Hey! You! Facebook Isn't a Baby Book! Quit Yammering About Your Son's Privates!Monica Bielanko
It’s not cool.
That’s personal stuff. And if I, a certified “mommy blogger”, am telling you that it’s too much, then listen, sister, it’s too much!
In another stellar edition of STFU Parents over on Mommyish, 4 reasons on why you shouldn’t discuss your son’s circumcision are listed. But seriously, if we have to list the reasons for you then you’re probably beyond help. Oh, all right. Here’s the gist:
TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
‘Nuff said. Just like you wouldn’t (I hope!) share info about your latest yeast infection, perhaps you might reconsider sharing info your son may later wish you hadn’t.
In this image from an actual Facebook page, courtesy of STFU Parents, we are introduced to Kaitlyn, who can’t stop giving the world a play-by-play of her son’s circumcision. To the point that even her husband, Kevin, tries to get mom to pipe down on his poor son’s behalf and yet she refuses to comply. But she does throw a smiley face his way so all is good, right?
And listen, by shutting up already you aren’t just doing your son a service but your friends will be grateful as well. Really! For every friend that leaves a comment, there are fifty that are wondering what’s wrong with your oversharing ass.
Back me up, people! Raise your hand if you think circumcision talk isn’t appropriate for Facebook!
