nicoffeine: 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.

I've been reading her blog for about a year or so now. I like it. It amuses me. I'm not saying it is the greatest example of comedy that ever comedied, but I still enjoy it.

It isn't so much the parents that post pictures of their kids that she posts about; it's the pictures of things people shouldn't even taking pictures of let alone posting for others to see such as poop, blood, vomit, and births.

She also comments on those parents that can't talk about anything other than their kids to the point where they "mommyjack" someone else's status among other things. "Oh your friend just died, well it is little Susie's 14 month birthday party this weekend, sorry you'll be at a wake and can't attend!"

The blog's motto is "you used to be fun, but then you had a baby."

I love hearing about my friend's kids and seeing pictures of them and such, but I like to be able to know you are still a person.

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.

daveinsurgent: I don't get it. How is sharing something about your children any different than anything else one might share on social media? There is absolutely nothing you could ever share on social media that some part of the "audience" (term used very loosely) will care nothing about. This woman is a stupid, smug biatch - but she's super clever, getting the child-free twits to fork over their cash. Good job.


It's not the babies, it's the aerial photos of poopy diapers, green vomit after eating spinach, or Junior's First Poop In The Toilet that we can all do without. Heck, I have 2 infants and I would eat broken glass before I would post photos of their poop/vomit, less my own bloody placenta, on Facebook. That stuff is nasty by any definition. Babies are cute.; their poop filled diapers are not. Not wanting to see the latter doesn't mean you hate the former.

I've been reading her site for a year or so and I love it. Call me crazy, but I think it's completely inappropriate to post pictures of shiat in a kiddy toilet, or highjack somebody's non-child related  status update to make it about your kid.

I'm also farking sick of everybody looking at me like I've shot somebody when I say I don't want kids.  Or when I say I want to get married but don't want kids I get people asking "what's the point?"

Plenty of us are living happy, child free lives thankyouverymuch.

But that's neither here nor there. I'm happy for a friend who posts a birth announcement or a pregnancy announcement, or a big milestone. But I don't want to hear what your kid had for dinner, or  what's in their diaper, or how they're far superior to every other child on the planet. It's obnoxious.

I have put three oversharers into "Hide" mode.

One updates no less than 20 times a day, always on her childrens' mundane daily activities, often accompanied by a picture.  I upset her and her friends when I told her that the fact that her and her husband had not been on a date in two years was not a good thing, and they should take one night a month just for the two of them.

One chronicles her child's never ending trips to the doctor for unknown maladies.  I am really starting to think there's a Munchausen by Proxy thing going on here.

The third one posts pictures of her kid's sporting events twice a week.  By posting pictures, I mean she posts at least 100 pictures every time.  There are 400 pictures of one game.   There are multiple comments about how the refs were biased, how the other team behaved in an unsportsman like way, etc etc.

Personally, I limit my pics and bragging on my child to the milestones and actual achievements.  Prom pictures, and congratulating her on winning a couple of musical competitions were the about all I crowed on in the last couple of years.   The main reason being I don't want to embarass her.  Which is also the reason I rarely post or comment on her FB page.

Oh, and some of you really didn't read the article, did you?

See, that's the problem with "people like you."

"People like you" don't have to have children. "People like you" are simpletons who, for whatever reason regarding whatever subject, take a legitimate criticism that's made somewhat in jest, and you turn it into a grandiose, PERSONALIZED issue.

Hopefully, your children don't adopt the same selfish, pitiful traits that have ingrained themselves into your personality.

See it's like this: They like their friends and want to keep up with them, but they don't like their friends posting literally everything their children do.  shiat gets old.  No one finds your child as interesting as you do.  Sure, they could block their childed friends or give up facebook altogether, but that's throwing the bathwater out with the baby.

I like the way my one pair of college friends do it. The only time we hear about their kids is when the kids did something genuinely funny, are dressed in costumes for our amusement, very clearly enjoying a toy we or some other friend sent or if they have a legit milestone to celebrate, such as first word, first steps or first defeat of an adult at a video game.

