I am a new member to Female Forum and new to forums in general. So, my opinion on this subject may be a little less knowledgeable than some of the others.
I think there may be some women who, for personal reasons, may feel safer having a forum to converse only with women. I am sure that there are many intelligent, interesting forums where men and women are both encouraged to join. For a woman or man who would like to speak freely with other men and women on those forums, I imagine that person may do so.
There are some women who may benefit from a women’s forum, to share personal stories and get advice, who may feel safer only with other women. There may also be some men who for personal reasons may feel safer sharing their thoughts in a forum with only men. I, personally, would not be offended by a forum for men only.
That being said, the few men who are already posting on this forum seem empathetic, and I feel safe to exchange ideas with them as well as the women : )
