Mom vs. Mom

Posted on

Yesterday I read a blog post discussing the competition that pits woman vs woman, mom vs mom and how sad and silly it all is. I won’t get into the specific argument that started this because it doesn’t deserve the attention but I do want to address the disparity.

As liberated women in this nation, we owe it to ourselves and each other to honor our fellow women for whatever choices they might make in their lives. If a woman is doing something positive in her life that makes her happy, who are you, me or anyone else to say it’s not the right thing to do?

One of the core reasons I began MouthyGirl.com was to celebrate women from all walks of life that are not only surviving, but thriving in today’s’ world that is wrought with starvation, suffrage and sacrifice. Women still get stoned to death in some parts of the world!

So why the hell is it so hard for us to stop looking at each other with a suspicious eye, minding each others business? You stay in your yard with your drama and I’ll stay in mine, we can talk and support each other and try to form tight friendships but don’t pass judgment because its not your place, and I won’t either.

It’s not hard ladies. For this one thing, I’m going there – we need to man up. Take a lesson from the guys and stop giving a shit what other people think about you so much, the opinions that should matter to you are the ones in YOUR house.

  1. Great post, thanks for speaking up!

    I love this: “we owe it to ourselves and each other to honor our fellow women for whatever choices they might make in their lives. If a woman is doing something positive in her life that makes her happy, who are you, me or anyone else to say it’s not the right thing to do?”

    Amen, sister.

  2. Thank you so much for offering up your direct and action oriented comments. Yes there are still woman in the world that are stoned and can only show their eyes in public…..makes you stop and think for a momment. I think you hit on somehthing pretty real “maning up” great point. I also feel men should be womaning up also. Step up and get active in husbanding and fathering!

    In our house all stuff is 50 50 and nothing comes with a label of men’s or woman’s work. I am sure we probably lean a certain way with some work gargbage collection and take out, mowing lawns, etc, but it is not because I am a man i do only those things, my wife just like to do those things; cool, but I don’t turn around say well I mow the lawn you cook and clean, becuase I am doing man’s work and you need to do woman’s work. If you think this way please insert a slap upside the head right now!

    I think it is tough enough for all genders working, raising families, and making the next generation to have to pick a side to agree with. Make your choice do the best you can with it! Oh by the way you can change your mind also, but remember don’t judge all your choice if you do, do decide to change good luck fostering relationships….
