I admit I have a horse in this race, given I have children and am rather fond of their mother, but stuff like that article fucking infuriates me.
I've had at least one Facebook post in a similar vein reminding us all to remember those who have lost their mother (or a child), who can't have children, who are estranged from their mothers, etc. because today can be really hard on them.
Yeah, no, that ain't how it works. Mothers get one day a year dedicated to celebrating them. I know it's a Hallmark holiday and all that, but I'm okay with putting aside my cynicism if it encourages us to pause and acknowledge mothers for a moment. It's an extraordinarily hard job, even under the best of circumstances, and (most) mothers deserve more than a little gratitude. You don't get to shit all over that and try to steal some of the spotlight just because seeing other people praised makes you haz a sad.
