I personally think it is funny and shouldn't be taken seriously when someone uses it. I get more of a chuckle at those who are offended by it then those who use it.  ;)

I said "no," but I guess that's because my wife isn't much of an authoritarian.  Neither of us are, really.  I realize the acronym is used in jest, but I guess it's not my brand of humor.

Oh is that what that means?  I always thought it meant Single White Male Body Odor. :)

I always thought it was kind of silly and reveals a rather spineless man, but that's just my opinion.

That said, I wouldn't expect her to use HWMBO and I would be kind of embarrassed if she did.

I didn't mean to imply you were. I personally don't use it, but I don't cast stones or judgement at those who do. That's just kinda silly to do so.

I guess I always thought it was more of a reflection about how controlling some women can tend to be. My wife and I have a very balanced relationship but I can tell you that when she gets into "mom mode" she sometimes has to be reminded that I am not "one of the boys."  ;)

I hope none of you were expecting pictures of my wife! Pervs!

I knew the "No Pants" option would get some hits this time ;D

+1 I've used it, but its always been in a 'tongue in cheek' way.  Its a partnership in my house.  If either party makes unreasonable demands, the other is quick to let them know and flat out refuse the demands.

Personally I find the term to be just stupid.

Mind you... Not as stupid or gay sounding as say "KEGGLE" but stupid just the same
