All I Want for Mother’s Day Is Equality for My Child

All I Want for Mother’s Day Is Equality for My Child

Karen Dolan

What mother on earth doesn’t want equality and health for her child? I certainly do.

I gave birth nearly two decades ago to a healthy, beautiful, intelligent child, who cried more than I thought she would and whose tutu-wearing terrible twos persisted into her tiara-wearing terrible threes. This willful nature turned out to be both her most challenging and her finest quality.

Trump wants to stone to death anyone who isn’t a white, angry, male, pos.

Call it what you like, your actions as parent to this person constitute child-abuse. Your total ignorance as to the real purpose of life has resulted in a series of unfortunate choices representing an incalculable opportunity cost. Your child could have achieved true freedom and equality but instead is now more bound to sustained suffering than ever. Your shame is complete. You have utterly failed your child as a parent.
