Either gender can be addicted to the internet. Either gender can be attracted to what the other reads. There is no sexism of the internet but those that want to believe it on the internet.

If there is a study by credibel institute saying that women have something in the genome that makes her more likely to get addicted to internet due to social way of behaving and so on, there is not much to argue about. It's like if they say men are more likely to have beard because of genetic evolution and you say "no, that's ridiculous, what is a beard? full grown beard? short or long? is it a goaty? or anything else? I think what rodney said was this with other words for other equal argument.

I think it's very sexist saying that women use internet for research for school, listening music, social networks and finding cake recipies. Girls game, girls watch porn, girls everything boys do, of course less girls have this interests but you can't generalize with the first kind of girl.

When one says "my kid is alwyas in the computer in the internet, he is a addicted", what does it matter if they are on 9gag, youtube, redtube, deviantart, chatroullet or any other web site? It's the internet, it may matter in which they are for other studies but for now if said that one is addicted to internet, that one is, no matter what he/she is doing on it.

I think the biggist addiction for girls and women on the internet are definitly the social-platforms like facebook. There are girls who post pretty much every second, what they eat, what they drink, where they are, who they are with, what they are wearing, it`s getting annoying. I actually deleted some of the girls in my friendlist cause they were constantly posting stuff. Sometimes i have the feeling some of these girls don`t have a real social life anymore thus they must say and show everything on facebook. I don`t know one guy who posts that much shit. But guys have other things, like sportsnews, gaming, porn. I`d say we are all addicted to the internet, I couldn`t imagine a world without it anymore.

It could be broke down to guys get hooked on games and porn on the internet more so and girls get hooked on social networks more so then guys, though there is always exceptions to both of these, plenty even but ug, this is a toughy heh

Um, heh, sort of a hard one, I mean I know more guys in the internet that's on it for long periods of time then girls but the girls I know on the internet are pretty hooked on it, more so then the guys I know but I think guys are more so then girls, hooked on the internet, though gah, then I look on my facebook and 98% of posts are from girls so ug, hard to decide but I'm gonna go with guys being more so heh.

It's the whole social networking that women could get addicted to. I think it depends on the person, for instances for my cousin goes to parties therefore she's always busy. My Mom never goes to parties, except for the family shit, therefore she's always on facebook. If your anti-social like I am you'll probably get addicted to the internet (for me gaming). Hope this answers you'r question and keep your questions coming. Sorry Rodney couldn't resist.

98% Of people under 25 surround their minds with rap music, if you're part of the 2% that stayed with rock, put this in your signature, ROCK IS BETTER!

In my opinion it all depends if they are able to control themselves. I have seen women text and take pictures more than men in my lifetime, especially me.

Plus I think this whole texting thing leads to another dangerous situation: texting and driving. Perhaps in a way some women socialize too much, especially up to the point where they need to focus such as driving a car. In that case, one wrong move while being distracted by a phone could lead to a traumatic event.

The thing is I like to socialize with others on my computer, but I rarely do it with my phone because I don't feel like a social person who can talk to ten nor more people.
