“Sanctimommy” Part Two, or, How I Kicked Over a GMO Hornet’s Nest

“Sanctimommy” Part Two, or, How I Kicked Over a GMO Hornet’s Nest

Last week, I wrote a post (later reprinted on the Huffington Post) called “Don’t Call Me a “Sanctimommy:” The Latest Salvo in the Mommy Food Wars,” which was my rebuttal to a piece in Salon, “Stop telling me I’m poisoning my kids”: Food crusaders, sancti-mommies and the rise of entitled eaters.”

The crux of the Salon piece, written by self-proclaimed “science advocate” Jenny Splitter, is that because we live in “one of the safest food systems in the world,” a mother is an “entitled,” “arrogant” “sanctimommy” if she’s at all concerned about feeding her children GMOs, conventionally grown foods or sugar.
