Groan. I find this aspect unnerving to say the least. I wish there was some way to have ladies room only. Knowing that guys may be reading my girly posts makes me uncomfortable and alot less likely to post there.

The MENS room is the rest of the site. This was discussed ad nauseum when the Ladies Room was first set up. If you really must ask a MENS room type question then just head down to the local cesspit we have all come to love called the community forum. It`s just like your local bar, ask away in there and I`m sure you`ll be golden.

Dunno what we the management of this site can do about that. We could perhaps make this a private forum for registered usergroup members but that would preclude many members actually finding this forum and participating in it.

I`ve noticed that a few of the guys participate in this forum from time to time and by and large their participation seems to have been welcomed or at least tolerated.

The mods of this forum jump on misbehaviour fairly quickly so the tards are seen off in a timely manner. I think that the guys are genuinely interested in what you girls talk about and that curiousity could be helping guys develop ways to take your needs into consideration.

I find the men who do post aren't writing crap (at least no more crap then the women that post on this forum, and certainly less crap than you find other places on RC.com). I would be very upset if men wern't allow to post here any more. Heck, the latest hot topic of the week in the Ladies Room has been posted by a man ("Is this discrimination?").

I guess I assume that the men that come to this forum will either handle conversations about periods and peeing in a bottle (along with our emotional issues and us trying to feel comfortable in a sport dominated by men) or they'll not read/post to the stuff in here.

As per the original poster....I'm sure the people who post in this forum don't give two figs about having a men's room or not, its just another forum that we can post/read (or ignore). If you're serious go make your suggestion to the admins of the site and explain to them why you want a men's room, else stop trying to be a smart ass.

No, your butt fat makes your butt look fat. Does the harness catch your falls?

Yep.

Then STFU. Belay on.

The whole site is "The Mens Room"... Hang around enough, and you'll find that even some of the females exude more testosterone than some of the men.

What "male oriented issues" could you possibly want to discuss ??? :?


I for one haven't even browsed that forum in over a year, as I'm just not that interested in nor do I have anything to add to any "female related issues". Or, maybe I'm just not lonely enough to browse the "Ladies Room"... It's a chick thing, and last time I looked I had "Two Turntables and a Microphone" in my pants. :wink:

One of the very first posts I ever made, was in the "Ladies Room", and it was taken the wrong way by many of the women here... I was instantly contacted by Philbox, and warned with a deathblow to the head, with a #7 Tricam!

After chatting w/ Phil (as well as the women) and explaining my post, it was allowed to stay and grew into several pages... This was a thread concerning my wife, and "female related issues", that I simply needed to discuss with other women in order to seek information.

The "Ladies Room" should not be restricted from men, but as I quickly discovered (and Phil already pointed out), it is very well protected and guarded by the sysadmins! :idea:

Don't you know if there was a mens room it would be discrimination.

Most of the gyms (and by gyms I mean workout, not climbing) around her have rooms for only women to work out, but I have never seen one with a men only room.

And I could go on about this for days, but I have come to terms with the fact that I am a 27 year old non-minority male so I alway get the short end of the stick.

I think men don't need a room cause we will make due with what ever is handy, and don't care what other men, or women most of the time (unless she is a really hot babe) think about it, and we don't need other men to tell us it is ok, or it will work, cause even if they say do not do it that way, we will try it anyway.

BLUETROUT, for most of us grown-ups we can handle women talking about they're periods, boy trouble, and any other topics that women might put more consideration to. woopdy doo...so you girls talk about crushes, climbing with thongs or implants, I'm not over here jerkin off to your posts. I think the womens forum is helpful in that it shows a perspective of women and how they view climbing, how it fits in they're lives, and also the goals that they have. They have just as much ambition and it would seem childish to lock the womens thread for certain people. I am happy that menstration threads and such are not on the front page but when I click on the women's room, what is there...is there. Otherwise it would be like using a womens bathroom and complaining that there are only stalls. Plus like Phil said...it's highly moderated. That way they keep small dick, porn watchin perverts (who would fumble they're words in front of a real women) from interfering with conversations.
So amen to the women who feed they're passion for climbing, and to the ones that amaze me at my local gym.

At our, like, office, the men's room is down the hall, first door on the left. Please flush, and, like, wash your hands afterwards.

No, your butt fat makes your butt look fat. Does the harness catch your falls?

Can you imagine how boring a Men's Room would be?

First off it would be lonely...Men do not flock in groups to the restroom

Second, you would have the sketchy lurker who is the same guy who pisses at the urinal with BOTH hands against the wall...you know the type I am talking about.

Third, it would get so untidy and none of us would take responsability for cleaning up...

Long live the ladies room...
As for me...that patch of shrubbery looks great to me.

blue trout answered your question perhaps with out realizing it. Many women are "uncomfortable" knowing that men might read some of their questions on the other hand very few men are "uncomfortable" knowing women read their posts regardless of subject matter.

It is perhaps the same reason many (not all) schools or gyms provide private showers for the women while the men's showers are a room with 15 shower heads sticking out of the wall. It is a generalization but women tend to be more modest or reserved about certain things than men.
