Arseholes…. The Internet Is Full Of Them

This week there seems to be quite a few arseholes on the internet. I am generally quite oblivious to this kind of behaviour, however in the past couple of days I have noticed.

I have noticed these rude, disgusting human beings. The kind of people that feel it is their right to fat shame children. To insult parents for their choices and disrespect their babies. There is nothing right about that!

Lauren from The Thud did a Facebook Live video the other night that sums up exactly what I, and I’m sure the majority of real, not perfect parents have to say. You must check it out!

But the arseholes don’t stop at pathetic journalists. A dear friend of mine recently purchased a unique jewellery business and has been working her absolute arse off to give it the boost and online presence that it needs and deserves. All while wrangling her toddler, baby and day job.

In an effort to reach out for guidance, help and advice about her business, she was faced with a giant slap in the face. These women, who are in a women’s business Facebook group, offered harsh and unjustified remarks.
The lovely Eva from The Multitasking Woman, has purchased Knotlace. A fun, unique and affordable jewellery option that can accessorise your outfit with next to no effort!

I have a Knotlace review coming up on the blog soon but I would love it if you lovely ladies are looking for a piece of everyday fashion jewellery that you click over and check out her Knotlace products. There is currently a sale on and I have an extra 15% OFF discount for you – USE CODE: AMS17.

It appears to me that the desire to help one another has been lost. The desire to encourage, support and get one another over the finish line has vanished. These keyboard warriors, these rude and inconsiderate people that think they are doing the world justice, are simply tearing people down. Tearing down tired, hardworking parents and fat shaming children. I mean who fucking does that?! Seriously!

Today, do something to help another person. Say something nice.
Give a little. Lift someone’s spirit and make a positive change.

    There are a lot of arseholes around! Online and offline! They are obviously forgetting their early parental advice of if you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all!

    I seem to have missed a lot of this – thankfully. I do wonder why people are so quick to tear each other down. There is a whole lot of anger and abuse that seems to jump out at every post and article online.

    I don’t understand why people have to be so mean. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!

    On-line ..aka keyboard warriors…what is that about? I think it’s people who wouldn’t dare stand up and say anything if it came to it in person. But then why anyway? How about we keep the judgy stuff to ourselves and not spread the comments far and wide. Not good people. AT ALL.

    Sadly I think this is a bad Australian trait in particular. I see lots of this around, along with racism and sexism.

    I think Lauren has it covered there!
    And I cannot believe that Eva copped it from mums in a mumpreneur group….crazy!
    OMG just like ya mumma taught you…if you’ve got nothing nice to say…

    I would have thought that women business group would help each other out and give constructive criticism. It is sad that there are so many people out there ready to tear each other down.

    I have been a follower of Eva’s for a long time, and think she is doing a fantastic job. Some people like to be nasty especially when jealous…

    Some people just suck. There’s no two ways about it. And it’s all well and good to say “ignore them” but that doesn’t make it easier to deal with. It’s so easy to point fingers over the internet and stand in judgement.
    Having said that, I feel pretty lucky to be surrounded by great, strong, successful, kind and sharing women.

    They are everywhere you go – even within families.

    Lauren’s vid was fab. Eva rocks. Chrissy is gold. Wendy is a legend. Soooooo many wankpuffins this week!

    That’s so sad. Some people just say things and they don’t seem to care about the ill effects their words have on others. We need more kindness and understanding.

    I can not believe some of the comments I get when my work is on large platforms, I have been called a bad mother, an alcoholic, people saying they feel bad for my kids and how dare I complain about motherhood.

    I write a political column and just about every week someone with an opposing view slams the shit out of me.

    I have had to work on thickening my skin and I will admit that I still am not very good at it,

    You have to wonder about some people. What’s gone wrong in their lives that they feel the need to be so revolting?

  15. 30/03/2017 / 3:59 pm

    Oh man, this is really starting to get my goat – people who think that they have the right to say anything…almost like the backlash of political correctness overload.
