Several of my FB friends are "following" a family's FB page that they set up after the kid was nearly killed in a freak accident (a tree branch fell on him on a windy day). There is another local kid who is dying of the worst disease I've ever heard of and they all comment on the updates with promises of prayers so these things show up in my newsfeed.
It's unnerving. It reminds me of Livia Soprano and her constant talk of kids being accidentally electrocuted or attacked by sharks. Do you know anyone like this?
After you put the clothes in the washer/dryer, the dishes in the dishwasher, pay the boy next door to mow the lawn... what's left to do? Unless they homeschool, not a lot. Facebook brought most of them onto the internets bigtime. And then there's cable. They use these horror stories to brainwash their families into boring lives in which Mom is the star.
Fraus, cunts, women, whatever you want to call them are obsessed with a lot of things. The fact that they are obsessed with strangers kids is not surprising in the least OP.
What's with all of the women-hating threads the past few days? They must all be the handiwork of the same deranged misogynist.
