Should You Blog About Sex With Other Bloggers?

At New Delhi Zoo

This past week I read more posts that mom bloggers wrote about how dumb their husbands are and I wondered what is wrong with these women.

It is not the first time I have seen posts like this nor will it be the last. It is a phenomena in which some people think it is cute, clever and or funny to write a post about how dumb their spouse is.

And to be fair, I have seen posts written by men about their wives that cross this line too, but not as many. What I can’t remember seeing are posts by gays in which they badmouth their partners/spouses.

Don’t know if it is because I haven’t come across it or if it is because it doesn’t happen.

I Don’t Understand This

If you know me in real life you know I am mostly unfiltered. I speak my mind pretty openly and share my thoughts but I do it to a point.

You will rarely hear me talk about certain personal matters because there are boundaries and because it is unfair.

When you supposedly love someone why do you think it is ok to write posts that make them look ignorant and moronic. Some stories are funny and sometimes it is ok to talk about something someone did because it was kind of silly.

Sometimes you read these posts and are confident that the subject would laugh and consider this teasing and sometimes you wonder about the line because it comes across as being mean spirited.

So I ask myself where the line is and do people even recognize when it is being crossed?

Too Much Information

Have we reached a point in time where too much information no longer exists?

If tell you about the woman who caught me with her tooth while simultaneously stabbing my “lower package” with a fingernail and how I howled in pain is that funny.

BTW, that didn’t happen. I don’t howl.

No, really, it didn’t happen. I am just unfiltered.

But even if I wasn’t making that up I didn’t say who I was talking about because sometimes you just need to keep some things to yourself.

Sorry Eddie Snowden and Julian Assange, I don’t believe that sharing everything with everyone is good. Sometimes those leaks hurt people far more than they help, but I digress.

Hard Stop

One of my favorite things about blogging is how it serves as a place to share our thoughts and how you can capture a snapshot in time.

What that hard stop refers to is I am not going to go back and edit this to try and make it look any more polished than a quick 13 minutes of writing.

It is just a moment in time, capturing some thoughts.

But I will link to several other pieces that I had thought about weaving in here because I thought it was worth tying them in one capacity or another.

Yeah, I could have taken a few more minutes to tie them in but I want to see a movie and have to run to make sure that I get there on time.

It is the weekend and sometimes the best thing we can do is disconnect for a few minutes and not worry about fans, followers, readers or circles.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is get out and spend time in the real world doing things with people you care about. Try it sometime, you might like it.

You might have something more interesting to write about that doesn’t consist of complaining about how fat your spouse is or the biological weapon they released in the bathroom.

    I totally agree with you. Not sure what the spouse bashing is all about.

    I dunno, my husband brings home goats. I find that irresistable to write about, because it is licking my leg.

    I regularly feel like I shared far too much information, but there is a ton more that I am dying to write about but feel I can’t. Maybe my line draw-er thingdingy is off on vacation at the beach 🙂

      Julie, I read your post about the goat and the maggots. Yes, your mentioned your husband, but it was not at all mean-spirited. You said that you LIKE your husband and you appreciate that he works hard so you can be at home with all the little people and animals. Your husband sounds really interesting (maggots and flies?!?), but I don’t get the impression you think he’s an idiot.

      The goat is the unsung hero of your posts, cracks me up.

    I can’t imagine anyone thinks readers care about idiot spouses. How boring.

      Hi Sherrilynne,

      Well there seem to be blogs where people share these tales. I tend not to spend much time in these places because they don’t do much if anything for me.

      But since I frequent multiple groups in the blogosphere I do come across them from time to time.

    I’ve never understood knocking your spouse either. Not only is it a little mean spirited but it always leaves me wondering why that person would have married (generally him) in the first place.

  5. Elizabeth Lee June 29, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Yes! If your spouse is really that dumb, why did you marry him? And if you love him, why are you trying to make him look like an idiot in the eyes of the whole world?
