I suppose if you had something to say on a subject in the ladies lounge, you could start a thread here on the same subject and say what you like.

Don't have an urge to post on the Ladies Lounge.

I respect their personal space.

Plus, I don't want to get my ass kicked.

It's called following the rules, at least that's how I "resist".

See what rmarshall said.
It was like that when I got here....I swear.

Just for arguments sake, lets say we had an openly gay man on the board, could he post there?

We do have openly gay members.
And no, they can't post there.
They could if they are transgendered, because they would be female.

I read the board all the time but never have a problem not posting there.
If I have a comment that I think is important enough I talk to Jadzia.

I see what you mean there Levvy but Its called the ladies lounge, not the Ladies/Homosexuals lounge.
D'ya reckon that openly lesbian lesbians shouldnt go into the ladies lounge?

Ive been in there only a couple of times, I respect the privacy & if theres something specific I want to know Ill post in General (or wherever)
When I did go in there the one thing I noticed was that everyone in there is SooooOOOoooo nice. Not that the rest of you TFP's are cavepeople. Its just theyre so fucking polite.
Ladies, I tip my hat, kudos.

I tried it once. It was ok. Magpie is right, they are very polite to each other. I thought about PMing one member about a topic they had started. Then I figured if they wanted my opinion they would have posted it on the main board. So, admins, how about a guys only smoking lounge?

and regarding the LL..personally i don't mind if guys go in there, read, maybe learn..just no posting.

but i think having to be silent is hard for some, so avoidance is prooly the easier way then.

I've gone in a couple of times but there isn't anything that interests me. After the first time I've only occassionally been back when I check other areas and don't find anything of interest. Then I go hoping that there is something that will kill a few more minutes of the day at work.

I fight the urge to post by simply not posting. If i read something there that teaches me something then I am a better person for it and hopefully can use that to help better my relationship with my fiance. If I read something don't agree with, I just continue on my way. The rules of the forum say female only posting, so i respect the rules, and everyone involved with tfp.

It seems that there is always a thread about the Ladies Lounge. I'm beginning to wonder what the big deal is.

1) I visit the Ladies Lounge occasionally.
2) It is a chance to get some idea of what interests and perceptions the ladies have that they can't/won't express in a more general forum.
3) The rules say "No posting by men", so I don't post.
4) If there is a comment or thread of interest, I will either start a similar thread elsewhere or PM the lady to comment on it.
5) I always feel like a lurker, so I don't do it often.

I do have to agree with SiN. It's hard to keep silent. But if you can, you might learn something.

If there was something they wanted guy input on, they wouldn't post it in the Ladies' Lounge. I haven't even had an urge to read that board. I've heard if you do post, even in a helpful manner, you have an angry moderator on your hands, which is never a good thing.
