These days, you can get shamed for almost anything on the internet. It started with body shaming, but I am now informed that there is also mom shaming, where people make fun of mothers based on their different choices on how they’re going to raise their kids.
This stay-at-home mom decided she had enough of the mom shamers and posted this message on social media, basically shutting them down.
Karen Johnson, who operates a blog called The 21st Century SAHM, penned a powerful, brutally honest rant on Thursday that completely dropped the mic on pedestal parents, and she did it with more class than a new pair of shoes.
Since she posted this on her Facebook page, the post has received over 813k reactions and nearly 500 thousand shares.
When you read her rant, you’ll understand why the message got shared so many times. Regardless of how you raise your kids, this is a universal message targeted mostly towards the shamers, but also to open people’s eyes on how there’s not actually that big of a difference between stay at home moms and working moms.
Here’s the rant she posted on July 20th on the Facebook page.
And being that the post got so many shares and reactions, it’s only natural that it’s going to be flooded with positive comments, which it is.
Here are a few of the standout ones:
However, not all of it was positive feedback:
