I think you are very wrong to make assumptions about this. There is no logic in thinking that other people's silence means you have won your argument . I for one have been reading this thread but am not joining in because I can see that its pointless to argue against such firmly entrenched misogyny.
"Other people's silence " just means that most of us simply think it's pointless to engage in debate with people who hate women & question everything they say, by whatever (fair or foul) means, MonaLeeza.
I have stopped arguing with them. And why not? What's the point?
What else do you do with people who appear to have a pathological hatred of half the human race?
Most of their fervent "arguments" amount to little more than that. Irrational hatred of the "opposite sex".
Any anti-women argument, from whatever source, relevant to the actual thread subject or not, will be produced, non-stop.
Personally, I can't figure out why some women here continue to attempt to try to have a civilized discourse with men who are so obviously determined to be unreasonable & uncivilized.
For the record, I actually like
most of the men I come into contact with, in my everyday dealings in the world out there.
I don't hate or despise them as some sort of enemy "group".
You really have to wonder what causes
such persistent jaundiced thinking from the tiny number of men on this forum who are relentlessly pushing their own obscure agendas.
Most of us just want to get along, as human beings, as best we can.
Why is that so hard for this tiny number of men here to understand & accept that?
