So I had a status on Facebook. My mom saw it and went CRAZY because I used the word 'b*tch", but in a humorous context.
This is the status:
So I'm listening to these On-Star commercials. Each time I hear the one about the woman who left her 6-month kid in the car, and how On-Star saved them, I don't think "Oh look, On-Star is so useful!", I think "What stupid b*tch leaves a 6 month baby in a car?"
You see, nothing terribly bad. I understand "b*tch" isn't a clean word, but I mean, I'm a junior in high school, and these words are extremely familiar, sometimes even on regular TV-PG shows. But my mom sees it WAY differently. She called me a male chauvinistic pig, said that I'm a very filthy boy, and said I'm going to do things like crime and rape later in my life and end up in jail.
My reaction was "WHAT THE F*CK?"
Also one time, I saw a weight bench on craigslist that I really wanted, for a really good price, and I told my mom about it. She was SO reluctant to go because the area of town wasn't really all that great, but still generally good, and she was saying that I'd be responsible for her death (by crime, even though the house we were going to is near a school), and we were "driving to our deaths" and whatnot. Today the bench is perfectly fine, and nothing happened.
This is also in the teen misc, but I thought it'd also be nice to ask women who are mums themselves
