Attention, fellow Rebecca Eckler haters

Please go over to my friend Sally's blog. I dare not unleash my loathing here on the blog next to pictures of my son.

Americans: you probably have no idea who Ickler is, but if you can stand it, her blog is here. Now I feel dirty. If you go over there, make sure you put a condom on your computer first.

Ickler presents herself as the voice of my generation, and when she got -- the saints preserve us! -- pregnant, everyone in Canada had to hear about it. I have no idea how she got her own column in Canada's Newspaper of Record. Now she writes about how all children need $800 baby buggies. If I could punch her in the face, I would. She makes all young mothers look bad. And I say "young", but Ickler is probably 35. She just acts like she's 22. Wait, make that 12. 22-year-olds have usually figured out that they are not the centre of the universe.

And now I'm going to stop, before I unleash my loathing.

UPDATED: Ugh, and she somehow convinced a publisher to let her write a second book. Please follow this link to read a typical review.

UPDATED AGAIN: Welcome, Technorati users. The full list of my Eckler posts is here.

I think you and I combined can do more damage than a journalism prof.. shall we attack? In true passive-agressive style, natch!

Oh, I saw that and all the hair stood up on my arms. It was classic aggression, the type you see in small woodland animals.

I read her Maclean's article this morning. This cannot go without a mention. I'm just trying to work out what to say. If anyone's weave should be ripped out, it's Ickler's.

I fear this gal may hate Icky more than you or I could ever imagine!

This is amazing. How did you find this?

Everyone, go there right away.

For those who practise abstinence where Eckler is concerned: Eckler attacked a "journalism prof" on her blog recently because he or she had the audacity to criticise Eckler's lousy writing.

You know, like that's totally ridiculous. And like, totally NOT cool. But doesn't Eckler look CUTE? She weighs 98 pounds! Damn that kid who's always getting in the way and always wants meals instead of low-carb shakes! What, the kid wants SHOES now?
