To not like this ghost Of Mumsnetpast that just visited me

A ghost just invited my safe space.

before long, he was mans-ghouling


He came put with some patriarchal lecture (YAWN!) about men and women loving each other.

Stop spoon feeding me, you ghoul!

Even worse than that, he kept asking to explain acronyms. And he was passively-aggressively polite, in a typical sea lion way.

Should I leave my husband? Why shouldn't I, just once, put myself before the kids.

No, no, I am absolutely not a vag-whiner!

I'm so so sick of men telling me to "don't* get your chromosomes in a twist'

I mean, like d'uh. Where do I put my anger?

what would Lily Allen do?

I am so so angry.

To make matters even more patriarchal, he said (AFTER HE"S USED MY TOILET LEAVING A BLDDOY AWFUL SMELL!) that I could expect a visit from two more ghosts.

I'm like, d'uh! Hello? He was like so, goady. I've asked Mumsnet's moderators to ban him, but they said 'he hasn't aid anything offensive"

Help puh-lease?

Fear not the ghost of mumsnetpresent is on her way. She may or may not be a mum and might not be a she but it doesn't matter because she experienced it growing

Ghost or spirit? Spirit as in someone's being hitting the gin? I can make neither head nor tail of that but it sounds frustrating whatever it is!

What the Dickens? Have you been Scrooged or are you already on the Christmas spirits?

I have to say, that Janet crap made me raise eyebrows. I couldn't be arsed to work out whether everyone was just playing along and didn't know wtf Janet was, or whether they knew but enjoyed being obtuse and excluding 95% of the MN population.

If that's "the MN of Times Past" it was tedious and I'm glad it died a death.

I think this was meant to be a sharp satirical piece mocking the tropes we see every week on Mumsnet (patriarchy, LTB, etc).

The OP may have been hoping for lots of laughter here, but has been met with understandable confusion, as it's not great.

Plus it makes no sense.

Are you drunk op?

Ifailed Thu 07-Dec-17 06:35:28

Are you on glue?

Mummyoflittledragon Thu 07-Dec-17 06:51:47

😂😂 it makes perfect sense. I like the Mumsnet present ghost idea.

Miserable made me smile OP

YABU because your ghost of MN past sounds like an MRA and actually when this were all fields, there weren't as many MRAs in these parts.
