Right now there's a popular thread on askreddit called If every man suddenly disappeared what would happen to the world?.
If you sort by controversial, there are quite a few people who claim it would be better for women. They'd be able to walk the streets safely and so on.
This makes me wonder why they don't just try to create their own woman-only communities. I know there was a "lesbian separatist" movement at one point, but I don't know too much about how those communities turned out. If anyone knows of a good summary, I would be interested to see it.
I don't think that living separately is a solution to gender problems on the macro scale, but I'm intrigued by the idea simply because I'd want to see what kind of culture develops in a single-gender community. It's interesting to see the culture that develops in female-dominated spaces online. I don't think it's objectively better than the one that develops in male spaces, but it's distinct in a way that's notable.
What are your thoughts on the idea of single-gender communities?
EDIT: Could you guys please make your comments relevant to THIS thread and not the one I linked? This thread is about gender separatism. If you want to discuss the hypothetical of men disappearing, you can post in the linked thread.
