i think it’s more or less impossible to address the subject of women on the internet
if you address that there are some women in here, then you run the risk of being called a creep. if you call someone a creep, then you run the risk of being called a white knight. if you call someone a white knight, then you run an increased risk of being called a creep, etc, etc
there’s pretty much no way out, and all some girl has to do to start the whole thing again is mention that she’s a girl.
this is why they’re working on internet2
