Mom Vlogs About Judgement, Gets Judged

Vlogging about judgement

Nostril_Curl knows that when it comes to being a woman, you're damned if you do, damned if you don't. 

In a recent post called "The Ugly Judgement of Society," the vlogger describes all the double standards that face women from the moment they become moms: 

Girl is a stay-at-home - she probably doesn't do anything all day but watch TV.
Girl gets job - how can she stand to be away from her baby all day like that.

Girl lets kids play without her - she is an unfit mother, where is she?
Girl is overprotective of her kids - poor kids, no childhood.

Parenthood, Nostril nails it.

But here's the thing. The vlogger delivers her sermon from the comfort of her own bubble bath, and someone notices and comments.They're not quite passing judgment though wait, maybe they are. 

That's when Nostril's vlog goes kinda meta because suddenly her video about societal judgement is itself being judged:

"See ur judging me by me taking a bubble bath. This video is about judging and now see who is judging me, you! As if ur saying I'm taking a bubble bath and show the world because I want attention! But really I was taking a break from my kids and enjoy my bubble bath from a long day!!!! And at least I'm COVERED!"

Did I notice she was in a bath with bubbles stuck to the back of her head? Why, yes, I did. For a split second, then I forgot about it. Because frankly those bubbles were beside the point. 
(And even though it's not all that convenient, don't we all get struck down by passing, earth-shattering wisdom while we are in the bath or shower?)
In Nostril's own words: no matter what you do, people are gonna talk shit. So do what's best for you. That applies to parenting and well, pretty much everything else, too.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to run a bath...
