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?
