10 Of TV’s Best Fictional DGAF Moms

By  | 

When some people think of fictional moms, their minds go straight to the Carol Bradys and June Cleavers of the world. Not I. I love the fictional moms who have no fucks to give, because we are all those moms. We shouldn’t strive to become more perfect, we should strive to embrace what a horrible job we’re doing. And you can’t be what you can’t see, right? That’s why I am eternally grateful for this slew of sub-par to mediocre bunch of mothers.

1. Lois Wilkerson, Malcolm In The Middle

The queen of moms who DGAF. Can you imagine Lois pinning stuff on Pinterest? No. Because she doesn’t care. Would you, after raising five boys like hers?

2. Marge Simpson, The Simpsons

Marge will never be cool. But Marge doesn’t need to be cool. Which makes her extremely cool.

3. Cersei Lannister, Game of Thrones

Hey, I didn’t say these were warm and fuzzy moms, only ones who just duncurr, like Cersei. She does what she needs to do to get what she wants. She’s like a tiger mom, only with more incest and day drinking.

4. Linda Belcher, Bob’s Burgers

Linda, for all of her annoying Jerz-accented singing, is such a sweet, loving mom. She encourages her kids to be themselves, no matter how awful their ideas are. I want Linda Belcher for a mom. We all do.

5. Lisa Landry-Sims, Sister, Sister

I really, really, really wanted a mom like Lisa. She actually was cool and cracked cheesy jokes and was nowhere near as paranoid and stifling as Ray, because of course she DGAF.

      Right? One of my favorite bits of Roseanne diaglogue:

      Roseanne: Are they gone yet?

      Dan: Yeah.
      Roseanne: Good. I love ’em and all, but I just ain’t in the mood.

      Who hasn’t felt this way about their kids from time to time?

      I loved Roseanne. It was the first time I saw a family like mine on TV.

      Same. I watch it sometimes and feel incredibly nostalgic. Life was like that.

      Yes, Roseanne was the ultimate dgaf mum and an inspiration to later sitcom writers to realise that mums can be imperfect, or even awful at times, but still be likeable and get their share of lines that combine funny and smart.

    I’mma let you finish, but Lucille Bluth is the high priestess of having no fucks to give. None.

      Lucille’s a bit meaner than the moms on this list though…

      “You want your belt to buckle, not your chair.”
      “It’s an elephant and I didn’t want to invite the comparison.”
      “It’ll distract from the freckles…”

    It seems like we need to have a part 2 to the IDGAF moms list, because there are so many good ones! Which is awesome, because I always feel like most TV moms G too many Fs?

    Lois is my favorite. When I was young naive I thought little boys and girls were the same until I got the first grade with 17 boys and 4 girls.

      I love the episode where she fantasizes about having daughters. It starts out totally idyllic, but of completely runs off the rails by the end, when she realizes that girls are just as bad as boys, but in different ways. It’s hilarious.
