Someone sent me a pm today telling me my blinkie is offensive because I don't know why or what they've been through and she came accross really angry, told me that beliefs don't belong on a message board where we are supposed to be supporting each other. I told her that it's my belief, I don't judge others for having abortions, I pray for them and I would pray for her, too. I also asked her if we should be so sensitive to other's feelings and remove breastfeeding blinkies so we don't offend women who don't or can't bf. Or maybe weightloss tickers because people struggle with losing weight, and even pregnancy tickers because so many women struggle with infertility. She told me I was stupid, to keep my prayers and to shove my pro-life b.s. up my a**

Thoughts? How would you have handled it?

Well, at this point I think you should just ignore her if she sends you another pm that is offensive. If she wants to engage in a discussion that is one thing but if she just wants to give you a hard time there is no use responding to her.

Don't butt heads over it, pray hard because she's obviously hurting.

If she pms you again I'd tell her she can turn off signatures so she doesn't see it, if she finds it so offensive.

Yeah, she's obviously angry and hurt, which I also told her in response to her message to me. I feel bad for her but, jeez! Who thought that not wanting babies to die would be so offensive to someone. Anyway, thanks ladies. I haven't heard back from her and I doubt I will.

So do I.

Some people are going to find reasons to attack others no matter what. We all have freedom to express what we believe and if she's taking it personally then it's something she has to come to terms with on her own. She shouldn't be bullying you and saying things like that to you. I hope that's the last you hear of her.

If she was really rude or offensive I'd email a Admin about it.

Well, she was rude but, she's been through something very traumatic and I told her she was obviously hurt and angry but that she was taking it out on the wrong person. I haven't heard from her again. If she were to start harassing me, I'd contact admin.

I agree with the idea of telling her to turn of siggies if she finds things in them offensive. I've seen "Pro-Obama" "Anti-Obama" stuff on here. If we can get political...anyway...I even more agree with what Ro said here. If she said something rude to you, I'd FWD that PM straight to Rachel or Twinkle. That's not OK.
