All those facts and statistics about aliens and 9/11 don't impress anyone in real life, they just make girls not want to talk to you. Here though, you can feel like you're appearing smart in front of other dudes online. Totally worth it.

I think we would certainly benefit from a more evenly mixed population. Sometimes the girls' "hormonally drowned out emotional responses" can be quite pleasant. Alas, for some reason they don't seem interested debating intelligent design, or whether or not someone is a starchild. It must be only smart people who are into that stuff. . .

I can't believe you said this:



I think most girls are too busy putting on make up or shopping to care about this stuff.


Completely sexist, and spreading a stereotype. Don't encourage other women to be strong, independent souls....demote them with your prejudicial views. Most women are busy becoming educated, working, mothering, volunteering or other worthwhile endeavors. Wow. Sad to see this is your perspective on women.

I "kind of" have to agree with you. SOME women can't control their emotional releases, this is a fact, not sexist. I know many whom can't access their mammalian higher brain functions during an emotional attack from their hormones, and I think this is caused by what is in the American food & water supply, not their faults.

My gf struggles with this problem on a weekly basis, and when she calms down, she sees how irrational and out of control she was at those times, and she tries learning from that experience. Men suffer from the same issues based off testosterone levels. Both of these affects cause reptilian brain functions and operations "only" and mammalian higher brain activity does not function. They want us to all act like the manimals they think we all are.

'Most girls'? Women who have the choice to primp, party and narcissisticly focus exclusively on their lives are few. 'Most girls' are going to school, working, raising children, pursuing their dreams, and still fighting for some respect from cavemen like you.

No, it is not "most girls" doing this, that is if you're talking about Americanized women. The majority of them are lost souls and heavily programed and manipulated. Their Facebook pages are sociopathic, they are going to school to "be in financial aid debt, student loan slavery"... they "have to work" or collect welfare because they had children that weren't planned for ...they are pursuing the propaganda dream they think is their own.... and if they have to fight for male respect, then they are doing something very wrong.

Thank god, you had me worried there for a second. I mean, how anyone can have that mindset you showed, I really do not know.

Yes, because the first 2 lines of your second post for example reeeally aren't sexist comments. *facepalm*

Not forgetting the first 4 words of your first post.


If you can't see how they are sexist, when used in a serious way, then wow. Just wow.

Why not take a moment to step back from your pc, take a deep breathe. 2 lines of second post were extreme sarcasm, thus the reason I admitted to making " kidding comments"? Even if I used say, my second post as an example, as a legitimate comment, using adjectives to describe a group of people's actions, isnt sexist in the sense of demeaning behavior. now calling a woman slut, whore, or making comments like " get back in the kitchen wench" now that would be sexist. I simply used adjectives to illicit a prescribed response.


sexist defined:


male chauvinist: a man with a chauvinistic belief in the inferiority of women


discriminatory on the basis of sex



Comments about balancing check books while driving etc, is not sexist....telling her to get back in her place, now that would be sexist.


Come on RA: keep up with the program now~

My thoughts exactly! I can't tell you how many people have said to me: "I thought you were a guy"!
Silly boys.

It's OK. We don't give these silly comments any credence anyway.

Alright, since everyone seems to have rather strange opinions (especially females), allow me to demonstrate why woman frequent ATS less using what everyone knows is the best source of knowledge on the internet (youtube)...





If there are any armchair feminists on the boards, I do not intend to arm wrestle about facts.

I am just kidding and no harm intended in case my sarcasm was not detected.

In my opinion there is actually quite a lot of female posters on this site from what I have seen.

I've seen many female members on the board (and in the staff). In fact, I'd wager many of our most valuable members are female (the conspiracy chicks come to mind, for example).

In addition, it's difficult to tell the gender of a member online. Many of those you think are guys could easily be women. The avatar or username doesn't always give it away.
