There are women reading everything in this thread. And commenting in this thread. I see it as a bit of a show of their restraint that some of the comments haven't been down-voted into oblivion. Or maybe they are just reluctant to take on fights when they are outnumbered.
Honestly, this thread is WAY more civil than most of the Stanford rapist related comment sections on the internet and I commend the quality of the 11W readership for that but wow, still a long ways to go for some people.
