Silly women

Is it my imagination, or are women posting on forums becoming sillier - or just plain, outright stupid?

Previously, I thought it was just a male prerogative.


Maybe the modern virtual world has now bred the 'trollette' to replace the ladette.

They've not become sillier - men have simply evolved to be smarter

But how do you know the sex of all the people posting? Frank Sinatra for example turned out to be a woman, according to what was posted!

Exactly - that was obvious from almost the start.

Likewise you're a silly zwetschgen baumette.

I didn't realise that Frank Sinatra was on EF. What's his... her... user name?

Re: Silly women

No farmers around today? Got to take your testosterone surges out on the women instead? What brought this one? Anything in particular or are we going to have a "why can't men read instructions?" & "why do women have no sense of direction" type day?

No they haven't, they've just convinced themselves of that despite evidence to the contrary.

It takes a lot of skill to troll as successfully as those two have been doing.

It'll be your imagination. In my experience, "stupid" isn't gender specific. "Rude" shouldn't be, either.

Here's hoping your day improves...
