Women's only threads

Are there any women's only sections to find reviews and info and talk pertaining only to women and their equipment? I haven't found any and not even a good way to search existing forums for info.

There is no forum that is just "for the Ladies". I'm open to creating one, but in reality you'll probably get a bunch of "e-creeps" trolling the threads. There are a ton of threads on women's gear in their respective sections. Boots, Boards, outerwear, etc.

It might segregate all the guys who could offer valuable insight but can't be bothered to click into the forum. Unless of course they see it as a new topic to begin with

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?

You are quite right, but i was referring to guys whose girlfriends have already confirmed likes/dislikes towards a particular product, and are not on forums to comment themselves.

Obviously this doesn't affect me either way, but if you guys do decide that a separate forum is 'too much', you could always just sticky a few key threads to get organization and set a starting point for the ladies.

I think some key information threads would be more beneficial then the "Ladies Only". The E-creeps always end up invading those anyways.

If a women has a question, especially if it is female-centric, usually other females have the drive to answer it. If guys have any knowledge they can answer it too. I just don't think we have enough female-users to justify a female only section, it would likely be dead most of the time.

I understand if I post a question it will get answered BUT when just browsing threads it's very difficult to sort through them all since I'm only looking for opinions on women's snowboards and reviews of women's snowboards.

In other words, what I"m looking for is a women's section for these threads: women's equipment:boards, bindings, etc; women's equipment reviews; & buy/sell women's equipment These are very gender specific topics and I don't mind if guys chime in BUT the topic would be women's equipment
