So I've been posting at a postmodern, christian website for several years now. I've had this problem before and brought it up to the rest of the group, but nothing seems to be changing. This is what happens (from my point of view):
I bring up idea X.
No one comments on it.
A page or two later a male poster brings up idea X.
Several people comment on what a good idea it is.
At first I thought it was my communication style - maybe I wasn't being clear enough, or maybe there was something in the way I worded it that detracted from my message.
So I worked harder to clearly convey my point. I reread my posts, looking for words or phrases that might be clouding the issue. It doesn't seem to be making a difference.
Does this happen to anyone else? Short of assuming a male identity online, how can I stop this?
