Current Facebook statuses doing the rounds: ‘I may not have a magazine perfect body or long flowing hair. I may not have loads of money and expensive clothes, but when I look in the mirror I see a proud mother working hard to raise my kids. Post this if you’re a proud mother’.
Translation: ‘Yeah, I’m a big fat pig and the excuse I’m using is that I’ve had a child. Copy this if you’d like to excuse yourself. ‘
My synopsis: ‘Don’t be proud, be ashamed’.
