I might be in the minority here, but I’m not a huge fan of Mother’s Day. I don’t expect to get a big bouquet of flowers, breakfast served in bed or expensive gifts. Heck, I don’t even want to go anywhere because the last thing I want to do on a Sunday morning is get up, dress up, and eat brunch with a dozen or so other mothers that I really don’t know.
Instead, I usually prefer my Mother’s Day to be low-key. You know, as in sitting in your pajamas until about noon, enjoying the handmade cards my children usually make for me and just relaxing at home as a family. Because at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about right?
Yet, some critics out there believe that Mother’s Day might be the most sexist holiday on the calendar. At least, that’s what this blogger thinks. She says that we make much more of a fuss when it comes to mothers than fathers, grandparents or heck, even our birthdays. And while her views might ruffle some feathers out there, I will say that she does have a point…
Is Mother’s Day sexist?
