This morning Mia Freedman posted this article about Kim Kardashian, slamming her for posting a photo of herself in a swimsuit with a bit of side boob and her arse in the air, all while being a mother. Personally, I have seen more flesh at my local shopping centre but that’s not the issue.
I’ve shared with you all before that I have been in jail before. I was there for 2 months. Two long months. Two months is certainly long enough to know what the routines are, what is expected and to miss the things that you take for granted in the ‘outside world’. It’s this experience that makes me pissed off when I see people make flippant remarks about how ‘easy’ criminals have it in jail. It’s certainly easier for a lot of people than being out on the streets, but it’s certainly no walk in the park.
I’ve made it no secret that I enjoy a bit of trashy television. With posts about vjazzling and lingerie football, I really couldn’t hide the fact. Everyone’s definition of trasy tv is a little bit different. Some people think Neighbours is trashy tv, these people *cough cough* Devil Papa *cough cough* are also glad that looks can’t kill.
Over the weekend a parody hashtag was created on twitter called #fakemamamia. I personally thought it was hilarious. It bought together many like minded women who weren’t afraid to laugh at a situation and who realised that being a mum wasn’t all sunshine and lollipops and shit. What was created from this hashtag was Unreal Women. The start of a woman’s online mag that was breaking the norm. Until the mainstream got a hold of it. Sadly it’s over before it even began. All over a typo. Seriously. Death threats were sent. Seriously.
