wrath, I've often wondered why your daughter wasn't on here.
All that said, I never miss a salon appointment or any opportunity to wear a dress and heels!
She thinks this is an old geezer site and does not want to be associated dear old dad. As for salons and dresses/heels...she likes it but skiing, boarding and dh are the priority. She has gotten shit from her gfs for not going to proms and such cause she'd rather be hanging with the boys and ripping around. I know some girls are darn jealous for that ability to hang with the boys; even 3-4 old bf's still come to the house and they hang out with their new gf or her current bf... baking cookies, making dinners and sewing up tall hoodies, neck gaiters and working on bikes and skis. Its pretty funny...she calls them her boys and just tells them what to do....she's kind of a mother hen that way. As a parent, I think it works well and think its pretty healthy way to socialize as a group.

I have a good amount of experience in snowboarding. If you saw me on the mountain you would be able to tell I am female. My outwear is women specific and my women's board is stage 10 girly. I am not a pro level rider, but I shred.

The dog forum I post at is mostly women.
This is only speculation, but I went out with a girl whose mom was a dog breeder.

Aren't 90% of female dog breeders (cough cough) dykes?

On, a slightly related (...and also quite possibly sexist!) note,.. Wouldn't you think that with women's physiology,.. the accepted wisdom being (most women) have a lower center of gravity than men! (...not carrying a bulk of their muscle mass in their chest & shoulders like men,) Not me mind you,.. I'm a Tubb! I mean real men!! Wouldn't this tend to let women have naturally better balance on the board, progress faster, become "Better" riders??? Just curious!


You gal's need to come up with something like that for the guy's! Oh right,.. "Immature, douche bag, sexist Assholes!!" I forgot!
I take that to be true. Women having a lower center of gravity not only helps in carrying dem babies but also would translate to a benefit in snowboarding. Iirc this has been discussed/debated in other threads before.

Ah. Yeah well if I lived in your area I'd probably miss a salon appointment or two! But I'm able to do both the girlier things and hang with the boys...since secret pillow stashes have a whole other meaning on this coast And yeah...many women are jealous of that ability to be cool with the guys. I've lost female friends because they couldn't get past it. Eh, they always have pinterest. ha.

maybe the other ladies here don't have long stretches of complete boredom at work between putting out fires....

I think that is mostly why I read/post here......


I am just sitting at work waiting for shit to break

posts of picture of his ironing board -> do a shot with no chaser
compares his T7 to his ironing board -> 2 shots
argues over some semantics that matter to no one but himself? -> drink until you fall over. (the lib tech best camber thread is my #1 example)


also, any mention of "alpine" "boardercross" or "hardboot" is an automatic drink one time.


you know I love you right? <3
Hahaha, you put this up You know, forgot to add drinking when he requests pics of female members or pics if someone is asking questions on the for my wife or gf posts.

I'm surprised there aren't more female members, but it does seem like there have been more posting lately. I mostly read the forum and am not as active as a poster, but I usually see ladies chiming in when there's a thread on female topics (boards, outerwear, etc). Not many jump in on the shit talk like Mixie.

I think half the people I've ridden with during my 3 seasons have been female. So they're out there, but not on (or not regular posters on) the forum.

Anyone remember those biker mags that had the 'send in pics of your wife'?

A friend of mine saw her mom in one of those

Back to Original Topic.

I would post on here more if I had something relevant to say but being a newb, only 5 days under my belt, it's not like I can contribute to much. And I'm doing great riding so I just read the advice but I have no reason to comment I guess.

My GF feels the same way I think... Unfortunately I think she doesn't see what it's like to be a regular poster. You get to develop "internet relationships" with all kinds of people with the same interest as you, and I find that fun.

I've been members of forums for about 15 years now, since I got my first car, I've attended more meets than I can count, met some great people, had a blast in the process, and yes had several internet debates/scuffles which I think help your debating skills. I've met girlfriends through forum friends (no, not my current girlfriend, this was back in my sportbike days), had job offers, etc. all from just talking on this internets thingy here...

So I guess my advice is: don't be afraid to post! Noobs can provide just as much valuable info to other noobs as the veterans can. Why? Because I don't remember what it was like to learn. I was 11 years old... Somebody who is just learning, or who has learned in the last couple years as an adult (like my current GF) can sometime do way better to help a new rider than the old guys can. Plus there's a lot of off-topic stuff so you don't always have to be talking about snowboarding.

BTW, if you're still counting that's 3 shots! Oh, and I'll need pictures...
