at the following comment, left in regards to the Duggar post:
I think that is tacky and judgmental, personally.
Who cares if they want to have 30 kids? Just because you wouldn't do it, doesn't make it WRONG.
First, when on Earth did I claim not to be tacky or judgmental? Hell-ooo, the words fuck and weiner gobbler are in the actual introduction to my website. I'd bet my baby that you found me through the parenting forum where my signature is my weiner gobbler business card and the words "don't click here if you're easily offended".
(I'd even go so far as to guess that you're one of the scrapbookers that are ticked because I pointed out that your friend can't sue a glue company because their bottle says washable and yet the gobs of it that a two year old smeared in his hair aren't coming out. You are a scrappy little group.)
As far as being judgmental goes, I have a theory that everyone is judgmental to an extent and if they deny it, they're lying or unaware. It's human nature and animal instinct to perceive differences in others and change your opinion of them or behavior around them accordingly. A friend of mine and I have a long running debate going about this and whether or not being judgmental of someone or having a negative opinion of someone are the same thing. So yeah, I'm judgmental. Even tacky most of the time. So sue me.
I do want to state for the record that in a debate, I always take the Duggars side. It comes up ALL THE TIME on Babycenter and I say as long as they can afford them and provide for them, rock on with their bad selves. Do I personally think it is INSANE to have a million kids (somewhere between 16-18 these days I think)? Hell yes I do. Do I think it's a little selfish even? Yes, I do. That oldest child has probably never even spent a full year without his mom being pregnant or having a newborn in the house. Do I think vaginas should be clown cars? No, generally I don't.
Whatever though. It affects me 0%. I'm impressed. They've got their shit together. Maybe they'll take my two. I do think she needs to go on extreme makeover and lose the mullet but it would be tacky and judgmental of me to say so. ;-)
I just wanted to clear up any confusion regarding my feelings for Michelle Duggar. I hold her and her poor tired va-jay-jay in the highest esteem and wish I was even 2% as on top of things as she is. As I type this, little kid is sitting on top of the side table throwing small toys into the Christmas tree. Yeah, I probably don't need one more kid. Actually, if I could get a couple of older kids, I could make this work. Set up a buddy system. Spend more time on the couch. Yes, Yes, I do need more kids. Some older ones.
Edited to add: Yeah, my Christmas tree is STILL up. Talk about tacky.
