Some people have complained that, for the reason they are female, they garner some sort of special respect. I agree. However, I feel that my trust is well-founded. In my opinion, ladies are generally more respectful, mature, and less likely to be asses. So, then, it would be reasonable to treat them differently, whether they are attractive or not.

Am I off-base in this?

Yes.

There really isn't more that needs to be said. I know plenty of women that make even the most pig-headed of men look like gentlemen.

I agree with Brad. People flirt with some of the girls here in hopes of a few pictures in TEZ.

All the girls at INTL seem to get more attention than the guys (just look at the karma for any girl relative to that of a guy who's time spent here is about the same). I think it's because the girls here are open about sex and crap like that, and if they're anywhere near decent looking, revered as goddesses of the internet because omg we know how to go online. kekeke u give soj???

If enough women forummers came to INTL, a female Boo would surface eventually.

I do agree, however, that women are generally much more respectful and intelligent posters.

I think you, peach, and I are the only women who actually have karma ratios we deserve.

But I do agree that having a vagina on this site gives you magical powers. However, the females on the site tend to offer good advice and contribute insightful things like the male forummers. For the most part, the females just don't immerse themselves in pursuing "the funny" as much as the males do.

I didnt know until just now that Skye is in fact, a woman.

The question raised by this thread is to relative to get any real answers. There is to many factors to consider.

I guess if you wanted to look at as to why I would treat the females different, its because Im deafly afraid of them.
This extends beyond the internet and plays a role in my day-to-day life. I dont really talk to girls that often. Not because Im a dweeb or am shy, it just...makes me anxious for some reason.

Now that I think about it, I dont really talk to that many people at all.

I totally disagree. Its simple psychology. As men on a general basis the one thing we want more than anything is sex. We are nicer to women, more likely to laugh at their jokes, more likely to be helpful, and give them stuff because one day we would like to get ahold of that pussy, even on the internet even though realistically we probably don't have a snowball's chance in hell. We do this even if we don't realize it. I would bet the farm that a couple of females here would have salamando type karma if they were male.

This has been proven to some extent in online RPGS. People that didn't get groups as one character, rolled a female character and got groups plus a lot of free stuff from the exact same people that ignored them while they were on their other toon. Both times they were almost strangers to these people. I know people that have tried this. Also when I was playing DAOC, for the longest time my best friend ingame was a girl. We used to do everything together, but then she turned into an attention whore cause she kept getting powerleveling, free items etc. because "OMFG OMGZ OMG A GURL LOLZ LOLZ, hey sweetie how are you i'm a serial-killer :)". She considered these people to be really nice and friendly, although myself and quite a few other people considered them to be total jackasses, based on the way they acted around us.

Usually I only treat girls better if I'm attracted to them, and I've only been attracted to a couple girls here, so I dont give them too much special treatment.

I suppose when I first came here 2 years ago, I had not that much previous contact with girls, so I somewhat worshiped the ground they walked on. I suppose when you realise they are just posters too, they're not that special anymore.

That's about when I met nelly, she was the village belle.
I was just a panderer, but I loved that girl like hell.

Then along came a city slicker, all finely dressed and gay.
Before I knew it, the son of a bitch stole my nelly away.

So I'm just resting my bones a while, and then I'll be on my way.

The personalities of women vary just as much as those of men.

The variance is the same range pretty much, they are human too. However, I will say that women seem to be a bit more sociable, respectable and restrained amongst themselves
Women act differently with other women than they do with men. This is a fact, however, it is also true of men.

Men and women are different on the whole, no doubt, but within our 'ranges' the variance is just as high for both.
Then again, it is utterly impossible to classify any human being based on something so broad as gender, race, age or any related category.

Any single human being has the potential to behave in any way they see fit, regardless of circumstances or even feasibility.

There aren't many females here who post on a regular basis. It's a male majority here.

However, the ones who are here deserve some of the credit they get because they *do* post on a regular basis and aren't all posting on a retarded level. At least, not all the time. It should be appreciated that we don't sit around posting "lol u guys rock" all the time.

I think you're wrong.

Or rather, I think you're misplacing the real problem.

There are over a dozen forummers I could name who recieve more respect than they deserve, and although some of them include the female INTLers in question, most don't. It's part and parcel of forumming. Some people will inherently have some sort of X-Factor which precludes their recieving respect they clearly don't deserve. In some cases here, it has to do with past deeds which, while no longer being representative of their personalities or contributions, hang over them like a Halo, attracting to them respect. For others, it's a cycle. A few names of relative import back them, so your never named, but always mentioned horde of wagon-hoppers begin latching on for some Freudesque reason or another.

Whatever the reason, it's the base issue with forum "popularity". Something everyone complains about, but very few actually think through to the conclusion.

To me, the sooner forummers begin realizing the real issue has more to do with extraneous factors than it does genetalia, the better.

I think guys just generally like females better than males.

On a side note. I think females are much kinder than males. Males are extremely judgemental. Opposed to women who are less likely to be prejudice.

Actually, it's exactly the opposite. Females are MUCH more prejudiced than guys when it comes to everything, actually.
Most of the guys I know don't really care, and the girls do...a lot.
