Because there is no gender indicator on this site, I can not actually say. Although reading a post the other day it was cleverly estimated that 20%
of the ATS populatlion is female.
in all honesty if we take a poll from the ATS females, i think they may tell us that they don't feel (at least) half the guys' posts do not
on the other hand, if we take a poll from the ATS males, they may tell us that the womens' posts count twice as much as the other males do.
i've spent a few years living in muslim nations. there are things on many levels from different cultures i can find to dissagree with.
but, the truth may be (allegedly) that we share 99.7+% of the same dna, no matter what humanzee primate we are talking about.
i do feel, and have witnessed frustrations, the females have from various regions around the globe.
i once had the fortune of seeing a very interesting tv commercial in an arabic language, and in an arabic nation....
three women in their "appropriate garb" were facing the counter/sink in the kitchen. their backs were towards the camera, and they were laughing
as the camera moved towards their right and panned in on the sink and counter, it became apparent it was a dishwashing soap commercial.
then the subtext came up in english:
"________ soap. it will make all your wives happier"
i thought that made a hell of a slogan. my first inclination was to laugh, and i am sorry for that, but i thought it was a bit funny.
i wish the best for everyone no matter their status.
i just wish people would treat my home town like it was the capital of the planet when they are in my home town, and i wish i knew how to treat their
home town like it is the capital of the planet when i am in their home town.
seems like a fair enough goal.
i treat the town i'm in like the capital of earth.
you treat the town you are in like it is the capital of earth.
when you are in my town, treat it like it is the capital of earth.
when i am in your town, i will in turn treat it like it is the capital of earth.
diversity ... helps make us "unique", i think. but belonging and not being alone is also a gift.
those are some of my thoughts.
enjoy the discussion & ATS is fun,
