stereotypes

I noticed a question with a picture of a girl and they were asking for the age and name of this girl and also noticed some people were against her piercings.
Now my question is, when you see a parent with piercings/tattoos or both, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Example, if a girl with piercings walks in with a child of any age driving a not so brand new car... what are you first thoughts? I know there a a few mothers who don't think any different of them as opposed to the 30 some year old mom who drives up in a 2010 suv but what is your first reactions? Do you judge? Or com pair?

Just wondering because at times I find myself doing this. But not to the younger moms , mainly to the 40 some year old moms with infants.

  • well, I'm a young (25) mom who is pierced & tattooed... I never really have caught flack on THOSE fronts, just for being young. I'm looking forward to having my youngest out of the house by the time I am 40, and being young enough to ENJOY my grandchildren. I'll be such a GILF! LOL

  • I am a 30 year old mom and I have tattoos. I love my tatts and want many more.
    I do not judge people for what they look like or what they have. We all have only one judge and his name is GOD.

  • well I am a young mom who is 20 years old. Now before I was a mom I would judge the mommy by her cover, but now i try not to do that anymore. Mainly for the reason that I am a young but i am a very good mother imo and tend to my child 24/7. You may have peircings and tattoos but you may be an amazing mother. I have two tattoos myself and one belly button piercing. Good mommys come in all ages and looks.
