By which I mean, is it

-full of immature idiots, misogynists and trolls on the male side

-yet biased towards women, even when the poster is quite immature, arrogant/entitled and narcissistic?

There seems to be an extraordinary amount of petty haughty attitudes and immaturity on this forum. Ironically for an intellectual database, a lot of shallow mindsets too. But then that could be because I'm an older member (not more mature lol)

Discuss.

Intellectual database? You're having a laugh, right? Participation in some level of education does not make you intellectual. It's 'The Student Room'. It's full of students, of varying ages, basically kids. We're young folk, we're not meant to have everything right. It's a cocktail shaker of opinions, most in their infancy, most of which are green and liable to change. Plus, this is the Internet - Anonymity breeds ass holes.

can we not generalise a forum based on a few individuals of that forum please. Just because some members have sexist views it doesn't mean the whole community is sexist please drop the prejudices please

If this were an intellectual database it would sound like something you could write on your CV! It's not, it's a big forum with a diverse collection of opinions, some of which you will agree with and others which you most certainly will not. The world also works in this way except you don't tend to talk to people who hold opinions you don't agree with as much as you would on here.

Because it's plainly obvious that there is nothing intrinsic to womanhood that makes them incapable of doing things which men can do. It's just like there aren't really people who believe the world is flat - of course there are some, ​but no considerable number.

Sexism is a belief not an action in itself. Anybody can be sexist in this day and age :yep:
