I thought the nest had dumb people. BOTB is a freaking Mensa meeting in comparison to Yahoo Answers. Never in my life have I had such a constant feeling of “oh my god what on earth are they going to say next?”
This is a rundown of a half hour spent on Yahoo Answers TTC board. Please note that I have written it in actual proper English- do not fool yourselves into thinking this is what the questions and answers actually look like.
Can you get pregnant without doing IT?
I’ve been TTC for three years and I’m only 19- why aren’t I pregnant?
Go get a blood test done (usually in response to anyone who thinks they might have the slightest indication that they may possibly actually maybe could it be maybe pregnant.).
You need to go to a fertility doctor. (usually in response to anyone who mentions trying to get pregnant for any amount of time under a year.)
Just adopt. (usually in response to anyone who mentions trying to get pregnant for over a year).
Relax. (this is found in pretty much every single post.)
I have a ______ who ________ and she has this ________ who went on vacation and she got pregnant.
Can you tell if you are pregnant the day after you have sex?
This is just a sampling and as you can see the answers are just as asinine as the questions. No joke. It is like the ultimate train wreck.
Which brings me to my dilemma.
Every time I get on there I want to rip out my eyeballs and shove them down my throat in the hopes that I stop breathing. However, even though I may not be all knowing in the TTC arena, at times I am the only person who is giving answers that a.) make sense or b.) are actually good and correct advice. The best part is you can vote on people’s answers and almost every single one of my answers has a “thumbs down” meaning people do not think it was a good answer. Right. So I feel that if I leave it will continue to be the blind leading the freaking blind.
