Women presumably who don't have a certain sense of humour, or don't agree with certain (long standing) posters being described as beige admin workers who nag their ugly husbands, who were friendless at school, wear cheap clothes, have no fun in their sad little joyless lives etc etc Literally paragraphs and paragraphs of nastiness.

This is some of the most vile and misogynistic stuff I have ever read on MN from other women. These kind of comments normally come from trolls and MRA invasions. Is this really what MN has become? Does everyone think that this sort of shit should stand? What happened to the fucking sisterhood?

I am astounded to be quite honest.

I bluddy luv yhooooo

Yes, thanks for starting the thread, Porto. Genuinely grateful (even though I wasn't one of those who PM'd you to say so.)

Excellent thread all in all Porto. And especially lovely that there were no massive bunfights. wine Cheers everyone and hope you all have a lovely Easter.

I think the thread has shed a lot of light on a lot of people's thinking, which can only be helpful.

ginhag Sat 30-Mar-13 22:02:19

Yes Randall. EVERYONE can learn from that. Trufax.

Or a Hail Maryz
( sorry)

Maryz Sat 30-Mar-13 22:00:03

Fuck off Worra grin

Porto, I do agree with your last post. But I would also send the message (and it's one I have learned the hard way myself) that if you see things that are hurtful to you there is a hide button.

My life has improved immensely since I discovered it.

RandallPinkFloyd Sat 30-Mar-13 21:57:46

I think everyone would do well to take that message away Porto.

Portofino Sat 30-Mar-13 21:52:58

Wel this thread will shortly expire. I never expected that it would run so long. There has been some really interesting discussion. I will go away from with the view that this might be the internet, but please remeber there are real human beings out there reading our wafflings. I think some posters forget that. That what you think is funny might be hurtful and upsetting to someone else.

WorraLiberty Sat 30-Mar-13 21:52:27

Maryz I've never seen you being nasty to anyone ever.

You're an all round good egg and I bet you don't even say shit, fuck or bollocks without making the sign on the cross afterwards grin

I can't wait to see this thread in the Mnhq ' mumsnet talk' email.

It has been like the entire site in microcosm.

Yep - he's fine now, but he's at an age where his peers ask him about his scars and he asks why he has one, but others don't. The good thing is that he can't remember any of it. DH and I are another matter.

I'll have an early night then.
