Default Where are all the females?!

Came across this article:

I've heard this other places to...that the hard-core OW fans are mostly female...but where are they on the OWF? We have a few girls, but it's mostly guys here. Why do you think?

Is it because girls don't like doing the forum thing? Your opinions...

VanillahKillah, RedMuse, and AbeBabe make up for any lack of girls on OWF

I suppose those girls are just not the internet type, or maybe are not aware of the forums as of yet.

Oh...How could I forget Hayley?

I was just pointing out that we at the OWF appear to be hard-core fans and know a lot about OW...and the majority of us are guys. Lorne says that Women are the hard-core fans, so why aren't they on OWF? Wouldn't it be more balanced?

Eh, I think it's the fact that girls tend to have more of a social life than guys, and usually aren't as computer savvy as us. I'm sure there are plenty of hardcore female fans out there that just haven't discovered OWF, or don't have time for it.

kellie, please refrain from double posting.

As for the females on the forums subject. I agree. We have a shortage of women. But from what I've seen, read, or heard, the females seem to be the die hard fans. Wasn't there a joke somwhere, saying the perfect gift for your girlfriend was Abe's Oddysee? Which would keep her quiet, while the guy rested?

Alcar...

Boys... sorry... males tend to have the apptitude to sit for hours and hours and hours in front of a computer... girls do not! There's more important s**t like... shopping, cooking, cleaning, washing our hair, chatting to our (real) mates on the phone... blah de blah de blah... we like to fit in what I like to call "a life" between playing OW!

Besides... this place is too much of a "boys club" (testosterone, trampled feelings and dicks) for "real" girly girls to feel comfortable here. You're better off without girly girls anyway... *YUCK!*

Yes, because only girls have to do these things.

We boys never buy anything, eat, wash our hair, or talk to real people.

It would appear so... looking at the state of some of you guys! (Tee-hee! i'm joshing!)

Seriously though... how else do you explain the lack of female talent round here?

I know that Kell!

I was simply being controversial!!! Trying to stir up things a bit! Mac the J and I tend to grapple now and again!

So do you know Ferill and Hobo from real life then or are we talking "cyber mates" here?... In fact answer that via PM Kell... I'm straying off topic here and will be killed...

Hey! Maybe thats why you don't get a lot of females in here! We can't stray off and hold duel conversations like we tend to do in real life!!!

Since the women are more die-hard OW fans, does that mean they know more about OW4 than us on the forums? I think not. So what would you consider a hard-core fan anyway?

It says further up somewhere on this page all the active posting females.

I stick with my suggestion for a black forum though nobody commented at all apart from Di$array Black suits so much.
