Ok, I've watched many people blog about this, and i have agreed with the majority with the lack of compassion and support that has been showed. However i only just sat down to read the article myself this afternoon after a busy weekend, and i am just...i am furious!
Ms Goward, are you a fucking parent yourself?
I am absolutely calling for her sacking, because she is NOT fitted to be a "families" minister. How the FUCK is Jackie O endangering her baby to have her child in her arms as she crosses the road? How is that endangering her child?
I have talked before about my love of baby wearing and essentially holding your child in your arms is the same no? And i don't know about other parents, but personally i feel my children would be safer in my arms than in a stroller if were were crossing the road and something awful were to happen. So uhhh, maybe I'm a really terrible parent and i should have my vagina sewed shut to stop me from procreating and screwing up our human race any further, but how the fuck is holding your child in your arms when you cross the road dangerous?
What is dangerous about it?
Is it just because there is a bottle in the child's mouth? Because working a bottle really isn't a hard learnt skill, and i don't see how it would be distracting to crossing the road.
Are we as people that bored, are our politicians that freaking bored they have nothing better to do than to sit around and watch celebrities cross roads and then waste time bitching publicly about the way in which they cross the road?
Are you fucking kidding me?
When there are children out there being beaten up, suffering emotional abuse, being molested, or starved, no, it's apparently more important to police how "awful" it is to cross the road with your baby in your arms. The safest fucking possible place.
So Ms Goward, i would hide your sorry arse, because i am sure that there will be many mothers happily ready to tear you a new one.
And to other politicians or people who are lucky enough to have such a public soapbox, please think twice about what you say and how you would like yourself portrayed because Ms Goward has just lost any respect people may have had for her with that stupid piece of crap she dribbled.
And Jackie O? Keep on doing what you're doing, a wonderful job, and remember the stupid bullshit comments like this come from sad sad little people with nothing better to do. Feeding your baby while you walk? There is NOTHING wrong with that. Nor is there returning to work when YOU want to.
