Why do women here answer political questions anon?

I understand why someone might ask an embarrassing question anon, but why hide your face while declaring your politics?

  • I'll have to agree that, for the most part, anons are cowards. I have only gotten one nasty pm and she completely misunderstood what I had said. The bulk of anons just troll around trying to start something. I've seen a couple, or maybe it's the same one, who have intelligent comments but they are the minority.

  • Why with as outspoken as I am, I have only ever had one chatterbox message left?

  • Didn;t you know there are a whole bunch of nameless, faceless "stalkers" on here who send "nastygrams" to the people who have differing opinions?! (sarcasm).

    I think in the 2 years I've been on CM, I received MAYBE 2 "nasty grams." I reported them, and POOF! no more nastygrams! LOL :o)

    Seriously, most of them do it just to be obnoxious and save face, which is funny considering we're all pretty much anonymous--only my friends can see my profile and children's images--I don't knw what the big deal is?!

  • I used to in avoidance of the ugly chatter remarks, but just learned to use the block function and that problem went away. No hiding for me...

  • I post some pretty controversial stuff and NO has ever filled my chatter box with hateful remarks. Plus, if they do, You can block them...


    I think anons are cowards. They make every attempt to create drama and rarely answer a question with facts...

  • Ohh I have received a few nasty private messages... And then I either 'talk' it out with them one on one, or I block them.. It's so much better to stand up for what you believe in... Being a coward is such a pathetic trait.

  • Because politics are, believe it or not, a very touchy subject.


    EXAMPLE: I dont like president Obama.


    it could be taken as "oh well shes racist"


    EXAMPLE: I dont like Sarah Paylin. (not sure how to spell it sry)


     it could be taken as, I dont support single hard working moms.


    Everyone's opinion could get taken wrong and nobody wants to get into fights and arguments about their opinions. Its scary stuff!
