I'll start off by saying I am in a pissed off mood for reasons that have nothing to do with the topic at hand.
I can't do anything about what really has me angry right now, so I am channeling my anger into this so I can actually feel like I am doing something
productive, even if it doesn't get anywhere. I at least hope the mods take note though.
This thread has come about because in my attempts to diffuse my anger, I went to this
However, a few pictures in to getting caught up I see the pictures From the walking dead about women drivers which reminded me about this thread.
Not long before this post was made mod. Tothetenthpower posted this
Those posts were removed once alerted. We do not allow sexism, but we need members to alert those posts so we can take care of them. Sexism is a two
way street however, and not only the girls of ATS have to deal with it. ~Tenth
on another thread,so of course I alerted this thread. There have been other threads and posts that have been more offensive but it really irked me
just because this seems to be a common mentality here on ATS.
Despite the alert the mods did nothing which I have held a grudge against. Maybe they didn't feel it was against T&C but I certainly felt it was. It
was sexist plain and simple.
I am trying to take a reasonable attitude about the posts in the post a funny picture. While they upset me, they only did so because I was already
angry, and because this seems to be a collective mentality on ATS amongst many of the men. (Not all men) However, its this collective attitude that
upsets me the most. It feels like I am subject to more sexism her on ATS than on websites where I expect it. It also bothers me more here. Due to the
nature of ATS I tend to hold it to a higher standard than I would a site like 4chan. (not that I hold that site to any standards)
I just expect more from ATS. That includes women being sexist towards men as well. If I was to say something sexist here, I expect to be called out on
Well, I feel a bit calmer now than when I started this thread, so rant therapy must be working.
Note to mods: I am not officially complaining about the pics in the pic thread, However, I do feel the mods need to crack down on sexism everywhere on
