  • Ok, here's my "face"! Now, do you think I am a basher? I know I am strongly opinionated...and you won't hurt my feelings if you say I am - I am just curious. You can reply Anon to my question if you prefer.

  • There's a point when standing up for yourself becomes bashing.

  • no it is the standing up for the people who are being bashed for no reason that is not bashing. that is just being human and heartfelt. unlike alot of these people on here.

  • We each come to cafemom with different life experiences. People should learn from others and embrace the opportunity to share, question, and learn. We should help each other feel empowered to do anything we believe we can. We should state our opinion and be prepared to back it up.
    However, there are others who just want the make that *sting* or create drama. I am learning to ignore them...

  • I don't feel that when someone defends their opinion that they are bashing. I think of bashing when there are personal attacks and assumptions about what other people mean by their posts. It's easy to misread something on the internet, as you can't interpret the tone of the poster. If you aren't getting your hand slapped by the powers that be, then don't worry about what other people think of you, or your opinions.

  • it really gets out of hand when kids are being tossed in like one person posted to another.."your kids could use a better mom i feel sorry for them" or ppl who are on welfare..."you kids wont know the real world since mommy and daddy dont work" common you dont know y or how they got on welfare...so quite assuming things will help.
