I'm left of center by U.S. standards, but right of center by international standards; so since this is a global forum, I tend to identify myself as right of center.Phena wrote: In fact Aloka, there doesn't seem to be many women voices in general on Dhamma Wheel. I wonder why that is? Actually, where are the female Mods and/or Admins? This place has a serious lack of balance. Not just with gender but it seems also to be a prerequisite to have a Moderation or Admin role one has to be a right-winger. Perhaps this is not surprising when one considers the owner of this site is male, capitalist with conservative leanings. In my experience the culture of any organisation always trickles-down to reflect the views and ideals of the owner/boss, etc.
Americans think I'm too liberal, others think I'm too conservative.
You can't always tell gender by usernames, but it does appear the vast majority here are male. We do have a female moderator here it is just that she is very busy with IRL matters and not that active right now.
The current polling in the poll thread on abortion shows a sizable number choosing pro-choice. For the general public, I googled once looking to see if there was some significant bias of men being anti-choice and women being pro-choice and it turns out there were no significant differences in how people responded by gender.
