When I began this blog I was not good at avoiding online drama. And I like to think I've gotten better at that. I think I've gotten better at scrolling along past people I disagree with. I've gotten better at clicking away when someone is wrong on the internet.
But one in a while the temptation is too strong... once in a while I'm in a popular Catholic Mom's group (CMBC for those in the know) and I read a post by an admin first making fun of a program teaching kids struggling to read to read, and then saying that moms of kids with disabilities were really one of the biggest problems in mom groups because they put their sensitivity above the needs of others to "laugh or find things ridiculous" (the full quote is in the vlog, word for horrid word).
And you guys I couldn't keep scrolling. There were a lot of special needs moms in the conversation. I had to say something.
I said that I thought that the biggest problem in moms group was a lack of compassion.
And well, the rest of the story is in the vlog.
