Allison Dixley, self-proclaimed “alpha parent” offered this charming suggestion on her Facebook page.
Referring to an old newspaper article entitled No excuses for being fat, say Tories, Allison recommends:
Read this article and exchange ‘obesity’ for ‘formula feeding’. No excuses.
I have a better idea. Read the article and exchange ‘fat’ for ‘a sanctimommy.’
Sanctimommies were told today there are “no excuses” for being obnoxious.
Tell sanctimommies that something is “natural” and they are offered the one thing we have to avoid: an excuse for being insufferable.
As it is, women who see more sanctimommies around them may themselves be more likely become sanctimonious. Peer pressure and social norms are powerful influences on behaviour and they are classic excuses.
See, Allison, no excuses for being a sanctimommy!
