I hate all those stupid copy and pasted things on FB. I always just see: “LOOK AT ME!!! I CARE ABOUT STUFF. I AM WORDLY, INSIGTFUL, AWESOME AND DEFINITELY BETTER THAN YOU, EVEN THOUGH I JUST COPIED THIS FROM SOMEONE ELSE’s FACEBOOK. 3 out of 4 people will not copy and paste this on to their wall, will you be one of those assholes?”

Ashley_BI am going to go ahead and assume you dont have kids. I may be wrong but as a parent I like these think they are true and cute. I can see being irked if bad parents post them. But I love my son and am pround to post it all over anywere I can because he is the best thing that has ever happened to me. But I am that kinda person even Mt FI knows I love my son more then anyone else(yes I have told him he comes second LOL) and more then likley untill I have another child it will stay that way. He is my #1.

@Gavinsmamma:  I think she was saying that it’s redundant to put something to the effect of “I agree with this” because everyone assumes you do, and that’s why you are reposting it.

They annoy me too.  I think it’s because I’m just going to operate under the assumption that every parent loves their child.  It’s not a contest.  It’s also not your entire identity, so if that kind of thing is all you are posting, I’m going to be annoyed.

Natalieh86:”It’s also not your entire identity, so if that kind of thing is all you are posting, I’m going to be annoyed.”

To some poeple being a parent is there entire identity. My Day/Week/month/Year revolve around my child.

I think it is just hard for people who dont have kids to know what it is like to love someone more then you could even ever love yourself.

There’s a big difference between loving your child more than yourself and not having any other interests/identity/things to talk about on facebook other than your role as a mother. Then again I would say the same thing about someone who talked non stop only about their career.

Yeah, there is a major difference in loving your children more than anything and completely losing your identity.  My mom is a completely devoted mom, but she has interests outside of her children.  There is also nothing wrong with taking some pre-kid time to love yourself more than anything else.  That way you’ve gotten that selfish streak out of the way before you have a child.

But, back to the topic at hand… I HATE these things.  I get so sick of seeing this crap on my wall.  “Share this if you have a dog/cat/kid/mother/cousin/etc.” that you love more than anything!  Or the religious ones.  I am a Christian.  I do not need to affirm my religious beliefs to all of FB in order for them to be valid.

I hate these too, but my hatred isn’t limited to the ones about parenting/kids.

“I say CHRISTMAS instead of all that other stuff and everyone who is offended can suck it! Repost if you aren’t a devil-worshipping heathen!”

“MURIKA. Bald eagles and tanks and flags…boo-ya! Repost if you’re not a communist!”

“It’s brothers/sisters/mothers/daughters/cousins/baby daddys week!” No. It’s just fucking not.

Sorry for getting carried away. This is a pet peeve of mine lol.
