I've got to say it otherwise I might just burst. I am really really sad to read so many posts on BnB talking in the most undeservedly disrespectful terms about men. If I overheard or read men talking about women in the same way I would be repulsed... and I think most of you would be too. I know we all get frustrated, hurt, and taken for granted... and some times we need to let off steam - But that's not what I'm talking about really. I'm talking about the references to 'take him for every penny' and jumping in on some upset womans request for help with 'men are *******s'. Laying into someone else's OH with all the names under the sun when nobody but the OP knows him, especially when she is often still in love and committed to him. We do not own our partners any more than they own us. I should probably leave it there before I write anything too inflamatory, but it would be really nice if all the flipant man-bashing took a rest.
