More Violence: Yummy Mummies

by Black Captain

while taking responsibility for the safety, health, development, happiness and unpredictable bowel movements of a small child never felt like leisure to me, I realise that it might look like leisure to those who have never actually had to do it for any length of time … The very phrase “yummy mummy” leaks bile, marking mothers on their fuckability and almost always sneeringly deployed; it judges and dismisses women while expecting them to be grateful.
