And how many others do you think are doing it ?

rubyslippers Sun 14-Nov-10 20:53:12

There are dads that post here

What's the big deal?

Dracschick Sun 14-Nov-10 20:53:45

do dads have bums tho?

You are when you have mum and bum in your posting namewink

Don't know & don't much care. I surpass I think of this as a parenting site rather than just mums (despite it's name) <<wishy washy liberal emoticon>>

Dando Sun 14-Nov-10 20:55:04

There may be lots, who knows. I do know that there a quite a few male posters (altho I spose they could be women pretending to be men)

you can post as a dad confused "by parents for parents"

MumWithABum Sun 14-Nov-10 20:55:19

Can't spell! Agghhhh! Surpose!

MissBeehiving Sun 14-Nov-10 20:55:52

Why do you feel that you need to pretend?

Dando Sun 14-Nov-10 20:56:00

No, I think it started like that and they got stuck with it. Like Carphone Warehouse, innit.

There are lots of dads on here. I'd namechange if I were you, unless you want people asking you for advice on mooncups.

Are you joking?

LoopyLoops Sun 14-Nov-10 20:56:43

What is your stance on mooncups, by the way?

MumWithABum Sun 14-Nov-10 20:57:05

am i being unreasonable to not even review my spelling might be a more applicable question mind you ...

Kiwiinkits Sun 14-Nov-10 20:57:11

There are quite a few male posters here MumWithaBum. Happy to have your point of view, welcome smile.

PinkieMinx Sun 14-Nov-10 20:57:46

YABU - why pretend? confused

MumWithABum Sun 14-Nov-10 20:58:51

i like my mooncups filled with baileys

MissBeehiving Sun 14-Nov-10 21:00:32

You can identify yourself how you wish but if you want to pretend to be a woman you might want to brush up on your knowledge. I head over to the feminist section if I were you. Probably followed by a stint on the feeding section then relationships.

I have less of a problem with dads posting than with people who don't have children posting. Not sure why need to pretend.

(that was for wanting baileys in a mooncup. Not for pretending to be a mum, although that's a bit hmm too)
