Tuesday Tidbits: Ladies Fun Poll
Olivia_WebMD_Staff posted:
Ladies, we haven't done this is a while as this is sometimes a more serious community, but let's give it a shot.

1) What's your favorite thing about being a woman?

2) What's your biggest pet peeve about being a woman?

Let's try and set a record with this one and get this community moving and groovin'! If you have girlsfriends on other boards, invite them over to join in.

butterflygarden responded:
1) Love being hardwired to nurture. The difference between the way my husband and I interact with our kids is so interesting. He's very matter of fact, and I am empathetic.

2) Right now? Perimenopause. Nightmare periods. ARGH

tlkittycat1968 responded:
1. I love almost everything about being a woman. If I had to pick one thing it would be having an excuse to have a lot of clothes.

2. Hands-down having a period. It curtails our sex life and occasionally limits my activities.
rhondamay responded:
1) Being a wife, mother and grandmother.

2) Menopause

LadyLynx123 responded:

Q2: menstrual and vajay problems lol
Caprice_WebMD_Staff responded:
What a fun discussion!

1. I love just about everything about being a woman and always did. Since we're here on WebMD, I'll share one to do with health... I think we're lucky because our bodies will let us know very quickly if there's something out of synch that needs our attention.

2. I have to admit, perimenopause leaves a lot to be desired.

Caprice, long time no see. I've been on WebMD for a number of years and remember you as one of the moderators. Hope things have been going well for you.
Iamold responded:
1) As a women, I was able to wed Mr. Wonderful. I was able to bare his childern. I was able to keep his house. I was able to share in his life and have him make me complete.

2) As a women I was forced by body and social pressures to comform to a demeaning, small life of kids and home. I was unable to grow, to prosper mentaly and become all that I was capable of becoming.
Iamold responded:
1) Favorite? Wedding Mr. Wonderful. Bearing his childern. Making his house his home. Allowing him to make me and my life complete.
2) Peeve? Being content with a small life. Being unable to grow and prosper mentaly to become the person I was think I was able to be.
IrwinsLady responded:
