Gomeroi. This is MY truth.

Now I’m just flexin

Today I was listening to Koori Radios broadcast from Cairns, It was one of those regular phone in shows, and there were a couple of good calls then came a call from a woman talking about Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD).

She said ‘oh why can’t they just stop drinking, they know they are pregnant, they are breeding monsters, these kids look like monsters, they are just like Dr Moreau, with his monsters’ all this and the host said nothing.

Well lady, here’s some things for you to think about. Back when I used to binge drink I would never get my periods. Not at all. Never. I don’t know why this is or what happened. Maybe the same can be said for a lot alcoholic women? And as for your ignorant question about why don’t they just quit?

Have you ever been addicted to anything lady? Because let me tell you, there is nothing worse than being addicted to something and you have no control over it. It’s the first thing you think of when you wake up, the only thing you think of all day and the last thing you think of before you go to sleep. It controls every aspect of your life in a way that nothing in your life ever will.

Lets get the the facts straight on FASD. It effects  1-2 babies out of every 1000 born. Unless the facial features of the baby show distinct FASD characteristics it can go undiagnosed for years. FASD children are often recognised by small eye openings, a lack of  philtrum (the dent above your lip) as well as very thin upper lips.

FASD kids ae more likely to suffer brain damage, renal problems, skeletal problems and eye difficulties.

They are not fucking monsters and neither ae their mothers.

Fuck you lady.

  1. My FASD nephew has turned into a lovely young man, has found a regular job, and brings pleasure to his family. He struggles but he’s no monster. His mother isn’t either. She’s long had her life under control.
