A Woman Went On A Rampage On Facebook And Said She Hated ‘Childless Women’ At Disney ‘With A Burning Passion’

Whether you’re a grown adult or a toddler, it’s safe to say that stepping foot inside of a Disney park will always fill you with warm and fuzzy feelings–no matter how long you know you might have to wait in line for a refreshing michelada, a warm churro, or a sweet Dole Whip. Disney was built to be a comforting destination for people, children and adults alike. So of course, visiting a Disney theme park will always be a special experience that many people will save money and time for, no matter what age we are.

Which means yes, we’re going to feel some type of way when someone makes the claim that if you’re an adult, with no kids, you should stay at home. 

Because excuse me, what? 

On July 19, Twitter user @JenKatWrites shared a screenshot of a Facebook post where a woman argues that “childless couples” should not be allowed at Disney theme parks.

The screenshot of a Facebook post featured the words of a Facebook user who argued that adults who did not have children should not attend Disney theme parks. The anonymous mother wrote that “It pisses me off TO NO END!!!!! when I see CHILDLESS COUPLES WITHOUT ANY [KIDS] AT DISNEY WORLD!!!!!” That featured some very non-child-friendly expletives and a trove of emojis.

The woman who penned the Facebook post went on to say that millennials will never understand the “joy and happiness” it brings to mothers when they buy their babies treats and toys at Disney theme parks. 

“DW is a FAMILY amusement park!!!!! yet these IMMATURE millennials THROW AWAY THEIR MONEY ON USELESS CRAP!!!!” the user wrote.

(Trust, we understand the joy. It’s the same we feel when we spend our hard-earned money on a tasty michelada from Disney California Adventure). 

The rant signed off with the words that the user hated”childless women with a BURNING PASSION!!!!”

Yikes.

Once Twitter got wind of it, there was no turning back.

“This is my new favorite wild mommy post. It’s me, the millennial slut who just goes to Disney World to make children cry,” Twitter user @JenKatWrites wrote in her initial tweet. 

Although it looks like the screenshot of the original Facebook post was dated “September 22” of an unknown year, the content of the post was enough to send Twitter users who felt attacked spiraling. 

Users were quick to point out that the most offensive proponents of this post weren’t the millennial shaming, but the actual callousness of hatefully attacking women who did not have children. As if, for many women not having children is a choice, instead of a massive burden that they carry as they struggle with pregnancy complications and miscarriages. Let’s not forget that the user also grossly overlooked the fact that a destination like Disney can be extremely triggering for women who do not have children and wish that they did.

Twitter was also quick to clap back because we’re so over the millennial shaming. Like, really, get a new joke people.

But also because millennials love a good pair of rose gold colored Minnie Mouse ears, so just let us live our best lives, okay?

Sounds like a pretty legit life goal to us. 

This Twitter user’s argument is very relatable to a lot of (currently childless) Latinx kids who went to a Disney theme park ONCE growing up or none at all.

“So because my parents couldn’t afford to take me to Disneyland when I was a kid, now that I’m an adult with no kids of my own I’m just supposed to not go because I chose not to have kids myself,” wrote the Twitter user. Honestly, say it louder for those in the back. 

Another Twitter user AND FELLOW MOTHER shared that she, in fact, would “LOVE to go back and enjoy the rides and attractions” without her kids.

“But seriously, what an embarrassment. Amusement parks are for everyone,” she added. 

One person on Twitter shared the New York Post article and recalled a time when another mom at Disney told her “THANK GOD YOU’RE MAKING MEMORIES HERE BEFORE YOUR KIDS RUIN IT!!”

See? Can’t we just enjoy Disney to the fullest until we have to be the scorned person who hates seeing other childless couples enjoying their time at the amusement park without having chasing their toddlers all day? 

Others found loopholes in the woman’s plan to enjoy Disney without people that haven’t birthed any children.

The woman had also written that “People without CHILDREN need to be BANNED!!! Mothers with children should be allowed to skip ALL THE LINE!!! YOU HAVE NO F*CKING IDEA WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE TO STAND IN LINE FOR 3 HOURS WITH A CRANKY TIRED EXHAUSTED TODDLER!!!” 

Anyway, reading that Facebook post in full was a mouthful. But childless millennials, keep on doing you. Enjoy your Disney churro!

