happy4eva Thu 04-Aug-11 22:24:50

its not parents net :>

I was just wondering i thought there might of been one.

K999 Thu 04-Aug-11 22:28:43

I'm sure there used to be a dadsnet confused

Well I suppose 'Dadsnet' is a kind of add on, but it doesn't get that much traffic. Though if you posted an introduction post there you will probably attract the attention of some of the other male posters.

TBH there are all sorts on MN, just dive into any of the boards it doesn't matter if you are male, female, 'other', a parent, a teen etc. etc. Everyone has a point of view, as long as you stick to the posting guidelines you are welcome in any discussion. A lot more gets talked about than just being a Mum/Dad/Parent!

There is a dadsnet.

This is just a sub forum.

Maybe this sub forum needs it's own section like other discussion groups.
It's so hard to find on the main menu you'd have thought that mumsnet wanted to bury it on purpose smile

There are a number of websites aimed particularly at fathers. Google is your friend here. Last time I looked none of them were noticeably busy or interesting. I prefer mumsnet.

Honeydragon Thu 05-Jan-12 07:30:47

It's not buried, occasionally some male posters introduce themselves in here, but mostly they lurk and then dive in somewhere safe like chat.

What are you looking for op? There are a lot of male posters on mnet already.

neshnosher Thu 05-Jan-12 07:34:03

You don't think this sub forum is buried?

Honeydragon Thu 05-Jan-12 07:41:57

Not really, possibly swamped. It's always been in the same place. Just Mnet has got bigger and the majority of traffic is in chat and Aibu - users argue a lot of of topics are buried because you have to look for them. This is why so many threads start up about Aibu being abused and asking the topics list to be culled and condensed.

After all mnet don't expect fathers to only post in the dadsnet topic grin

neshnosher Thu 05-Jan-12 07:46:01

I don't think that posters should be just posting in the section named for them that would be silly.
But nevertheless fathers discussions do get derailed on the main forums i'm sure you'd agree.
You're points are valid Honeydragon but I would still like this section to be a little more visible.

Just join in with the normal threads. I don't want a separate forum for dads, I want us to contribute with all parents. No need for us to stand in the corner, looking uncomfortable and nursing one beer all night. grin

@rushofbloodtothefeet What patronising tosh "Cos Dads can be Mums too"...where's the bucket? What precisely is that supposed to mean, if dads do as much or more than mums in caring for their children, they are being mums? They are being dads (they're those loving parents whose rights are ignored in the so-called family courts btw), who are every bit as capable and important to their children as any mum, it's just that feminists and the courts have decided not to recognise the fact. Sorry, did I hear someone say something about equality?

willing Sun 03-Feb-13 15:26:54

@Technoviking Interesting sentiment, but it only works when all else is equal, and in case you hadn't noticed, it's not!

ATruthUniversallyAcknowledged Sun 03-Feb-13 15:30:03

Just join in the rest of mumsnet. There are several dads here. Most of the female posters like their input.

Daddelion Mon 04-Feb-13 16:50:33

A 23 post thread spanning 2 1/2 years.

Only on Dadsnet, the land that time forgot.
