asking that last Q made me think of this one.
when asking a question only meant for girls or only meant for guys, should there be a check box to block guy's from answering or bock girls from answering?
sometimes a Q really does not require answers from one gender at all, its just pointless for them to answer, yet they do anyway.
and it can be annoying because the site tells you there's a new answer and you're hoping its from the gender you wanna hear but then find out its the opposite and now your time has been wasted.
even if those Q's are rare.
what you think? I think there should be an option.

i don't think many people would, since most of you don't even want the option to be a thing in the first place.

I get what you're saying, but I'm going to have to say no. While some questions may be targeted at a specific gender and that gender may generally be able to give a more informative answer from experience, I think that the opposite gender [certain individuals I mean, depending on the situation] can sometimes, even if it's kind of rare, be able to offer more insight to an issue than many from the targeted gender can. I think it varies more by experience and knowledge, who they know, and ability to reason and put one's self in the other gender's shoes [or mind, if you will, lol].
I find myself answering a lot of questions that are intended for guys to respond and give their opinion or give information that may be known primarily by guys, and I think I [usually] do a good job of it. I've been 'one of the guys' for so long that I've absorbed years of unfiltered and uncensored thoughts, learned to understand how guys [in general] think and what drives those thought processes, and often 'think like a guy' in how I reason and interact with men, just out of habit. I'm not saying I'm an expert, but I AM saying that I and some other random women can still offer valuable and informative feedback to a situation that mostly guys would understand or have experience in.2
