    January 25th, 2016     by deb singh     Comments

    As cisgender mothers, there is a ton of stuff we just plain feel guilty about. It’s all rooted in good old fashioned sexism - part and parcel with how we are supposed to love our children in opposition to loving ourselves and be self sacrificial at all costs and turns. This is impossible. Like it’s physically impossible to care for someone without support or at the very least some time to care for yourself as well. … READ MORE
