Were we this bad??? — The Bump
April 2013 Moms

Were we this bad???

God my new birth club Dec14 sucks balls. They are soooooooo bitchy! I remember a bit of drama earlier on here, but seriously these ladies are so ridiculous. Like the "gender/sex" debate?!? God forbid you make that mistake because you will literally be crucified. No, literally. The most unpleasant thing is the the Bump made my default Dec14, even though I like coming to A13 first! I don't usually get bothered by online drama but these women are just plain MEAN.

  • I don't think we were either and you know my feelings on s14 -- similar experience as you explain above. I have stopped posting there completely.

  • I remember this board being much tamer than most of the other BMBs. I think this group is kind of rare.

  • I'm sure we had our moments, but honestly, I don't think things ever got too bad here.

  • I distinctly remember the gender/sex debate here, too. However, this board has always pooped rainbows ;)
    Debate, absolutely - ripping people to shreds over it, I don't remember...

    Jan15 can be pretty nuts, too.  They love the snark a little too much for my taste.  
    (Kind of a lurker over here still, not as active as I used to be.)  Maybe because I'm not spending a ton of time on Jan15, but I didn't think that month group was all that bad.  I do avoid UO Thurs & FFFC most times, though. . . that could be why I have a little different view of the group.  And I do kind of love me a little snark.  ;)
    Myles was so pumped about the baby . . . until he figured out he'd have to share all his toys!!!

  • Not shocked that OP has that opinion on the sex/gender debate. She also uses the R word in every day conversation.

    Wishing I knew what the R word was......

  • Oh wait, "retardedly"??? Are you serious? first of all the word means "characterized by being slow in awareness," like when you are slow to be aware you are announcing your pregnancy on social media. Unless of course you are using the Urban Dictionary definition...

    So why are we being bitchy about it?

    You just opened up a can of worms. It is HIGHLY offensive. Do some research on banning the word and the context behind it.

    Seriously, please do yourself a favor and look for 5 minutes online about this. Even the Supreme Court is trying to remove the word as a diagnosis.
    I was a special needs teacher before becoming a doctor, where I take care of MANY developmentally disabled children and adults. So no, I don't go around calling them Retards. But thanks for playing.

    We? Clearly vocab isn't your strong suit.

  • Yeah, it's over sensitive to say that saying sandy hook was faked is unacceptable. Is anything unacceptable here? Is it cool to just start calling things "gay" too?

  • I honestly believe that it is offensive to use the word retarded as well... and the original post pointing it out was random but polite enough. However, coming over here as some sort of snarky gang that throws around insults and instigating drama on another, unrelated post probably isn't the best or most effective platform for making a positive change.

    Who is throwing insults?

    Okay A13 posters I'm calling it quits on this post. This is not our style. I will be more cautious about the words that may be offensive to others, but no need for A13'ers to post further here. The snarky bully mentality is super not welcome here

    Are you the boss of them too?

    I honestly cannot believe a single one of them defended her on this, especially after her responses about it. That says something.

    I don't think anyone defended the use of that word. It was clearly thoughtless. But I don't think it was malicious. She has never been a malicious person. Would a clear and succinct apology have been a better response? Probably. I took her post about being more careful about word choice as a tacit apology though.
