Where I come from, women really don't have much for original thought that I see. Most are followers and conformists, certainly not engaging themselves in deeper conceptualization. I hear mostly mindless jibber-jabber about nothing. When they do conjure up a decent thought, it takes them 15,000 years to get to it... the men could have communicated it in a half of a statement.
What I’d like to understand is why this view is held at all. How did it come about? Why, in this day and age, is it still held at all?

I think that -mostly- people cannot tell I am a woman. I have been called dude and sir, numerous times. Which is fine with me. I see no need to let everyone -know- for certain, what your gender is here.
Women are incapable of understanding an issue so complex as the one being discussed; They should stick to neutral topics where they will be better capable of contributing; Men in a group will each speak their own mind, women in a group will just develop mind-think and agree with the majority because they have no individual opinions; Women cannot have an independent/rational/correct thought without first having it explained to them by a man; Claims of sexism are unfounded because women irrationally believe that everything is a conspiracy against them.

I'm still unsure who are the male and who are the female posters on ATS to be honest. I still get surprised when someone gives away their gender in a comment when all along I thought they were the opposite. It makes it very hard to flirt
