Oh boy, one mom has really stepped in it after publishing her piece about favoring her son over her daughter. In hopes that the post will be taken down permanently, I’m not going to name names (after all, if her post lives, that poor girl might be able to find out what her mom really thinks about her), but you can get the gory details on Babble.
This particular mom wrote something that’s not terribly shocking, in that some parents favor one child over another. She also appears to be working through some postpartum depression issues that negatively affected her bonding experience with her older daughter. Neither of these issues are new ones. As a former Babble editor, I can tell you we published many features that highlighted these issues, but none that really took it as far, and did so much damage, as this particular mom has done to her 3-year-old daughter.

My sister came out, she wanted to kill herself.”

Success is truly the best revenge. Rebecca Black
— an unsigned 13-year-old singer who has become a YouTube sensation with a song Rolling Stone called an “unintentional parody of modern pop” — has reached over 16 million views and a top slot on iTunes. Still, the teen says she cried over the harsh feedback online.
In an interview with GMA, she said the negative onslaught initially got to her:
