I think we're due a name change. Just looked at Relationships and 3 out of the 4 top threads are by men.

acasualobserver Tue 08-Mar-16 08:54:55

What name would you suggest?

VulcanWoman Tue 08-Mar-16 08:56:28

Is there a parentnet.

elQuintoConyo Tue 08-Mar-16 08:56:48

'By parents for parents' seems to be sufficient.

Heaven forbid men would like relationship advice off women. Are men allowed to comment on threads started by women?

Can't we all be friends? brew

I don't think we're due a name change, but I do think of this place as more of a 'womensnet' (which doesn't necessarily exclude men.)

I would think a site could mumsnet is the perfect place for men to post to get s different perspective than their own.

Lots of non parents post here. No need for a name change. Everyone would call it mumsnet anyway (I actually called starburst opal fruits yesterday).

Are you unhappy about men posting? The vast majority of posters are (or appear to be) women.

Chocolatteaddict1 Tue 08-Mar-16 09:05:15

No it doesn't need to change. Yep more men are posting (which I'm a bit dubious about tbh) but that doesn't mean MN has to fall over themselves adjusting it appropriately so the menz don't feel sad. sad

I've not seen one man asking it to be changed. We were here first and all that ....

This again. Yes there are men and non parents on mumsnet.

There's lots of non parenting non gender/sex related topics on here.

Sorry it just seems to be a topic that comes up on here a lot. Either whys it called mumsnet when there are men, or some sort or outrage that men and non parents would have the audacity to post!

PerspicaciaTick Tue 08-Mar-16 09:12:46

I think TheNet should suffice.

Chocolatteaddict1 Tue 08-Mar-16 09:14:57

Why tick?

bumbleymummy Tue 08-Mar-16 09:16:03

Opal Fruits is a much better name than Starburst.

Chocolatteaddict1 Tue 08-Mar-16 09:18:58

And why did marathons have to change to snickers ? confused

whatdoIget Tue 08-Mar-16 09:19:05

I don't think we want to encourage them, do we?

PotOfYoghurt Tue 08-Mar-16 09:21:54

This again?

PurpleDaisies Tue 08-Mar-16 09:23:22

Jif changing to cif makes me irrationally angry.

Drew64 Tue 08-Mar-16 09:24:17

Jif to Cif

It's wrong!

Sorry, I will get my coat, I'm a man

There appears to be less male traffic on AIBU, more would be better.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

PurpleDaisies Tue 08-Mar-16 09:26:00

What do you mean mithy? Why would more men on AIBU be better?

PurpleDaisies Tue 08-Mar-16 09:26:33

You win usual after last night's invasion.

VocationalGoat Tue 08-Mar-16 09:26:45

I still call it Jif.

bumbleymummy Tue 08-Mar-16 09:29:36

I actually like Snickers better than Marathon blush

I think usual is right! So many in the last few weeks!
