This! Just this!
I hate the term full time mummy but I am aghast at this popping up on my feed!

WonderingAspie Wed 24-Feb-16 11:09:11

Wow! How amazingly ignorant!

I am a "full time mum" (as oppose to those part time ones obviously hmm) but through disability, not choice. I'd have to comment on it. Pointing out the stereotyping and ignorance and that fact that if anyone I know posts this I shall be telling them at least I know what they think of me.

Some people should be banned from social media on stupidity grounds.

What kind of friends have you got who'd post a thing like that? shock

Katenka Wed 24-Feb-16 11:11:00

Who isn't a full time mum?

Sparklycat Wed 24-Feb-16 11:12:10

It does seem to be a certain type of person that has their name as "Firstname 'full time mummy' Lastname" on Facebook though if you see what I mean...I think it's referring to that rather than every full time mum. Still very stereotyping though.

Where's the baby?!

MilkTwoSugarsThanks Wed 24-Feb-16 11:14:45

I'm a "full time mummy", yep I admit I do fuck all. However "the tax payer" is in no way affected by my choice.

So whoever posted that can FOTTFSOFAWTGTFOSM 😁

I take it this idiot who posted this has the same views on those married to Doctors who choose to be SAHP. Didn't think so. Yes I know the argument is they don't claim but the principle is the same.

Oh but I like scrounging off the taxpayer, it's more fun than getting a real proper job.

In reality, I have a 13 yo who is disabled and finding childcare for him for before/after school and the holidays is nigh on impossible. But according to my SIL I have an easy life and should never moan.

Maybe it was her that put it up, I'll have to check.

Gowgirl Wed 24-Feb-16 11:16:11

It was an aquantaince, I've since told her what I think of the post and de friended so I don't have to see any more, she always seemed normal up to now!

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Wed 24-Feb-16 11:17:07

Exactly Spocks. No one knows anyones circumstances, do they.

MouldyPeach Wed 24-Feb-16 11:17:16

Sorry but that picture is hilarious. There's only one 'mum' in it and she looks like she's mum to a blue plastic bag.
Sadly nothing surprises me with fb anymore sad

Gowgirl Wed 24-Feb-16 11:18:39

How do you get part time mum hours? I'd love to go to the loo alone occasionally....

startingmylifeagain Wed 24-Feb-16 11:22:01

How nasty! I've deleted /"hidden" people before who have somehow (can't think why) thought it's a good idea to share pictures like that , or even worse pictures by the Britain First brigade morons

BadDoGooder Wed 24-Feb-16 11:26:48

I'm a SAHM, because childcare would take all my wages and then some!
We are actually better off with me not working.
And apart from CB, I don't claim a bloody thing.

Still, it's always nice to know what people are thinking when they see me with DS at 11am on a Tuesday!! hmm

Gowgirl Wed 24-Feb-16 11:29:03

I don't claim anything but most of my family arehmm about me choosing to stay home, they'd pitch a fit if they knew about the mummy money allowance Dh pays me each month grin.

WonderingAspie Wed 24-Feb-16 11:37:11

" There's only one 'mum' in it and she looks like she's mum to a blue plastic bag."

PMSL. Shouldn't be surprised by people who are thick enough to come up with this shit though, that they forgot the actual baby. And if they wanted to make it really accurate, they needed a toddler, baby, with juice in a bottle, pierced ears, etc. Come on, let's not hold back on the serotype completely.

Gowgirl Wed 24-Feb-16 11:38:09

A fruit shoot!

AnnaMarlowe Wed 24-Feb-16 11:40:38

It's rather sweeping isn't it. I used to be a SAHM, the tax payer wasn't in any way inconvenienced.

hmcAsWas Wed 24-Feb-16 11:45:59

"I've since told her what I think of the post and de friended so I don't have to see any more"

Good, I'm glad Gowgirl. She deserves to be challenged

Gowgirl Wed 24-Feb-16 11:47:27

Thanks hmc, I also referred to myself as a house wife as I don't think mummy completely sums up my role lol

Everythinggettingbigger Wed 24-Feb-16 11:53:01

the term "full time mum" is one that makes me what because I work full time too what I do as a mum isn't full time? I still do all the same housework and homework etc with my DS now as I did when I wasn't "working", the only thing I don't do is the school run and believe me I would much rather be doing that than sat in my office!

the "friend" who posted this is very ignorant, but you never know she might be fed up of not being classed as a full time mum because she works in an office/shop too?

I hate all the mum bashing, everyone is doing the same "job" and its not easy! And that picture is brilliant it can be taken in so many ways it just depends on what type of person you are.....where are the kids?? for all we know they could be waiting on the other side of the road for the kids to come out of school grin the person who made the pic obviously isn't very nice!

stopfuckingshoutingatme Wed 24-Feb-16 11:55:44

for me their low was (allowing) posting a pic of two boys that had been burnt to death (in the Middle east) , this aint NOTHING!

Heatherplant Wed 24-Feb-16 11:55:57

Stuff like that on Facebook is really handy as it lets you know who to unfriend/unfollow. It tends to go hand in hand with 'Britain First' posts and other such ignorant crap.

I'm a full time mummy AND I have a career. The picture is silly and offends everyone equally.
