Oh, internet. Tonight…. It was a night for the books. But before tonight…. It was the weekend. The weekend that my step daughter and my sister got to be in the same house!
So. I tried to be the cool mom. Sure, 9 year old. You can get online! But only where the 11 year old is so I can watch you both!
Do you KNOW how sneaky the 11 year olds can be? Im sure you do. But just in case you don’t, the answer… It is VERY. VERY VERY SNEAKY LITTLE ASSHOLE. It all looked well and good. Until I went into messages.
My 11 year old said THE MOST HATEFUL THING TO THE BABY! I honestly can’t even repeat it and its not even language its just…. Wtfuckery. Basically my kid was tryna be fuckin momo or something. Like. Dafuq?!
“Nooo it was just a joke nooooo you just dont get it NoOOOooo she was laughing! You just dont get the humor!”
Ha. Well I get that I can end the platform for your humor, kid.
So with that piece of backstory I bring you to tonight. I’m being told how AWFUL I am and how nobody is hurt by this “SMALL group of people with their own ideas and their own sense of humor it just doesnt hurt anyone I dont know WHY you dont GET that…”
So that terminology triggered a great teachable moment! I looked at her and said, “ya know who else was a small group of people with their own ideas? The kkk. And Im sure in the beginning they werent hurting anyone. It was just words and their own sense of humor. Words turn to actions turn to people dying because of one groups perception and it only takes ONE person to take it too far before you have an angry mob, or a LARGE group of people on the WRONG side of history!”
I mean… Reasonable link. Amiright? Like… These kids are suggesting DEATH to each other. As jokes. And already so many of them take it seriously… Look at the young suicide rates. But OH MY GAWD.
She has since SCREAMED at the top of her lungs about how I’m basically Hitler for comparing anonymous assholes to anonymous assholes (😂Im sorry, but my link REALLY worked. Idc how bad it sounded.) She has slammed doors, beaten herself with the remote(…why? Like really what fucking good… Ugh. Whatever) and cried herself dry of tears.
And now… In about 30 minutes Im calling lights out and turning everything off. If a snide remark made out of concern for this generation triggered a meltdown to rival Chernobyl…. I wonder what bedtime will bring tonight 😭😂
Send wine, y’all.
