Re: single parents/non-traditional families forum

it's where i hide when it comes to family matters. although in offtopic int he latest non-manogamous mamas thread. not that comfy letting the whole world know about my relationship, and fearing the people who think it is wrong, and want to talk downa dn tell me "i deserve better.. and one man one woman" kinda thing. please please please make a non-traditional forum so i can stop hiding and feeling separate and alone from the "normal types of families"

Re: single parents/non-traditional families forum

Just adding my support, hoping to be counted! Thanks!

ETA: I've felt similarly that anything other than mainstream is moved to sensitive subjects, I don't think that's the right place; its not sensitive, its life!

Re: single parents/non-traditional families forum

I think they just think anything that mentions sex or sexual relationships is moved to prevent the general population from being offended..

Re: single parents/non-traditional families forum

I just joined DS after reading about it on a neighboors website, so I dont really have any idea what I'm doing on the site....but I too am a single mother (have been for 6 years) and I would LOVE to have a place to talk to other single Moms.

It sucks feeling like you have to hide so you don't offend anyone.

Exactly! Mothering dot com has a forum for blended/step families and it runs smoothly if that is the concern of the powers that be.
How can we find a list of admins to pm? I'm on my phone and can't find it.

Re: single parents/non-traditional families forum

i wish mothering weren't so dead because I would go there for an alternative families forum. but it's dying a very very slow painful death and has been for a few years.

Re: single parents/non-traditional families forum

I'll pop in to voice my support again. I may be in a relationship now...wasn't when this thread was started..but regardless I still see myself as a single parent. Lesbian on top of that and yeah..I am pretty much stuck with posting in SS if I need any support. My gf helps with my daughter of course but still she my daughter (born before my gf came into my life) so I do not expect her to assume full parental responsibilty so that leaves it mostly to me. Hopefully someone will give us some answer soon!

THIS IS WHY THIS IS NEEDED! Nobody needs to feel like they can't express who they are on a site like this! Isn't this all about like-minded Mama's *and daddy's.... getting together to discuss and debate (no matter how heated)... and ask for advice and learn from each other? If you can't be yourself (without persecution) then what's the point of coming?
