Apparently people can find anything to complain about these days.
When Australian mom blogger Constance Hall posted a photo of her daughter in her shopping cart at the grocery store, she was making a point about how moms rarely get a moment to themselves — even during mundane grocery runs.
However, instead of commenting on the adorable picture of Hall’s tot, the judgmental people of Facebook banded together to criticize the contents of the busy mom’s shopping cart.
According to CafeMom, Hall has since deleted the bulk of the nasty comments where “people pretended to be concerned for her family’s health but really judged her” for her food choices. However, the proud mom posted a response comment that shut down the haters:
For f*** sakes. Getting mum judged on your anti mum judging page. Then everyone attacks the judgey mum even though your [sic] an advocate for women sticking together. And if I was to drink the stiff bottle of scotch that this thread made me want to drink I’d be judged for that. The bananas and celery and carrots and potatoes and onions and garlic and mandarins and apples aren’t visible in this picture — wasn’t thinking about trolley angles, I also buy a lot of fruit from the markets and Denims mum is bringing us fresh fruit from her trees today. Should I post the receipt?
Sometimes a cute picture of your child is just a cute picture of your child and shouldn’t be overanalyzed. Women then backed Hall up with supportive comments:
At the end of the day, it is no concern to you what other moms are feeding their family. So, as Hall reminds us in her comment, rather than judge each other, why not be supportive?
