    Default Upset with the human race....

    Ok so wow.

    Sometimes something happens and you realize that the human race can disappoint you in all areas of life. Even on a 'friendly' forum.

    When I come on here I expect the same respect as I give everyone else.
    But that's not the case. I'm often given supportive advice and with politeness. But not today.

    I get that hiding behind a computer screen makes it easier to be a nasty rude person, but why would you want to be that way regardless?

    I've seen people post these kind of topics on here before and now I have experienced it first hand I feel really sorry for the people who are Internet 'bullies'. Your words can hurt people and it's a shame.

    Yep. There's no such thing as a sisterhood. A lot of ladies on here call it "debating" but that's a load of bullsh1t. Debating is just another word for arguing and fighting.
    I wonder how many women on here would freely give their "opinion" IRL.

    You know what, screw em. Women like that get off on being nasty. They feel a rush by sharing their opinion and being nasty. Don't be upset by it. You should feel sorry for them because they have nothing better to do.
    Keep your head up high and sc*** em! ; )

    I'm sorry, but do you not see how your thread was offensive and somewhat distressing?

    What response did you expect people to give you when you asked about that name and when they realised the condition of the same name?

    I hear ya but trust me if its not your child's name it will just be something else parenting related! It's like trying to put a round peg in a square hole.

    I disagree. I don't think anyone was bullying. Just begging you NOT to call your child after a fatal birth defect. And then you got irate because barely anyone agreed it was cute. I'm sorry you felt picked on, but it was purely the majority (that YOU asked for) saying what they thought on a very cruel name. But you insist you like it, so what's the prob?

    I've just read through the thread and can see why it got so heated.

    I'm sorry that you feel like you were bullied, but can understand why other members said what they did.
