This is a discussion on Poker causes conflicts between men & women ? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; 1.that you think ???to be at tables with women causes conflict or causes imbalance..
in my case I have never had conflict with any woman, but
I once posted something slightly sexist and it got removed. To avoid being deleted again I will not make it clear if I am referring to men or women that way the mods can't remove.
Gender T is more level-headed but will at times get somewhat emotional in Poker because of bad beats or joy at big or close wins. They are more aggressive and better at remaining happy and calm in the face of aggression.
Gender S is naturally impulsive and prefers passive, friendly Poker by nature, they can be rational and play well by training to become more T-like and throughout history have willingly let T dominate them in almost all societies but have closed the gap in most societies to a large extent after many Ts went to war and they realized they can cope working and running businesses alone... Not to mention that since a lot of Ts died in the war there was simply more Ss to go around work wise and sexual wise too
Now, it is people who are less emotionally driven and who can be aggressive without feeling anger (yes to be an a** through actions but a meditating guru inside while doing so) that dominate poker. Unlike with other industries gender S cannot argue that they have an unfair setback due to the law and society holding them back because Poker doesn't in any way discriminate against gender S, in fact gender S are at such a scarcity in poker that gender T is extra nice to them even if only for the sexual attention. Those of gender S that make it far in poker are very T-like in general. They aren't necessarily transgender but they exhibit many mental and emotional mannerisms and patterns especially when talking about poker and playing it that are T-like and not at all S-like.
The main natural disadvantage that Ss face in Poker is that it's been scientifically proven that gender T is more long term goal oriented mentally and gains far less emotional satisfaction from short term interactions and short term accomplishments but far more from ones done over many years that required a degree of math, determination and much less language/communication and emotion to achieve.
