    What's your gender?
    I'm curious about the male:female ratio at ABW. My sense is that this place is overrun by men. So I got to thinking (don't nobody panic) that it would be interesting to find out what the female:male ratio really is.

    You only have two possible answers. I considered adding a third for "undecided" but there are so many smartasses here that it seemed unwise.

    Vote your conscience!

    Membership ratio is really a quite different number than the active poster ratio.

    When watching tv it seems like there are many more genders than just two out there. We need a lot more choices to see whose really here.

    I think it's because women have more going on upstairs while a man's head typically has nothing but crickets making a bunch of noise.

    I thought that it was because women really have nothing of value to say - so they just keep talking to make you think that they do.

    Some women have turned nagging into an art form. There are five basic nags—

    The Single Subject Nag: "Kurt, how about taking out the trash?" A pause. "Kurt, you said you'd take out the trash." Another five minutes later. "What about that trash, Kurt? It's still sitting there."

    The Multi-Nag: "The grass in front of the house looks a mess, Bob, the doorknob is falling off the bedroom door, and the back window is still stuck. When are you going to wash the car and . . ." etc., etc.

    The Beneficial Nag: "Have you taken your pills today, Ray? And stop eating that pizza—it's bad for your cholesterol and weight . . ."

    The Third-Party Nag: "Well, Moira says Shane has already got their BBQ cleaned out and they're having people over tomorrow. Summer will be finished at the rate you're going."

    The Advance Nag: "Well, I hope you're going to watch your drinking tonight, Dale. We don't want a repeat of last year's fiasco."

    How the Victim Feels

    From a male standpoint, nagging is a continual, indirect, negative reminder about the things he hasn't done, or about his shortcomings. It happens mainly at the end of the day when a man needs fire-gazing time.

    The more the nagger nags, the more the victim retreats behind the kind of defensive barriers that drive the nagger crazy. These barriers include newspapers, computers, homework, a gloomy face, amnesia, apparent deafness and TV remote controls. No one likes being on the receiving end of subdued rage, ambiguous messages, self-pity and blame or having guilt continually thrust at them. Everyone avoids the nagger, leaving her alone and feeling resentful. When she starts feeling even more trapped, unrecognized and isolated, the victim may suffer even more.

    The more the nagger nags, the more isolated she becomes.

    The only real outcome from nagging is the destruction of the relationship between the nagger and the victim because the victim feels he has to continually defend himself.

    If men would just behave themselves and do as they're told, we would have no reason to nag.

    I love gender battles!

    This is what happens when a man tries to ask a woman a real simple question:

    Bill: "Is Sue coming over for Christmas?"

    Debbie: "Sue said she'll come depending on how things go with carpet orders which have slowed down because of the economy and Fiona may not come because Andrew has to see a specialist and Nathan has lost his job too so he has to get a new one and Jodi can't get time off work—her boss is so tough!—so Sue said she could come down early and we could go dress shopping for Emma's wedding and I thought that if we put her and Len in the guest bedroom we could ask Ray to arrive early so . . ."

    Bill: "Does that mean 'yes' or 'no'?"

    Debbie: "Well, it also depends on whether Diana's boss Adrian will give her time off work because his car is off the road and she has to . . ." etc., etc. . . .

    Bill thought he had asked a simple question and he would have been happy with a simple answer like "yes" or "no." Instead, he got a multitracked answer involving nine different subjects and eleven people. He feels frustrated and goes outside to water the garden.

    Getting barraged with the passive-aggressive BS that you refer to as "defensive barriers" doesn't improve matters. In fact, she could describe HIS behavior with exactly the words I just quoted.

    The translation is:

    She doesn't know if Sue is coming over or not.

    Woman: "What would you like for dinner, Honey?"

    Man: *Burp* *Fart* *Scratch* *Blank Stare*

    *crickets*

    Well ABW Women - I've enjoyed baiting you , playing with you, and just making you mad in general.

    It's been fun.

    Have a nice day .

    PS - I really like women. I don't know what we would do without them.
