Why does Quora put up with this sexism and misandry?

This takes the cake for bigotry. Eva Glasrud's answer to What encourages women to become obsessed with beauty? Is there anything that can be done to prevent this?

Consider these two gems:

This is also why women are so attracted to displays of wealth/resource-gathering ability. They're not shallow! They just need to know that their potential mate is willing and able to provide for her and her offspring.


I doubt there's anything to be done for it. Men are sort of programmed to be superficial and shallow.

  • People like to be defensive or shift the blame, for the things that aren't favourable ("light casting") to say out loud about oneself. Everyone knows that women are obsessed with beauty, so rather than Eva be honest and say that she's insecure or likes to be alluring to men, instead she'll shift the blame onto men, to make herself feel better. People like to show themselves in a good light on the internet.
  • Quora is full of feminists who will upvote her, as our past experiences with people, give us our prejudices of them. Everyone is prejudice to someone, and anyone who says they aren't, is lying.
  • Quora doesn't represent a fair sample of society. The number 1 followed topic is Startups.

Don't worry about it. That's life. People are different, and it just so happens that some people have drastically different viewpoints on the world. That's what makes life and the world so interesting.

PS. Eva is wrong. Actually it is women who are programmed to be shallow. I can back this up with scientific research!

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
