If you’re a mom and have Facebook, you are possibly part of a FB group of mom’s in your community. These group pages are to help connect and support other moms, and they usually are great and do just that! But sometimes they just open up for some women to bash each other!
This week on one mommy group, a woman asked what other moms with sons, thoughts were on circumcision. A heated topic, yes, but she honestly just wanted peoples pros and cons on the matter so she could make a more informed decision for her child. So people commented about what they believe was the right choice for their sons and their experiences with it. What happens? People decide to start posting on other people’s comments arguing their point, trying to prove that the person who commented was wrong in her choice, posting stats and articles to prove their point! What makes me so angry about this, is that the person offering their option, did not ask for other people’s options on their comment thread, or to start a debate. They were simply offering what was asked of them. An Opinion!
a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
Synonyms: belief, judgment, thought(s), (way of) thinking, mind, (point of) view, viewpoint, outlook, attitude, stance, position, perspective, persuasion, standpoint
Why these people didn’t just offer their own opinion on their very own comment thread baffles me! Why they had to try to prove someone else wrong based on their beliefs…. I can’t wrap my head around it! Why they couldn’t think to themselves, “That’s not what I believe, but that’s obviously what she believes…. and that’s okay!” It blows my mind!!!!!!
I see so many people posting about women helping to lift each other up (damn rights, I’m one of them) but don’t post it unless you fucking mean it!!!!!! Don’t bitch at another woman (or man for that matter) for her voicing what she believes to be true! Be fucking kind and move on if you don’t like what they said! Remember “if you don’t have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all”? Take advice from Thumper the fucking rabbit off Bambi!!!!!
Thank you for listening! xo
