No, this thread isn't the reason I joined. Nor am I outraged, just disappointed. This is certainly not how I intended to start off here. I'm actually quite embarrassed and feel as though my insight and opinion aren't welcome here.
I've debated joining for a long while, but I much prefer to be more of an observer than a speaker. Theres only so much you can learn from lurking without actually engaging with other members and having discussions, and I thought it time to start. Your thread just happened to come up at the top of new posts.
I understand that you intended this to be funny and I'm sure many found it so. I was merely offering another perspective.
In regards to your last question, I experience this kind of thing constantly as a woman. So, to me, a joke it is not. It's a sad true commentary on our society, if anything.
