    I would have more respect for the Globe

          I would have more respect for the Globe / Boston.com  if they had the decency and respect for modern  families to call this section parenting, or families, or any inclusive term other than  MOMS.
          The masthead title still stinks, plain and simple.  That it was changed from Parents  to Moms was a giant step backwards, and is still objectionable.

    Well, this is Massachusetts, where fathers have no rights.

    I agree. How about BoParents?

    How about a 'Boston Dads' section ?

    Why not be inclusive of other people in the child's life, too?  So you could call this section "Bo Peeps"!

    Great idea, Cos! lol

    Btw, the name always bothered me, especially when you consider that people that are ttc are listed under moms. I hated seeing that when I was trying so hard for over a year and was not a mom, but was just stuck under that banner.

    Funny how my posts in this section have all been deleted. I explained at length my thoughts about what RHM is saying but apparently BDC dottie didn't like it.  I had several well-thought out, intelligent posts that contained nothing in them that violated BDC rules.  Nice to know that any opposing opinion to BDC will just be edited away......

    Well, then Wag must have had a different thread w/ the same name b/c this topic was raised before and I comment several times in it.  I just checked the history for the General category and it's not there. 

    BTW, cosmo, love the BoPeeps idea.  :-)

    ALF - http://www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3a982ab641-9368-4d63-9123-280cf0ac364aForum%3aed6a8439-b984-4a2f-8c37-f99dbf2e33daDiscussion%3a3fdc9d81-1d9a-4972-ad7e-f1d2dc01447a

    This thread?  Nearly 2 months ago.

    I still find it annoying.

         Dottie's explanation that they are not trying to exclude anyone, but over 90% who post are Moms-  is like  labeling a section "threads that appeal to white people"  then saying,  well most of the posters here are white, and nothing says others cannot post.

         Going to another Masthead title - other than Moms - might not bring in a greater variety of posters, but might be less offensive to many already here.

    That's the one Wag. I didn't realize you posted a new one.

    I'm still loving the Bo Peeps idea.  :-)

    ALF, just read the previous thread. Laughed at the mention of the Mother's Day card (since it was me!). Ah, memories...
