Default Forum Question

Why is there a private women's sub forum that men are not allowed in? I find the existence of such a forum to be discriminatory against us men, and applies a double standard. What if there was a "guys only" sub forum that women weren't allowed in -- don't you think there would be some complaints?

If the gals here want a sub forum that appeals to them, why not set one up one housekeeping hints, receipes, and the importance of keeping their husbands happy? At least that would be useful.

Jeez Tex, you could have a point on this but Im guessing it will get some negative feedback!

No different than The BCC, Black Congressional Caucus! What if someone wanted to start a WCC, would that go over like a lead balloon or what?

Our Campus has all kinds of LGBTQ events and even a parade, Ive wondered what would happen if a bunch of students decided to have a Hetero Parade in the quad?

There is a cultural center on the campus, could students ask for an All White Center? We have Womans Studies, How come no Man Studies?

These things do make you ask, why if were all supposed to be the same in the eyes of society we all dont get the same accesses and other clubby things?

Things that make you go Hmmmmmm....

Default Holy blazing buckets of crap!!

I for one have come to like the female companionship I have here and if they want a private area to do whatever I say have at it!!! Otherwise... I'm with you TexasW... I won't touch this with a 10 foot pole!!

Tex- where else would they talk about you?



Short answer- it gives them a place to talk about things and ask questions they may not be comfortable asking in front of us hairy types. AND I would point out there is a Military thread open only to past and present members of the armed forces.

I like the intrigue of guessing what they are talking about.

For one thing I a m always seeing a lot of you guys talking about boobs and vaginas in the public forum, so why would you now want to take it private?

I would rather see a CZ forum than a womens forum. JMHO
