Also mum2harrison a lot of ppl made some really good comments but the only thing u reply to is my lame joke/comment bout popularity??
Nothing else to say ha smile
Yes, I chose to reply to that 'lame' popularity joke as it was the most interesting thing I've read on the majority of replies. I did not want this to turn into a tit-for-tat, but what the hell - its a Sunday, my baby is asleep and I have 5 minutes to spare. So lets do this.
Firstly ...how dare you deem something you see as "not right" as child abuse ...this is not for you to decide ...child abuse is a serious and incredable damaging thing ...and you go and bandy the word around like it is nothing ....this is wrong and I would like you to edit your origional post ..it is offensive to all those who have suffered abuse in any way .....child abuse is being smacked around ...refussed bacis needs nad being mentally put down and degreded ....not having an unusual name ....I am not a surviver of child abuse and I find it offensive ...imagine how those who have suffered feel ??????
*sigh* This has already brought up in this thread (to which I have previously replied. Perhaps if you HAD bothered to read other posts, then perhaps YOUR comments would have been more contructive. But lets revisit shall we?
dakotagrace posted a text book description of child abuse. One of the definitions were, and I quote:
* Emotional abuse includes constant yelling, threatening, scaring a child, belittling them or playing games with their emotions.
Is not setting your child up for ridicule by naming him/her something obscure/made up emotional abuse?
And I mean c'mon people - we're talking about names like Apple, Adolph Hitler & Archeron here!
And why cannot I deem something as I not see right as child abuse? I mean, lets be honest, what I have said meets the criteria. Its not like I've made something up willy-nilly. And also, honey, this is Australia and we all have the right to freedom of speech smile
and secondly .....who cares ??? you name your child what you like and I will name mine what I like ...as long as it is in line with the law ...who gives a ratts ???? I am tierd of reading threads that are whoely and souly directed at making someone feel stupid !! ...I am sick of it ...
Sweety, I would love to know who I'm directing this at as the original post isn't targerting anyone. It was a general comment on society. *yawn*. Still with me?
what would you do if one of the nicest people in the forum had chosen somethign like ....i dont know ....ignatious as their cilds name ....not only will they now feel stupid but they are now labeled a child abuser ....
Ignatious = NOT child abuse
Adolph Hitler = child abuse
And once again, I would love to know who I made feel stupid? Are there people in Huggies land who name their children after pieces of fruit nad Nazi dictators?
this thread topic should have stayed in your head ...!! ....this is not constructive at all !!
For you perhaps smile
And I really did not want this to turn into one of those petty little high school arguments - but it seems some people cannot help themselves... including myself now obviously.
