Well, SOCCER MOM is just a term used to refer a typically suburban mother who accompanies her children to their soccer games and is considered as part of a significant voting bloc or demographic group. I wouldn´t say it is a term used to ridicule this particular class of people, but I´de say it is a "LABLE" used even  by the people belonging to the same social level. I have never heard its use is derogatory or offensive.

Upper class moms don´t generally have time to spend  taking their children to any of the sports, so that´s why they are not referred to as SOCCER MOMS .
