Welcome To The Bitchery

Behold, an excerpt from my FB feed, regarding daycare and the usual judgment of working versus stay-at-home mothers. “Parent” is used interchangeably with “mother,” and there are exactly 2 mentions of fathers out of almost 80 comments about the double-bind of parenting and work.

ETA: Yes, it was excerpted from PopSugar moms’ FB page by a crazy FB friend, so naturally it’s mother-focused. But the lack of acknowledgment of different family structures, economic privilege, implied (usually male) income, and the disconnection of men from child care and anything domestic is pretty telling.
