I know this article is few years old but why are people always so surprised that, shock horror, mothers have sex?? Do they just expect us to exchange knitting patterns and talk about the contents of nappies?

Additionally there's this Mumsnet Madness[[ ]] Twitter account, which exists to poke fun at us silly mothers. Obviously some threads on here can be ridiculous but why does MN get singled out?

I actually think people are a bit scared of us mumsnetters, that's the feeling I get from Facebook posts I see wink

Well how did Tom Peck think we all became mums? Dense knob!

The Twitter account is just ridiculous.

This Tweet definitely needs a ODFOD but the poor thing appears afraid of the acronyms used here!

Oh we dealt with Mr Peck,at the time. He came on the thread to mansplain at us with his superior man ways.

He complained to Justine that we were mean and to tell us off. She laughed at him. Then he went away.

I seem to remember it was a Robust sort of thread.

Him and his Pit of Stupid.

Damn. Wish I had seen that Honey

Noonesfool Sat 20-Aug-16 21:25:52

But Honey it's ever so great what the menz help by 'splaining stuffs.

My silly head gets all in a tizz otherwise.

Why does every page that is dedicated to mn, feature the penis beaker like its some holy grail?!

HoneyDragon Sat 20-Aug-16 21:28:06

I wouldn't drink out of it even if it did offer eternal glory

Noonesfool Sat 20-Aug-16 21:29:01

eternal morning glory

He lost the moral high ground quite quickly.

I read about the penis beaker on fetlife! It got a lot of bemused attention all over the place.

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Sat 20-Aug-16 21:43:32

Poor Tom Peck, he was completely out of his depth.

MammaTJ Sat 20-Aug-16 21:44:39

It got a lot of bemused attention all over the place.

It got bemused attention on here too!

EverySongbirdSays Sat 20-Aug-16 21:46:50

That article is so weird, so when a woman becomes a mother she should lose all interest in sex?

"A sea of filth?"

Pleas what archaic ideal of rose tinted idea of "female conversation" did he have?

Hand wringing over what to make for mens supper?

Anyone fancy posting a link to the Tom Peck thread? Am not finding it in search...

sleeponeday Sat 20-Aug-16 22:00:23

It was in Chat. Which is a shame, because it should have been moved to Classics. He had his arse so comprehensively handed to him, and it was so very, very deserved. grin

Crunchymum Sat 20-Aug-16 22:06:37

I only signed up as MN was universally reviled on another website. Made me curious..... so I signed up and decided I like it here much more!!

SanityClause Sat 20-Aug-16 22:15:10

It was pretty off, actually, as after penis beaker, loads of journalists started scouring MN for anything a bit rooooood, and there was a TTC quiche called Just Shagging, who had quite funny thread titles, so he decided to use those in his article.

Which was shit, considering the whole thread was about women supporting each other in TTC, using a bit of humour.

The Tom Peck thread was very funny, though. He seemed to assume that all women lose the ability to think once they have given birth (if he thought we ever had it). He really deserved what he got.

SalemSaberhagen Sat 20-Aug-16 22:17:29

TTC quiche? Sounds appetising Sanity!

I wonder what sort of threads would appear on Tom Peck's MN?

My tapestry kit has yarn missing - AIBU to complain to John Lewis?

Style and Beauty - My 7-year-old said 'Darn' today - what pearls are best for clutching?

Health - I am pregnant - how did that happen?

SanityClause Sat 20-Aug-16 22:49:12

Hmm, yes, I guess TTC quiche would be made with egg white mucous.
