Some Facebook mom memes are sweet and some are self-deprecating and silly. Some are clever. Some express the universal joys and frustrations of being a mother.
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.

If my husbands ex just to take a minute and read this… right away she would that’s not her… even when she’s telling everyone that her daughter is never going to leave her and always be with her… everything that this article talks about guy mother is all her… to the extent that she’s the one that determines if and when my husband will see her daughter… she’s even gone to the extent of not working has a complete mess all over her house including her daughters room you can’t even see her bed… and has a boyfriend at home that doesn’t work… they live off my husbands child support and she uses her elderly parents to pay her bills and kids clothes and her daughters school because her daughter has to go to catholic school…
These women are sick. My wife just left with her two kids, and I helped raise them for almost 10 years. She decided that they were ‘abused’ by me because I turned off stopped paying a bill for my wife after she left. I never once yelled at them, but I ‘abused’ the kids…
These women are sick people. No healthy person would be so selfish as to take away the only father two kids ever had over their husband not paying a bill for a month. That’s hurtful to the kids too, but these psychos seriously think the world only cares for them.
Half her family doesn’t talk to her, and my whole family won’t. Somehow, ‘the whole world’ hates me in her mind. They live in an alternate universe on Facebook. They don’t realize that none of those people really give a shit about them… They seriously think they have a fan club!
I am just amazed by the insanity…
