i read way too many posts here by men casually talking about women like they are lesser, not worthy of respect, tiny minded, etc etc etc

i came here to share my experience and connect with like minds, not to get infuriated constantly and feel demeaned for being a woman

PSA = public service announcement :peace:

FUBARLady, you are NOT inferior. don't let anyone make you feel otherwise. :hug1:
women are the reason we're all here. no man would ever exist without a woman since women are the ones with the power to give birth. and that's probably why men have, for so many centuries, created this lie of gender inequality. they teach women that they're weak and helpless without them because they are the most valuable humans, so men have turned them into objects like a commodity or valuable resource and it gives them power. it's all BS.

what makes you feel inferior? if you want to talk about it

also want to mention that's why i named myself "give them hell" here--what i mean by it is anyone who wrongs you or tells you that you're less than, well...they're wrong, so give 'em hell! :cool:

I feel inferior to men because they are stronger and more intelligent than women. The worlds strongest woman is way weaker than the worlds strongest man. Men have higher i.qs. than women. Men are great inventors. No woman has ever became a coed world chess champion. Judit Polgar always lost to the best men. Women just don't have the brawn or brain men have.

Men and Women are equals.
It is sad that gender inequality and gender roles are there but one day that gap will be broken down.

The gender pay disparity, sexual harassment...at the end of the day, it comes down to lack of respect. Men and women both deserve to be treated with equal respect - while they may be better at different things, they are still equal overall. We all have to work together to create a future that entails respect for one another regardless of who we are or what we have done.

I'd be careful to label all men as culprits - there are many men that treat women with respect, and have backed the #metoo and other campaigns. I understand that men are the main perpetrators, but it unfairly brands innocent men as sexists when they have been fighting against this issue the whole time.

Much love <3

I was going to recommend this website to others but before I do, I would like to read exactly what was said. Does anyone know where I can find it?

if you want to confirm everything i'm about to write, please do. but i already did, so trust what i'm about to write:
i'm not going to say "you're wrong" and make you feel bad, but everything you just said is skewed by the fact that you've been living in a patriarchal society where the rules are written by men and our understanding of the world is controlled by men.

there is no evidence to suggest that men have higher IQs, in fact quite the opposite. women tend to have higher IQs. women also tend to do better in school.

men are only physically stronger on average because they have more muscle in their body and tend to be larger. that has absolutely nothing to do with their worth or ability. for every strong man you find out there, you are sure to find many more who are not, and likewise, there are many strong women who are far stronger than those men. who cares about that anyway? that has no relevance other than in athletic competition if you're vying for a world's strongest title. :rolleyes:

why is does that seem important to you? because men have deemed it important.
you don't hear anyone saying "women can create life in a way men cannot" because our male controlled society consciously makes it so that we do not value the unique things that ONLY women can do.

i know there have been many great male inventors, as there have been women as well, as in other fields.
but have you considered that the ONLY reason you don't know of these women is not because they can't invent things, but because they are not ALLOWED to do these things in a patriarchal society? do you really think an educated, passionate inventor who happens to be a woman would have been listened to back in Edison's day for example? and going back further, definitely not! it's no coincidence that the women inventors we tend to know about happen to have been socially privileged and usually white. we don't know about these women not because they didn't exist, but because history has been written by (white) men.

as for chess, here's the very first search result i got when i searched online:
Why Men Rank Higher than Women at Chess (It's Not Biological)
basically, it has nothing to do with "women aren't as good as men"--it's simply that there are FAR fewer women participating since it's always been a game women were TOLD they shouldn't participate in.

i'll leave you with a silly little example of these misconceptions on men being better than women.
do you remember the tennis battle of the sexes between billie jean king and bobby riggs? she BEAT riggs in three sets. and that shouldn't be shocking.

the fact is, men are not greater than women. greatness is an individual quality, whether male or female.

i did, so hopefully there's a bit more control over these things.
in light of everything going on in the world right now and in my own life, it's just super triggering to read that kind of stuff in a space that's supposed to feel safe, ya know?

do you mean all the comments i've seen on this messageboard about women being less-than? it's be hard to find them all, there's alot. but actually, it's easy to find them, just find posts about dating women and you're sure to catch a comment like "i respect women, to some degree" <--(actual comment here)

but yeah, please do share the website you recommend!

However regrettable, it makes sense that on a forum as large as this one there are some people who have those attitudes. However much of the moderating team is composed of women so there’s a good chance they will take appropriate action.

I don’t think it’s the majority of posters though. Most people - and I read a lot of posts on here - are sensitive and sensible, if a little beaten up by life’s circumstances. If anything the dating threads attract the few bad apples though.
