true, though there's still friction between male and female posters from time to time>/co/
might also be true, it's also one of the big boards that have been the most resistant to /pol/ shitposting>/y/ is mostly women
I think they've been "losing territory" (so to speak) to hostile gay men in the past few years, same on /cm/, or so I've heard.>>13515>if they even show up (I doubt it)
I also don't think that they'd show up, but your concern is still valid.
But, I also don't know what the nature of such a board would be. Would it be like /lounge/, or would politics be allowed? I somehow feel that a board for women on here would be pointless, since we already have a bunch of boards that cover a wide range of topics, so what would there be left to discuss in it? Whatever it is, most of it could be discussed on the female-oriented imageboards, though it's almost guaranteed that won't get opinions from other leftists, which is why we like it here.
Another imageboard, female-oriented (but not female-exclusive), and inspired by leftypol but not specifically political, would be more appropriate since the userbase would be different (even if it overlapped with leftypol's).>>13518>Politics is similarly put to one thread on the board. This cuts the pol out of the idpol for most of the board.>but I hate the name /girltalk/ for some reason so don't do that lol.
agreed>Men are put to one thread on the board, banned from posting out of it on the board
disagreed, most posters on here would have no intention to annoy us, so this doesn't seem necessary.>>13519>If you want to talk with other girls so much make a dedicated thread on siberia,
Being the second most active and the "random" board, there's too many shitters (native and non-native to the site) to simply ignore them, and not enough of us. There are also no rules to stop them, although the board is better now than it used to be. It's not only that, but many of the topics in /siberia/ are discussed from a purely male perspective. Understandably, it gets tiring/boring after a while, so every now and then, some of us go to other places when we want to talk about certain stuff. The thing is that those places are full of awful people with garbage politics due to the nature of imageboards. I would like something that's more "leftypol but for women" like >>13520
said, not just for me but for others too, so that they don't have to settle for something like CC (where I've seen many users complain about it, in part due to it being a TERF circlejerk or officially not allowing the discussion of politics, and wishing there was a better imageboard for women).>>13523
While it's true that there's a considerable amount of female users there, 4chan still has a lot more male posters, and not all of them tolerate or even understand the idea of women posting anonymously among them. Moreover, there's a strong /pol/ influence on the site, especially the bigger boards, which unsurprisingly puts many female posters off. Outside of /cgl/ and a few other boards, the only places that are consistently more or less female-friendly are those small but cancerous generals where everyone is an avatarfag and knows each other (though not always).
It's also annoying to always be assumed to be male and expected to not complain about it, you know? You might think it doesn't matter, but put yourself in our shoes. It's like not being able to say you're Mexican or black because the majority is American and white. So we consider the "attention whore" argument to be just a lazy and outdated excuse, hence cases like /girltalk/ >>13520
I ended up reclecting on what >>>/siberia/156956
said, in that separating ourselves from male imageboard users could
be a good thing for female ones. I'd like to test that theory.>>13526>Not so much a need, as much as I believe it could be a nice place
This>it's more likely to attract a new userbase than many other board concepts are.
Like I've already said elsewhere, female imageboard users going to CC and being indoctrinated by TERFs, radlibs, misandrists, etc. even more into idpol and further away from leftism is something I would like to prevent as much as possible. Not that I can do much, but at least I've tried to offer /edu/ as an alternative to someone looking for a place to discuss a topic without /pol/ shitters ruining it.
