There’s been no shortage of headlines in celebrity baby news! From Mayim Bialik‘s views on attachment parenting, to Alicia Silverstone feeding her baby mouth-to-mouth, to January Jones ingesting placenta tablets, we cover it all on Celebrity Baby Scoop!
But when Chicago Sun Times slammed these three celebrity moms on Wednesday, labeling them as “Gross Moms,” Mayim fired back with a thoughtful piece for kveller.
After clarifying that she is not personally acquainted with either Alicia or January, The Big Bang Theory actress went on to defend these high-profile moms and their parenting choices.
“These women are not gross!,” Mayim writes.
She continues: “Everyone has a line which, when crossed, makes them perk up their ears. For you, it may be me breastfeeding my 3-year-old. For someone else, it may be me breastfeeding at all (I know people like this),” she writes. “For you, me holding my newborn over a potty may be the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard of. For me, diapers for 4-year-olds sounds pretty outside of my comfort zone, as does not wanting to be close to your baby as much as possible. The point is, we all have an idea of what we want to do or what we think is “normal.” It benefits no one for us to turn someone’s choices or even eccentricity into a case for ridicule or judgment.”
Let’s reserve judgment for people who beat their children, sell their daughters into prostitution, or deny women the right to make decisions about their bodies and their lives,” the actress adds.
