"To my fellow Army wives", let's stop hatin' each other [NSFW-language]

Sick of Army wives who lord their husband’s rank over the heads of subordinates’ wives? Well, so is YouTuber WallisWife.

In a profanity-laced rant posted last week, she calls on Army wives to bond together and exoriates the ones who subscribe to a pecking order based on their husband’s ranks or feel they can make judgements based on appearances.

“Get over the whole rank thing,” she says. “You have to look at the people you’re around as your sisters.”

Instead, she calls on Army wives to look at the common denominators — budgeting households and feeding children — and help one another instead of bashing one another.

Calling herself “proud to be a tattooed, fierce woman,” she says she loves her children, her husband and her wine. (She admits to some being on her second bottle of wine before recording.) The implication is if you’re not okay with that, it’s your problem.

She acknowledges that while Army wives often put their own careers on hold to support their husbands, they have evolved beyond the 50’s “perfect f—-ing Cleaver wife.” Further, Army wives should not impose these antiquated values on each other.

“I don’t care who you’re married to,” she says. “It doesn’t matter if you’re married to the batallion commander or the lowest private in the … Army. I’m going to help you out in any way I see possible.”

  1. I tend to agree with the message that Army Wives should be considered equal- its a sister hood. However I do believe that as a spouse grows in experience, her responsibility to reach out and support grows. Not to be used as a tool to beat or judge others but rather to advise, mentor and nuture others.
