Why is it so bad to

take the male's side in some of the CM questions/complaints/arguments on here?

if we don't automatically take the mom's side, we're gonna get bashed or thumbs downed....everyone is entitled to their opinion and believe it or not sometimes the guy is actually right and we females aren't always perfect...

We won't even get into being honest...if you don't want an honest answer, then don't put it on the internet for public display for total strangers to comment on.

  • i totally agree. a man's opinion is just as much as value as a woman's opinion on cm. some ppl are just way too oversensitive. as my grandma always said "i don't sugarcoat crap just to make it taste better"

  • Totally agree with you. You figure all we hear is one side of the story, and sometimes (usually) its not all that accurate. If we still agree with the guy's side, then clearly something is really wrong.

  • Have to admit that you are on the money. I know this is a support site for us moms, but we blow it sometimes too.

  • SO true!! I am very picky about what I comment on or reply to. There are some groups better then others, and some I just plain dont go to because you get bashed for having an opinion.

  • I totally agree with you - you are dead on right!

  • I have seen a few odd questions where the poster can't see they are right. maybe the the thumbs down isn't because you agreed with the other person but its because of how harsh your reply was. the poster is angry and leaving an angry reply back just adds fuel to their fire as well as other moms that they have been in their shoes or see if as the poster sees it.
    it all depends on how it is worded as to if i thumb up and answer or down one..

  • I agree....I ask questions because I'm actually wondering what the answer is (or I'm venting lol) If I wanted someone to automatically agree with me i would just talk to myself in the mirror lol
