Current Events & Hot Topics Current Events & Hot Topics

Things I'm surprised, as women, moms, human) we all don't agree on:

Continuing to poop (human poop) in someone's yard is bad and should be discouraged.

Men will never fully understand a woman's body because they lack the necessary biological equipment to do so.

If you're on the street being followed, you have the right to react several different ways.

17 years old is not mature and definitely not a man.

Impoverished and underprivileged children deserve the same advantages in life as those more financially gifted.

Being President must be an extremely difficult job.

What are YOU surprised we don't agree on?

I'm surprised people don't agree on the readily searchable defintion of commonly used words. Words like fact, proof, guilt, innocence, racism, bigotry, bias, socialism, communism, etc. Insanely easy to check to make sure you're actually saying something that makes sense, yet arguments are constantly happening due to improper use of the English language.

 Then that leads one to argue public education versus home school.........

It's because with kids that age there are so many difference in how people "carseat" their kids... Rear facing, front facing, booster, 5 point harness, with coat without coat...

Everyone thinks ther way is the best and everyone else is wrong LOL

Oh and I don't drink soda :-)


Quoting lizzielouaf:

Obviously but I'm still surprised by, on occasion, the topic of which a group of women disagree on.

For example, all children 3 and under should always be in a car seat when riding in a car. Seems reasonable and a topic every one would hail as gospel but no.

Post a topic on Coke v Pepsi, I expect all hell to break loose.




Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:

It is human nature to disagree...

That unborn babies are not considered life.  (Not debating, simply stating what surprises me.)

Ok but on basic principle, carseats are a good idea. Correct? Not brand, not position, etc, just carseats as a basic safety issue.

 I am still surprised that so many women don't support womens' choices....to work or be a SAHM, to be an equal in their marriages, to raise their children in a legal, committed relationship...all of those things women still argue about and refuse to support other women and their individual choices.

I agree that we don't alway have to agree, but we as adult women should be able to do so respectfully, there is no need to use foul nasty language.  What surprises me even more is when we do agree on topics or situations and some of us are told we are not of that race or nationality so we have no idea how that can feel.  A person can empathize and the history of their backgrounds can be similar, so they have an idea of what it's like.  I am not saying we should always get along, but at least be respectful of one another.
