Where are the women?
« on: April 17, 2012, 12:11:20 PM »
When I post on this site, I feel like I'm invading a "good old boys club."
The only other women I've seen post here are Josie & Solar's Toy.
I need to find a site where I can converse with some women.   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Sadly women simply aren't interested in politics.
There was a study done some time back which showed political forums were 99% men and the remainder were women.
You would do better to simply bring women here, go to other sites and explain your plight, I'll even create a forum just for you gals.
Hows that sound, and you can be moderator. :cool:

Funny thing is Holly when I originally started posting on a forum (on another site). There were a core of about 5 women who posted on a semi-regular basis.   Unfortunately it was mainly in a games forum (which was totally boring and they kept repeating the same "games" over and over) or their version of the Living Room.  Mostly fluff topics....  Toy

Both of you are right. A lot of my friends think politics is boring vs. the latest sale on shoes or hair color.  :laugh: :laugh:

I was never interested in politics until 2000 when it was obvious Gore was trying to win the election by any means.  Since that time, I've paid attention to what's going on.

I'll be hard pressed to find any women that care enough to join a forum, but I'll keep looking..   :biggrin:

Keep trying Holly.  I have invited my sisters but one of the problems is they don't like to "argue".  So they come and read but rarely post.  I keep trying...too.   :wink:

Try a local Tea party event, you'll find a lot of fired up women there.

Holly's comment reminds me of a quote I once read where some famous woman was asked why so few women entered politics, and replied to the effect that it gave men something to do and kept them from being underfoot in the house.

Just thought I'd share that, seated at my home computer, looking for something to do.  :smile:

These days I wish I had half your energy.  An hour or so of anything semi physical and I am exhausted.  Hopefully I will be getting back up to my full speed again soon. I miss staying busy.

My wife and I have followed this whirlwind for about eight years now on various sites. N says, "Elfie's on the move!" I ask, when isn't she?  :biggrin: :thumbsup:

Bert, putting on heels and a mini skirt doesn't count.
Just thought I'd throw that out there. :laugh:

Nice you could take the time to drop in MeLady.    Hope you and Himself have a R/C/Weekend.   Sound like Lira is almost a big as you.   :laugh:    Hope you have a nice sunny weekend for putting the docks in.
