Another stupid post by another stupid woman. Why arn't you in the kitchen anyways?! Gosh!


Wooha, wait a minute. Thats just satire. Satire is what you call unfunny or discrimanatory jokes. Truthfully I have never seen reference to posters sex but i'm a man. I don't think anyone with moderate intelligence would take a sexist poster seriously. That said, its obviously not OK and as long as enough people are aware of it and call others out, then it should stop.

Hey Jenna.

I don't think it is neccesarily a "deep" question.

(1) Cultural/How you were raised.
(2) Exposure to actual women.

Deficits in either of those areas will leave people vulnerable to resorting to stereotypical and dated views.



Hey Jenna...after reading the recent posts I need to amend/add to my original posting.

(3) Some people just have a passive and sometimes not so passive hatred of women.

There are man haters out there too.

I am sure there is a clinical explanation, but my guess is that these are just people that have too often had their advances rejected by the opposite sex and have opted to vent thier frustration anonomously via the internet. That or Mommy didn't love them enough and they are taking it out on women et al...who knows...who cares.

At the very least this thread was productive in shining a light on the idiots who view women this way...I had never seen it before on ATS until this thread.

And your trying to portray intelligence with this thread ..... 1 word ... FAIL


And there we have what I've been talking about and what you insist is a non-issue that I'm just making up.

Female posters are unintelligent because they are unintelligent when trying to portray intelligence. That's some backwards twisted logic, if you ask me.

yes sure. well, first of all i never seen anyone say those things on ats, could you provide sources please?


Sure, an example follows:


secondly, i know it happens in real world and the answer would be that women like to discuss feelings and emotional topics, like this thread, because they think more with the right hemisphere of their brain.
men, on the other hand are more left brained creatures. they like to discuss topics that are rational, and relevant, and tend to frown upon emotional topics. i hope that answers your question.


What you are saying is that women do not talk about things that are rational or relevant because they are emotional while men are not.

Man so much rubbish gets posted in these threads. On deep levels all men hate women and vice versa.

My life was destroyed because i had no interest in females, so i can speak out for teh opposing side, of what females are and what they do.

I wonder how many innocent males are in jail for not wanting to have sex with some female in this world.

Someone has to say this, or these useless shrinks come on here talking about this is why males feel this way.

How about the males for not being interested in females, where destroyed by them.

If as a male your life was destroyed for not fancying females, would you say that male is wrong for not liking females. I would say any man on this planet that was in prison for not wanting to have sex with females, has a right not to like them.

You see the news never reports these things as males are not meant to talk about them.

No, unfortunately it is not a joke,the thread is serious and so the response should be.Women proved,yet again,they are little girls incapable of handling any critique.No wonder they shouldn't vote,their volatile natures and cowardice only spell disaster.

Exactly.

Well put, about moaning about sources, why should we be a test bed for government scum trying to find answers.

People from the news most definitely come here stealing our ideas.

I must, with respect, say that I cannot understand how one could argue that this is not a "real problem." What constitutes a topic worthy of discussion is subjective and relative in my opinion. Everyone is, of course, free to hold their own opinion to the contrary if they wish, but that doesn't invalidate the views of those who feel that this is a topic worthy of discussion.

This is a discussion forum with myriad allowable topics. If one were to believe this thread was in the wrong place, then perhaps a case could conceivably made to have it moved, but the discussion itself cannot be rendered somehow irrelevant or merit-less - or, indeed, stop it from occurring - just because any number of people in the world believe that to be the case in my opinion.

As to the actual topic at hand itself:

I personally regard it as remarkably self-evident that female humans are every bit as intelligent, thoughtful, creative, original, and insightful as male humans. Are there certain patterns of behavior that can seem endemic to one gender or another? Yes, but this is true of both men and women. What many people seem to overlook (or simply disagree with, which is their right) is that the two are often intertwined.

For example, one male stereotype is that men can be brutish, callous, insensitive, and in the extreme, abusive. Such men do of course exist, and no one can effectively argue against that in my opinion. Are these men representative of all men? Absolutely not. Are there even some women with those traits? Absolutely. An example of a female stereotype is that women are over-emotional, reliant on male opinion to exercise judgment, and not self-sufficient. Women matching those descriptions do, sadly, exist. Are they in any way representative of all women? Absolutely not. Are there even some men who share those same traits? Absolutely.

Now, this is where it gets more complicated and what a lot of people, at least in my experience, choose to overlook or deny. In my experience at least, there are many instance when one gender being raised by the other gender having the aforementioned traits (a girl being raised by an abusive father for example) can directly result in the other traits emerging. For example, men who are emotionally or physically abused by their fathers (or mothers! Yes, it happens) who grow up to be abusive (or just emotional wrecks) themselves, or women who are verbally abused by their fathers and grow up continually seeking validation from other men because they never received it from their fathers (often also seeking mates who are just as abusive.)

So not only are these stereotypes not at all representative of all the members of either gender, but the two often overlap, and mutually reinforce each other. People who see these stereotypes play out in real life often end up becomming sexist because they feel that the stereotype has been confirmed, when in reality they are just participating in their own stereotype in the process. For instance: Men who end up believing all women are one way because they dated a few women who were (often because they were raised by women matching those stereotypes,) and women who believe all men are abusive and insensitive because they dated several who were (often because they were raised by abusive fathers and unconsciously sought them out ironically.) By assuming that the fraction of the male or female population they encounter that matches those descriptions represent all of that gender, they are themselves falling into the stereotypical prison of the sexist man or woman, and they go on to raise their children and impart similar effects. Etc., etc., etc. It's a viscous cycle.

It is in my opinion a huge social problem that we as a society (and a species, really) have yet to resolve. That it rears its head in discussions on the internet is just the tip of the ice berg in my opinion, and I certainly feel it's worth discussing and being aware of. By being more aware of our own tendencies and issues, putting them in check, and being respectful of one another as true equals and fellow human beings first and foremost, we can overcome these self-imposed forms of narrow-mindedness in my my opinion. At least that is my hope for our species and society.

you know, the question in the title differs greatly from what is said on the thread. the question is about posts being original, not about women being mistreated.

Im pretty sure in the T&C it says something about saying offensive things regarding ones sex. If people are harassing you, or offending you, I'd say ignore them, or report them.

There are enough crazies on ATS as it is (myself included), we dont need misogynist crazies as well!

Just rest at ease knowing that as long as you have a Vagina YOU control the world, men just like to think otherwise.

Wow...this thread has taken a turn and ended up in freak town.

I am trying to figure out your post.

You live someplace where you are imprisoned for being gay? And therefore you hate women? Is that it?

As someone who has experienced such extremes, I would tend to agree, though perhaps not with the same conclusions someone else might draw (given that we are all different.)

reply to post by ponyboyats
 


Reading the original post, I believe that people suggesting that women are incapable of original thoughts constitutes women being treated with a lack of the respect I personally feel is due everyone, regardless of gender.

My post wasn't about women being treated poorly. It was about some of the possible origins of the kinds of sexism the OP posted about, and included examples of both men and women being cast in stereotypical lights by sexist individuals of either gender.
