Hero tag FTW!

Let the parents vs. childless fight begin!

I read the linked article, but decided to withhold judgement until I actually checked out her blog.  I mean, funny overcomes a lot of sins.  Problem? She's not funny.  At all.  Even a little bit.

Is the article about people who go overboard about posting pics of thier kids and stuff on the facebooks?

because, I'm kinda like.. "this is your child, Not a puppy"

we all worry about our privacy, but these parants are blasting their childerns early, formative years all over the internet like it aint no thang.

there is actually going to be a generation of childern out there, where every bit of thier lives from GESTAITION is going to be a matter of public record

I have 4. They are either teenagers or older. I've been there. You are quite correct.

On the bright side, people who have posted those photos along with pics of their house, the kids' schools, and their favorite parks and malls won't have to dig around for photos when all those kids go missing

Parents lives revolve around their kids, that's what it means to be a parent so here's a helpful hint, don't "friend" people that have kids if you don't wanted to be bombarded with pictures of Little Timmy with tampons up his nose after raiding mom's bathroom.

God yes. I have a coworker that shares her kids photos with me even though I don't want to see them. My boss has kids and my other coworkers have kids but they don't shove pictures of their kids in my face unless I specifically ask them about it.

Honestly, if you don't enjoy your friends happiness through their kids, block them.  Or are you so needy as to not ever let your friend count drop?  You can even personalize your feed to avoid people who you think post too much!  OMG, so many options.  Complaining about it should be your last one.

I don't want to see pictures of what your farking kids are doing 6 times a day. I know you are so proud you figured out how to pork and they look just like you but you must keep in mind that 90% of your socialmedia network does not give 2 farks.

/I know I can always unfriend/unfollow and that's what I do.
 
2013-04-05 06:16:34 PM
I have friends on Facebook who are single-issue posters. More than one of them only post pics of their kids. One only posts dog pictures and there's one who seems to post nothing but pictures of boats. I find them all equally annoying.

one woman has declared war on cuteness

Apparently, she has done so with her face.

/Woof!
 
2013-04-05 06:17:35 PM
This just in : many people who dominate social media constantly posting every random thought and massive numbers of pictures of their meals/children/pets/renovations/belongings/poop are very self involved and don't care what you think. More news at 11, when we discuss whether it is acceptable to beat people who don't stop sending us inspirational jpgs with horrible spelling and shiatty photos.

I don't have facebook (you're welcome, children of mine) so I'm not sure how this works. Are you somehow forced to look at pics of other people's kids? Who cares if they plaster their page with potty training pics? Just don't go look at them.
 
2013-04-05 06:19:45 PM
Pictures of other people's children, pets, or holidays are always very interesting.

Look, if you don't like children, go ahead and don't like them. That's fine. My son is turning 18 this year, and it's a big thing to me. If you don't like me, and the fact that it's a big thing to me... fine.

Subby calling this woman a hero because she hates people is farking ridiculous. Hate is not a heroic stance.

There are people who don't post every god damn thing that happens to their precious baby, and then, there are people whom are astounded by the advances of a human being... their offspring.. that they love unconditionally.

It's amazing. There are people out there telling you, "you don't know, you never have had to go through it." And, they're right.

Telling people you hate their babies makes you look like filth.

To me.

I'm a photographer and a proud parent. As my child gets older and wants to start dressing up as his favorite characters from cartoons/movies/comics I intend to take pictures of him as those characters. And I will post them to Facebook AND YOU WILL MOTHERfarkING LIKE IT!

All I ask of shutterbug parents, as a childless one who does find many offspring cute, please just keep the poo, pee, throwup, dirty diaper and other ickies to yourselves and fellow moms and dads? Other photos are just peachy.

Your friends recent activities show up on your news feed when you log into Facebook. If they post pics you see a preview of them there. There's probably ways to set who shows up on your news feed though, I deleted my Facebook after 2 months so I don't know for sure.

Read the article, and I am a parent.  Wasn't really offended.  To me the biggest problem with her argument is the same problem she has with the parents: nobody really cares or should care.

If you don't like the prevalence of child sharing, don't be friends with them or don't follow them.  Likewise, if you don't want to be made fun of, stop sharing every little moment of your precious snowflake's life.

In either case, complaining about it is like complaining water is wet or people vote differently or that internet has more cats than people.
