because women have boobs and vaginas and this leads to them living healthy social lives, quite easily making there be no need to be on internet forums...

Wow. I'd really need to hear your tone of voice to know if you are sort of wistfully jealous or a full on misogynist. Which?

To have a slightly more serious answer, one might note that the argumentative nature in itself is a deterrent to female participation. The argumentation (not to mention that females get singled out by virtue of being such a minority on DDO) can get intense, and those who are easily angered can quickly leave. That's not to say that males don't leave for that reason, but it's more prominent with females because of site demographics and an extremely general blanket assertion that females tend to be more emotional...

One could expand for quite a while on the topic.

People on DDO tend to be misogynist for various reasons (religious, low self esteem, etc.) There used to be quite a few female members, but they all leave after a while because of hostility. Airmax, the president, is striving to fix this problem.

Some would say that most women are more interested in things like cooking and clothes and shoes and celebrity gossip and children than topics such as politics, economics, science, philosophy and the other subjects featured on this site.

Some would say that, not me though.

All the 'women' on ddo are fakes, take thett, OreEle, vmpire and Kyro for example. All the older members know they're actually male but everyone else thinks they're female. The same goes for the rest of them.

Oh, pay tell, how does he plan to censor beleifs?

Anyways, this is perhaps the most annoying and feminist woman on DDO, Royal. She tends to spout crazy things, gets offended easily, but ironically dishes it out aswell.

She's a An-Comm(Rofl, I mean hardcore Liberal, but don't tell her that), Religion-hating(unless she can use it to disprove some random fact, or make them into victims to make her opponents look bad), Femanazi.

Good point, sir. Good point. Though I have to add to that: The cooking and cleaning are both done as services provided to men. For free.

Is it racist if I don't find black people attractive?
Also, there are no girls on ze net.

Give it up, Pete. Nobody's buying it.

we require proof to back up any and all claims. Also, since "hotness" is subjective it is very unlikely.
