FML - The follow-up

Today, my mom made fun of me because I'm 16 and have never had a boyfriend, then bragged that at my age she was already pregnant with me. FML

roundtherose Say more :
Thank you everyone for then encouraging words and sympathy for me. I would like to say my mom is one of the greatest people in my life and is very intelligent. She had been dating my dad for 2 years before and they got married and they are still married. She is certainly not a dead-beat mom. I think she was just being spiteful when that happened. She apologized later. She taught me that what she did is not what I want to do in my life. Sure what she said got me down, but outside dating I have a great life!

26, I agree that the quality has gone down, but I love the show Catfish. It's not fake reality TV, it's actually very interesting to see the risks of online dating and what goes on in people's heads. It's not glamorizing it, it basically is informing you and showing the dirty details.

Probably not. The success of a show has a lot to do with the "shock factor". That's why we are so entertained by Honey Boo Boo and the rest of the godawful shows currently on network television. They'd lose their audience if it was mundane content.

You know what does make you a hoe? Making fun of your 16 year old child for never having a boyfriend and then bragging how you we're already knocked up at that her age. I'm sorry but that's a pretty hoe-ish thing to say to your child. Not to mention fucked up and hurtful.

Because at your age a 'loving relationship' just means you have sex with the same guy. Although having sex with someone you're in a 'relationship' with doesn't make you a hoe, bragging about having sex, especially at a young age, does. When your current relationship breaks up and you find someone who wants to be with you just to be with you, the sex gets much better anyway, and that's something you can't rush.

Well, that's totally wrong. We've been together for two years now, and we only started having sex a year into the relationship. We are NOT together just for the sex. We are together because we make each other happy and, whether you believe it or not, we love each other. The fact we're 17 shouldn't automatically cut off all possibility of us being in a loving relationship, because that's exactly what we are in. I'm not "bragging" about having sex at a young age, I'm just stating that it isn't a terrible thing and doesn't make me a bad person. My relationship is brilliant and loving, and I can assure you that he wants to be with me for me. Not all teenage boys are mindless idiots. I found your comment to be very ignorant and judgmental.

Hmm, there was a show called "Bridezilla", wasn't there? And Four Weddings, Say Yes To The Dress, and a whole host of other ones that glorify people who commit matrimony.

usually the entire comment is sarcastic..not half and half. how should the reader distinguish what the commenter is being sarcastic about? by common view we'd think the first line..but not everyone thinks alike.

Back when I was in my early 20's, the Australian government brought out this thing called a "baby bonus", they would give you up to five thousand dollars for having a baby. The year it was brought in, and a few years after that, teenage pregnancy went up dramatically. There were 14 year olds getting pregnant just so they could buy a big TV (unprotected sex, spiking condoms, lying about being on the pill) , or other random shit that they couldn't afford without it. Was a big expose on the news.

My boyfriend went without a relationship until he was 21, and my first college roommate is still single at 23. Both of these people are wonderful, so it's really nothing to worry about, OP
