I think we'll file this one under 'feminist' but in reality I just want to SCREAM about the fucking stupid mothers I have encountered lately. I was just in the chip shop (it's all fine dining for me) and this kid was shrieking and the mother was screaming and he went 'mum!' and she said 'God, how I hate that word.'
God, how I hate that word? Well you should have thought about that before getting knocked up then! What kind of fantasy land do people live in when they are planning (or not) to become pregnant? What do they imagine it to be like? Like a fucking nappy advert? All peachy little bums and giggles?
I wouldn't mind, but they take it out on YOU, the casual passer-by, with their moaning and shouting, like it's your fault they decided to give birth to mewling, filth-ridden money-drainers.
Well it's NOT my fault. I don't want any, so keep yours away from me, thanks!
This is without yesterday's high jinks where I got ram raided by a very ugly woman with a buggy and told to MOVE! on the tube. (I also got told to take my headphones out and connect with the world- but anyway). I replied, 'The world didn't end when you decided to give birth.' And this I think is the crux of the matter. Pregnant women and women with children have TOO MANY rights! They are considered a superior species to us bitter, barren, dried-up (not even) career women. They are given months off work. Where are my fucking months off work for NOT spawning? You don't get praised for keeping your head down, you just get labelled 'inhuman'.
I repeat: the world doesn't end just because you give birth. Well, yours might, but mine doesn't. And yes, I am looking forward to being lonely in old age, thank you. Lonely, peaceful, and free.
