  •  There is clearly a misogyny aspect to this (3+ / 0-)

    Like what I experienced at Phanryngula yesterday. Do you really think I would have experienced that kind of venom if I posted as, say Markpoa? Let's not kid ourselves; there's a whole lotta "you-don't-know-what-you're-talking-about-so-shut-up-and-let-the-men-talk" to this.

    •  actually, this goes beyond misogyny - the person (3+ / 0-)

      who came after me was female - younger, but female.

      i think (my opinion) this has to do with the insecurities brought out by the incident and the "need" to be "right" on an issue.

      those "needs" to be the one with the answers or to "know it all" gives those feeling insecure a sense of control over their own lives.

      that's my two cent psychological analysis here... for what it's worth.
