why so much criticism and hate?

ive seen alot of polls and questions with rude comments on them. i dont understand why we cant all be civil towards one another. we are all here for the same reason, so why cant we be here just for that? our children, we are moms, know the same hardship and joys and fears. ive seen teens get bashed for their ages, ive seen older moms getting bashed for theirs. is there prime age for pregnancy that im missing? i would just like to ask, why cant we all just get along, or express our opinions in a polite and civil manner? why cant we just be grown ups and accept what happens (teens gettin preg, older moms, vaccine issues, smoking drinking etc etc) and just move on?

  • Because most people just want attention. And some women like to be immature and rude. Just the way they are. Ignore everyone who acts that way let them be that way =] that's what I do!

  • some women can't handle opinions from other women.

  • because it makes people feel better about themselves. It makes people feel all high & mighty when they chop off others heads.

    People chop off other's heads so that they can appear taller (love that quote)That is why. Its an ego boosts to feel like your right about everything. They put other people down so that they can feel better themselves. It really comes from severe insecurity. People who are VERY secure in themselves & happy don't knock others down because they don't need to.

  • I feel the same way, i am quite new to CafeMom and I see postings from women just asking for advice and the women answering completely bash on wonder they post anonymous...what's the point of asking for advice if you're just going to get criticized? We are all women with same problems, we should learn from each other not try to make ourselves be better than those making mistakes...makes me not want to ask questions.

  • people are like that because the truth hurts and that makes people try to defend themselves and it makes people try to justify themselvs i cant say that i have always been civil with everyone because i would be lying and i didnt do it to make others feel bad and myself feel good i do it out of anger frustration and hurt and i do it because like a lot of people i dont like to face the truth and i dont always know how to express myself
