Re: Sexist Forum?

I'm new so I haven't gotten into the community feel yet, but I can say as much, that regardless of gender it seems to be easy to "come in from the cold" (i.e. being new to everyone, and the topic) in this forum. I've been met with lots of respect and been helped by truely helpful people. Even if I'm a newbie and my questions might be very "blue eyed".

I sincerly doubt that people has cared about my gender, but they have been answering my questions. I haven't gotten any more posts than I expected. It seems that posts with pictures of half naked women gets alot more posts

I believe I am noticing a sexist trend in this NG. To wit, when a
female (or someone with a feminine pen) posts a message,
interesting or not, she ends up with a flood of replies, most of
which are overly elaborate. On the other hand, when a male posts,
unless the question is of great interest, it goes largely
unnoticed. Is this a "Damsel in Distress" syndrome, or are my
observations without merit?
