I have only recently posting and really can't tell who the women are. I am open to anyone's advise as long as it's valid.

Welcome Deborah!

I know, it can be hard to tell from the username who the women are in the forum. Most of the responses in the herSailnet section are from men!

There is a lot of valid information in the forum. Sometimes you get different opinions on the same subject. All the different opinions may be valid, but sometimes you have to figure out which one fits your situation.

Thanks, I just saw the topic and thought it odd that the women would be silent. I ask way more questions than my husband. He would rather take four times as long figuring something out himself than track down someone who knows to ask. I am a firm believer in taking advantage of those who have gone before me.

Hi Deb! Welcome aboard! Yes it's hard to id who's who. One of my irritants. People that only ID the spouse and seem to have none of their own is another!

Then sometimes you can not tell by the name......

I remember another thread in another forum, the handle was DEB. A lot thought the person was female using a shortened Debbie to Deb......Turns out said male was using his Initials! IE he was a Dan or doug or some such thing........

anyway, its a saturday, off to work of all things. oh yeah, one gets somewhat used to the m/f differences having grown up with 5 sisters and mom......then again, not sure I will. I will say, ALL have given me good advice on things thru the years!

"Most of us are not as bold as the other gender into entering discussions which may lead to arguments on how things should be right or wrong. Just the nature of the beast." said Melrna.

Exactly. It's testosterone. We got it, they don't. Well, not in the arrogant quantities that we have.

I had a female friend tell me that women can talk smack just like men, it's just that they don't revel in it like men do. We men are a rough lot, mouthy, aggressive, a bit crass, and seem to always be ready for a fight.

And strangely, women love us for it.

Now THAT'S sexy!

I don't get it, but as the above says, Nature of the Beast!

Cool

Sad to say, I've found that men tend to not take the female sailors seriously around here too often, unless they do something like get a captain's license or anything on that order. I've asked lots of questions & tend to get ignored, put down or otherwise treated like an ignorant ass for asking. But they'll let me clean their boats - yep, they'll take that. And they'll act shocked when I don't panic in severe weather.

As far as not posting much, I'm not on line much.

I want to be so famous that drag queens will dress up like me in parades after I'm dead.

SJ, Even on the job when I had a crew working on an installation, the clients very often would ask about details and technical things from the guys working for me, instead of me, and I'd be standing right there or nearby LOL This is often after I've already met with them and answered the same questions when I sold the installation.

In forums like this; when people ask about HVAC things people tell them to talk an "expert" LOL then when I do finally offer help or advice someone nit picks what I'm saying rather then try and help the OP.

So glad I'm not an angry feminist anymore!
