Why do so many women here generalize??

When asking a question about one group of men... do they assume that all men are like theirs?? Lazy? Stupid? Porn addicted?

  • Hey! Quit generalizing! ;) Blanket statements - pet peeves of mine. It IS a little sad that the worst is assumed so frequently on here.

  • generalizations come from the truth .... most men are like that, maybe not all but most.

  • Southernbelletx that's exactly what I thought. It's too hard, longwinded and confusing when you try to be too specific. So it's easier to generalize. Usually the people that have a similar situation are the ones who understand and answer the question. There are far too many unique backgrounds on this website and we really can't be too particular at pick at others' because then it gets difficult.

  • You're generalizing dork! :) I don't think that's the assumption, although I do think the posters assume the people responding will be in similar situations to their own.

  • Uhhh my guess is because most men ARE lazy, stupid porn addicts?!!
