What do you do that cancels our your NFL/AP/CRUNCHY/NON-Mainstream/MDCness? - Page 13

post #241 of 468


This is sooooo holy-than-thou to think that a mother would make her birth decisions HER BIRTH DECISIONS(!!!!) based on some crunchy-ness checklist?  If you are trying to be offensive for absolutely no reason then you can check that one off your meanie list, Ms.  

 

( I didn't come on this thread tooting my own horn about having a UC, someone else said "Have you seen some of the stuff they post on the UC board?" to me and I thought it was funny because I have had a UC and I said so to them and they responded in a very snarky way "of course you have" and then I asked what they meant by that because I thought it was so childish and it has all spiraled to this.  Friggin geez.)

I am not trying to be snarky (though it's funny how trying to prove how crunchy someone is by ridiculing "mainstream" ideas or practices isn't considered snarky here...hmmm) or mean. Just honest.

There have been quite a few admissions on this thread and people have been very accepting and gentle with each other for the most part.  I am not ok with the attacking of any group of people (UC'ers in this case).  It is not ok to do this in the parenting forum or elsewhere on the board.   If this is a fun thread, let's keep it fun and please edit any personal (or certain group) attacks.

 

Thanks

LOL!  Right?!?! 

So there have been I guess some serious changes to the UA and now threads like this seem to be ok for the time being until someone sorts out what to do about it under the new rules......crazy right?  I think the mods are kinda hands-tied until some clarification comes down from wherever that sort of thing would come down from.  I know they are watching this thread for sure but can't lock it down right now for whatever reason.

Don't forget a lot of people are hardcore crunchy out of necessity! We hardcore FC b/c well frankly we can't waste the $ on TP and we always use CD for the same reason (even on sleepovers).

 

Also if my DD would actually sit in a stroller I would use one.

Because it makes members feel unsafe? 

 

I dunno... obviously, some people don't realize that there were plenty of posters who felt unsafe with the over-moderation and narrow-views.  I mean, you could get jumped on for mentioning you were planning your c-section, never mind that it may very well be medically necessary.  Or that you had to supplement, or your baby slept in a crib down the hall.  You could disagree with someone (w/o name-calling) and fear a warning or alert in your inbox.  But I guess it was all good b/c it made MDC a safe place.

unsafe from what? I thought we were all supposed to NOT CARE what someone says to us online anyway? It's not like anyone has threatened anyone in any way, then I could get the "unsafe"...

Agreed.  Speaking of unsafe... I still don't understand some of the warnings I got on the old MDC.  I started only going to the SN forum for a long time to try to avoid crazy warnings.  CRaaaaaaaazzzzy warnings.  MDC is a lot safer with fewer mod spankings and the ability to say that if you're bleeding profusely and getting faint, you should probably cancel your plans for UC and head to the hospital.

Not sure! But I've seen it mentioned a few times today that MDC was no longer a "safe" place.  shrug.gif 

 

And yeah, I read every post in that thread, but it helped to be reading along as it unfolded vs. trying to make it through 35 pages all in one sitting.

Me too! I always felt so stressed out about the warnings too. I felt like I was back in my room in middle school waiting for my dad to get home to give me a big lecture. And it's not like you could argue the warning...that never went well. 

 

And lol.gif to the second part.

I have to wonder if MDC is so skerry now that we're not being scolded at every turn how anybody makes it through the day in the real world?

I need to stop serial posting, but yeah.  It was getting kinda crazy.   I was afraid I was going to be banned soon.  My favorite spanking was for using the word ghetto to describe -- wait for it -- a ghetto neighborhood.  I meant nothing more than it was a shady area to live.  Lesson learned, though, b/c I actually understand now how it could very well be offensive, and I no longer use it IRL (ok, I'm lying here b/c I've said it to DH, but not to other people).

I just want to say that I think that the huge focus on UC is a result of the history of UC being a place where blatantly unsafe ideas were not allowed to be questioned.  I, for one, have posted about UC in this thread and haven't changed my posts because I don't think they are attacks, though I can see how some other posts might be viewed that way.  I'm not anti-UC at all and in general have an attitude of "to each their own" but I want to be able to say out loud that threads such as "your newborn breathing is a cultural construct" or something like that, isn't safe, without being accused of attacking UC or the poster.  If the UC forum had always been a place where people could say "umm, no, your newborn should be breathing or you should seek medical intervention", there would be a lot of us who wouldn't care to single out UC.  It isn't an attack, at least from me.  I actually care about people who might be foolish enough to think that their newborn doesn't need to be breathing and give them a heads up before they suffer a needless tragedy.
