    The common notion is that gays are more affluent than other groups. But on the noon news today they ran a piece that said that for every job created in the past 4 years, 2 people have been added to the food stamps program.

    So it got me wondering, are any of you on food stamps?

    I have read several topics here where guys have said they tried suicide and suffer from depression. Is saying you are on food stamps so much worse?

    Maybe. The former will get you positive encouragement, whereas the latter might have people judging you as being lazy, or a mooch. Besides, it's uncouth to discuss your financial situation on the internet, or in any social setting. I don't think this is the place for this type of topic. It reeks of being a right winger troll thread, and so most of the responses have been jokes. Maybe a better topic would be, why is miniunum wage so low that people with fulltime jobs qualify for food assitance?icon_wink.gif

    You're trying to make something out of nothing here. There's no correlation that the 2 food stamp recipients are gay or straight or male or female.

    Also, "food stamps" are being (or already are) phased out. They've been replaced by special debit cards. So now people won't feel judged by other shoppers when they buy food at the store.

    I've thought about applying, but I'd rather just starve than be seen buying groceries with them icon_cry.gif

    Food stamps are actually meant for the working poor, those who need temporary help. I don't understand why there is such a stigma about them. Probably because most people believe that only black and brown people get them, which is far from the truth.

    If you want to, then fine, but it's your private business. I would never ask someone how much money they make. That's just how I was raised.... I get that people like to complain about the cost of college, or show off their toys. But in this case, we have a known troll, who's asking who's on food stamps, with an obvious partisan agenda.

    Why?


    Because discussing money brings out mixed emotions and most of the time, they're negative. Those emotions range from sympathy for those who are struggling....to animosity towards those who have unlimited capital resources. For many people, talking about personal finance is a sensitive topic that carries a lot of stigma. Want an example? Watch a documentary called "Born Rich". It was directed by Jamie Johnson who was the heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune. Listen to what he said about what it was like to grow up with so much money.

    I think what SouthBitch is asking is "how many of you 'liberal hens' are on food stamps."
