Yeah, it's funny, I started Spondyville in 1995, and I was surprised, at first, at how many women kept showing up, far more than the ratio of men to women with AS. That was a clue to me, that the thinking at the time about women and AS was off; that there were a lot more of them than was, at the time, predicted. But additionally, I think women do tend to be more willing to openly share their feelings, while some men, wait until they're in a crisis and need an answer. I also think women tend to seek out help more often than men, in the same way men won't ask for directions when driving.
The truly enlightened men, however, like us, are able to be both manly AND sensitive.
P.S. I've also noticed the some people join, share, get the support they need, and then leave, only coming back if their current status deteriorates and they have more questions. I suppose that's just the nature of things.