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Last week, Mexican feminist activists took over the National Human Rights Commissions federal building in a move to bring greater awareness to the scourge of gender-based violence and femicide that has racked Mexico for decades.

According to the federal Interior Secretariat, the statistics in Mexico have recently taken a turn for the worse.

Domestic violence against women has became an even more acute problem since the pandemic has forced women to stay insider with their abusers. Emergency distress calls reporting domestic violence have risen by 50%.

The occupation of the Human Rights building is just another chapter in the saga of the “Ni Una Menos” (Not One More Woman) movement, an anti-femicide collective born in Argentina that has steadily been gaining steam in Mexico since 2019.

In recent years, anti-femicide demonstrations have been sparked by various heinous crimes against women or girls that have been largely overlooked by law enforcement officials.

Unfortunately, the government of Mexico has appeared to be apathetic to the wave of femicide that is overwhelming the women of their country.

Recently, when President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was asked to address Mexico’s gender violence epidemic, he demurred, stating that he didn’t “want femicide to detract” from the raffle his administration was holding for the sale of the presidential airplane.

As for the feminist activists at the heart of Ni Una Menos and the federal building occupation, the government’s failure to respond to anti-woman violence is the primary fuel for their anger. 

“We’re here so that the whole world will know that in Mexico they kill women and nobody does anything about it,” said Yesenia Zamudio to the LA Times. According to Zamudio, she is still seeking justice for the murder of her 19-year-old daughter four years ago.

The women of Mexico appear to be fed up, grasping at any and all tactics that have the potential to incite change on a grander scale.

Their tactics may seem dramatic to some, but it’s undeniable that they are no longer being ignored. As of now, the radical activists are pulling attention-grabbing stunts like decorating a portrait of Mexican Revolution leader Francisco Madero with lipstick and purple hair.

They’re also making headlines for vandalizing the federal building’s walls and splashing paint on the doors of the presidential palace.

One thing is for sure: something has to change. Otherwise, thousands of innocent women and girls will continue to be raped, abused, and murdered while their perpetrators escape with immunity.

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

After weeks of speculation and anticipation, presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he has officially picked his running mate.

In a history-making announcement, Biden revealed that he had tapped California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his VP Pick.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden announced in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Biden held his first campaign event alongside running mate Kamala Harris in Delaware.

During their speeches, the two candidates wore masks and kept their distance in keeping with COVID-19 standards.

Speaking about his VP pick, Biden described Harris as coming from an “America’s story.” Biden described Harris as “a child of immigrants” who “knows personally how immigrant families enrich our country as well as the challenges of what it means to grow up Black and Indian-American in the United States of America,” he explained. “And this morning, all across the nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and brown girls that feel overlooked and undervalued in their communities, but today — today just maybe they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way as president and vice presidents.”

In a speech of her own, Harris emphasized the importance of family and urged citizens to vote.  “We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be,” she said. “Joe likes to say that character is on the ballot. And it’s true,” she explained. “I’ve had a lot of titles over my career and certainly vice president will be great. But ‘Momala’ will always be the one that means the most.”

Harris’s nomination makes her the first Black and first Indian-American woman on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris is a former prosecutor from California who challenged Biden in her own presidential bid last year. Her nomination makes her the fourth woman to appear on a major presidential ballot. Before her, Geraldine Ferraro ran as a Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984. In 2008, Republican Sarah Palin ran as a vice presidential nominee, later in 2016, Hillary Clinton became the Democratic presidential nominee.

Biden’s choice was one that has long been in the works. In March of this year, he revealed that he would make a point to have a woman as his running mate and in July he announced that he had narrowed his picks down to four Black women.

Kamala Harris was elected to Congress in 2016.

This has been Harris’ first term as a senator. Before, she served as the California attorney general. During her time as AG, Harris formed a lasting friendship with Biden’s late son Beau who was attorney general at the time in Delaware. Writing about Beau’s death, in her memoir The Truths We Hold, Harris recalled that “there were periods when I was taking the heat when Beau and I talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day,” she wrote in her memoir. “We had each other’s backs.”

Biden’s son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. Harris attended his funeral.

During his announcement, Biden mentioned Harris’ friendship with his son.

“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse,” Biden tweeted. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

So far, it seems there are quite a bit of Harris x Biden supporters.

Fans were quick to give their support and applaud her candidacy.

In a tweet acknowledging her nomination, Harris wrote “@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Here’s to 2020 y’all. Get ready to make history.
