The people on this site are always nice, respectful, nonjudgmental. While people you meet on the streets, at work, etc. can be complete jerks. Why do you think this is?

It depends on how you phrase things and the questions you ask. If you ask stupid stuff, people will react accordingly. Basically, the site kinda mirrors what you do. I am not always nice either, but most of the time I am. Name-calling is useless, so I tend to avoid resorting to that too. I would be lying if I didn't admit that I can be pretty judgmental when people's behavior counteracts with my core values and morality, though.
Sometimes there are a few fem-anons who ask some weird question like is it okay if I am a single mother with 3 children at the age of 17 and then you're like dude, that is really not cool if you can't provide financial security and then they act as if you questioned their sanity and life and everything and they lash out on you like nothing else because what they looked for is affirmation, not actually valid opinions. They for example certainly aren't nice, they indeed tend to be kinda crazy. Like the girl who was asking "how to navigate as a dignified virgin in a sex-saturated society", and @MaskedSanity or @MaskOfInsanity (one of them) gave totally reasonable responses that disagreed with that kind of view, and it is hard to imagine the bitching that ensued, haha.
But yeah, I would say the site is fairly reasonable. People react harshly only to harshness.3
