Re: Is it just us?

I have noticed though, that we have women join the forum, post a couple of times, and then seem to disappear. I was just wondering, if it was a lack of interest, or if it were something, in the tone, or demeanor, of the men here, that was driving them away. I realize, that guns, shooting, hunting, etc, have been prominently, male dominated subjects, but with the increasing numbers of female LTC holders, it would seem that there would be more women participating in some of our discussions. But maybe, most women, are more inclined, as the sampling of my own family members indicate, to spend their spare time on other things.

Is it just us?

I am just wondering, why this forum, doesn't get more posts, from women?
Are we overly political? Do we present, an aura of toxic masculinity? Are there just not enough topics, that women can relate to? ( I know grammatically incorrect)
In the past year I have assisted in getting, Mrs. Jusme, my daughter, my sister in law, my mother in law, and a female cousin, of my wife, their LTC. None of them are interested in joining the forum. Some just say, that it's "not their thing", talking about "guns" is boring, "I don't get into politics that much", "I don't know enough about the laws, to feel like I can speak intelligently about them"
Despite my best efforts, they just shy away.

I know that we have female members, on the forum, but very few, post. Some post a few times, but then go silent.
I am just curious, if there were some changes, we could make, topics we could discuss, that would garner more interest, from our female LTC holders?

Please chime in, and don't worry about being critical. Most of us are married, and have developed pretty thick skin. :mrgreen: I
