I worked in a office with 30 some ladies and one other guy. I have to admit I now understand how annoying it can be to be constantly objectified. It's not it happening that's annoying it's the constancy combined with the lack of any real standards (like I know you're only talking to me like that because I am hotter then Josh). Yeah ladies can be as bad as men that's for sure. Though the first few months do give an ego boost.Unpopular opinion: there is nothing wrong with male only spaces, hobbies, clubs, or interactions.
Take a woman only space and throw a man in there, and you will see their behaviour change as well. They will start the stereotypical sexual signalling behaviours, just the female versions. Same as you see here when a woman shows up, just we display the male version.
There is a good reason to have both male only and female only spaces, as well as the coed ones.
To me though the thing isn't flirting or anything like that being inherently bad or good. The question is if it's appropriate. It becomes a problem when someone refuses to react or respect a lack of interest or return. More of a continuing to throw it in someones face no matter how coldly they react. That's the funny thing how it can be very nice or very uncomfortable or somewhere in between. Like I've heard guys say it's natural to enjoy looking at a beautiful woman, yeah it is but not to the point where you don't care about how the other person feels including how comfortable they feel. I am not saying I always get it right, but at least I try to respect and respond appropriately. That said I doubt many woman join a site like this with the intention of meeting men any more then the other way around.
Though anyone find it funny that only people identifying as men are commenting on this?
