Then there are mom memes that, if you aren’t both a mother and a raging narcissist/emotional cripple, make you want to throw up in your mouth a little while rolling your eyes. Hard.
Like the one posted to the left, for instance. That isn’t just a mom meme. It’s a Golden Uterus mom meme.
Crazy uses and abuses social media like it’s her own personal PR firm, 24/7 all-you-can-eat ego buffet, selfie billboard, random thought receptacle and battleground where she wages war against her “enemies” all rolled into one. Facebook Golden Uterus mom memes are usually about the self-aggrandizement of the sheer awesomeness of Crazy’s gilded loins, how hard it is to be a mom, how moms are way better than fathers, and, in some cases why dads aren’t even necessary and why a child, even an adult child, must be forever grateful to mommy and put her first above all others.
Crazy posts these memes for different reasons. Sometimes she’s doing a victory lap, or sending “coded messages” (the middle finger) to her ex (or his new wife). Sometimes she’s communicating with her Golden Uterus mom cohorts in a Golden Uterus validation echo chamber. And sometimes she’s chest thumping, pity seeking or attention seeking. Heck, when it comes down to it, it’s all attention seeking behavior, isn’t it?
Whatever message Crazy thinks she’s communicating, we think her narcissism and penchant for emotional incest come across proud, loud and clear. If you think these kind of memes are harmless and not indicative of characterological pathology, just try replacing mom/mother for dad/father and see how the copy reads.
With Mother’s Day fast approaching as well as the release of Say Goodbye to Crazy, we will be discussing Facebook Golden Uterus mom memes on the next SGTC (formerly known as Going Mental) scheduled for Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 2pm EDT, 1pm CDT and 11am PDT.
