A woman and I were just talking about this, lol. I just think it's interesting. Just kind of a funny social observation of a group type thing. I notice the females try to vote up the opinions they agree with to go against the person they don't agree with, especially if it's a guy, or a girl with a view they think is "male." They seem to think rallying around the few people they can agree with will make them right as females or something, or as if voting someone down a bunch of times is gonna make that person wrong, lol. Some people here said it's called hive-mind, or something like that? I've seen guys do the same things too but I don't think they care as much. I never do the downvoting thing, and pretty much the only time I vote anyone up is when I think that person gave a pretty good answer to one of my questions or Takes. I like to show friendliness in that.
Sometimes the females genuinely do vote with a fair, correct balance, but for the most part I generally see it done out of a goofy kind of strength-in-numbers logic. It really just ends up looking like they're bothered by something somebody said, so they have to agree with the people against it too as if it makes a difference, lol.
