The question of men in the Powder Room has been controversial since the beginning of the Lounge. While there has never been a formal policy prohibiting their participation -- the "Don't Peek" line in the room description, which predates my involvement here, seems to have always been meant more as a cutesy joke than a formal rule. But enough incidents have accumulated in recent years of women being bothered, annoyed, harassed, and even stalked across the Lounge by men that I'm about at the point where I'm ready to push the Lounge administration to make the PR and Beauty officlally "Women Only." Before doing this, however, I want to know what the rest of the membership here thinks. I don't mean to reflect on the general male membership of the Lounge -- as I've said in many posts over my eight years here, the overwhelming majority of the men men who populate the forum are good, decent men who aren't here to make trouble. Some of them have contributed fine, worthwhile material to our discussions. So, the question I want everyone to consider, very carefully, is this: are those contributions outweighed by the negatives of male participation in this part of the Lounge? Do you, as Lounge members and Powder Room/Beauty participants support the idea of making these sections "Women Only?" A yes or no answer will suffice -- and I'm specifically *not* doing this as an anonymous poll so I can be sure that it's women only who are voting. Simply post your reply in-thread, yes or no. Thank you.
