A first-time mother would like her Facebook friends to stop filling her feed with posts indicating she chose to have a child on the eve of America unraveling into a dystopian nightmare.
Sherry Calmes, who had her first child two months ago at the age of 24, said she can no longer log onto her Facebook profile without feeling a sense of regret for choosing to bring another human being into a world that now appears to be on the brink of collapse.
“I wish everybody I know on Facebook would just stop sharing so many posts about protests and politics and all the crazy stuff happening in the world,” Calmes explained. “Can they just post some cute cat videos instead of constantly reminding me the world is going to shit?”

Calmes said she’s made numerous posts imploring her acquaintances on social media to cease sharing so many disturbing — yet extremely insightful — posts about current events, but reported her timeline is still replete with statuses, stories, and videos that spell impending doom for our democratic institutions and, possibly, the rest of the free world.
“I have a little baby in the next room I’m responsible for, and it really upsets me seeing all that stuff,” Calmes stated. “I’ll take anything else. Can we please make nonstop stupid Harambe memes a thing again? I promise I won’t complain this time.”
