Such people have far different opinions about intimacy and the opposite sex than people in the US. Why not have a space where they could ask questions, and where we could find them without wading through the ''rate me' questions?
Should Gag have an 'international' section for people who aren't from the US?

Well, isn't that the entire fucking point? Different opinions, wide variety, perspective?
What's the point in having a website filled with people you believe will have the same opinions as you?
And, I don't know if It's just me, or if it was intentional, but this comes across as "Let's put those non-Americans somewhere else until they evolve to our higher power and grasp our opinions"
The whole point is to learn from other people, and that means other cultures too.12

No. What a typical US-centric way of thinking. If you need specific races/cultures to answer, just put it in the title! "Indian girls, please help me decipher this!" is clear enough. And calling non-Americans "international" is wrong in the first place...again that's putting the US at the centre of the world (err, website) and everything non-American is "different". And plus often when you ask about a certain nationality, you're asking a culture thing, and we all know there are lots of Americans with "foreign" backgrounds.
The way you're putting it, if ALL people who are not from America are the same, It would make more sense to have an "American" section. If you feel as though we're the only one's who are different lol
Think about it, this "International" section would still have too wide a variety of people. Indians have a different outlook than Canadians. Japanese think differently than Africans. And so on. So if they'll still have to wade through different cultures, all you're asking is for a place where AMERICANS don't have to wade through any other country's opinions.
I'm not bashing this idea completely, since obviously, that's what this site is for: asking questions. I get that you're saying there is a small percentage of Non-Americans who don't want our opinion on anything, which may be true. But that percentage is so small that it wouldn't make sense to have a whole section for a few people. They always have the option of requesting certain nationalities to answer (Chinese Guys: Where do to shop?). And that is a much better way to narrow it down because they would still have to specify which nationality in your supposed "International" section. If they start with something like that, it usually escalates. For example, there are a few questions that request only certain races to answer (Black girls: What shampoo do you use?), or certain genders (Men: What gifts would you like to get for Valentine's day?). After an "International" section, by the same reasoning, we would eventually have a "Black Section" or a "Females Section". Your idea basically creates a "Them Vs. US" mentality in certain people. And though your heart and mind are in the right place with this idea, there are a bunch of people on here who don't have anything to do with their time and will go trolling all the segregated people with racist remarks or sexist comments. Your idea only makes it easier for them.
I'l never understand why, just because someone has a different point of view, they'll go and bash someone who is genuinely looking for other opinions.
So, here is my different opinion. I hope I presented it in a way that'll show you what the others have been rudely (mostly) trying to say :-P

Typical 'Murican behavior, I always knew you hate us back XD XD Seriously, though, I don't see a point in that if Americans can still go to the other nationalities section and vise versa. I guess, all people from all places having to say their opinion even if they're traditions and values are different it still counts as a view and still could sometimes help :)3
I enjoy getting answers from different types of people. It would be boring if everybody who answered my question had similar or the same opinions as me.1
That could be nice, or maybe more info could be posted for answers, such as a person's country of origin, just so we can all really see where different perspectives come from.1
that's a great idea! I didn't even think of that before1
Well, I would like to hear other peoples opinions from around the world and be able to understand what's going on in the different countries so no us Americans need outside opinions as well1
maybe not ... because some people fall into both categories3
Well technically, this website is meant for everyone.. meaning not only us people. So there's really no point in catagorizing different sections of usa since gag has to do that for every country and etc.1
WHY? That's just plain silly.1
That would be neat.1

No. I think it's fine for us all to be lumped together in the sexuality section like some perverted UN. (well maybe less perverted than the Actual UN)1
So a segregated 'Merricuh section with the high-quality bathrooms and a "Everyone else" section where we have to maintain our own police force? I believe it was Wayne himself who quoth: "That's lame-balls!"1
