First place: The cultural tendency to use "mom" as shorthand for "lame" or "lacking" (see: "mom haircut", "mommy brain", "soccer mom" and etc.). Most of the moms I know are the same smart, competent, cute, funny, successful people they were before kids, only now they're multi-tasking geniuses, too.
Second place: Loud chewing.
