Unfortunately, this is the essence of man (as in men not mankind which includes women).

We attack and insult each other a lot. That's normal. We get over it quicker.

When men and women are in a forum together like this, feelings get hurt.

There are different expectations. I'm not really sure how to work this out. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

I think it boils down to farts.  Men will gleefully blast a fart in a friend's face when given the opportunity (it's a given, when one is on a ladder and the other is standing below, for instance).  Men get over this within seconds (You motherf*cker!  Now,here's one for you!), just as they would (as Musicman said) get over an insult fairly quickly. 
 
Trading insults, like trading farts, is a kind of competition.

Not sure I agree with you.  If it's true, then what's Jimbo's excuse for not getting over it quickly?

Honey, I was never under it.
 
I'm over it now & always have been.
 
This is all just sh*ts & giggles to me. Excercise.
 
And my only problem with you is that you somehow think it's just fine & dandy for you to make ugly remarks to me at will, but for some unfathomable reason, you feel it's wrong for me to respond in kind.
 
If you don't want to be spoken to a certain way by me, don't speak to me that way first.

He can't blast Irishman a good fart on-line.  Maybe in the future, Windows will come with Odorama.

   Thor,
     This isn't aimed at Jimbo alone and it isn't on a par with the "trading insults" banter. It is a bizarre hatred of women. Therage makes Jimbo seem like a poser. We're not talking about men's typical toilet humor that while disgusting, is harmless.

Haven't seen too many decent commercial discussions as of late but certainly have seen some pretty heavy-handed statements being made by people that appear to have gone beyond opinion and appear rather full of themselves. It almost appears some are looking for a following (sad).  

 
Also seen a number of really fun folks disappear.

Oh please, Drama Queen. Exactly what "harm" has been done to you or anyone else as a result of anything said by anyone on this forum?????
 
And as for me being a poser, I think the definition of a "poser" would be something more along the lines of a person who implies that they have some sort of professional expertise in a field like Psychology, who diagnoses people they've never even met, with specific personality disorders, in an internet discussion forum. No serious professional would ever even think of doing such a thing, & very likely wouldn't be hanging around here to begin with.
 
But still, I would be interested in having you show me exactly what statements I (or anyone else) have made around here that would give you legitimate cause to assume that we "hate" women. I'd also like to see some convincing evidence that there is, as you claim,  some sort of "mysogynistic trend" creeping into this forum, & which has grown to such  proportions that it merits taking notice of it.
 
Those are just such overly broad & presumptuous claims to make.
 
I will admit that I do find most women to be annoying, though. But hell, most men find women to be annoying, whether they admit it or not. Just as most women find men to be annoying.
 
If men & women didn't annoy the living crap out of one another, they probably wouldn't be interested in each other.
 
It is possible to be annoyed by a certain group or category of people & not "hate" them. I don't "hate" anybody.

A greater truth has not been spoken here. I have to agree with that whole heartedly.


Just last night I hurt my wife by telling her something she did annoyed me. I'm not saying I'm proud of it. I felt bad when I realized it hurt her feelings. However it's not the first time and won't be the last. Yes, I annoy her too. She just never verbalizes it in those words.

     Annoying vs. Hating....hmmmm
 
     Jimbo, you find MOST women annoying? Interesting. I'm beginning to see that MOST women find you more than annoying.
 
     I think being a jerk is annoying, but the male/female ratio is equal. Except on certain threads on CIH. Again, CIH being a miniscule portion of the real world.

Achtung!
 
Everyone...this is all getting really tiring.  It's sucking the life out of the whole forum.  An insult here and there is one thing...but this is getting absurd.  It's seeping from one thread to another.  Normally, I'd never suggest a thread be shut down, but I might have to rethink that.

I was talking to a friend of mine about my job.

Suddenly I realized that I was going way overboard on the minute details. He looked sooo bored and started yawning.

What I find interesting, is that the one tactic you keep resorting to is trying to impugn my manhood by implying women don't like me, which is indicative of how your mind works & how you view male/female relationships.
 
Apparently you're typical of those women who've been convinced over the years that all men are desperate for the company & approval of women.
