All the comments have been taken from the daily mail online website and my facebook page. These comments are in response to a post I had shared on my facebook page about buying underwear for my child that was about gender stereotypes in clothes. All spelling and grammatical errors are the contributors’ own and have been retained so as not to misrepresent them.
I had such a massive response, of negative comments at first, it was quite over whelming. Once I realised that my story was shared on the daily mail, I braced myself for the negativity that was about to descend in the comments. Alas, all I could see was the funny side. As my dad always says; “Look for the humour first. Always.”
I am a blogger, this is my job. I also know that I blog about very specific things that many people might not like. In a way I was already ignoring the hateful comments as soon as they arrived. Mainly, because I was finding people who cared about what I say and cared about the person behind the article. Many wonderful woman messaged me to see if I was ok. This showed me that amongst so much hate, you really have to look for the good because if you don’t then you might drown.
