Unrelated to the whole CF/Parents thing (I fit in neither group btw so I am Switzerland) This could open a whole gateway of subforums up! 

Just think, we could have a forum for rich bees and poor bees! The rich bees could go in and brag to the poor bees about their cavier and fur coats and the poor bees could go to the rich threads and call everyone materialistic pigs.

But I guess that’s sort of what we have going on now.

ETA: I totally just came to lighten the mood cause this whole thing is way too serious and silly for me.

groomsister35 :  I’m fine with this. I get why people feel the urge to retaliate or justify themselves but it is so counter productive and pointless. All it does it completely derail threads. If all CFBC bees ignored those who aren’t on CFBC threads the disruption would be minimal and the usual culprits would likely get bored eventually.

groomsister35 :  they have because they get reactions all the time. Honestly, that is what people want. Don’t give them reactions and trust me it will get boring

groomsister35 :  Right, I do understand that there ARE differences in lifesytles sometimes caused by having kids.  But if you want to talk about your awesome 4 hour love making session and want to start a thread about that, it could just as easily be ‘Had a whole afternoon of awesome sex’… maybe someone with a kid got a baby sitter and wants to talk about her awesome afternoon too.  Why would that be limited to cfbc?  The only reason would be to gush & brag how you can do that anytime as cfbc and to justify the choice.  If you wanna talk about vacations as a cfbc, it could be a thread about Adults only vacation just like Adults only weddings.  The problem is not the lifestyle and choices and perceived limitations caused by it.  It’s that a lot of others can share in cfbc topics, without draggin in mention of kids.  I don’t see the anyone specifiying “19-21 BMI bee only please”, or “size 2 only need respond” in fitness threads.  That’s basically what calling out CFBC only on general *life* topics is doing… it sounds ridiculous.

mrspuppylove :  Just ignore the posts from barbie86 then, she seems to be the only one who is really posting the exclusionary subjects.

I’m not CFBC but I think a group decision to ignore people who derail threads is a great idea. I’d love to see that on a bunch of other threads, especially considering how ridiculous the trolling around here has gotten.

And see, I don’t even get this. I just don’t get the point of trying to “defend” yourself to people who are just having a conversation that doesnt happen to involve them.

Sansa85 :  So I’m usually absolutely on your side, but I disagree on this one. Even if this entire “No Kids” section is CFBC people looking for validation, so what? It’s NOT easy to go against what is expected by society, your family, etc, and for some of these woman this forum may be the ONLY place they get validation for their choice, so so what? 

I mean, 90% of the threads on this board are for validation: that you chose the right dress, or are right in a fight with your partner, or your Bridesmaid or Best Man is actually a bitch….so who cares if they do just want validation for their choice?
