    I need some help from the woman at LPSG. We get countless reports every day of "This is not a woman's issue!" with requests to move it to another forum. Sometimes you are spot on but sometimes it is marginal whether it's appropriate to move it.
    From the viewpoint of the moderators if someone is asking a question specifically towards woman wanting advice or about woman wanting answers
    (Aside from asking if a members dick is big enough) we think it is a woman's issue.
    Seriously I would like to know what are woman's issues that belong in this forum and what are not?
    Thank you in advance for your thoughts and consideration.

    Some ladies seem to use this forum to simply have a complaint about the oddest things. A bitchfest if you will. Sorry ladies, that's what I've seen and read. Complain, complain, complain. That's what blogs are for.

    Well, of course the obvious things like hormones, periods, cramps, pregnancy and childbirth and so on, issues that women have when having sex with a guy (he's too big, he hurts me, I can't orgasm, etc) or sex in general.
    Maybe clothing and shoes, hair, make up, etc :biggrin1:
    I think if it's relationship issues (for example things like: My bf jerks off too much, my bf looks at other chicks, he watches too much porn, he treats me badly, my bf or s.o. does this or that that annoys me, they do belong in the relationship issues forum). What guys like and dislike (two girls together) is not a women's issue in my opinion.
    Those are a few off the top of my head that I can think of right now.

    I guess when I think of the term "women's issues" I think of the female body and life experiences unique to life as a female. Women's health, sexuality, support/advice, contraception, social issues...I could be missing something but that's what I have.

    Great meta post...complaining about complaining? :rolleyes:

    Aside from all topics mentioned above, I tend to agree with the Moderators in that if a male wants to ask a question of the women members to get their insight into a matter that presumably only women would be qualified to answer (other than is he big enough for them) then yes, it belongs in the women's issues forum.

    I'm signing off for the day I have an early call tomorrow. I will look at this and discuss your input with the other moderators so that we can come to a compromise that works well for everyone.
    The reason this came up on top of the fact that there are so many reports from this forum is that I got a PM from a woman who is reluctant to post outside of this forum at the present time.
    Thank you again for your input.

    I'm always happy to answer a guys legitimate question about a female issue. And have done so in the past. I've also used the forum to discuss the pros and cons of getting a total hysterectomy for my case because of ovarian cycts and endometriosis. I gained a ton of useful insight from the other ladies. I have no problem with a guy asking what he can do to make his girl more comfortable during sex or why she hurts so much during her period. That is a true women's issue to me. I do sometimes call out the fakes and slam them down when needed. I don't see this forum devolving into a chastise session on men or as a way to complain as one of our ladies put it. There are enough intelligent women in lpsg to keep that from happening.

    Since I'm not a woman I probably can't answer this question, but to me it's an easy task to define what a 'woman issue' is.

    To me, it's ONLY ISSUES WOMEN AND MEN HAVE REGARDING THE FEMALE BODY.

    Threads that are of the sort "Am I too big?", "My boyfriend does this/that/or don't do this/that or can't do this/that or wants to/don't want to do this/that", "Hey ladies, what do you think about my dick/this sex-position/you want it like this/that/hair/no hair/cock appearance and so on" does not belong there - I think they fit better in the relationship and/or 'sex with a large penis'-forum parts.

    I think... but it's tricky. :eek: The ideal thing I guess would be to let the ladies decide, since this forum-part is dedicated to them?


    So true! :biggrin1:

    Oh no, you didn't!

    Oh for petes sake..really??!!?? Then we, women need to lighten up. You're being bombarded with reports. Some of the ladies have too much time on their hands. Seriously.

    Who cares? If a thread shows up thats sketchy like "Is my penis too big for my girlfriend?" I ignore it (or post a snarky answer!) This isn't rocket science here. It's a big dick site. Geez.

    If it's about women and it's not fiction, it could be a women's issue. If it's a question being asked about any issue of sex with a large penis that does not require one of the people involved to be female, it isn't a women's issue. If it's about general relationship advice that could apply to somebody of either sex, it's not a women's issue. If it's obviously fabricated, it belongs in fiction. If all the replies to the thread are by males, chances are it's either fiction or not a women's issue.

    I am replying extemporaneously. I hope it is useful; no guarantees from moi...

    I agree seaside, what's the big deal about where a thread lands anyway? I'm a woman but I honestly cannot stand women who find it necessary to bitch or complain about every little thing, they should lighten up and just go with the flow. As you pointed out, this is a site dedicated to guys with large penises, the women members in a way are really just guests so who are we to try to dictate this, that or the other? I do not mean to offend anyone with my statement above, if I did I apologize. It's just that in my opinion women who complain, bitch or nitpick every little thing shed a bad light on women in general so it's just a pet peeve of mine... I wish they would lighten up.

    I would think it would be issues that affect women, so if a guy is looking for advice on ways that he can pick up women, that seems rather like a man's issue and not a woman's issue, but it's also a relationship issue, so it could go there. Questions about how to be a better lover seem more appropriate for the Sex with a Large Penis forum, even if it's about heterosexual sex and the person asking the question is a man.

    Questions like whether women prefer one body part over another would seem to affect men more than it does women, so it really doesn't seem to be a woman's issue. Really, that's more of a man's issue if he's concerned about whether he's pleasing to women. Same thing about his penis or his personality. Really, aren't the "I want a woman's opinion" question all really about, "How do I become sexier to women so I can get laid?" which makes them men's issues, not women's issues. Anytime the objective is to obtain answers from women in order to use those answers to get other women in bed, then that's about a man getting himself laid, which is not a women's issue. It's usually pretty obvious when that's the objective in mind.

    I think I've said before that I support the creation of a Ask a Woman forum to eliminate this problem.

    Why on earth would a woman be reluctant to post anywhere except in this forum?

    I'm assuming that a few drama queens are making an issue out of the women's forum and I'd advise the mods to politely tell the chronic "reporters" to find another site that makes them more comfortable. I dont think any changes are necessary. I agree that as women we shouldn't need coddling. I just don't see what the big deal is about what thread goes where.

    How many times are we going to have this discussion, it's been done to death. No matter which threads get reported in the end it's the choice of the moderators to decide whether it gets moved so why even bother to ask for our input. I've given my input many times over the years by reporting threads that I don't think belong here and have been told I am wrong. Obviously now I just get ignored.

    Those women who have a very strong opinion on this section and want to see some positive change have petitioned with no result. As far as I'm aware, Rob never responded to this thread, which raised the idea of a sub-section to "ask women a question".

    http://www.lpsg.org/189200-**-rob-**-petition-to.html

    I also created a petition for change but nothing happened. Other people have made suggestions too. It's rude, disrespectful and disingenuous to have the same conversation over and over again without making any attempt to employ any of the ideas that have already been suggested.

    This section is a joke and has been for many years.

    PS. This is my personal view and I'll be as bothered by it as I'd like to, thanks.

    If the mods don't like people reporting they should turn the reporting function off. Instead they create a passive-aggressive thread asking us why we're reporting all the wrong things. We should be able to read their minds about what they consider is, or isn't, a women's issue.

    My home is wherever reality seems elastic and the
    "i think i look fat in these pants, do i look fat in these pants?"

    i don't think nudey was being passive-aggressive in starting this thread (from my standpoint). i think he was just seeking some answers.

    i'm not sure about what is and isn't a women's issue these days. i try to move or merge all the obvious stuff otherwise i just leave it. it tires me thinking of it.
