I have a soft spot for single parents trying to work and raise children.
Quoting coolmommy2x:

Thank you for the compliment!

Yes, anyone in a position to help someone else should. I think people tend to have a soft spot for people like them. For example, DS had a lousy 2nd grade teacher but as a fellow working mom, I cut her some slack because I knew she was having issues balancing everything. If I needed that help, i'd like to think another working mom would offer the same.


Quoting KamWorthy:

I thinks it's great that you were intelligent enough to comprehend that the Hell portion was not literal. Some weren't...lol! But should it be in effect, help anyone in the workplace who's not being treated fairly?




Quoting coolmommy2x:

There are times I agree with her statement...in the helping part, not necessarily the hell part.



I think moms should help other moms. I think women should help each other in the workplace until we are finally seen as equally capable (in general, some women employees suck). Help people when they need it.



I think Taylor Swift chose a poor example to use as Tina Fey didn't say anything bad (IMO). Awhile ago someone here posted a meme of TS vs Miley Cyrus which proved that Miley is in fact, more of an innocent than man eating TS. But I know that's not what this was about.

 I agree with the sentiment, in some cases. However, in this case, Taylor Swift is being a spoiled little brat. She choose this life. It was two comedians making a funny joke. It was not defamatory or tasteless. Taylor, am I going to hell now, too? There is also a special place for women who go around telling other women they are going to hell for a joke. Absurd.

i think swift should wake up and realize that everyone thinks that way about her and maybe she should realize something... like calm the eff down...

The spat is irrelevant. What do you think of the M. Albright quote?

 I think it's too much of a generalization. It's imcomplete without a reference.

 Probably more in the line of watching a woman being assaulted and not calling the police. Hearing your neighbor being beaten every night and not even bothering to try to reach out, even if you know you will be rejected. More extreme cases, I guess. I mean, maybe even some cases of women belittling others to the point of breakdown or worse... Mean girls driving fellow classmates to do bad things.. You know, those kind of cases. Jokes? That are not even mean? Not so much.

Well byrd, I think Ms. Albright is probably referring to women who work to keep other women down, out of positions of power, who don't support women's equality - and I think that perhaps she is right.

Quoting KamWorthy:

Um ok...but what are your thoughts about M. Albrights quote?
Quoting PamR:

Taylor Swift needs to lighten up.  She's made a career writing songs about her breakups.  I think Madeline Albright's quote was probably directed at more significant issues than a Tina Fey joke.
