As a newbie, I wondered the same thing. Had to scroll down to the cellar of the board to find the women's forum. ;i

I figured they should swap O&A with the Women's Forum, but nobody listens to my suggestions.

Perhaps by keeping us way down here in Miscellany, the mods are hoping to keep the riff-raff away...

But, being as you're off in a remote area, you could probably post anything you wanted and not get thread locked!!!

If you look real close, just above "Women's Issues", you'll see a glass ceiling...

It's not "Women Only" it's "Women's Issues". As the length and depth of women's issues can be overly broad it would be hard to fit it in to any other category formen, I mean forum.

Also, women who might otherwise not meander through other's less interesting (on the surface) subjects just might find (and get) what they want in a centrally located information depository. This in-turn may not quench the ensuing rising fire and need of inquest. The finale being what we've wanted all along, their wanton perusing of our domain.

Because it's nice to have a little corner where we can 'chat'. There are lots of little corners in Glock Talk, this one is no different. I can't imagine why anyone would be insulted by it. General Non-Glocking doesn't have a no-women policy, last time I checked, nor do any of the other forums. I like this forum (when it isn't being invaded), but I don't stay here.

don't get me wrong, i understand why others may like the idea, i personally don't feel a need for it (like a lot of other forums here). just my opinion, that's all. i'm just not sure why womens issues should be in here, whether it be womens carry issues (go post in the carry issues forum), women LEO stories (go post in the LEO forum), etc.

on the other hand we can talk about PMS (or menopause, which ever is more relevent) in here

Ashley, I would use this forum if I wanted to make sure I'd get responses from the women. If you post in GNG or carry issues about purse carry - you are guaranteed to get slammed by some of the men for even thinking of carrying off your body. Only another woman can understand that we don't wear clothing the same as men and can't always carry the same as men. The same goes for carrying smaller guns. It's "safe" to ask questions and such without getting slammed for not going for a certain gun or caliber (think I got slammed one too many times? ;g ) Had it not been for the fact that my hubby is knowledgable, I'd still be working my way out of my shell to post things on GT.

I resect you not feeling a need for this forum - just wanted to give you more insight on why some like it.

Not to mention talking about other things we like without some of the GNG guys getting on our case about it.
