it PRIVATELY to the person who gave it to her—not to everyone!!!! She crawls off the mat—we DON’T care!!!!! She’s 6 months old—BIG DEAL!!! Stop and think—if every mother posted all that crap about their kid—I’m sure you’d get over it pretty quickly.

We can’t wait for you to get back to work—maybe you won’t have time to be on Facebook quite so much.

OMG RUDE. Couldn’t they have just thrown this woman a bone by mentioning that she might be going a tad overboard on her Facebook in a calmer manner? All I see in my head when I read this letter is some mom-looking cartoon character with steam coming out of their ears.

Jesus Christ, what a bunch of butts. I don’t have kids and I don’t want kids and I don’t really like kids but I do my best to nod along supportively when people talk about their kids or show me pictures or whatever because that is basic human courtesy and also I guess it’s really nice that people love their kids? It’s even easier to endure baby pics on Facebook because you can just scroll past them, you don’t even need to go ‘Aw’ and pull an appropriately charmed face.

Also I guarantee you that if I had pushed a human being out of my vagina, I would never stop going on about it. ‘Hey, remember that time when I pushed a human being out of my vagina? A WHOLE HUMAN BEING. OUT OF MY VAGINA. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE’.
