The Ladies Lounge!

How come there's a Ladies Lounge but not a Men's Room?

Discuss.

Because the majority of members here are men, as is the majority of the world interested in cars/bikes/trucks.
It's a place they can go to get other women's specific thoughts/opinions/advice. Plus they don't have to deal with the leg-humping. Not that it happens often here, but it's a good place to avoid it.

Because the ladies won't pee all over the walls like some of you stud muffins would if we had our own room.

Next question, please.

Because everyone would write on the wall about the things I do for little to no money and that would damage my self esteem :(

Hey, if the Ladies want their own section of the playground go for it. It's a freakin' website. Big deal.

Equality is like 100% pure gold, it doesn't exist.

This website is a business and it will be run as such. In any mostly male dominated anything females are usually given their own class.

Here it's just for comfort factor. Guys aren't banned from "The Ladies Lounge" however it still serves some important purposes.

#1. It lets people browsing (trolling) the forums that not only are there femaale users, but there are enough to warrant their own section
#2. They have a place where they can talk and know they will get the attention of other female users.
#3. It lets us guys peer deep into the inner female psyche and hope to better understand women.

Okay well maybe #3 was kind of BS :P

Equality can never really exist because by nature we aren't equal. If enough people want special treatment, and it isn't hurting anyone else? Let them have it.

The only time anyone should be concerened about "Equality" is when someone else is being hurt or impared.

If women want equality, I say they lack ambition.

I won a debate about women being equal to men and I was on the negative side of that debate...


They're not equal to men, but far superior...

Higher pain threshold, greater intellect, longer life span are just three of the proven areas I can remember that came up in our debate...

As to having their own forum, it is also proven that women have been excluded or held back in just about every male dominated area. There is truly no reason to keep this practise up in this day and age, having a forum for women gives them the ability to have a "Safe" place to converse without male harassment. If a guy goes in and stirs the pot, he will get shut down in there quite quickly. Personally, I think it should be a locked forum for just women....

I also think the moderators should keep an eye on this discussion incase it gets out of hand.

To me it's always seemed that men and women are no greater or less than each other. Just different in a some aspects. On average (there's always exceptions) women are better at some things and men at others. For example, a female friend of mine has been doing her best to keep me organized for school and stuff. And I've been doing my best to keep her from destroying her clutch in her new car (it's her first manual). Where I normally never complain about things that bug me, she has no problem with raising hell. And turns out, raising hell isn't a bad thing usually.

I disagree, because the ladies seem to come up with the many of the best general interest topics on the whole site!

I exercise a great deal of self-restraint about posting in their place though, and limit it to times when I have a specific bit of factual information immediately germane to their discussion. Otherwise I just read...

Well...let's see.....

So we can be girlie in a specific place and not feminize the whole board???

So the shy ladies or timid women can come in there and find support and not made to feel stupid or inadequate?

So we can discuss other topics like how to look good with helmet hair or what's the best lipstick to wear when riding?? :mrgreen:
