Want to hear a surprise? I’m pissed about something. Shocking, yes?
Here’s the deal… I’m sure you’ve all heard the the Duggar family lost their 20th child mid-second trimester. For some reason the entire world at large feels the need to voice their opinion on how this is all their own fault. Every person with a keyboard feels the need to criticize their family and reproductive choices. It was bad enough before the memorial service, but now there’s even more shit to throw because this grieving family had memorial photo’s made of their baby and *gasp* displayed them at that child’s memorial service.
I do not understand for one second how anyone whose name is not Michelle (or Jim Bob) Duggar can think Michelle Duggar’s reproductive choices are their business. Furthermore how it is anyone’s business how these people choose to grieve for or memorialize their child? On what planet is it OK to offer criticism rather than sympathy for a family in pain? Sure they’ve made lives public and because of that they are subject to asshats being asshatty, but MY F’ING GOD what kind of MONSTER DOUCHE judges a grieving family like that?
They made decisions that you wouldn’t have? Hey guess what?!?!?!?!? That’s their right! They have a right to have as many kids as they want. They have a right to raise those children however they want. You know what else? Should the worst happen, they have the right to grieve and memorialize HOWEVER THEY WANT. The absolute only appropriate response is to convey condolences to the family.
OK, I think that’s it. Sorry if that was a bit disjointed. I’m just really pissed at the public outpouring of judgment and criticism towards people who just need the EXACT OPPOSITE of that right now.
