    Well as most know I don't come in here very often and I see threads off and on that my husband points out. Most of them I never comment on but it does make for fun conversation for Ed and I. But recently a member here pissed me off and so I chose to do the polite thing and PM her my opinion on her comments on a thread I saw. I didn't feel it right to blab it to the entire board but now she feels that by my telling her how I feel about her opinion on a thread she felt compelled to call me trailer trash.

    This person seems to feel that her opinion on this board should be taken as law, in my opinion. Anyone who has a different opinion is told there wrong by her. It is people like her that cause me not to come in here very often because they upset so. I find that I have an opinion and sure people will slam me for it cause I don't sugar coat it, thus my signature. But to call me trailer trash for that is so bullshit. Granted I do live in a trailer and OMG I am white, so to have a person of a different culture call me trailer trash and not know who I am or at least try to know me. I am sorry but this is wrong. No one should be labeled.

    I have to share my emotions right now because that is who I am.
    I find that some females on this site love putting men down. What I find ironic is this is a male support group site.

    I don't know what exactly caused someone to say that to you, but your posts are more sensible and intelligent than a lot of people around here. I lived in a trailer for part of my life and many of my family members (including my awesome grandmother) still live in them. Where you live has nothing to do with what kind of person you are. So fuck them for hurling insults like that. It's not cool, no cooler than getting on someone for their race, how much money they make, their job, their sexual orientation, their religion, etc.

    It's better to live in a trailer and be a decent person than to live in a mansion and be an asshole.

    Wow -- what a creep.

    Home Sweet Home is where your heart is, and the physical attributes of a home have NOTHING to do with the size, quality and application of one's heart.

    Seems like we have a Grinch among us. (Refering to the person who pm'ed you)

    What's the difference between trash and a Las Vegas hooker?



















    Trash gets picked up.

    I lived in a trailer house for a while as a child, and I don't see anything wrong with it. It's not like we lived in a bad part of town, or like our house was falling apart or anything like that.

    When my grandparents first moved here from Carson City, they bought this great piece of land backing right up to the river, and they bought a new trailer and put it there. I remember going there in the summer and loving it. My grandfather was a carpenter, and he built this great front porch and back deck. I loved that house.

    So many mobile homes today are very nice. Honestly. My mother has been thinking of buying one for a while now, but she hasn't decided where she wants to buy the property to put one. I have gone with her to look at different new mobile homes, and I am dead serious... some of them are REALLY nice.

    Don't feel ashamed of what kind of home you live in. Be glad you have a home. It sounds like the person who degraded you is a very stuck-up spoiled upperclass person who thinks their shit doesn't stink, but guess what... NOBODY is perfect.

    Living in a mobile home doesn't make you trash.

    y'know... if something said by another upsets you it is not the thing said in itself that has upset you but your own choice to see it as upsetting.


    People are hurtful to each other... you can't disagree with anyone without stepping on some margin of their ego....


    The key is to, as Monster recommends, grow a thicker skin...

    When someone attacks me, I try to look at it with humor and come back with a response that is well above the fray... or insightfully cutting....

    But I can't suggest that they should not attack me.... they can say whatever they please...


    but I am the one that chooses how I will take it.

    I don't think that you are trailer trash. There is nothing wrong with living in a trailer in a trailer park.

    I have seen people make homes out of shipping containers. (I mean those big steel shipping cargo boxes...not cardboard boxes. :rolleyes: Even though, there are people who make homes out of those.)

    Home is where the heart is.

    Yeah, I thought so, as well. If you thought that was cool. There are people buying up old rocket silos and making underground condo apartments. I have seen photos in an issue of UTNE Reader. Those were cool condos, too.

    You can find some really cool, shipping container houses in DWELL magazine. I have even read that they are rebuilding homes in New Orleans with shipping containers.

    Ohhh! I'll have to remember that... Dwell.

    I think it's neat when people build homes out of unique things. My father lives on a farm and a few years ago he bought these videos that show homes built out of hay and explain how you can build your own! Some of them were pretty cool! I guess he (or my stepmother) were thinking about doing this. They have a farm, and this was before they bought their mobile home and moved out there.

    Ed69sGirl,

    I am so sorry someone had the unmittigated gall to go there with you.That was a low blow indeed. There is no shame in living in a trailer or being whatever ethnic group you may happen to be. Yes, your feelings are important and you are entitled to your opinion. I like the fact that you chose to try to talk quietly instead of having a full blown battle in the middle of the board causing more disruption. Hang in there.

    Oh, for whoever did say this, REGARDLESS of what you felt provoked you, get it together. The name calling and nastiness on this board is way past tired. Also, for those of you who keep telling anyone who expresses concerns on the board to get over it , step back and take a deep breath and think about yourself in a situation where you might one day need help or even a sympathetic word. It may come sooner than you think. Don't expect kindness if you have none to share.
