AIBU by always defending Mumsnet......

I love Mumsnet, but I always feel like I have to defend it. When I mentioned that I frequent this site to my two sister in laws they giggled. When I asked what was wrong with Mumnet they said that it was full of awful, man hating, sexless lefties!

I got quite annoyed and told them that that was only the feminism part of the forum.

WIBU by giving them what for?

Riiiight, OP.

How much time have you actually spent on the feminism boards?

Well they are wrong (mostly) smile

I went on the feminism board.

To be fair, I only come here for the awful, man-hating sexless lefties...

I'm not sure I'm any of those things (and I spend most of my time on the feminist board).

What did you say to them?

Yes you are being unreasonable grin - particularly when it takes so damn long to change screens angry

Really?? confused

I describe mumsnet aibu to my other half as somethingawful circa 2001. Probably won't mean anything to you bunch of harridans. It's bloody great.

I'm fairly recent to MN although have lurked via google for years.

My DH2b is intrigued by it and often asks what's happening grin

I burst out laughing on Sunday, it was the thread about the watch gift where the OPs DP was called a joyless fucknugget and that the gift was a lovely keepsake, unlike him.

He asked what I was laughing at so I told him, he burst out laughing too.

Not even subtle is it?

Mind you I'm a leftie who's a bit short of sex just now.

We have lefties and righties, feminists and misogynists on MN. I am a feminist leftie who has quite a lot of sex with a man she does not hate. Can't say if awful or otherwise, that's for others to judge.

What's missing is a board for goadyfuckers.

HelenDenver Tue 17-Jan-17 23:14:35

Bridge toc?

It's clear what the bridge is about, what is toc short for?

Dip me in honey and throw me to the awful, man hating, sexless ... oh it says lefties? I thought it said lesbians. Well never mind, then. Carry on.
