Do you think twice for replying to topics bordering on addressing men OR women?

There are some topics on Mylot that border on specifically addressing men OR women.I answered to such a discussion today ,but I was unsure whether I should because I thought it was meant for women.So,I apologized while answering,but the person told me I 'should' be responding to it because I am a man.So, obviously I was wrong,lol.Are you at times unsure before posting when you come across such discussions ? What do you do with them ? Take a chance and answer or bypass them ?

That was an honest mistake and I really think you have idea with that discussion so why limit it to woman only? It is just like making a discrimination of the topic and sometimes it is nice to hear opposite views on the issue right? Gladly I never yet across a discussion who limit only for man but If I really felt I have something to say in that discussion then I think there is no point of being warned on posting on it lol!!! Next time be more careful lol!! enjoy posting.

Ohh why not, I take a chance..lol..I mean if I read through there topic and see some way i'm similar, or agree, or somehow can relate I will answer reguardless of the topic unless its in plain black and white "Women- answer this or Men- answer this.. I just look at it as freedom of speech :)

Sometimes, i think twice of replying topics like that because sometimes, i cant relate with the men discussions. But if i can answer questions that is for men only, why not, i just wanted to share my ideas as a woman. And i dont think, it's not bad to share my opinion.

I think if it's posted on MYLOT then you have the right to answer to anything if you have an answer or a thought on the topic.I answered a discussions about pregnacy that was meant for a women but i gave my thoughts on it and they women said it was nice to hear from a man in the discussion

Ah,it happened to me to.It was a topic concerning women's behaviour towards women and I replied to that discussion starting with 'I am sorry but..' and she appreciated it.I guess, on my lucky day I will be welcomed and on a perilous day I will be crucified,lol.I prefer to be lucky,lol.

I do respond to this kind of discussions if I have something to say.. I don't really care if that discussion is solely addressed to men or the other so long as there's something I could add up to the topic. But if I feel I don't have a word to add up to that discussion then I wouldn't waste dropping some lines which wouldn't make sense a bit. :P

Well this has never happened with me as I respond to every discussion for which I feel I can give a suitable answer. Well from nowonwards I will observe this as I never thought twice before responding that a question is gender based. But in some discussions they do mention that females do reply then I understand it is for females only.
