I know I've been away for a bit, but where did this come from in my absence??

tbh, I do find it a bit distasteful to have it there.

not wishing to be controversial at all. But v. curious.

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 11:19:23

or 'force's' even........

TrinityRhino Fri 22-Jun-07 11:21:22

why distasteful?

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 11:24:17

prob. depends on your view of the British Army/Navy/Air Force and what they do. I guess.

I am assuming this 'facility' is restricted to the Brits??

and, have assumed this sort of discussion had already been gone through whilst I was away......

IdrisTheDragon Fri 22-Jun-07 11:26:07

I can't understand why it would be distasteful.

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 11:37:14

oooh, nothing..<< as idly whips table top with finger tip..>>

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 11:37:49

or "wipes"...WTF is going on today??!!

Why distasteful?

The new section was requested by some MNers (wives and partners of men in the Forces) so that they had somewhere to chat with other women in the same position, and to post those questions and problems which don't affect most other posters. Army housing, facing long stretches away from partner, worries about postings, that kind of thing.

Why would you find that distasteful?

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 11:52:15

oooh just in view of their "tasks" around the world.....

and is it restricted to Brits?? just curious...

nickytwotimes Fri 22-Jun-07 11:53:01

doesn't seem distasteful to me. it doesn't exclude "sweethearts" from anywhere.

nickytwotimes Fri 22-Jun-07 11:54:35

i agree, i don't like what the forces have done in iraq, but from people i know, neither do they! also, forces do things, eg peacekeeping that are good?

WigWamBam Fri 22-Jun-07 12:00:04

It's not about the members of the Forces, where ever they happen to be or whatever ^tasks" they are being expected to carry out.

It's about their partners, who might just need a little support from people in the same situation.

And why would it be restricted to the Brits? Mumsnet isn't ...

saltire Fri 22-Jun-07 12:00:24

Just because you don't agree with their taks around the world, doesn't mean Forces wives/partners shouldn't be allowed a topic all of their own

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 12:08:09

not said anything about my views or otherwise on world events, least of all Iraq.

nickytwotimes Fri 22-Jun-07 12:08:50

don't be pedantic, pan, the implication was there!

TootyFrooty Fri 22-Jun-07 12:10:06

Looking for an argument are you Pan?

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 12:19:09

no no no!! One doesn't have to go looking for arguments round here!!

just well,'s the being paid to kill children, and mothers and fathers. Not very Mumsnet it is?? And being subsidised whilst doing it. just curious.

Basic premise. "Killing children, mothers,and fathers is not very Mumsnetty."

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 12:21:30

or even "is it"!! What IS going on today!!

allieBongo Fri 22-Jun-07 12:23:27

i do believe today pan, you are spouting drivel, That is what seems to be occuring

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 12:25:26

Hmm..could be Allie!!

Still what remains is "Killing children, mothers and fathers is not very Mumsnetty" riposte yet????

colditz Fri 22-Jun-07 12:27:12

Well, bum sex probably isn't very mumsnetty either, but it doesn't mean we don't talk about it.

allieBongo Fri 22-Jun-07 12:27:13

it's not very anything, but one of the hideous things that occurs all over the world. (as you said, not just british forces)

allieBongo Fri 22-Jun-07 12:27:41

now, the crocs debate, that is mumsnetty

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 12:30:42

bum sex IS VERY mumsnetty!!!!

but you see my point and why I do see it as distasteful? To have it at the top of the board so one can't miss it.

anal sex ans slaughtering innocents isn't in the Up with bumsex, down with killing families, I say!!
