I think #48 is trying to say withholding sex is a slippery slope. Not saying cheating is ok but it really does give him an excuse or if it works she could really abuse that power over him. Talking it out would really be better.

48, I am one of many who agree with you here. It hasn't taken me long to realize how sexist this site is. All these posters will side with the woman and defend the women is most scenarios here. There have been FML's where a woman hits a guy, and they put YDI. Also the worst one was a YDI one where a guy got stabbed with a pen, but ''he deserved it'' becasue he broke up with her in a mall, valid excuse for assault? No, and I agree, using sex as a weapon is not healthy but of course you're gonna get down voted because of the sexism here.

If a guy did something douchy and she doesn't feel like fucking him, it's not "using sex as a weapon" it's a WOMAN NOT WANTING TO FUCK A DOUCHE, and no there isn't any excuse to cheat. Jesus.

It's not that she owes it to the man, obviously if there's trouble both parts will think twice before heading to bed. What's being discussed is the deliberate use of sex as a reward/punishment currency. It's very poisonous for a relationship, whether it comes from a man or a woman.

It's not an excuse, it's sadly a reason that destroys relationships. You don't use the things that bonds you as a punishment. You seek help and talk things out. Hence why communication is the key and why you you learn how to spice things up and not by spite! *can I get an amen?*

I'm not ignoring the behavior of the guys but it is simply being scrutinized for no reason. It can be so easily dealt with thru communication. In the heat of the moment, The mom should be hella mad, the son will definitely have one of those moments where he goes "oops sorry mom", the dad sees the humor in it but his wife will definitely see it too but not in front of her son which is what he will definitely say to his husband. It's called family situations. And that's how you deal with that one! *shout me an amen please*

And Sasha, in a healthy relationship/marriage, you owe your husband as much loving as he owes you; hence the vows "for better or for worse". *can a bro get another amen*

"The behavior of the guy"... It's all down to the actual circumstances. The OP writes it like her son hurt her on purpose. They were playing a game, there is a fair chance it was accidental and it's pretty obvious she is not badly injured. The kid was very cheeky, but all her husband did was laugh. Some bad behavior this is.

I'm going to be honest. Not that I condone him pushing his mom but that's how boys play, like instinct. But what he said after should be what's really punished. Surprised the husband just laughed.

#100, I'm a woman with a sense of humor too. I can laugh at even the most sexist jokes. However, what her son said was disrespectful to his mother, regardless if he was joking or not. You don't talk to your parents like that, period.

I totally agree with you. My mother and I have an amazing relationship and I respect her as my mother and I follow her rules and I love her but we both make jokes at eachother and even get into name calling matches. Which yes might seem a little immature but we have fun doing it and it brings us closer.

Why is everyone defending the kid and husband by saying, "Oh, he was joking"? Who gives a shit if he was joking, the kid was still disrespectful and the context of the joke was sexist and offensive. If I was the mom I would have broke my foot off in both their asses.

Well she's right, some guys are judgmental about menstruation. The reason she only said guys is because little to no women judge each other about periods because it is something we all experience. However, some guys are lovely and understanding, she is not meaning to generalise you all, there are only a few bad eggs who just don't get it. This being said, there are some women who are judgmental about issues that men face too.

dare someone point out that a lot of guys (not just a few bad eggs) are extremely disrespectful towards women, are sexist and condone this kind of thing all the while demanding women never call them on it. So no, not "some" guys.

Actually, 106, Some women don't experience PMS, one such being my girlfriend. She complains about girls she knows are on their periods "using it as an excuse to be a bitch." So while some women actually can't help it, some overreact. It's a generalization to say every girl has it rough when that's simply just not the case.

I think you should read my comments..they will definitely help you hop off the sexism (in general) bandwagon. Can we all get along? Let's open out minds! Amen?!

#41 also besides costs, what the hell does that teach the kid? Not to mention how fucked up that is to purposely seriously injure your child. Push him around a bit but you took it pretty far

Does nobody remember that it's her kid? Ya, he's overly competitive and a little rough on the court. But good parenting is explaining how self control is necessary even in a competitive environment. Not yelling at him for "being an idiot." Calling your kid names and acting like a child yourself only creates resentment and diminishes respect. I've lost respect for my parents for similar reasons. I find it funny when they say I need to show them respect because they're so insecure. If you want your kids respect, you have to earn it, not demand it. OP sounds like the type of parent who lost it, just by calling her son an idiot for a competitive tendency.

she lost it bc he made her cut her arm pretty badly...not bc she was as competitive as he was. But great point you've made and I can't understand why you've been thumbed down so much...asshats did this I'll bet. I like saying asshats. lol

All electronics would be gone, too, and if he had to use the Internet to do homework, he'd have to stay after school. An uncaring, swearing kid needs to learn a lesson.

her son is already past the point of no return...there is no sending him to his room. it's preparing him for adulthood ASAP so he can have his own space outside of the house.

Sometimes wouldn't think twice just means he wouldn't even think about doing it at all. Sometimes it's the other way around like you mentioned but I don't think they're talking about it like that

There's being able to joke back and forth with your kid and there's letting them disrespect you. Anyway, let me know about the "mountain of respect" you get in return.

#140 as I said, I place far more value on intent and inner beliefs than on jokes people don't mean. Someone can act respectful but deep down not give a shit about what the other person thinks or wants; likewise, someone can make snarky jokes with no intention of offense and actually care deeply about the other person's wishes. So long as there is a mutual understanding of no harm meant/done, there is nothing necessarily wrong with the latter. There is, however, something very wrong with the former. I have experienced both kinds of relationships with both my parents; funny how both me and my little brother ended up rebellious and defiant towards our mother but would never dream of upsetting our father. He was reasonable and firm with other rules but when it came to communication he allowed us equal freedom of speech, you might say. He always explained his decisions and if we disagreed with anything, he'd hear us out. He never instilled any sort of communication barrier, never once punished us for 'talking back'; as a result I value his opinions, heed his advice and seek his approval to this day. And indeed, we're super close/comfortable with each other, to the point where we can make terrible jokes about each other like old friends. If that's not a positive parental relationship, I don't know what is. But I'm happy to agree to disagree. I guess it's just one of those things where you have to have experienced it to understand it.
