I know I'm not a woman or even a mum but as Monty Python once said 'It's my right as a man to be a woman and it's every man's right to have babies if he wants them and anyone who says I can't is oppressing me'.

Is it too soon to joke a little about this thread? If so, I'll accept any subsequent ban :)
Who knew Python would be so prophetic? ;)

I am a mumsnetter, came here because I enjoyed Jon's content on there. Yes, of course he was plugging some of his links, we're all doing it. It'd have been fine to ask him to stop doing that if it irked people that much. However, the way a very small number of people spoke about him on there was disgusting. Being a mum and needing extra income does not make me 'vulnerable' and Jon never took advantage of it. He offered information and it was up to me whether I took it or not, and whether I choose to go with his links or someone else's.

I think you are being extremely rude, and also feel perplexed at the intensity of your posts. He didn't take food out of the mouth of babies. He simply posted content. Every mumsnetter had the choice of using his links or not. I certainly didn't suddenly start quivering and pee'd my pants because there was a 'man about'. How ridiculous. We are not all in a victim mentality. This has nothing to do with sexism, women being seen as second class, being underhanded or any of the other insults you are throwing about.

Please do not try to speak on behalf of other women. We have our own voices to use, if we feel the need to. As much as you are 'disgusted' by him doing everything wrong in your mind, I am appalled by your post. It is completely misdirected.
There was something said by another poster on mumsnet (not OP) that I was quite annoyed about as it was personal and I didn't think it was ok but I decided not to call them up about it as frankly I was already tired by it all!

Hasn’t it just? Most people take feedback on the chin and move on. This has just turned into an insult-fest.
Did you actually read your first post before sending - a number of accusations of being greedy, saying he disgusted you, commented on sexism and oppression, said it was vile.

Aren't the other women on mumsnet lucky to have you to tell them which links they should be using? If they want to click on someone link I am sure they should be allowed to.

Jon it's obvious that you are trying to help people and approach this subject with high morals.

Building a website like this takes balls and you should be proud of yourself i cant believe the abuse its ridiculous.

I have a lot of sympathy as I've been kicked off a forum or two for 'wrongthink' in the past. Somehow it's always the far left types who get in these positions and abuse their power. Glad it's not like that here.

I have to disagree here with you. The person in charge of the thread Jon was banned from is absolutely lovely and does not abuse her power, it's not that kind of thread. On the whole, the mumsnetters on that thread are as supportive as here and our politics are largely not involved. I really don't understand how it got to this stage!

Everybody have a good day and stay out of trouble Jon, no more drama!

I have to be honest I don't know exactly what happened or how it works. I don't know if he's completely off Mumsnet or just the thread! I just didn't think he deserves the negative comments. Quite a few of us appreciated his input. It is what it is and hopefully Jon is not permanently scarred!

wow what an aggressive original post, stay classy everyone :D :D

Cant say much about the thread as the posts have gone, but going by the about us page for mumsnet its for parents not just mothers so why a father cannot add some links is beyond me!?!
