It was 48 hours non-stop of feeling the love with a few timeouts here and there to lambaste Tearfree as an “ass hat,” “fucktard," “blogtard,” and, worst of all, “not nice.” Why, there was even some Granny blogger talking smack about Tearfree on various Mummy Blogger websites, posting comments like “I was part of the feminist movement of the 70's and I can tell you that troll's diatribe was not what we had in mind. Of course it's about choice and no choice has less value than any other.”
Well first of all Grandma, here at Reject the Koolaid, we don’t discriminate on the basis of age, so Tearfree’s going to tell it to you straight.
Despite the wisdom and experience you should have acquired by your stage in life, you are showing yourself to be as Oprah-addled as the average 20-something Mummy Blogger. Take your theory that “no choice has less value than any other.” Hmm, in that case Tearfree’s choice to start a blog of her own has no less value than any other Koolaid Mom’s choice to blog, so you need to either
a) put that cane down and back right off or
b) do a fundamental rethink of your guiding life philosophy
Tearfree also hopes you’ve taken your daily heart medicine because what she’s going to tell you now may shock you to your very core: one of the profoundly radical things we believe here at Reject the Koolaid is that some choices – be they about Motherhod or what Jack Bauer has to do to save millions of lives -- do indeed have a hell of a lot more value than others.
And as for all you Mummy Bloggers still wringing your hands over what type of person Tearfree must be to spend so much energy spreading “hate” and negativity and mocking Mummy bloggers so mercilessly, well, the answer is Tearfree aspires to be this type of person.
Finally, she would like to give you one last round of Mother’s Day thanks for all the wonderful material you’ve given her to work with. Please, keep it coming so we can all meet back here in one more year.
