Barbie or Ken?

I'm fairly new to this (and Alfa ownership), but it seems to me this is quite a blokey forum - although it's not always easy to tell . So I was wondering how many of us (women with car taste ) are there?

Re: Barbie or Ken?

Don't know what the stats are, perhaps Mr. AO can tell us? There are many more men than women though (certainly who post). Always good to have women here though, broaden the outlook. Men can be a little anoraky sometimes .

And boys will be boys in the presence of women (some of the boys, anyway... )

By and large though, a good bunch with constructive and thought provoking things to say. There's some pretty cerebral things going on here sometimes (not from my keyboard though, you understand).

Don't put yourself down Silly - your lasik thread was v. interesting for the range of views it threw up. And anyway, I've noticed sometimes you can be quite cerebral.


EDIT: grief, have been pleasant to an AOer
so, as above, except when you are in old git mode

Barbie every time Lynn

I could count them for you. But the poll idea was nice.

Lynn, it sounds from your question that although the men are in the majority you don't find things too blokey here at AO already.

I think my over-riding impression of AO is that is a very friendly forum and almost everyone gets on really well with each other. However we do seem to have far fewer posts recently from women than we had previously.

I agree with Kurzon. The more we can attract new female members and keep existing female members the better.

Re: Barbie or Ken?

I voted Barbie, because I didn't read it properly. I am a man (actually, I'm a boy in a man costume), but thought that the poll was about which was better — Barbie or Ken — Barbie, obviously, whoever heard of a male doll? Apart from Action Man, but that's different.

Edit: And let's face it if Barbie was real — you would. Except for anatomical reasons you couldn't.

Hi Lynn, it's always good to see another female on the site, welcome along.

As with everyday life, occasionally the men step out of line and it's up to us females to give things a different perspective.

Well, they get that from me whether its wanted or not

Re: Barbie or Ken?

Its nice to see that women can be passionate about their cars, and join a forum to keep them informed...and have an input to a variety of topics.

Perhaps even pick up driving tips

NNNNoooooo I am not that chauvinistic honestly

Ladies spread the word....As I feel as men we could all do with seeing a womens perspective on cars, driving and life..

Where's the Eddie option

Good to see that there are Women with an impeccable taste in cars too.

A friend of mine has a Supra and actually met his now wife on the Supra forum. I feel sorry for their neighbours as they both kept their rather noisy Supra's.

Ever been a relationship come from AO???

Re: Barbie or Ken?

There's been a few women been and gone since I first started posting; I think the forum would be even better if there were more female members again.
