Incidentally, about four years ago, I started a thread similiar to this in The Neutral Zone and got a whole load of POSITIVE responses from people (male and female) who shared my opinions regarding working with women.

So though in the minority, I'm certainly not alone.
Well, if you post in a forum that's specifically dedicated to discussing "contentious issues," it's naturally going to draw in a disproportionate number of people who want to advocate controversial or intolerant positions. And no online BBS is ever going to be a large or random enough sample to be statistically significant at showing anything.

And the fact that you don't find those people in the boards that are actually about Star Trek is telling. Star Trek is a show that was specifically designed to counter attitudes like that.
