Hey, Emily? What are you currently hating?
I'm so glad that you asked. I am currently hating on the Duggar family. I know, I know I've discussed it before. But my friend Jessica likes to get me going on that topic so she reminds me of how much I can't stand them quite frequently. And since I like to be one of those people that generally looks down on the Duggars, I thank her. Today she sent me a link to play a game to guess the kids' names and win tater tot casserole. Tater tot casserole...I'm sure it does wonders for the digestive system.
And along those lines, I also can't stand Jon and Kate + 8. I'm sorry, I just do not feel sorry for people that have twins and then go ahead and get implanted with 6 more. Talk bad about my behind my back now.....ok. Am I supposed to feel like less of a mom because I only have one kid to run after?
I'm also hating on Bill Maher. I've never liked the man (what? shocking I know). It has less to do with the fact that he is a liberal and more to do with I just think he's crass, unimaginative, uneducated, and overall a loser. But now, let's add ignorant to the list. He recently embarked on a diatribe about breastfeeding. I won't repeat it here because, like everything else he says, it's crass. But you can look it up on YouTube if you like. There are so many things that I want to say in response to it (like: Breastfeeding ... lazy? Can you hear the collective laughter from moms? also: Planning ahead with a baby? Again...collective laughter. ) but I will stick with this: Someone should tell that sexist, rude, uneducated, ignorant idiot that if he thinks that he can handle the planning, the cracked nipples, the middle of the night feedings, the 24/7 feedings, the engorgement, the boobs that weigh more than a tire, the weaning, the random "leakage" any better than any woman, he is more than welcome to come and breastfeed my next one. Or if that's not good enough, he can send me a check once a month to buy formula.
