O is for On the Other Hand

OtOH. . .
A real mom does/does not give birth
A real mom does/does not keep the child safe
A real mom does/does not use the babe as a shield from the world
A real mom does/does not care about recognition
A real mom does/does not escape violence
A real mom does/does not take up arms in the face of an insane and dangerous government
A real mom does/does not do good enough
A real mom does/does not choke on ideas of motherhood
A real mom does/does/does get it from the culture no matter what she does/does not/ do. . .
