My very first blog post, that I ever wrote was about judgemental Mother’s and how much I can’t stand them. You know? The types that’ll judge you because your child couldn’t speak fluent Spanish by the time they were 6 months old. Or couldn’t play the flute age 3 months.
That’s pretty much the kind of shite you’ll see on mumsnet.
Don’t fret I’m no ‘Mumsnetter’ type. I’d rather have intercourse with my deceased cat. I only briefly signed up (well I was only allowed on there for an hour) to stick up for a bullied mother. I went onto Instagram to do my usual stalking. And I saw a Mum clearly very upset about a mumsnet thread about herself (the second one that’s happened in a couple of weeks) It wasn’t a nice thread in fact it was pure rancid. It was slagging off her Instagram, and how she comes across as a bad ‘annoying’ mother.
The things they were picking at were her lifestyle, and where herself and her only child live. Basically, taking the piss out of her being a working class mother. The irony that only yesterday I wrote a blog post about snobby middle class mums! Who’d have known.
I had to say something. I had to do something. No, I’m no hero, I’m not a perfect person either (far from it) but I can’t stand bullying. Especially by snobby twats hiding behind a keyboard, whilst they tell their little Hugo to “hush now dahhhling, I’m battering a peasant mother on Mumsnet again. Because I’m miserable and lonely and your father is fucking his secretary which makes me one sad cliché”
This resulted with me being BANNED from mumsnet. While the bullies still carried on. Mumsnet did delete a lot of the posts because they’re cowards who would rather shove the bullying under an internet rug and carry on. This is outrageous behaviour. Before being banned, I had a rummage through other posts, each one was filled with cliques being absolute cunts about anything and everything.
“Oh don’t look at that insta-mum she’s hideous and believes her own hype” things you’d only imagine reading from a bitchy teenagers diary.
Hundreds, perhaps thousands of mums, dads and even children are being slagged off on this site. Repulsive stuff it really is.
What can we do? Not use mumsnet.
Do not collaborate in any way with them.
And ask Mumsnet how is this acceptable?
I’m sure the mum who was bullied is fine because she seems to be made out of tough stuff. And myself, well I didn’t lose any sleep over this. But what if someone out there is really hurt by something they see on this site? What if their Instagram page or child is being slagged off on there and they become haunted by those comments? Shame on you mumsnet. Shame on you.
