Coupla Mom Links: "Women are the same as humans."
Hey. It’s a gloomy Tuesday, Mom! And I’m in a funk.
Everywhere, the world seems teeming with tragedy, oppression, and anxiety. And it’s old news that women have it the worst. Like, always and (ugh, feels like) forever.
On point, here are some hookups to more bummer stuff that doesn’t wanna budge:
Everybody’s getting amped about this piece about inequity in domestic labor- “What the ‘Good Dads’ Get Away With” by Darcy Lockman
After the 5th death of a migrant child in the hands of US border patrol, this mournful lamentation on “The Lasting Trauma of Mother’s Separated from their Nursing Children.”
Why Black women, particularly Black moms, keep doing the work for the rest of us- “Mom Talk: The Political Power of Black Motherhood”
I know it’s getting to you but…
Stay Cool, Mom.
P.S. The Yellowhammer Fund provides resources to “humans” seeking safe abortions in the state of Alabama (or wherever the hell they have to go).
