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!

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Christmas is a special time of year. Families have their traditions to mark the festive year and some of those traditions are rooted in culture. Here are some of the ways various countries in Latin America celebrate Christmas.

El Pase Del Niño Viajero – Ecuador

El Pase del Niño Viajero is a pageant that happens in Ecuador that lasts weeks. The parade is meant to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph. The parade highlights the religious importance of Christmas in Ecuador and is most common in the Andean region of the country.

The biggest and most important parade is in Cuenca, a deeply religious city. Citizens near the city have all day to see the parade as it starts in the early morning and runs through the late afternoon. This gives people a lot of time to make it to the city to witness the parade.

La Gritería – Nicaragua

La Gritería comes after La Purisma. La Purisma is celebrated at the end of November and is meant to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. La Gritería is celebrated in early December and involves literal yelling. Someone would shout “Que causa tanta alegria?” (“What causes so much happiness?”) People respond “La Concepción de María.” (“Mary’s Conception.”)

Las Posadas – Mexico

Mexican posadas are the most recognizable. Posadas take place in Mexico from Dec. 16-24, though this year they are most likely to be virtual. The posada begins with a procession in the neighborhood filled with people singing and sometimes led by two people dressed as Mary and Joseph.

Another part is the posada party. Before guests can enter, there is a song exchange with the people outside playing Joseph looking for shelter. The hosts sing the side of the innkeeper saying there is no room. Eventually, the guests are welcomed into the home to celebrate Christmas.

Aguinaldos – Colombia

Aguinaldos are a series of games played by people in Colombia leading up to Christmas. There are certain games that are common among people in Colombia. One is pajita en boca, which requires holding a straw in your mouth the entire time of a social event. Another is dar y no recibir, which is about getting people to take something you are giving to score a point.

El Quema Del Diablo – Guatemala

El quema del diablo is celebrated in early December and is a way of letting go of the previous year. People burn piñatas and effigies of the devil to let go of all negative feelings and moments from the previous year. If there was every to try a new tradition, this would be the year. Burn an effigy and banish 2020 to the past, where it belongs.
