Teen mothers have taken to a Facebook page called “I Hate Teen Moms” to fight back against comments they are “sluts” and a “burden on society.”
“I’m not struggling at all because I do my responsibility & I also work hard for it still able to have time for my child more than 8 hours a day. I receive no help at all from anyone,” a woman identifying herself as a 17-year-old teen mother wrote.
The “I Hate Teen Moms” page, which has garnered more than 26,000 “likes,” includes rants and name-calling that the administrator insists are simply “satire and dark humor” that is not violating Facebook’s terms of service or breaking any laws.
The social networking site declined to take down the page because it wanted to protect “expression,” ABC News’ affiliate KOMO-TV in Seattle reported.
“This page is against children having children. That is the main point of this page,” the administrator wrote.
But some say the comments on the page, such as one that says teen moms should be killed with their babies, aren’t doing any good.
“They already have the kid,” 17-year-old Mark Robinson told KOMO. “I don’t think slandering other teenage moms is going to help.”
