    Is Hubpages Sexist? wink

    I wrote 2 hubs... one about How Men Deal With Stress, and the...other about How Women Deal With Stress.

    They are similar in length and content, but the one for the women got a higher score than the one for men!

    What gives? smile

    I believe it is just one of the differences between the genders. It isn't that one is better than the other, it just may be a matter of who is interested in learning about how each gender deals with stress.  Personally, I would like to know how both myself and my man deal with it, but that is a female's take.  A man may feel he already knows how HE deals with it and could skip the article on men, focusing more on understanding HER.

    Likely the poeople who read it liked that article perspective more (as it applied to them) and voted it up. The voters could of been predominantly female or not the world will never know

    Interesting.  If they have the same amount of traffic, it could be that the higher score one gets more votes up and/or comments here on HP.  The Hub score doesn't affect the traffic.  After the first week or so, traffic mainly boils down to what Google, Yahoo, Bing... send to your Hubs as a result of web searches.

    I don't think that Google, et al, knows anything about Hub Scores.

    If it is considered sexism, it is probably because men usually give a cr*p less than women about the subject.  C'est la vie.
