When you see someone on YouThink with `parenting` listed as an interest in their profile alongside things like `drinking` or `partying`, does it make you question their parenting skills?

Excellent Question.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/27/04 - 5:54:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
People actually look at that crap?
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/27/04 - 6:13:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't really analyze people's interests too heavily.

Just because it says drinking doesn't mean that they enjoy to get drunk. There is a difference. It doesn't mention if they enjoy drinking or drinking frequently, maybe they enjoy drinking occasionally.

If it said partying I might wonder but I would think having children might lead to the drinking, lol

I never read profiles... how funny, parenting, partying and drinking... maybe they have teenagers!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:06:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha ... I've never noticed it before, but I saw a (journals of course) thread this week where the regulars were making fun of a girl for having drinking and parenting as her things. Then I thought about it, that IS kind of funny!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:07:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
why the drinking? one can drink responsibly.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:08:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like the pictures I found though - the one on the left is the best! Drinking, partying, AND flirting with parenting. The mental image of the kind of person that could be isn't a good one

I dunno, my parents went to parties when i was a kid, other parents brought their kids and we used to play in another part of the house, they used to get drunk but not falling over drunk, it never did me any harm.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:17:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but I checkd my own profile first to make sure I wasn't one of them.
It's not so much their parenting skills I would question as their priorities.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:23:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I was on youthink before I had a kid and drinking was one of my interests. I changed one of them to parenting after I had the baby, I never changed the drinking one, its not one of my interests anymore due to my baby, but it was still there when some dude decided to argue with me about something stupid. It was probably me you were reading about Kiki, but there weren't regulars making fun of me, it was just one man trying to sound intelligent by calling women slaves and saying they belonged in the kitchen.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:24:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't argue that point with the dude, it seemed pointless, so I never had the chance to justify myself.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:25:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh. Well alcohol WAS around in my house when I was a child, and I'm not an alcoholic or anything, so..
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:25:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I s'pose so.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:36:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Charisma I think it *was* you ... sorry to use that as an example, I just thought it was funny! People were being freaks to you in that thread
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 12:47:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
"it was just one man trying to sound intelligent by calling women slaves and saying they belonged in the kitchen."

Haha I remember when momus did that. He was joking about the kitchen stuff, fyi. He's almost as much a feminist as I.

He and I have had dicussions about this before and had another one after the incident.

Simply put, yes I do. I also love the parents who have pictured of their children in thier photos and then pictures of themselves drinking or quasi nude photos of themselves.

As usual you have missed the point, pegasus. It's not about whether a parent consumes alcohol; it's about whether drinking is such an important thing in his or her life that it warrants mentioning in the profile alongside the interest in parenting.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 3:12:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I just listed everything in the 'C' category. Does that make me a bad camper?
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 3:15:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not necessarily.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 10:48:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
BTW, I changed it after Mr. Meanie pointed it out.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 10:50:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
no..
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/1/04 - 8:16:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. Not that I know the situation around the drinking/partying, but it seems... Odd... To have those listed next to parenting.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 1:49:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. A person can drink and "party" at appropriate times and still ensure the welfare of their children. One does not necessarily have to effect the other, it depends on whether the parent is a responsible person or not.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 1:52:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO, because my profile is a crock of bullsh*t, and I figure most everyone else's is too.
