  1. Ahhh yes, true, but the women are only doing the mum shaming because they’ve been brainwashed by the patriarchy into perpetuating outdated attitudes toward mothers.

    Or something like that.

  2. It’s the women who are forever hassling each other to be super thin and then complaining about unrealistic body standards. I don’t know whether men are getting the blame there as well but most men seem to prefer the slightly less thin ones. While watching the cricket I’ve developed a bit of a thing for Beth Heath and Dani Gibson.

    Because a woman wanting freedom from motherhood can easily get it. She just doesn’t have children. So that trait is constantly weeded from the gene pool.

    Evolution works.

    One imagines that similar factors created the wicked stepmother syndrome. Which I’m naturally assuming was the cause of Sara Sharif’s death.
