Do MeFites like each other? I've noticed that a lot of MetaTalk threads are MeFites butting heads. Are there any MeFites who actually enjoy each other's company?

Ok, so that was my pathetic attempt to be "funny" while referencing a problematic AskMe
wondering if women actually like each other.
So far it doesn't seem to be a trainwreck... yet... but throw in an unhealthy stereotype of women, some confirmation bias, and a few anecdotes about hell having no fury like a lesbian scorn...
Ok, maybe this is just *my* craw that this is stuck in, but I can think of a lot of analogous "Does X group really behave like Y?" stereotype questions that wouldn't be allowed to stand.
Anyhow, I suppose the asker is trying to overcome some stereotypes, but I don't think that AskMe really needs to be the place where we try to enlighten ourselves culturally by "refuting" (or not) backhanded accusations towards entire groups of people.
