Dear People Who Write Me Hate Mail,
Thanks for entertaining me. I will never respond privately, but I appreciate you guys.
So, here is a special post dedicated to you:
To the breastfeeding haters-
I have no idea why you’re writing me telling me you’re happy with your bottle feeding choice. That is great. I’m happy for you. I don’t want people to judge me for breastfeeding and I don’t want people to judge you. We’re on the same team.
To the people that claim to be anti-adoption-
Thank you for spending your time writing to someone who already adopted, giving them absolutely no useful advice, but just to vent and tell them how much you hate adoption. I hope it is therapeutic for you. (P.S. my online psychiatry fee is per word)
To the people who have their children in public school-
I would really like to know what I’ve said that gave you the impression that conventional school is wrong. No, I do not think you are an “evil neglectful mother” as you’ve mentioned. Most of my friends’ kids are in a conventional schooling system, and that is exactly what is right for their family. We are doing what is right for ours. So please, just stop.
Stop at least until my kids are 45, unmarried, and living as Klingons. Then you can say, “I told you so.” Until then, zip it.
To all the racist people that write to me-
I have a particular finger I’d like to show you….
