Quote: Originally Posted by boongirl Goody two shoes! Just because I read the rules? Well, that is uncalled for. I ask because I don't understand where all this animosity towards mdc is coming from. The rules are pretty clear and there for a reason. This is a public board. Why bitch and moan about what you cannot change? If you've read the rules you should know that bitching and complaining about them is not allowed and therefore stop bitching and...

Sometimes I even break the rules to post one in a thread that has gone off track. Leftover from the...

I am not opposed to discussion but general complaining about rules doesn't actually get anywhere IME. No one started this thread to complain though. edited edited edited....

My fave feminist magazine is Bitch. HipMama has always been one of my faves because it's feminist issues and parenting issues and how they relate. The Mother looks awesome, I think I'm going to pick up a sub. Also, I get newsletters and magazines from organizations I'm a member of, like the CA Assn. of Midwives, Bay Area Homebirth Collective, stuff like that.

We are not talking about authors who "endorse spanking" -- we are talking about people who advocate repeatedly and deliberately striking babies who...
Quote: I take your complaints seriously, but I take issue with your methods of persuasion. The argument is about spanking and child abuse and yet some of your tactics are equally as violent, and your arguments equally objectifying. Seriously? You think that because some people are complaining and cancelling subscriptions and informing others of the situation that what they are doing is equal to beating a child with a switch? Honestly.
