I remember CafeMom 5+ years ago...
There are women on here who are different, not everyone made the same choices in life and not everyone got dealt a fortunate hand. It bothers me to see those who enjoy good fortune and success bash those who do not. That's not the point of this site.
If you love this site like I do and want to return it to its roots of a site full of support, when someone mentions being on PA, don't bash them; you've not walked in their shoes. You have no idea what her life is like. She well may be a moocher, but it's more likely she's in need of the help and your just kicking someone when they're down.
If someone mentions their tax refund, don't bash them for getting CTC or EIC. They well may be limiting their income or otherwise cheating the system to get the max EIC but its more likely you're bashing someone who makes so little throughout the year that they scrape every penny to keep the lights on and they can finally get things they could not otherwise dream of affording.
Do unto others as you would have them do to you. If you see a bully this year, defend the OP. It should be a conversation not a dogpile on OP.
If you are a basher, stop and think if that's how you would treat someone IRL; if you wouldn't do it IRL, don't do it here.
Ok PSA over. Bump if you agree.
