Hallmark Shamelessly Pits Mothers Against Mothers
What is a decorated apple and a creatively shaped sandwich compared to a store bought Hannah Montana Valentine’s Day card?
Hallmark is a hollow and heartless business capitalizing on the alleged mommy wars. The much-fabricated war perpetuated by people who shame women with children for going to work, and in turn shame women with children for staying-at-home, and in a combination move, shame women with children for working and playing the role of a stay-at-home mom (a role creative by who/what?). Of course whose to say, which of the girls mother stays-at-home and which goes to work? There is no evidence. But that is the nudge-nudge, wink-wink, isn’t it. Society conditions us to believe the children who are treated better have mothers who stay home, and mothers who work neglect her children. Even it if is not a nudge-nudge, wink-wink situation, do not fret, because the superwoman trope has already been defeated as well. So, if all of the mothers work, or if all of the mothers stay at home, there is a loophole that will provide criticism. Nothing is as fun as insulting mothers (women) —-while making a buck.
All the while, we know what is being said behind the working-mother’s back, and I am not alluding to what the stay-at-home mothers are saying.
