Quote from aurora1979
See, this is the fantasy we are trying to explain to you guys.
No one is saying sexisim is ok. No one is saying you should have to sit and listen to it.
We are telling you, you can NOT ban every "nasty" person from the internet. Its a fact of modern day life. Deal with it.
A. avoid the situation. Don't tell people your sex and don't engage in conversation with twats.
B. heckle back and have a go at them. Only works if you are think skinned and can deal with it.
C. have a fit and try to change the world getting yourself upset and frustrated at the same time.
This is what I've been trying to say. Don't announce that you're a girl on the internet. If you do, you're just asking for it.
I've said it before, I'll say it again: the internet is not a nice place. If you can't deal with it, get the **** out.
