Ha! Don't worry about him. We've always had all different sorts of members on this website. When I first started posting comments here I was so happy to find that I wasn't alone in my worldview. The first time I posted a comment I was slammed in no uncertain terms and I walked away from the keyboard wicked upset. My teen daughters told me to "not take any crap from internet assholes" and I'm glad they were there to advise me. Now I take it with a grain of salt.

Remember that guys can have a different way of communicating. To us, they can come off as confrontational. I'm generalizing here, but it often seems to me that they are more comfortable with a "winner-loser" style where I find women more comfortable with a consensus-seeking style. I don't think he meant to hurt your feelings. He is mostly making basic statements that most people agree with that share our worldview. Don't take these things as personal insults.

Stick with it and you'll definitely learn a lot from this site.
