“It doesn’t matter if you’re a cashier or a cook or a CEO, being a mother will be the hardest job you’ve ever had.” – Robin Farr, Scary Mommy
As if being a mom in 2015 wasn’t hard enough, apparently some people think you’ve got to stop being yourself, too.
A recent New York Post article criticizes celebrity mom’s in a very ugly way, starting with the gorgeous 45-year-old Jennifer Lopez.
After accusing Lopez of helping to “desensitize the public to the sight of exposed breasts and posteriors displayed like fresh pastries by attention-craving celebrities,” the author added a personal jab: “J.Lo, you’re a mother! Dress like one.”
Wanna be a hot mom? I’ve put together a whole tutorial for you in my book, How to Be a Hot Wife. Check it out, right here.
Her closed-minded criticism didn’t miss new mom Kim Kardashian either.
“She stripped down to her birthday suit and showed off her rotund hindquarters like a pair of oiled and ample ripe melons,” the author wrote about Kardashian’s now infamous photo shoot.
All I’m going to say is this: that so-called rotund derriere has helped to redefine the standards of physical beauty in our society today, and I, for one, am grateful for it. Yeah, I said it.
The author also took the opportunity to rip into the stunning and talented Beyoncé, mother of little Blue Ivy and wife to megastar Jay-Z. The nerve of sone people!
But in true Queen Bee style, Queen Bey shot back the classiest response possible.
“There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality,” she told OUT magazine last year. “There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist and a feminist whatever you want to be — and still be a sexuality being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”
And Kim Kardashian noted in a recent interview with Elle Magazine that “at the beginning, when you’re losing your pregnancy weight you don’t really know how to dress, so that just doesn’t count.”
“You just dress as simple as possible,” she added. “But I think since I’ve gotten in shape, and I feel good about myself, I dress I think sexier now than I did before.”
And what’s so wrong with that? Not one thing, if you ask me. Moms aren’t sexless unics, you know. It’s completely unfair of anyone to assume that motherhood means giving up your identity. Sure, certain things will naturally evolve in your life. But as long as your kids are happy, healthy and safe in your home, you’re on the right track.
Some people, especially certain women who mask insecurities with hate and even “conservative values,” just can’t handle who you are – but you can’t ever allow the negative noise to cause you to dim your light.
Instead, hand them a pair of shades and tell them to get ready, because you’re about to blind them with your light.
To Beyoncé, Kim and JLo, and to all the sexy mamas out there, sparkle on because you can. Shine your light because the world deserves to be illuminated by it. Don’t let the haters and the jealous bitches get you down. Burn off their darkness by shining brighter than ever before. Just my two cents. What do you thiink?
