The thing is, I did pick my words wisely. What I said wasn't even offensive at all. It was very mild. And the response was outrageous. Some people just can't handle a woman speaking their mind, unless they agree with them. I'm completely fine with disagreeing. I'm very good at disagreeing with people and still being willing to converse and respect each others difference of opinions. But that doesn't apply to sexism, racism, or the like. Those "opinions" are not respectable. I'm not sure I agree with that, when it comes to this kind of thing. I mean, imagine there were a ton of people on these forums who constantly said stuff about whites being the superior race and how black people are inferior and don't know anything and shouldn't be listened to or taken seriously, etc. I can barely even type those words as a hypothetical example, because it's so disgusting, and I've heard even WORSE things about women that I literally don't even want to type because they're so appalling. And imagine if those posts were consistently reported and never taken down and the posters are still roaming free, in this very thread. Now imagine you're a black person. Would you want to just ignore it and use the community to benefit yourself, and not worry about the bad parts? I certainly wouldnt. I wouldn't want to be a part of a community whose leaders allow that crap. I wouldn't want to support it in any way. And that's how I feel about this. We aren't talking about like people disagreeing on politics or something. And it's not just about "some members." It's the people running the site. If it were just some members, it wouldn't be a problem, because if the people running the site were actually intolerant of this kind of crap, then those few people spreading toxicity would be banned. Or at the very least, their posts would be removed. But more often than not, that doesn't happen. No worries at all! I think you articulated yourself just fine. But I understand not wanting to say more, because it's a difficult subject and you don't want to be misunderstood. No problem. And you have a nice day as well.
