Don't worry, to prove your point a lady should be by shortly to make a comment on this "Guys Only" post.

Discipline isn't a war to be won, but rather a battle to be fought daily.

I don’t think most of them do it intentionally. I think they post not realizing it is in the guys only room. I posted in the women’s only room once on accident. It was a thread on boobs and bra sizes and I made a comment trying to be funny and then I realized I shouldn’t be in that thread.

We ARE a rare bred on here. Look how infrequently men post in this forum.

From what I’ve see we men don’t tend to add a lot to to the message boards.

I just found this guys only section today while scrolling down the main forums page and seeing girls room. I also posted in a topic about saggy boobs to be funny. Pretty sure it was in the sleeve section but F me if it wasn't now I gotta go search for it, damn.....

Anyway good to see we have a "guys room" where woman "don't" read our embarrassing questions or comments. LOL Welcome gents, hope to read more and many of your comments.

I think a lot of the "women in the men's room" posts are due to the App being crap and not telling you *AT ALL* where you are and where you are posting.

Or they just don't care that this is a Men's only room... Seen that a few times,
But post in the Women's only room and watch them lose their collective minds.

Considering how infrequently men seem to post in the Gals Room and how frequently women show up here to add their two cents, I'd say they just don't care.

Alex, is there a way to add a "sex" or "gender" (touchy these days I understand) option on the Account Settings / Profile and make each of the rooms blocked for the opposite sex? This way men and women can feel just a bit more comfortable with the Sex/Gender specific questions? I mean, there isn't anything stopping anyone from viewing posts or commenting on either forum. Doesn't seem like it would be a hard addition to make from a website/programming point of view.

I've been wondering the same thing.

Good suggestion. We had this back in the day. I will see what we can do to add it back.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
