Most females I know that climb hard, don't have patients or time to do something as useless as posting on this forum...

Women climbers rock.

There is no lack of appeal in lady climbers or any other female athlete, in my opinion.

I prefer a strong woman to a weak curvy one any day.


Look at those arms! Straight A's are even better!

The female aesthetic in the US has been trending toward girls that look like fourteen year old boys for some time now. Won't speculate openly about what I think that means.

But we're getting off topic.

More women, of any stripe, would be welcome here.

Might inject some sense of shame in this boy's club.

But I kind of doubt it.

Lass>class.....class>lass. A magntetic attraction between the two. I have a friend who doesn't have a door on his bathroom OR a girlfriend.

Hawk, I guess Randisi didn't say curvy=weak, he said lacking in the "necessary" curves. I'm the one that implied curvy=weak. My bad.

Yeah Anita, if you don't like old losers you can always streak your young sexy ass over to youngsexyn00b.com. We love you, in a kinda itchy crabs sorta way!

"I have a friend who doesn't have a door on his bathroom OR a girlfriend."

I once thought that a bathroom door could be optional in a committed relationship. I was wrong about that, too.

I know my experience in life must be out of the mainstream, given the extent to which my views differ from most here. I nonetheless will let fly.

1. Who says climbing women are not attractive? You must live in a female-deprived area. I would say that a sampling of the population of women who climb (at least that I know) yields an exceedingly high proportion of attractive ones.

2. If you can't figure out why many women would find our environment here one of blatant male chauvinism, I doubt that I can help you.

blatant male chauvinism

Yes, that is pretty much the problem. Those of us who are able to ignore it for the most part, or not allow the culture to stop us from enjoying the content and participating, post. But I know there are several women who lurk or mask their gender to avoid having to deal with the crap.

There are plenty of decent, respectful men on this site, and they are worth knowing. It's also helpful to be tolerant of others, which I try to be, except in cases which cross my personal threshold. There have been a few people here who I would not seek out in real life due to some of the things they post on this site.

But, I am a very strong-willed person; not one to step away from confrontation or be driven into silence. Many women have a different way of being, and they choose not to participate in this decidedly unfemale-friendly place.

Yes indeed. Woman is singular, men is plural.


Kinda like supertesto.
