But the advice seems a bit condadictory.

If you're a man or a woman.

well we don't all agree with each other

TheCowThatLaughs Sun 21-Dec-14 18:50:20

Can you link to any examples of this please?

If we all agreed with each other, it would not be a meaningful discussion board.

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sun 21-Dec-14 19:16:45

That's nice, dear

I think you're naturally going to get women generally being sympathetic towards other women and being suspicious of men. It of course happens the other way also.

I think you just have to accept it here. It's not the environment to seek tea and sympathy if you have a penis.

Fairenuff Sun 21-Dec-14 23:34:03

I think the advice is straightforward regardless of sex.

Yes well...we're not a political movement are we?
We're a bunch of women talking to a bunch of women.
What do you want from us?

YonicSleighdriver Sun 21-Dec-14 23:38:08

I'm so happy you like us. That's made my weekend. Would you like a sandwich?

I tend to agree, given many of the responses here so far. Not a popular point of view by any means, but it feels fairly clear to me.

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Dec-14 23:39:36

I like MN too <feels the love>

It's all part of the rich tapestry of life, different opinions, innit?

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Dec-14 23:41:07

It's not the environment to seek tea and sympathy if you have a penis.

Actually, I disagree with that statement.

Advice is forthright, whether given or offered by/for people with/without penises.

Fairenuff Sun 21-Dec-14 23:43:20

The thing is, no-one knows if a poster is male or female anyway. So how can advice be contradictory?

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sun 21-Dec-14 23:44:47

I am a male and so is my wife

Contrary to the media spin of "Mumsnet thinks..." we aren't a hive mind.

My real name is Dave the Trucker <cracks hairy knuckles>

But it's ok because I is gay.

Oi Gay Dave the Trucker, I think I bumped into you on another thread! You weren't that fella giving contradictory advice were you?

readyforno2 Sun 21-Dec-14 23:48:41

grin Yonic

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Dec-14 23:49:26

Yes, that wasn't me <contradictory>

BaffledSomeMore Sun 21-Dec-14 23:51:09

Fairenuff Sun 21-Dec-14 23:51:48

And who are you really WishiwasHenry? Harriet perchance?

BIWI Sun 21-Dec-14 23:52:29
