GAG is a site where generalizations abound, but is that a bad thing? If so, when do generalizations go from being useful to being harmful/offensive?

Generalizations are only appropriate when sufficient data that is representative of the subject itself has been analyzed - AND if you're willing to explain why the statistical relationship exists. Anyone can make true generalizations but it's more important to know WHY the generalization is valid.0

i chuckle every time someone points out an exception... as if it voids a generalization.3
