I had a question for a long time and since you guys brought up that topic here it is: are posters on the bulge thread mainly gay?
I am a straight woman and I could never understand that topic.

And on topic: I have a feeling the average age on TF is lower than on MTF. That high school feeling might not be that far away from the truth and people in school tend to waste more time on the internet. Also, that comment that mentioned posting in between cooking and cleaning. I would word it differently, but think about it a little bit. You have to do something while you wait for the food to be baked. I used to work for this company who owned several women forums. It's eye opening.

One more thing: don't kid yourself that men tend to be more anti-gay than women. The main difference is that women know a little bit better when to shut up.
Yes, indeed. Apparently generalized insults against women and gay men are wrong/discriminatory, while general bashing of straight men is alright? I guess in this poster's very peculiar logic discrimination is alright as long as it's against a group of people he's prejudiced against

About the bulge thread, I have no idea. Never visited it, since I'm a straight man and therefore have no interest whatsoever in male player bulges . I would assume that most posters there are either gay men or (straight) women though, of course.

Poor straight men, they are so discriminated against in every walk of life, it must be so hard to be a straight guy in the world today

Re: How come Tennisforum has more activity than MTF?

Tennisforum has been around for over 10 years longer, first as Sanex and then Wtaworld, so all in all Menstennisforums is doing pretty well, considering that it was actually born from a then small Wtaworld subforum that grew much too fast... this is actually commmon knowledge, but it did not fit Helen Shivers' agenda , who was trying to take a dig at the ATP...

It is

Seriously though, that's not the point. I am fully aware that gay men (and to a lesser extent women) have it much, much harder in that regard. But it's still very hypocritical that a poster complaining that MTF discriminates against gay men then goes on his own generalizing tirade against straight men. Not only will that not gain him any sympathy, but it removes any credibility his complaint could possibly have.

Just to be clear, this is not an issue for me at all: I don't respect people more or less depending on their sexual orientation or gender, it is not relevant for me at all. I was merely pointing out the sheer hypocrisy of that poster.

Re: How come Tennisforum has more activity than MTF?

I used to post a ton at Wtaworld/Tennisforum but over the last 4 years I have posted only a few dozen times and migrated here where I post sporadically. I did enjoy the player subforums a lot at Tennisforum such as the Myskina, Golovin and Dementieva ones where I don't think I have ever ventured into the player forums here.

Sour grapes about the fact that Kim was far better than Williams sisters when she stopped choking.

The USO 2009, Miami 2010 Final and USO 2010 SF were for any Kim fan.

Blurry vision? If that's not a racial slur against my race, then I don't know what is.

Btw if we are going to talk about misogyny let's talk about the huge amount of misandry on TF. Awful. But of course that's ok.

Really? The only threads that I check regularly are the outfits thread and the Singaporean chat thread, so I haven't noticed this at all.
