Please don't just say it's because women are smarter, or more sensitive, etc.
Although I do think they tend not to give one or two word answers, they do explain themselves more fully than a lot of the guys do, speaking of course in general. And they are more open about their feelings, of course, since most guys are taught it's not manly to discuss them publicly..
I dare anyone to give a one or two word answer to this question!
Ok, wise guy She's Silly gave a two word answer, but it doesn't count because it's not grammatically correct! You can't leave out the subject!
Of course the women who are doing this are, for the most part, not going to post messages defending it..it's like when you say, 'a lot of people here are racists.' Very few are going to post messages saying, 'Yes, and I'm one of them.' No, you're going to get the people posting who'll deny they are racists...and for the most part, truthfully.. but what about the silent people?
I don't know. What's the male-female ratio on this site? If there are more women it would ony make logical sense that more women would get the votes. I know you said don't say it's cause women are more sensitive.. But in general women ARE more sensitive, in both their answers they give and in the answers they expect. Guys on here are brutally honest sometimes (which is a good thing). But a girl looking fr answers might not really want brutal honesty, so she chooses the more sensitive answer as a result of that.
I answer questions based on my own interest level and whether or not I can actually say something to help. I never really thought about whether I answer more questions asked by men or women. I do know that I lean toward answering certain types of questions, like guys who've been friend zoned, obsessive women, and how to ask him/her out.
Sometimes we do things unconsciously, unintentionally, and it takes someone like you to point it out.
My question is to you is...why does that bother you?
Im curious to see what my track record is. Off to check my answer stats.
Does this mean that you won't give BA to a woman because it goes against your question?Because I work for my BA's and if that's the case I am striking right now. lol Anyways to answer your question: Some Guys usually are 1. Usually not used to giving acknowledgement and Best Answer is a way of showing that you appreciate the person who gave you the answer you are actually looking for 2. Some guys are just rude but then again so are some females 3. Some Guys probably feel like the answers aren't good for BA or since they got their answer they don't need they can just up and go on to the next one without any care of those who poured out their souls to give them great advice ( you see that behavior in life too). Females on the other hand understand the need for appreciation and since the way you show appreciation on this site is through BA they give it more. 2. Females usually take the time to answer questions properly. So although it seems as if a women might give other women BAs more often, its not biased at all. We just have more practice when it comes to giving advice as opposed to men who just want to make your problem go away.
Some women are sexist they feel comfortable with their own kind. I used to feel comfortable around women but now I don't trust them that is why only five girls are my friends and the rest are guys. I like people who are honest and blunt with me. I will occassionally like the best answer to be a womanès if it is something I want to hear but I try not to be like. I try to be like the people who will giving great definitions and seemed to understand whatever the topic is, I also look at their level and experience and age...
no one is taught its dignified to discuss feelings. some people care, some people dont. men really don't have a corner on the market, where hiding feelings- or better yet, having none at all, is strong, & rational & having feelings,or expressing then, is weak & animalistic.
men, might worry more about what other people think. if you say they talk about their feelings less, tho I don't see it that way.
but EVERYONE has to deal with the pressure of feelings being held in such ill repute. everyone.
As for BA. I never give bA. I am asking a question, wanting to know how people think about something. I'm not asking a question, to show favoritism. I want to hear everyones opinion. there's no point, in which I'm done asking my question. BA, encourages people to stop responding. I do however. give 5 stars for any question, I red. whether its good or bad. if I took time out to read it, then why not help the person out.
I personally never give BA's just because I rarely receive answers to my questions that are even worth while. I know most of the time. I right very thorough answers to people's questions and that is how I get BA's. I don't give BA's to one sentence answers.
