    Some of you guys are driving me away with your crazy bigotted sexist attitudes... and I'm a guy. No wonder the women are scarce on this forum!

    The majority of venders and buyers at the annual local gun show are men. However, a fair proportion of my female friends in farming country consider a gun as just one of many tools to be competently used when necessary rather than as a symbol for something that Freud might have elaborated on.

    For concrete information on the gender of actively creative people, I maintain the mail list for both a visual artist's group and a writer's group. About 10% on the lists and who actively participate in events are men. In a list of 33 area writers who have actually published books, 15 were men. Some of these books involved military combat, which skews the statistics. I sell photographs at an annual arts & crafts fair, and most of my customers are women.

    Since no one is exposed to the entire population, I would imagine opinions expressed in this thread are based on the group of people he or she associates with currently or in the past. All I can say is, group of women I work with and have known are mostly highly logical and very well educated. In fact, when I had to ask a mathematical (calculus level) question, the first person I called was a woman. Just recently, I had a lengthy conversation about "pointers to pointers" in C (if you know IT, you know it's a confusing subject) with my colleague who is a woman.

    Some of the opinions expressed in this thread are very toxic - not because the opinions contained in it but the way it is expressed is rude and condescending. I hope they don't talk like this in person. I would also like to mention, being PC (politically correct) and being considerate (or just maintaining decorum) when speaking is not the same thing.

    This is probably the saddest thread I've seen in APUG for quite a while. With that, I'm out of this thread. Thanks.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    ... but probably because they know their stuff, not because of their gender.
