Even wikipedia, the fountain of all truth and knowledge, acknowledges it:
The phrase soccer mom generally refers to a married middle-class woman who lives in the suburbs and has school age children. She is sometimes portrayed in the media as busy or overburdened and driving a minivan. She is also portrayed as putting the interests of her family, and most importantly her children, ahead of her own. Soccer moms received so much attention during the election that the American Dialect Society voted "soccer mom" Word of the Year for 1996.The phrase has taken on a negative aspect.I hear it on other blogs, too "Omigawrsh, look at this picture of me, I look like a soccer mom." On reality TV (What Not To Wear) - "oh, throw away everything you own. It all screams soccer mom!" In daily conversation - "I need a makeover, I look way too much like a soccer mom."
I really, truly want to know.
Because I'm lovin' it.
