    As long as that is only a "ladies only" section, where woman and girls want to discuss their stuff, I have no problem with that. Optional we could also have a man-cave somewhere.

    It's not that we design the whole forum in accordance to that.

    I have to agree with what was said about the social trend to separate the genders. One of the reasons I like Skadi is that it has a significant percentage of both genders and we have the opportunity to hear each other's visions out. Skadi has an impressive amount of nationalist women and I don't think there is a topic which they would have to be blocked from. Vice versa is also true. Surely, there are typically male and female topics but not everyone fits the stereotype. There are male cooks, gardeners or make up artists who do well at their jobs and could offer valuable or helpful advice on those topics. So it's not necessary to exclude membership based on gender. We do need cooperation between the two genders after all, and not segregation.

    I'm a new member so my opinion may not weigh as much as the others' here, however, as a reader and observer of Skadi for the last year, I would think that such an idea wouldn't be beneficial to the community. Skadi is a great forum because it caters to all Germanics and doesn't have that anti-women attitude that is sometimes found among the far right. A segregated section could unfortunately encourage such elements.

    I don't really see a need for it, new as I may be at the moment. The board seems to be more pleasant and congenial between the sexes, which is a relief.

    Considering the fact that some of the most reasonable posters here are women, I'd rather encourage their participation, not discourage it.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I'm satisfied posting with both men and women. I don't feel the need to exclude men from anything I have to comment on.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    I don't think that the activity levels would warrant such sections, at least not at the moment. Further fragmentation could prove counter-productive and more likely than not, those sections wouldn't be too active themselves. But if people really see it as a necessity, we now have the social groups option which can be used by those who want segregated or private, invite-only sections. You can create your own group(s) and make it/them moderated (people can apply to join but must be approved by a group leader) or invite-only (one must receive an invite from the group in order to be able to join). You can make the group private and viewable by group members only. And this doesn't only apply to gender. It's also a nice tool for those who want to host workshops or local chapters.

    By default, staff members can still view private/secret groups however, with the new version of vBulletin it is theoretically technically possible to exclude them (both moderators and administrators, as long as they aren't members of said groups). It could be feasible as long as each group would have at least one staff member of the respective gender it - one female staff member to moderate the female group, one male staff member for the male group.

    Nevertheless, even with private and segregated groups, it unfortunately cannot be guaranteed that what is written in the group also stays in the group. Leaks are not always easy to identify and they could well be legit group members, it doesn't necessarily have to be someone of the opposite gender and/or with default or "accidental" access there. How secret/private the information remains depends on the people involved and their regard for privacy, whether there are shared households/computers involved, etc. Also, accounts could get hacked theoretically, and so on. The most foolproof method is not to share anything that is too sensitive if you don't trust everyone involved and do not want that information to be re-shared.
