Seriously, back in '04 I thought this was an accurate cross-section of the United States, at least. I was stunned that Kerry lost the election, because here on MDC he would have won by a landslide. I had to step away for a while and wrap my head around the idea that this large group is still somewhat a minority, that the mainstream is just that--and thus, larger. Is there a grim chuckle smiley? Because that would go there.<br><br>
Just wanted to share that.

No, MDC does not represent the world. Not by a long shot. Only in my fondest dreams. In the liberal hippie bit of it. LOL thought i should clairify, lol.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

gosh, no. MDC is way, way whiter, richer, more feminine, and more Americentric than the rest of the world.<br><br>
It's also much whiter, richer, more feminine, and more liberal and literate than the rest of the country. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yeah, it was probably pretty dumb of me not to see that. I was starry-eyed when I was first here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Nope. There is a hell of a lot more privilege on MDC than in the world as a whole, or even the US as a whole.

no - and if I ever forget my DH reminds me and I work full-time - so there you go! The World confronts me at every turn. It's not like it is here in cyberspace.<br><br>
But it's still a good thread topic.

I wish there were more people around me IRL who was pretty much the typical MDC'er <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

No, I figured it only represented the oddballs out there.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I think it represents the world in some ways. Obviously, MDC'ers are more ap/nfl than the world as a whole, because it's an ap/nfl community, but in other ways, I think it's like the world. There are (almost) all points of view represented here, almost all walks of life. Maybe not in exact proportions, but still, it's diverse.

Ditto to what Eighty said up there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I can see how someone might initially think what the OP is saying though.

Nope. The people I know IRL are a lot less judgmental. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I wish our government embodied more of the ideals of the MDC mission statement. That would be nice.<br><br><br>
