AIBU for being a gay guy who has read this forum for ages, loves it, doesn't have a child, and yet still joined

I don't want to impose on Parents space, but a lot of my friends have said...."someone has just said on mumsnet something you said the other day" and "you need tto join mumsnet", "you'll love people who are mumsnet"

I wanted to join. I really like it andd I'm level headed.

Am I encrouching on you?

Hello Kestrel, lovely to meet you grin

SanityClause Sat 27-Apr-13 22:28:47

As you're American, Scone, shouldn't your name be something like BiscuitRhymesWithBrisket? Or have I been misinformed?

HolyFocaccia Sat 27-Apr-13 22:28:53

YANBU. Welcome wine

I dont share wine with just anybody you know wink
i have usually drunk it all

HoveringKestrel Sat 27-Apr-13 22:28:55

sigh I know, I know, the spelling mistakes

I quite like that people who aren't parenty types want to join...
Makes me feel slightly less like a boring mum-type.

Kim, YABU. Just because... grin

HoveringKestrel Sat 27-Apr-13 22:30:50

Just so you all know, I LOVE this website. I think theres a lot to be said for a site which is fundamentally helpful to other people and constructive, I couldn't NOT be a part of it.

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Sat 27-Apr-13 22:32:54

I love none parents! Lets me pretend I'm still a carefree 22 year whose only responsibilities are having money for a taxi home! When in reality I'm a mother of a threenager and I have no social life.

notsoyoniface Sat 27-Apr-13 22:32:55

I have no children. I love this site, and have had wonderful support at times.

Welcome to the vipers nest grin

nenevomito Sat 27-Apr-13 22:35:48

loads of folk on here without kids. I have them and hardly darken the doors of the parenting topic anyway grin

HoveringKestrel Sat 27-Apr-13 22:36:47

Haha thanks Clara, I'm not a twunk, I just wasn't sure about the policy about non parents because that is how this website advertises. I wanted to be apart of it because it is sometimes hilarious and sometimes SO helpful and nice, it should have it's own advert.

BoulevardOfBrokenSleep Sat 27-Apr-13 22:37:59

Nah, post away. I'm under no illusion that having squeezed a small person out of my vagina makes my opinion more interesting than anyone else's.

Good name choice BTW, I'm a big fan of raptors.
Maybe slightly sinister I suppose. HoveringVulture would be worse though...

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Sat 27-Apr-13 22:38:48

Baby Same here! I'd rather talk about non parenting things grin Talking random shit threads are the best

WorraLiberty Sat 27-Apr-13 22:39:40

Welcome Hovering grin

There are lots of non parents here and anyway, how could MNHQ police it if it was against their policy?

I'd be tempted to dump my kids on MN Towers' doorstep grin

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Sat 27-Apr-13 22:40:24

Worra And where have you been?!

SconeRhymesWithGone Sat 27-Apr-13 22:40:25


That will be my next name. smile

I am American but lived in Scotland for a while. Ever since scones became popular in the US several years ago, I have been on a one woman mission to get people in the US to pronounce the word correctly. Sadly, I am failing.

Oh, and welcome to mumsnet, OP. flowers

BollyGood Sat 27-Apr-13 22:43:42

Mumsnet is a bit like a pub but with virtual wine.

HoveringKestrel Sat 27-Apr-13 22:44:01

Nice one Clara, you're right, thanks smile

everyone's fair game.

and the only real rules are
no personal attacks and
aibu is a bunfight, wear armour.


BollyGood Sat 27-Apr-13 22:49:46

kestrel I think mumsnet attracts all different kinds of people. My 21 year old daughter is also gay and doesn't have any children yet, she loves the wit on here and the politics threads.

HoneyDragon Sat 27-Apr-13 22:53:24

It's ok. You are not the only gay childless guy. A friend of mine likes to lurk around the gardening boards grin

Eventually Mnet drags everyone into the vortex.

Welcome wine ..... You know you can never leave now, right?

BollyGood Sat 27-Apr-13 22:56:36

<<locks door and opens wine>>

monkeyfacegrace Sat 27-Apr-13 23:00:30

Are you a really sexy, toned, dark haired gorgeous gay person though?

All the best men are gay. Fuckers.

MardyBra Sat 27-Apr-13 23:00:30

I recommended MN to a male gay friend recently.

In fact, are you my friend...?
