If you do something odious, you will be judged. Vocally or silently.

Unpopular opinion – it pisses me off when childless people get all butthurt by the idea that “you don’t understand *something to do with having children* because you don’t have kids”. I mean – it’s just true. It’s like saying that you don’t know the taste of tomatoes when you’ve never eaten them or you don’t know what it’s like to be in Australia when you’ve never visited. I agree it’s irritating when its said with judgement or condescension, but come on. You don’t know what it’s like to have kids – because you’ve never had them (and I am childless). It doesn’t make you bad or anything, you just literally don’t know what that experience is like. 

Also, for the average person, America seems like the worst major Westernised country to live in. Everyone bangs on about America but jeez, it sounds truly awful being an ordinary citizen in the US. I’m not saying the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc are perfect – nowhere is – but at least there are strict gun laws, maternity leave, some form of state healthcare, humane vacation time (5 weeks is standard PLUS bank holidays!) etc. Being an ordinary American sounds terrible tbh. 

Plus everyone needs to get over themselves with showers and engagement parties and bachlorettes etc. Why do you need so many smaller parties to celebrate the fact you’re throwing a massive party?!

jannigirl :  

I don’t understand people who don’t work, have no desire to be educated, and would be content having someone else work their butts off to monetarily support them while they stay home. It just doesn’t sound like you love that person if you’re content to chill at home while the person you “love” is working to get educated & “bring home the bacon”. Ideally, wouldn’t everyone want to live a life of unemployed leisure if money just magically appeared in their bank account? Idk. I can’t wrap my mind around it. (I know this is super unpopular, but I honestly don’t understand it) 

But surely in the case of stay at home parents this is just capitalism not valuing unpaid labour? Like, if both parents choose to work (as is completely their choice), someone has to look after their kids – I don’t understand why people struggle to see being a SAHP as “work” when someone else is paid to do it as their work if you – the parents  – are working.

Oh yay.  This thread is back and I have more to share. 1) Yoga pants/work out gear/leggings were made for weekends/errands/lounging out at a coffee shop.  Going out for drinks at night with friends or date night? Then I’m wearing a dress. Down to the local coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon for a banana mocha? Leggings all the way.  I’m not coordinating a whole outfit for what is essentially lounging around and I don’t understand people that do.  How exhausting.   2) people who get asshurt about people who refer to their pets as their kids or about people who like their pets more than children.   If I call my cat my baby kitty it doesn’t take away any of the love you have for your child.   There’s enough love in the world to go around.   It’s ok.  Just breathe and keep posting videos on fb of your baby trying to sit up.  3) Having a post celebration party after you had a ceremony with the “people truly important to us” It’s your wedding so invite who you want but don’t get upset that people don’t want to travel or take vacation time to celebrate the event they weren’t close enough to witness.

Chicken strips should never be dunked in ketchup. (Per everyone else in my family, this is a very unpopular opinion of mine.) 🤣

I’m also another weird one who prefers home to travel.  I have traveled and enjoyed the experiences I had but the experience of owning my own home and being a part of a community just surpass all that, for me.

It grinds my gears when parents get asshurt about someone referring to their pet as their baby.  Me calling my cat my baby kitty isn’t taking away any love from your child.  Love is infinite.   Nobody is keeping track and doling it out.  It just reeks of insecurity whenever I hear a parent say, comparing your pet to a child is an insult.  I also can’t stand people who give up their pets.  I get it.  Pets are assholes.  They’re dirty and gross and unpredictable.   They’re hard to live with.  That all said, owning a pet is entirely optional.  Nobody is putting a gun to your head and forcing you to drive to a shelter, fill out the paperwork and bring a pet home.  That’s all on you. Think beyond,  I want a cute wittle puppy, before you decide to adopt a pet.  Can you handle it when that cute wittle puppy might need thousands in medical care  because he’s old?

beyondthesea :  I am two months late for this, but THANK YOU for posting the “Never Be the Same” song. I will hear it when I flip through the radio and her voice just grates on my nerves. I always ask my 12 year old who it is, since he should know current pop culture, but he listens to music from the 30s to the 80s (weirdo: and before any parents attack me for calling my kid a weirdo, we joke around. He would tell me if I actually hurt his feelings. Don’t crucify me please). I would Shazam it, but I don’t want to listen that long. Just the never be the same part will get stuck in my head. 

Sorry for rambling, especially to the people that have a pet-peeve of ramblers. 

My pet-peeves: Shows/ movies/ radio djs that try to push the boundary by being shocking. I hate Bridesmaids, the Hangover, Quenin Tarantino, Game of Thrones, etc.

People that have a staunch belief of their political party is always right and will argue anyone and everyone that has a different view. 

Adults that still act like they are in high school by trying to impress everyone with their social status. No one cares that you only buy name brands and drive a Lexus. 

Wine is gross. I am one of those people that only drink grape juice type sweet wines.  Peanut butter, sushi, and bell peppers are also gross. Bacon is not that amazing.

Friends, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Sex in the (and the ?) City, Grey’s Anatomy all suck. 

Summer, I really hate you. I would be cool with thunderstorms (and I live in Oklahoma, so tornadoes too) if we could avoid any temperatures over 80°. 

Just because I have a child doesn’t mean I like children. I don’t bore you with every little thing my child does, I don’t want to be bored by yours. Katelynn is not special because she can spell her name at 4 years old. I don’t care. 

I think your fad diet is stupid. I am sure your Keto diet is the best diet ever, but I don’t care.

I hate winter, snow is pretty but the slush is not. 

I hate The Walking Dead, dont watch dont care too

I hate mushrooms. If I want to swallow something slimy, I wont finish the sentence. Same with oysters. 

I hate camping because nature hates me. I have been bitten by a rattlesnake and almost died at 19. A bird and a squirrel once tried to attack me. Camping at my house is a night at a resort with all the amenities. 

Worse is that I just dont like Star Wars. That apparently offends a lot of people. 

 

Things I love:

Wine, Coffee, Chocolate, hot summer days, my secret shame is Im a Harry Potter junkie.

Tiramisu….favorite dessert.

-when people come into a makeup store and brag about how they don’t wear any makeup (wtf!)
