Yummy mummy

It means MILF! Call a spade a spade, ladies. I don't know why this does my head in so much, but it really does!

Maybe it's for this reason: there's something contradictory about wanting to be fuckable, yet feeling the need to disguise it with hideous, twee euphemisms. It's a turn-off..I'm going to get a lynching for this, aren't I? "Why do you resent women for wanting to keep their figure after giving birth?" and all that. I'll be disappointed if I don't get a bollocking from someone for this, to be honest!

Bye bye.

  1. Hi Rob!
    Well, sorry to disappoint, I’m not gonna give you a bollocking but I’m not sure I agree about the two phrases meaning quite the same thing. Both phrases conjured up by you guys out there btw so don’t blame us women for them. haha
    From a female point of view I think if someone called me a yummy mummy I’d probably be quite flattered, think Demi Moore, Catherine Zeta Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow, Myleene Klass etc A yummy mummy to me is nothing to do with wanting to be fuckable...not in my eyes anyway. It’s about women taking care of themselves, making an effort and having pride in their appearance to promote self esteem and confidence whilst being a mum obviously. Saying that tho, it’s not a name I like, to me it implies that the general consensus is once you have a baby you are gonna give up on having a life and walk around looking like some Jeremy Kyle reject and any mother who does actually make an effort is a novelty worthy of its own term. And, although I personally make an effort for nothing or no-one else but myself, look at it this way, if your partner was to have a baby would you be happy if she just let herself go afterwards?
    A MILF on the other hand is a more base phrase. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be totally honest here and say I wouldn’t be too upset if someone referred to me as one as a joke...maybe because I work with a whole load of guys aged between 25 and 35 and I’ve long got over being embarrassed or offended by anything they say, it goes right over my head so I’m probably immune to anything like that now anyway. Haha It is unflattering, even disparaging in a way and I think it would depend on who said it and in what tone and circumstances as to how I took it. It does conjure up images of the cringe-worthy video for the Fountains of Waynes song Staceys Mom. Ha At the end of the day I’d much rather be considered a yummy mummy, for what it’s worth, than a MILF.
    So, to quote you resent women for wanting to keep their figure after giving birth? I assume you take an care in your appearance? No one should be knocked for taking a pride in themselves whether they be male or female, young or old, married or single, mum or not.
    Right, that’s my waffle, probably makes no sense at all to anyone else bar me! Haha Oooo, I just love a good debate. :D
    Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend, mega love*HUG*, Christy xxx
