Does anybody else feel like they're intruding?

Not intruding at all!!!

Best way I can think of it is...well..my husband once said there is no girls on the net. I thought he was being pompus until he explained it out. Everyone is the same. Since the long time norm mind set has every thing "masculine," the thought is everyone is "male" or "equal". Think on our language. If we don't know the gender of something, we generally make it male. All languages do the preliminary default that way, be it right or wrong. Going on about being this gender or that gender erodes from the purpose of the posts and gets everyone thinking about gender as opposed to what was said. So therefore, there are no girls on the net.

It took me a long time to grasp what he said, but now that I do, I get it. It doesn't matter if you are male or female. What matters is you are here. What matters is we are all aiming for the same goal. Intrude away...we encourage it! But as Bill so openly put it, you may want to shy away from certain topics, you know, for sanity's sake.

I'm going to chime in "always welcome" and just think of it this way. You guys gets a glimpse into the female mind which doesn't happen often
