I'm a laid back person, loving mom, devoted wife, good neighbor, etc. I don't like drama in real life-but for some reason, I find myself drawn to the extreme drama on the Cafemom group. Negativity, rudeness, racism, bashing and other BullShittery runs rampant there. I've found myself saying "I'm just going to check it out for a few minutes" to only find myself still at my keyboard an hour or more later. I had to step back and ask myself "Why"? To witness grown women go at it like middle schoolers day after day is mind numbing. I'm sure negativity will find it's way to this question-Why can't women on that group answer each others posts without resorting to name calling or bashing each other? Women can disagree in a spirited manner without being bitches. I've shortened the amount of time I spend there-I'll eventually stop-but it's sad to see obviously intelligent women go at each other like cats and dogs, really it is :(

When I first came to Cafemom a year ago, it was simply to play Latte Land. One day, I ventured off into the group department... holy crap... it was like a bunch of PTA mom's at a MaryKay meeting gone awry in a sorority house... I was almost appalled that these women were of the same species as me...
Sometimes this whole place is like PMS on global steroids... but hey, you put a few thousand women together in the same place behind keyboards... tada... this is what you get. I have learned to avoid certain groups, take everything with a grain of salt and keep my mouth shut when need be.... left eye twitching...
On a side note... I have met the most wonderful people on here that I am happy to call my friends...
