  • Everyone has their own opinions, and they don't affect you personally, so just ignore the ones that bother you.

  • Why are there so many people who ask these types of questions? It's human nature, get over it already. Sorry but it's true.

  • i dont think every one on here is judgmental, because they have a different opinion than the one you are looking for. Often we want to hear only what is agreeable to us, so when its different it is considered judgmental...we not just here to agree with you, we are here to help you/me/us all see the entire scope of the subject, so that we all can learn from it....especially when it is different/judgmental! after all this is american & we are entitled...if you dont want a full perspective of the subject...then dont ask! you already have your own answer so why would you want someone elses....

  • Because it's a representation of a real life huge gathering of women from all over the world - adn as women it's in our nature to JUDGE, and be judged.

    So get a back-bone and be comfortable with who you are and the choices you made and you won't have to ask silly questions like these again.

  • I like to see the opinions of other moms even when they're strong and different from mine. I get some good advice sometimes, have a good laugh other times. Sometimes I get riled up for moment over something another mom said, but it doesn't really impact my life, so I guess if we're going to keep posting and reading we have to be prepared that others will both agree and disagree with every subject under the sun,

  • Society as a whole is judgemental

    Here; the judgements are just gathered into one place.

  • You'll find that the most judgemental ones fall into a few categories:

    1.) People who feel the need to FORCE their beliefs and ways of thinking on other people by using put-downs
    2.) People who are unhappy with themselves and/or their choice and feel the need to make others feel bad about theirs
    3.) Trolls
    4.) Anon posters who hide behind that anonymity because that's the only way they can be judgemental smarta**ses

    These are just a few. In the end, take the advice you don't like and could do without with a grain of salt. Be comfortable in your own decisions, and utlitize CafeMom as a resource, not the 'be all end all'.
