I'm a guy, if you haven't noticed from the blue anon, and I have had my respect and love of women greatly diminished by women posting here on G@G.
Nearly everything I post is twisted around, taken personally, or is made out to be some kind of 'woman-hating' agenda, which couldn't be further from the truth.
I was raised by a single mother who was a feminist, so I was brought up to respect women completely. I've been married for half my life to the same woman, and I have always viewed women as my equal.
But the women that come to this site, and the things they say, have greatly diminished my respect for women in general. Everything seems to be about them - and I mean everything. And not in the 'selfish' way, but in the 'omg you said one word of 1k words and that was sexist' or 'you're a rapist apologist because you don't think annoying married men are rapists'.
Am I the only guy that has had his view of women diminished?
What about you ladies? Has G@G and those that post on G@G brought down your view of men?
- Man: Yes, my views of women have decreasedVote A
- Man: No, they haven'tVote B
- Woman: Yes, my views of men have decreasedVote C
- Woman: No, they haven'tVote D
But again, this is a trend I see everywhere - not just here.

Actually it is the reverse! I empathise with men much more since I joined G@G. It's difficult to see things through a male perspective, especially when men are told to behave strong, regardless of how they feel on the inside. This site opened my eyes up to the struggles men face on an every day basis, and thus I have grown to appreciate them more.
Also I have lived my whole life in Asia (though in several countries,) and the dynamics between men and women are a whole lot different here. They range from being patriarchal and chavaunistic (like in the Middle East and India) to pretty egalitarian (like in Singapore.) I found the dynamics on this site however to be quite tilted in the favour of women. I find women here (not all, but many) to be6

I think women are a little more promiscuous than what I had initially thought and I also learned some disheartening things about dating dynamics but overall Im glad I found this site.
There are a few women here who are really condescending and emotionally manipulative in the way they go about arguing but I have also seen a lot of genuinely nice women in this site. I dont think its fair to base my opinion of all women on the small handful of bitchy women on this site.1
