This blog started as a result of a rather lively discussion on a celebrity gossip site. I don’t usually comment on those type of sites or articles but this one intrigued me- early marriage and motherhood was being criticized. I decided to give my two-cents worth about how I married at 22, became a mom at 22 and again at 24. This apparently angered many other commenters, resulting in me being called an idiot, fool, uneducated, ridiculous and some other umm… choice names.
I didn’t understand how these women, claiming to be pro fellow woman, were tossing insults my way, and in the way of a few others who had said more or less the same things I had. It made me wonder, do they feel I am less than they are because I choose my family first or do they feel that woman like myself are a dying breed and they need to put us down to feel better about themselves?
