So, lately people from /r9k/ and /qa/ have complained about a rise in females browsing 4chan. Frankly I think both males and females are being idiots.
The entire purpose of 4chan is an anonymous 'clean-slate' community where people are only identified by the topic of the board they're in. The name 'Anonymous' means literally no info is known about said person to make the discussion completely unbiased. So why is anyone even claiming their gender? Gender, age and names should be a bannable offense if not related to the discussion of a thread.
On what grounds is being an anonymous 'clean-slate' community 4chan's entire purpose? From the "What is 4chan?" section on the front page and in the FAQ:
>4chan is a simple image-based bulletin board where anyone can post comments and share images. 4chan's collaborative-community format was inspired by one of the most popular forums in Japan, Futaba Channel. Different boards are dedicated to different topics, from Japanese anime, manga, and culture to videogames, music, and photography. Users do not need to register an account before participating in the community.
I don't see anonymity or "unbiased" discussion mentioned anywhere as being the "entire purpose" of 4chan.
People hate women on 4chan for the same reason you probably think this drawing is of a caucasian cisgendered heterosexual male. I mean, maybe you don't? You certainly probably don't while I'm framing it in a way that makes you think about it, but do you always think about it? I don't personally have a mind as active as you might say your mind is. I operate on a system of stereotypes, heuristics, and novelties that quickly become new stereotypes and heuristics.

The problem isn't females, it's fucking retards who melt down over it.
Take /pol/ for instance. /pol/ has become more /r9k/ than /r9k/.
Fucking click on it, and look at the first thread, chances are it's r9k relationship garbage.
The reason women make threads turn to r9k shit is because, statistically, there are more attention whores who really only want to discuss their feelings who also happen to be women than men.
That's when every thread turns into >tfw no gf and >tfw 5'11'' shit.
Same thing happens on /v/, but it gets culled pretty quickly. "MUH BETA MALES" shit remains on /pol/, /fit/, /tv/ and /k/ basically forever specifically because no one gives a shit about those boards.
How is this even a question? Guys. Specifically because we have more of them.
There are more shitposting guys than there are women on this whole site. Don't believe me? Check Alexa's 4chan page ranking for Australians.
