Females at SFN

Recommended Posts

It's kinda weird that I have still not "met" any female here at SFN. All are males! Is there a policy about that (just joking:D) or no interest in the kind of science it is discussed here?

:doh:

I've seen someone whose avatar is a female holding a microphone on the hand, but maybe not a female. That was the only case I've seen so far and that's why I asked (I know it's silly).

You can't fool me. You were hoping all the lingerie model / scientists we've been hiding would post to tell you how wrong you are. ;)

 

 

 

 

I actually hope your scheme works, you devil. >:D

There are obviously only intelligent women posting here.

 

Unlike the criminal hiding in a darkened warehouse who, when a cop shouted out, "Marco!" he answered, "Polo!"

Can we please get over this, Tom?! It was a long time ago, I was scared and not thinking straight. At least *I* didn't hide in a sack and say, "Potatoes!" when the cop kicked it. :rolleyes:

I think the females here are afraid of revealing themselves because they know they'll immediately be piled upon by lonely nerds.

Many of the females have stopped posting, like IMM and AP.

Well we tried stopping you last time but it didn't help....

I have an alternate theory; women are actually the secret guardians of all the scientific secrets. They don't populate this forum, because they don't have any questions about science... they know it all already. Any women scientists you meet are actually spies, planted to make sure the subculture of the male gender remains subdominant in terms of scientific knowledge.

 

Therefore, I plea with my fellow man, cast of the yoke of bondage! Let us continue to conduct scientific research until we can overthrow our female overlords!

I suggest you try match.com. You MIGHT have better luck.

I'll see if I can get AP back for a bit, at least. Fools beware: lightly she will not suffer thee.

We paid our debt to society. 'Nuff said. :cool:

 

That's another reason why men rule:rolleyes:!
Yeah! What *he* said (nice one, bro, that'll bring 'em out)!

Holly Grail guardians! But looks like one betrayed them, Marie Kyri!

Scared?:eek:

 

Like scared not to be able to participate "strong" enough in discussions?

 

ADD:

Oh come on swansont, please tell us the story! It seems to be quite funny one! After all, this section is about discussing anything (cops and potatoes too)!;)

I don't think he likes to talk about his potatoes much.

OK anyways! But his potatoes seem to be funny!

Somebody had to distract Elsa, the cute but ultimately traitorous security guard. Like you didn't cry like a little girl when I got the long straw. :rolleyes::P

How does gender even begin to become relevant in an online scientific forum? If you're missing sensual connections of the female variety, get a blackberry and post from the bar while you chat up some girls. Doesn't matter with whom you chat via keyboad... at least, not on a science forum, only in real life. :cool:

That would be me, and yes, I'm a 19 year old female. Although I don't post much anymore I haven't left the forum and I visit almost every day to see what's new. As to your question, I won't speak for other females, but for me it was the open display of arrogance and pompousness by some posters that prompted me to back away and just lurk which I do.

 

A late example would be the attack on a Miss Teenage America contestant by grown up forum members that I thought were going overboard. See it here and you will get the picture.

Anyway, it's an awesome place to learn. ;)