My favorite picture of my little goddaughter is the one of her excitedly beating her Dad at Super MarioKart on the NES/SNES/Sega multi-console I sent for her fourth birthday. The look of triumph on her adorable little face, and the look of 'dafuq?!' on her Dad's, followed by the heartfelt and loving death threat he sent me, of such things are family-friendships truly made.

Well, she's got a point in that anyone out there (I don't know any but I can easily imagine there are some) who is posting pictures of their kids' dirty diapers or products of a long night of food poisoning with a proud comment of "See what little Johnny did today!" has gone a little too far. We'll be hearing about Johnny in a few more years, when he rapes, eats and murders half his class, I'll bet. And the bit about the mom who posted a pic of her kid's burns after he fell asleep on the radiator is downright scary.

That said, do post pics of your child being Batman. Those are just priceless.

This. It's not a matter of having to look at kids or what not. It's a matter of living in an age where even though it's extremely easy to share, some folks just haven't been able to develop that filter of, "wait, just because this interests ME, maybe it won't interest even a minority of the people I know." It's a matter of decency in maintaining a reasonable SNR for what you throw at you friends.

What does that have to do with children specifically though?  Doesn't that go for ANYTHING that anyone might be doing in their lives, that might not be as interesting to all their friends?

Yes, she is a hero in my book.... and you are not, and that hurts your widdle mommy-feelings, doesn't it?

You think everyone who hasn't re-produced is a "failure"..... .and that makes you a sad person. I feel sorry for your child.

In the psychological field this is called "projection".  Sorry you feel like a failure, but it's not the fault of people raising children.

Ummmm.... can you read? She called people who defended the Blogger in the article failures....where do you get that I am making that up?

I can think of a few choice psychological terms for you if you can't realize that is not projection, but thanks for playing!



You're actually saying this as you defend a blog centered around being a bitter little biatch about other people's facebook profiles.  I'm not a psychologist, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't say very many good things about your mental state.  If they were all deliberately sending you pics in emails every morning that would be another story, but when someone updates their profile they're probably just putting it up there for their family or for people that really do want to see, and they assume if you didn't want to look, you wouldn't or would just remove them from your feed.  Your experience probably doesn't even cross their minds, because you are not the center of their universe.

The important thing for them is to find a way to look down on everyone else.  If it wasn't other people's kids that annoy them, it would be something else.  Either that or it's just a spoiled brat reaction like "damnit, everyone around me is growing up, and they keep talking about it, and I want to just keep going on talking about the same shiat I did when I was 22 forever!"

You get the idea. Between the childless people posting pictures of their cats or dogs sitting and looking out windows and people with kids posting child updates every hour, it quickly gets over the top.

I understand posting something about a big occasion, like a birthday, first steps, or they're worried about asking friends for advice on XY or Z - but I've had enough of the doting parents and their the hourly updates on today's walk in a park with Jr.

You realize this happens in face-to-face conversations, not just on facebook, right? Might want to take some time away from the computer.

There at least 2 filters you can employ.

1. It's a voluntary service you sign up for.
2. You can choose to block specific users.

I know not everyone who has beseiged me with friend requests wants to see pictures of the kid. But my parents, aunts, uncles, etc. sure do. Facebook is a good way to do that. Deal with it.

You could always jump to google+ and make circles, I guess.

You get the idea. Between the childless people posting pictures of their cats or dogs sitting and looking out windows and people with kids posting child updates every hour, it quickly gets over the top.

I understand posting something about a big occasion, like a birthday, first steps, or they're worried about asking friends for advice on XY or Z - but I've had enough of the doting parents and their the hourly updates on today's walk in a park with Jr.

You are officially Farks biggest asshole for taking your friends photos from facebook where they shared them with YOU (not the entire Internet) and posting them on Fark.


Was thinking the same thing when I saw that post.

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.

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.

Donnchadha: Nadie_AZ: Oh it's this thread again.

This thread is nothing compared to being kept up all night by a colicky child. Just you wait....


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

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.
