Sexism.

You know in ST it's become alarmingly prevalent that most people just have no respect for women. After numerous thread of "I may have got my gf pregnant" I see nothing but responses making fun of abortion and telling the guy to "punch her in the ovaries." I think this needs to be tightened up a bit as far as bans go. I don't really feel like we should allow users to get away with that, it really makes the site look bad when just a total and blatant lack of respect is shown towards women. If racism is a bannable offense, why isn't sexism?

Just my two cents.

Lack of respect towards women in ST is only a small part of whats wrong with it. A very small part.


You seem like the type that would enjoy OSST.
Go there.

Maturity and ST were never meant to go hand in hand. There is nothing you or the mods can do that will cause the hundreds of 13 year olds to grow up.

i have to agree. the sexism in st is offensive and bad for the site. the responses to your suggestion are also whats wrong with st,"if you don't like it,leave". this attitude and the offensive behavior is is no way to help this site grow.

Well it's not going to change so.... get used to it?

ST is beyond fixing. The only way would be to completely get rid of small talk, but the staff here wouldn't dare do that.
The 1,000 or so regular members would flood the other sections. Just report the problem posts, and wait for them to be punished. Like eforce said, there is nothing you or the mods can do that will cause hundreds of 13 year olds to grow up.

Judging sexism is a matter of opinion.

wow none of you people get it. with you and your post-modern views its no wonder the world is going to $*#&. some people reading this agree that sexism and this blatant disregard for the life of a child is wrong, yet they will not do anything because it's what they believe. other people think it is funny and ok to be sexist because of their lack of moral values. moderators seriously need to start banning people for sexism and others for their blatant disregard on life.

You have a great idea and are also making a point and all you other people that think its funny and an opinion you make no sense Because racism can also be an opinion and some times it is also funny but we cant do it because we are making fun of other races or beliefs but when people are being sexist they are making fun of the other sex/beliefs.

I never said that I approve of it, just that ST is the place where maturity is forgotten.

There may very well be plenty of smart-*** comments about pregnancy and other serious matters but believe me they won't be saying "wrap it before you tap it" when it happens to them.

The way most people see ST, it's a place to have fun and let loose. Then they can argue over infractions for recreation. Don't let yourself get so worked up over immature comments in an online paintball forum's off topic section.

ST wasn't always like this. It's a shame it has come to what it is.

Make me a mod and all will be ok.

as a helpful hint, reporting all of the offensive posts, does help, mods in small talk have enormous numbers of reported posts to go through literally by the minute, however reporting them helps the mods go where it is needed. and posts that are offensive are taken care of as best the mods can. Remember though, as you stated, the sheer number of people in small talk means it takes time to get through all of the posts and get them taken care of.
