Why do women post better than men on these boards?

I’m a bloke, and a newbie,and I love these boards - many hours of instruction, harmless amusement and wit.

But I have noticed (in the most general of terms) that the posts by women tend to be different, and I think better than men’s posts.

Women seem to have a closer grasp on fantasy, speak more openly and frankly, and touch on human values better than many men.

The posts that are on “women’s subjects” to my way of thinking have fewer “filler” or “me too” posts, and often keep my interest far beyond what the subject would seem to offer. An example is the thread on the Brazilian approach to pubic hair -

To me this was the very height of funny, sophisticated, truthful and evocative writing. By women, mostly.

Maybe I’m wrong. And possibly I have wrongly assigned gender to pseudonymous correspondents. Perhaps Duck Duck Goose, Eve, FairyChatMom, Green Bean and TubaDiva are men?

Am I wrong? What do others think?


The reason women post better than men is simple.

Women are much more clever, fanciful, intelligent, artistic, and graceful.

Oh no you did not let the cat out of the bag did you? I mean shit man we males have been trying to keep that a secret for a long time. Now your ass is in for some real trouble from the manly men posters on this board oh I so don’t wanna be you. Shit man may as well leave the board your ass is gonna get fried! :wink: Just kidding ya man. It took you how long in life to figure out that the females are smarter? Oh well at least you’ll have some friends on this board… maybe :stuck_out_tongue:

Happy Valentine’s Day. :slight_smile:

It is a well known fact that women develope verbal and written skills at an earlier age and tend to maintain a higher overall degree of ability in general.

Uh-oh!! I hope Mrs. Tiki God doesn’t get on here and see this :wink:

Belated welcome to you, Redboss.

To answer your question, all of those posters are women.

I hope. :smiley:

nuh uh!

I don’t know whether to blush prettily or to readjust myself . . .

As nice as it is to hear women called superior, you just haven’t been reading the right men: Ukulele Ike, Satan, APB9999, the late, great Wally, PLDennison, David B, Crunchy Frog . . . I don’t want to leave anybody out, there are so many veritable Algonquin Round Tablers amongst our menfolk here.

. . . And leave us not forget—not ALL of us gals are Dorothy Parkers (no, I am NOT mentioning any names!).

ugg. andy make post. good post.

scratch scratch

see andy post?


Let us put men and women together
See which one is smarter
Some say man, but I say no
The women got the men like a puppet show

Believe me, it’s the people that say
That the men are leading the women astray
But I say that the women today
Are smarter than the men in every way

That’s right, the women are smarter
That’s right, the women are smarter
That’s right, the women are smarter
The women are smarter than the men today

Little boy sit on the corner and cry
Big man come and he ask him why
Says I can’t do what the big boys do
Man sat down and he cried too

It ain’t me, but the people who say
That the men are leading the women astray
But I say that the women today
Are smarter than the men in every way


Ever since the world began
Woman been imitating the ways of man
But listen cause I’ve got a plan
Give it up, just don’t try to understand


me menfolk make up in quantity what me lack in quality

just look at handy

::Wolverine now vehemently apologizes to handy meaning no disrespect to the numerous quality posts he has contributed to SDMB::

::Wolverine quickly runs away::

It’s because a woman has less trouble thinking like a man than a man has thinking like a woman.

Also remember that guys have to keep switching back and forth between the post they are typing, and the porn they are waiting to load in the other browser window. It’s hard(hehe) to maintain a coherent thought with less than half a brain devoted.

Redboss - I am decidedly female… and I had the mammogram this morning to PROVE it. <ouch> I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m much more comfortable expressing myself in writing. Since I type much slower than I speak, I’m forced to consider each word and distill my natural genius into pithy, scintillating observations. Unfortunately, I encounter too many defective keyboards that twist and distort what I want to say… And before I hijack myself any further, thanks for the kind words.


::snort! snicker!::

Plus, typing with ONE hand is really hard for most guys! :wink:

danke for promoting my Brazilian Bikini Wax thread…it’s informative AND entertaining…and the more hits it gets the better…wait…We DO get paid by the post, right? ::looking around:: What?

Anyway, that’s a sweet compliment you’ve given, even though I wasn’t SPECIFICALLY listed in your list of funny gals.

That’s alright…one snub of my creativity is allowed. Anything over three and I send flatulent weasels to your house.


First of all, don’t make sexcuses…I mean, excuses. Secondly, I find that if I make the two browser windows very narrow, I can have them side by side and watch the hot hot barely legal teens WHILE discussing the ethics of drug legalization. It kills two birds, so to speak.


I can actually type faster with one hand than a handful (pun intended) of my friends can with both hands.

Of course, most of THEM are male:)

Unfortunately, no, else this would be my job.
