Happy Mothers Day

Recommended Posts


By Jodie Evans, The Women's Media Center

Mother's Day isn't about Hallmark and Teleflora -- it's a

call for women to gather for peace.


Women know that war is SO over. We know it in our hearts, in our guts, in our wombs. We know that the madness in Iraq and Afghanistan has to end, that we cannot keep sending our children to kill the children of mothers across the globe. Last month at an appearance in Turkey, President Obama himself said “…sometimes I think that if you just put the mothers in charge for a while, that things would get resolved.”

It is nearly 140 years since Julia Ward Howe wrote her Mother’s Day Proclamation, a pacifist reaction to the carnage of the American Civil War and the Franco–Prussian War. It flowed from her feminist belief that women had a responsibility to shape their societies at the political level. Every year since CODEPINK began in 2002, we have worked to remind the public and media that Mother’s Day isn’t really about Hallmark and Teleflora, but was a call for women to gather in “the great and general interests of peace.” Howe knew then what we know now. It will take women’s leadership to undermine what have become the USA’s greatest exports: Violence, Weapons and War.

If you are a mother you don't have time for a day of rest. This planet is a fucking mess and its YOUR responsibility to make it better for the children you selfishly bring in to the world. You chose to bring more humans into this world; taking proper care of them involves a hell of a lot more then diapers or dinner. If you can't handle the task of trying to better the world then don't fucking breed.

We did not inherit this land from our ancestors we are borrowing it from our children.


Happy Mother's Day to all mothers who are really doing the job. Breeders can fuck off today.:glasses:
