Title: Any female members on this forum?
Post by: I-39 on July 14, 2017, 09:27:17 PM
Serious question. I am genuinely curious to know how many members of this forum are female. From my experience, roadgeeking has been a predominantly guy thing, so how many females do we have on here? Not judging or anything, just genuinely curious.

About seven. (This is not sarcastic.)

(BTW, females may feel uncomfortable in a male-dominated forum, so you may not see the true number.)

I know of one member who participates on occasion who is not comfortable indicating her gender openly on the forum - because I am related to her.

You both are right, so let me rephrase the question. Does anyone know of any female roadgeeks on this forum? You don't have to identify them, but I was just curious to know how many female roadgeeks there are and how they got into roadgeeking, since it is after all a predominantly male hobby.

I-29 is more likely.

A different female member of this forum: vdeane. (It's in her profile, and she has corrected people referring to her as "he/him", so I'm okay saying this.)

Also, the stats say the male:female ration is 12.4:1, but this includes people who haven't posted at all (which is quite a lot), so this ratio can't really be trusted.

I can overly guarantee the female name in my handle here isn't a poster. That said, she has become very good at seeing some of the oddities of road and highway stuff and will often point them out to me...and will even take pictures on occasion!

I warmly welcome the few but fun female members of AARoads, where we all can share our true love: roads. I'm a member of a largely female forum dedicated to an anime show and I fit right in there.

"Moonie" - Sailor Moon fan. MLP FiM (My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic) isn't an anime. Not surprisingly, I'm a biological male who identifies as genderfluid or bigender. And I have a wife plus 3 kids, so I'm a loyal husband and devoted father, I don't need the internet to find women because as the saying goes: "there are no girls on the internet".
