sure, that makes sense. but people on here are "selling" the site as woman-friendly. and i would say it is not the case in every woman's opinion. some women might feel welcome there, but they may have different standards or ideas of what is acceptable.

you said before that you have never gone into the women's forum, though.

I'm NOT going to claim that site is women friendly but there are some women there & I have not seen them get attacked for responding on male post.

I accidentally clicked on the Women's section when I meant to go to Adult a couple times after I said I never been there; this was a couple times in the last month or so. I figured out I was in wrong section after I read a couple of topics

You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

i agree - the women who post there have not been attacked at all from what i saw.

The place looks nice, I've looked at some of the threads and they seem to be reasonable. I haven't seen woman bashing there.

I am offended by this, you are indirectly accusing me and there other users who are promoting this forum of being manipulative and liars, and we're trying to "sell" the forum as woman-friendly, as if we are leading women to some 'trap'.

Look, if you have some kind of allergy against excessive testosterone, fine, don't join the men's forum, I bet that no one is forcing you to join it. Everyone is welcomed there, regardless of age and gender but you're not obliged to like it.


Stop spreading such false accusations and false publicity about us and about this forum. Let the users here browse it and form their own judgement.

Stop spreading such false accusations and false publicity about us and about this forum. Let the users here browse it and form their own judgement.

i would say that you are doing the same thing, with false publicity. the way you were promoting the forum was not how i perceived it, so i also posted my opinion. people can agree or disagree with MY opinion, just like they can agree or disagree with YOUR opinion.

i used the word "selling" but i could replace it with "promoting" if you like. i am not bothered by either word. i have noticed that you have taken the time and energy to "promote" that forum here on WP. does selling involve a trap? "selling" seemed like the best possible word as i noticed that you (and others) have taken many opportunities to suggest that people go over to that site. but i can say "promote" instead.

i wouldn't have posted my impression except that you gave your impression first. if you would like people to avoid discussing that other forum then maybe stop bringing it up. i would not have introduced the topic, myself, as i have nothing invested in whether or not people go there, so it really doesn't matter to me. but maybe the truth of what the forum is really like lies in the middle somewhere, in between our perspectives.

of course nobody is obliged to like it, and i do not recall saying anything of the sort***. and i didn't say anyone was unwelcome there, just that i didn't like some particular comments being considered acceptable (which, surprise! happened to be about women), and that i didn't like the treatment of some specific people on there.

i also suggested that people could form their own opinions about it***


***you might want to actually go back and read what i wrote. it will help to prevent misinterpretation.

I can't win a debate where "proof" (proof of the forum's hostility against women or any particular member) isn't presented.

You're talking in puzzles and without names.

Once you provide links and names and events proving your claims, I ll debate with you again about this matter.

My current partner has excessive testosterone due to a health condition (polycystic ovary syndrome). In all honesty your point is moot.

why do you want to debate about it? either way, we have now effectively driven a larger amount of traffic to the site while people go and look for whatever it was that i was talking about. do i get any commission payments for that? :D
