My focus for this thread though isn’t sexism in general, but the mistaken belief that being female makes someone incapable of original thought and/or incapable of understanding a topic put forth for discussion. What is it that has caused some posters to believe that's true?
More importantly, why is it brought up mid-discussion in an attempt to invalidate and demean female posters for doing nothing more than discussing the topic at hand?
30. There are no girls on the internet

Society is to blame for this. Still, females are raised to think there main goal in life should be marriage and a family. They are also taught that; No one likes a smart girl

i suspect the reason why it seems women are irrational so often, that it has actually become a permanent description of their behavior by some men, is due primarily to the lack of data and not irrationality. unless you can prove with some awe-inspiring mathematical truth or something, that women are inherently irrational, i'm gonna chalk it up to incomplete communication .
