OK so disclaimers, Not all men are misogynists, nor are misogynists necessarily more in evidence on LPSG than anywhere else. However, this being a pretty male dominated site it might be useful to hear some of the female member's opinions about what they feel qualifies as misogynistic behaviour, especially for some of the more "unreconstructed" types around here. And perhaps my surmise is incorrect and female members feel that LPSG is more or indeed less packed with misogynists than RL. I've personally read a fair few posts responding to female members which seemed to be motivated by a fairly anti-woman attitude, and relatively frequently read posts by male members who seem to think that being belittled and putting up with general hostility is the price female members should expect to pay for the honour of membership. There's a good bit of gay male misogyny about too, and considering that many gay men rarely have to confront their attitudes about women it might be useful to describe instances of it so the gay members have an idea what counts as reflexively anti-woman. Do men even realise that they may be thinking in misogynistic ways? Oh and since there are also plenty of examples of male members who seem to have a positive and fair-minded attitude towards women perhaps some indication of what a less "gendered" mentality produces in conversation with women might be of use. Do female members feel like they're more closely scrutinised around here than male members? More liable to be called out, or face hostility from male members for their opinions? Is this a misogynistic thing or a symptom of being far fewer in numbers than male members? Are the presumptions that some male members make about women down right offensive? Personally I think sexists and misogynists abound around here, they're not by any means a majority and there a loads of women friendly types on this site too, but I still relatively frequently want to punch some of the apes who post moronic woman-hating things without even realising that their whole way of thinking about women, root and branch, is fucked the hell up and they should go get re-educated for christ's sake.
