How many of us actually meet Shona's little sidekicks criteria?
She states that all of us on Mumsnet are in our 30s, living in London and have a degree. How many people here meet that criteria?
How many are popping prozac depressed at the shit life we now have with kids?
Damn that woman is nasty!

Mumsnet is so vast it's silly to label us all in the same way.

MrsBucketxx Thu 11-Apr-13 10:31:06

no degrees no pills either in the woo.

she is mistaken is she thinks we are all vile elitist witches,

the article was full of hate, you put yourself out there as a journo, or sleb. you should expect some criticism.

In my 30s, 2 degrees but I live in Scotland. No Prozac either grin

BeebiesQueen Thu 11-Apr-13 10:31:38

I'm in my 20s live in the south west (so not london) and dont have a degree

ScooseIsLooseOnTheLoopyJuice Thu 11-Apr-13 10:32:08

30s that's about it though, I don't even own any boden!

scarredpierced Thu 11-Apr-13 10:32:13

Shes the silly bitch whos slagging MN off in Daily Mail for telling the truth slagging off her appearancr.

BeebiesQueen Thu 11-Apr-13 10:33:03

oh and I take lots of pills but no anti d's and I dont think my life is shit. my kids have greatly improved my quality of life!

bunnymother Thu 11-Apr-13 10:33:58

I've got it! I think Shona might benefit from a visit to Hull to see Brian...

I LIVED in London (but a bad part of sarf London so probably not what she had in mind...) but don't. I have a PhD, which I was very lucky to have the opportunities for me to get it (or go to university at all).

No pills either.

BeebiesQueen Thu 11-Apr-13 10:37:16

bunny that just actually made me laugh out loud!

Oh, having found and read the article I'd like to amend: I don't like hobnobs. And own one boden long sleeved t-shirt that I found in a charity shop! I don't own an iron either. Nor do I pop prozac.

Should I be cast out from Mumsnet?

& if I was buying the best of everything that money could buy I doubt I'd be living in a house share with all of my possessions fitting into a couple of suitcases hmm

Where is this thread about her that she bases her entire tirade about?

Ineedmorepatience Thu 11-Apr-13 10:37:50

No, degree, dont live in London and dont take pills.

Dont use apostrophes either because I CBA to remember where to put them grin

33 (next week), 80 miles north of London, no pill popping here and happy with my DC smile

KitCat26 Thu 11-Apr-13 10:38:17

Only just 30. Not in London. No degree and no pills.

Oops no degree either.

BeebiesQueen Thu 11-Apr-13 10:39:41

I have 1 boden dress I bought 3 years ago. but I do like hobnobs

Does that mean I can stay? I dont match any of the other criteria!

landofsoapandglory Thu 11-Apr-13 10:41:11

Here's the article (it is the DM unfortunately).

I'm none of the things that she listed.

25, no degree, no London, no pills smile

Not me, I have a degree but am still in my 20s and live Oop Norf.

bonzo77 Thu 11-Apr-13 10:48:00

35. N London. Degree. ADs.

You know what? MN at the moment has its quota of judgemental, opinionated, prejudiced members who are quick to slag off others. Maybe Shona should look around properly, she'd find she'd like it after all.

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Thu 11-Apr-13 10:48:33

I can't stand Boden but I do love Hobnobs.

I did have a cauldron, funnily enough. Very small one. I kept my AD in it. Threw it away while I was decluttering. Keep them in a cupboard now.

almapudden Thu 11-Apr-13 10:50:31

27, live in London, have a degree. No pills though and, perhaps more importantly, no children either!

I've got a degree and I like hobnobs.

It's all her opinion and she's as entitled to voice it as we are entitled to voice ours.

I did particularly like her attention to the way that we have an annoying habit of crossing stuff out! That REALLY winds her up!

Yep in my thirties yep got a degree, nope to living near London nope to to being on Prozac etc.
