    Because, last time I checked, we were all human, and that seems to be a pretty prominent issue no matter what dressing you put it in.....

    Somewhat (stress somewhat) interesting that the initial assumption was that most posters here are male ...

    As Schade points out: what difference does it make in the realm of ideas?

    It's not an assumption. It's obvious.

    I see a practical need, as opposed to ideological need, for more female members. There's a part of New York City that is under-represented on this site in subjects that women tend to be more knowledgeable about than men. To name a few: dance events, the ballet, the opera, interior decorating, entertaining, child care, shopping, fashion, beauty salons... and so on and so on...

    The Questions & Answers Forum would especially benefit from more women. To drive the point home, ya'll answer this:

    "I live in Kansas and I'm coming to Manhattan (for the first time) to be the matron of honor at my neice's wedding party. My hair is chin-length, straight, thin, and mostly gray. My neice only knows of "village" hair salons. Where can I go so that I'll look fashionable enough for Manhattan, but classic enough when I return home?"

    See?

    Arrow Another drawback of a heavily male site

    Just today, TipsyMcStagger came on and saw that nobody answered her(?) question on people's firsthand experiences with laser hair removal places:

    http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/sh...357#post134357

    I guarantee that if the site had a higher percentage of women, TM would have gotten at least one excellent recommendation by now.


    Now ya boyz gonna hav 2 deel wit lotsa hairie ladies in dis town.

    I wouldn't necessarily look to a woman for the first half of that list.

    I wouldn't necessarily, either. It's just women on average vs. men on average. My apologies to those men who are well-entrenched in any of those activities.

    Oh Ryan, you left out the first item! How could you? I thought you agreed to go ballroom dancing once a month...
