I just don't understand it. Men and women were designed to compliment each other. We're supposed to be the puzzle piece that completes the picture. Since joining this website I've seen nothing but hate spewing from both sides of the fence. Why?
Men are beautiful, and wonderful, and amazing. I would expect any heterosexual woman to feel the same and any heterosexual man to view women that way. It seems like the girls on here go all lezzie to protect a woman simply because she's a woman. The women on here act like men are the devil and their sole purpose is to hold them down. And the men on here act like women want to destroy everything they've built.
Why do you guys hate each other so damn much?

Too many people want to blame others for their failures instead of blaming themselves. I remember a time when I used to do this myself.
Often this is purely out of ignorance - they THINK they understand the other sex (because they ASSUME that the opposite sex wants what they want and thinks the way they think) but they're completely wrong because they've never learned the wants and perspectives of the opposite sex. But some people refuse to learn, or refuse to accept, these perspectives - refusing to believe that those perspectives aren't the same as their own. And when you START with such a fundamental misunderstanding, you're bound to fail, and if you fail enough, and never make a legitimate effort to figure out WHY, you usually become bitter.
I completely agree that men and women can and should compliment each other. That doesn't mean we are the SAME, it means their strengths compliment our weaknesses and vice versa.
But if people are having trouble attracting a mate, they usually need to look in the mirror and that's where they'll find the person responsible. They need to work on THEMSELVES, and improving the things about themselves that the opposite sex finds value in.5

I don't agree with your assessment. I've seen some ugliness but that can be found anywhere on the internet so GAG isn't unusual in that. I chuck it up to great deal of immaturity combined with anonymity. People often think it's ok to spew out all kinds of ugliness when they aren't held directly accountable for their words. What they don't realize is the face they show on the internet is more authentic than what they show in real life. We are all responsible for our words in any medium.
I am always honest, matter of fact, and neutral when I post on GAG. Rarely do I get any negative feedback. It did happen a few nights ago though but I didn't take it personally. It was obvious to me the kid I was conversing with took something completely the wrong way.2
