Then there are mom memes that, if you aren’t a mother who’s a raging narcissist, will cause you to roll your eyes right out of their sockets. 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.” Facebook Golden Uterus mom memes are usually about the self-aggrandizement of the sheer awesomeness of the narcissistic mother’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” (i.e., 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. Basically, it’s all attention seeking behavior.
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.
