I don't see anything bad about it. I suppose, if you let your imagination fill in the blanks on some of the titles, you could come to some negative conclusions, but then again, you might not. I wouldn't jump to conclusions about what the male members of this forum are discussing. If you're really concerned, have a read.
Also, I think it should be pointed out that men and women communicate differently, and men can tend to be less subtle, sometimes. We find statements like, "Should I choke my wife?" to be a humorous way to express frustration over a problem marital issue, not as a literal question! I have certainly heard male bashing comments on this forum, by frustrated women, and most of us males have conceded to the feeling being communicated, rather than the particulars of how it was expressed. I don't think it's too much to ask to expect the women to have the same open-mindedness.
So, basically, take a chill pill and let the boys be boys, and we will gladly do the same for all of you. Personally, I am tired of the bad rap that men get when compared with women, especially in how our wants and feelings differ from theirs. I think more tolerance and acceptance might be worth considering. That, and maybe taking a look at what's actually being said before making judgements about it.
