    So true. My wife has told me that nothing is unacceptable when it can be justified by a mother protecting her children.

    Parody always comes from uncomfortable truths!! So many women (and some men) act this way about their children, even when the “baby” is a young adult! I sure hope my kids don’t grow up to be this kind of parent, because I certainly am not raising them this way!

    There should be a counter video of mama bears like me, who get mad when other people try to limit my kids or tell them, “you can’t go down the street by yourself, you could get kidnapped” etc. :/

    Next scene: Another woman at another table flips out because the “protect my baby” women are exposing HER child to graphic violence.

    Hahaha. Cute, in a disturbingingly accurate way.

    @ Emily… My thoughts too! Graphic violence, language and sexualization.

    ADULT MALES also need protection.
    I was sitting on a bench in one of Vancouver’s community centres

    NOTE: I mean, Vancouver, Canada-(its population is about four times that of Vancovuer Washington.).

    For no good reason, a young man grabbed the plastic Zip Lock- bag-from me-
    It contained FOUR important pieces of identification
    -including my BC Identiification Card.

    -The staff did NOTHING to restrain the man. They said they did not know who owned it.
    But if they had restrained-and grabbed the Ziplock bag, my name was on all 4 cards.
    Furthermore the staff know me well(I had worked as a volunteer in their computer room-from

    October 2013-to October 2015.

    PROBLEM: Because Vancouver is a very expensive city to live in, there is a high turnover of staff. The comparatively poor pay of recfreation workers- means that people will take a higher paying job-whenever they can.

    Furthermore the staff at the Centre have known me-for fouir years.
    For tow
