One mother has explained her struggles of being a single parent over a TikTok series featuring three videos that show the most insulting comments and questions she gets asked, and it’s fair to say the internet is divided!
Sharing the Struggles
A single mother, Bee, has taken to TikTok to shed light on the hurtful and derogatory comments she regularly faces.
Her Bittersweet New Life
TikTok user Bee, @pocket_sizedhuman, who recently celebrated the arrival of her daughter August in March, has courageously shared a series of videos showing her struggles.
Bee aims to raise awareness and understanding among her followers of the insulting comments and questions she’s asked about being a single mother.
Shocking Judgement From Others
Bee fearlessly shares the highs and lows of her motherhood journey, “We didn’t invite you as thought you’d be uncomfortable being the only one with a baby.”
The Fear of Missing Out
Comments like this mean that Bee regularly misses out on fun activities with family and friends.
Not the Same?
Another remark that Bee finds particularly frustrating is, “I’m basically a single mom when my husband goes to work.”
Bee claims it’s annoying when non-single parents claim to understand her lone struggles.
Never Judge a Book by Its Cover
The last comment shared is, “You don’t look like a single mother.”
Bee expresses her confusion.
“What are we supposed to look like? Is there a specific look?” She ponders in the text.
Shared Experiences From Mothers
“It’s lone parenting… my husband was military, so I parented alone, but I wasn’t single. I had his wage and his emotional support… VERY DIFFERENT!!” One user exclaims, showing a possible flaw in Bee’s argument.
Missing the Point?
Another commenter decided to miss the point entirely by saying, “Tbh seeing my husband one day a week I pretty much feel a single mum as I do it alone alone with 3 boys.”
Empathy in the Comments
Some mothers in the comments felt her pain, “This one grinds my gears so bad. I’m a single mum to 4yo twin girls who are absolutely wild and like to use the fact there’s 2 to their advantage lol.”
