Is this board WOH dominated?

It’s been my impression that this message board is dominated by WOHM. And so, pro-WOH opinions dominate in most debates.

<< I think that there may be more WOHM's on this board but that mirrors society in general.>>


Yes, that's true. But, it doesn't really explain why the handful of SAHMs that are here aren't more vocal.

I believe that sah nor woh make any difference at all.

<<I didn’t see many SAHMs express pro-SAH views. >>


I think that's because many of the sahms on this board have done both and know that EITHER choice is good for raising kids.

What I see as a SAHM is that there are certainly more currently-WOHMs posting (whether they have ever SAH or not), and that someone who comes in full-steam (as it IS a debate board about WOH/SAH) is sent packing fairly quickly if they try to start a debate from a pro-SAH standpoint.

Really? I see fewer militantly anti-SAH posts on this board than militantly anti-WOH posts, but both are responded to pretty harshly. I'm thinking of mom2ajoy's recentish post about how she refuses to be friends with SAH moms or pretty much any of gr8tefulmom's posts.
