Why do people feel the need to establish threads that either criticize or stereotype a certain gender?
We're all the same regardless of gender.
Anyone can do anything.

Because people want to take out there frustration, especially romantically. It could be anything like a fight with your significant other to just having trouble finding a significant other, even just bad experiences with the opposite sex. So they give into ignorance out of frustration and make vague statements about people as a whole instead of being realistic. That's my perception of it.

Any gender cannot do anything.

There are some cool things only women can do. Women hear at higher frequencies than men. Women can also press their legs flat against a wall and bend down, men cannot (I've heard this also something about lifting something off the floor such as a handkerchief). It has to do with a difference in physiology.

Equally, men can lift more weight than women, have improved reflexes over women, and improved stamina over women.

There's a few more but uh . . . they'd be inappropriate to list here

Other than that you're mostly correct.

While it's true that any gender CAN do almost anything- it's not always the case. Men & Women are fundamentally different in their desires/goals in life. Most women's goals in life revolve around building good relationships with their love, friends, having children, and so on. Meanwhile most men are driven outside of relationships. The reason the most top paid people in the world are men isn't because they're better at it but simply because they want it more.

To recognize that there are differences in the male/female brain and personalities is 1 thing in of itself outside the realm of sexism. To not acknowledge that is just blind ignorance.

I know, I know. xD
The forum's more in regards to the topics I've seen on Crunchyroll such as why do men do this and that.
I know there are things that most people can't do physically but if they push themselves really hard they can always succeed!
The statement is much more about emotions but that is a valid point.

This thread is pretty sexy indeed.


But really it seems that most people make those kinda threads to just call attention to themselves or something of the sort. I consider it a desperate cry for attention and love every time I see one of those threads.

Let me throw this poll into this thread...

Crunchyroll - Which Gender are you?

If you take a look at this poll, and then subtract 25% of the votes from the girls side, because they're probably Guys in Real Life, the amount of girls on this website still towers over the amount of boys on this website (unless for some reason girls just take a bigger liking to polls than boys). And of course, everyone has relationship problems or general questions of curiousity about how the opposite sex might act. That being said, it makes sense that more of the "sexist" threads on this website are posted by women, aimed at men. I mean, it's no big deal, even I reply to them, people just want advice, or they're just curious. What harm's done, y'know?

Now, whenever there's a thread that says, for instance, "Why are all men jerks?" That makes me upset. Not every guy is a jerk, just that one guy who "ruined your life" is a jerk. Don't assault all guys for that one dude's flaws. That's unfair. Those are the kinds of threads I don't like.

Or possibly because women haven't been given the proper chance, because of gender stereotyping.

Yeah, I completely concur with you. Those are the kinds of threads I dislike as well. If the thread is made to categorize all guys as harsh things then it really annoys me. You see it all the time on Facebook and other websites.

Sexist is really base on the readers' perspective. Basically, if you feel it is sexist, it is not necessarily sexist for the rest of us. I do agree that there are some comments that are outrageous and a good majority would agree it is sexist.



I shall start it off:

Why do men cheat on their wives?
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-753936/why-do-men-cheat-on-their-wives

Wives? Sometimes women have more than one husband. [Ignore]

The women cheats too. Phrasing the question in this manner, misleads other to believe only (or all) men cheats.

I'm not remotely defending that thread, and I didn't, in my post in it. (I stated that a better question would have asked why some married people cheat, instead of suggesting that only men do so.)

That said, "Wives" in that sentence makes sense, at least as the question was posed. Men have wives, but it's not implying that men have multiple wives simultaneously. The reverse would ask, "Why do women cheat on their husbands?" for the same reason. Either way, if it's worded that way, it's an unfair question.

Although, I also bear in mind the person who posted that thread, also posted this one. Not objectively sexist, but outrageous and manipulative; and depending on the person it's done to, might be considered as bad or worse than cheating.
