In practise though..uh oh.
she would blur your vision and judgement by sitting on the edge of her bunk with legs dangling 'playfully' whilst skirt is 'accidently' up over her thighs. She also would cause tension in the air leading to frustration as she noncholantly wipes sweat of her clevage and bends over to wipe that 'smudge' of oil of her shoe.

I think women are traditionnally forbidden to be submariners in m—any countries if not all, are they? I don't know why they can be sailors and not submariners cos once you're at sea there's not much difference, are there?
At least, I guess women are allowed to play sub sims!

i really dont think that if there are any women here,theyre going to reply to a poll started by someone called "booty snapper". maybe you should change your name to something less likely to arouse their suspicion,like "get your tits out" or "whos your daddy". i am interested to see if there are any.i doubt it tho.i dont know any women who like computer games.

Well, of course there are women who like computer games. There are many. But I doubt any of them liked Silent Hunter.
Most of the time is games which are, I don't know how to explain it, but they are like "Monkey Island" or things like that. It is, that kind of adventure games.

I stumbled on this story about the Harvard President saying women lack in natural ability in mathematics and science... could this be true? could it be also why there are so few women interested in simulations?

Thanks for the link.

I think, anyway, that the key of the subsim problem is different; women could be better than men in mathematics and science (at least, most of them are better than me) but, speaking of games, militar simulations aren't in their taste.

Yep. They seem to find it quite disgusting, or at least boring. I rember one calling a guy sadist and being alarmed only because he found fun in watching that entertaining Bruce Willis films in where he kills everybody and makes some jokes while doing so. But in fact no blood appears during the film.

Maybe it has to do with the ancient pre-historic societys where man hunted and women and child searched for vegetables? It is genetically imposed this way? Who knows...

Interesting article. Just don't show it to Marie Curie (actually she's been dead quite some time, but she discovered Radium, and pioneered radioactive experiments), or to the female scientist who was the chief architect behind the recent probe to Titan, or to my daughter, who teaches high school math and is current working on her PhD.

I guess there are no girls in this forum...

but I do remember, before I moved to Florida, I had two girlfriends (friends who were girls, not dating them) who were sisters and when Battlefield 1942 came out they would come over and watch me play and were completely entranced by the game, which blew me away because my girlfriend at the time absolutely hated any game that wasn't The Sims, and she eventually hated even that game after she had spent tons of time building the perfect house and I went in while she was at work one day and started a fire in her Sim house kitchen that burned the whole thing down and I "accidently" saved it somehow.

(I think subconsciously I did it because I finally got her interested in a video game but she liked it soo much she was hogging up all of my playing time and that was the only way to get her to stop)

These chicks were cool as hell, they loved to play video games. But sub sims? I think its possible that there isn't a SINGLE FEMALE SUB SIMMER IN THE WHOLE WORLD!

But maybe after SH3 comes out in May 2006, all that could change.

I will second the nod towards girls lacking in science and mathamatics. Of course there are excetions to every rule.

I'm not sure if you would consider it math or science but have you ever seen most women try to read a map? I will state again that there are always exceptions, but they often seem for the most part clueless about it. My one really good friend that is a girl (not a girl friend), when I wanted to find out where she lives a while after meeting her. She couldn't point out on mapquest where she lives even though I had her part of town in view. She didn't have a clue. I only figured it out after stepping her through a bunch of questions which eventually led me to locate it. This is a very bright girl we're talking about too. She has been offered to be sent to France or Portugal as a forigen exchanage student on quite a few occasions. She's won honour awards in school too. All that yet eluded by a simple map.

I have another example of a girl in my Geography class way back in grade 9. Straight A student in the upper portion of the honour roll yet still needed my help with maps. A commoner like me with a luke warm grade having to help her. Too bad I couldn't use that to my advantage. But I dont' think she could have been any homlier if she tried.


I'll point out too that I think girls/women have a general disinterest in war. Even the ones that like action movies and don't mind the violence and what not. Once again probably dates back to the days of primitive man.

Of course they are. But that doesn't mean they're wired that way from birth. Often girls are brought up by their parents to fit a certain role, and that model doesn't include map-reading. It's the same with boys: have you ever watched a man try to knit?

Girls and boys are fitted into gender roles by their parents and by society as a whole. Go into any department store and you'll find that baby clothes are neatly divided into boy's and girl's clothes. There's no reason for it - it's not like girls and boys are that different in terms of fit until they reach puberty, but the divide exists from age 1 in terms of clothing manufacturers and clothes stores. The boys section has sweatshirts with sports themes, blue jeans and a general blue theme, while the girl's section has knitted cardigans with flower designs, dresses, and a general pink theme. For a baby, dresses are completely useless: they ride up, they're cold, and they don't hold the nappy (or diaper) up, yet parents buy them nevertheless, because the gender role is so deeply entrenched that it takes no notice of what's smart or practical. Girls have to wear girl's clothing, so that's what the parents buy.

Similarly, with presents. It doesn't matter how far the parents might go to prevent the gender-role thing. Society will impose it. My daughter already has dolls, even though my wife and I hate them. She has pink, frilly dresses even though my wife and I both loathe pink and frills. Our friends, family and neighbours give these things as presents.

Another thing is peer pressure. We've already run into other kids who can't figure out why my daughter is dressed 'like a boy'. Note - we don't dress her like a boy. We dress her casually and practically in clothes that can take wear and tear. In other words we dress her for being a toddler. The fact is, what's considered to be "boy's" clothing is less restrictive, and more hard-wearing than the traditionally "girl's" clothes. If you go with the gender-role thing, it makes it harder for girls to interact fully with other kids: for example, wearing dress shoes rather than sneakers makes girls appear clumsy and uncoordinated on the playground. It's not because girls are naturally clumsy - it's because dress shoes aren't designed to be flexible enough for play.

All these things work towards fitting kids into the gender roles that society expects. This is why women can't read maps, and why men refuse to ask for directions. It's not that we're hard-wired that way. It's because society has trained us that way.

So let me get this straight...

You would like it if women were more interested in playing games, yet the only woman who was interested in actually playing had to be stopped because she was taking away from your playing time? Also, it was okay that you destroyed her saved game because it was a game (The Sims) that you didn't consider all that worthy?

I think it's also interesting to note that the two women you thought were 'coolest' were only interested in watching you play the games. You don't mention whether they played them. It seems to me that you prefer women to be passive observers rather than active players.

It's no wonder that women don't play if, when they try, some guy comes along and destroys their campaign game. I wonder how you would have reacted if someone came along and deleted every save in the games you played, just so they could get more time on the computer. If it happened enough, you'd probably consider computer games a waste of time too.

Your example is a case of women being edged out of a hobby by gender-roling and outright selfishness. It says more about your attitude to women than it says about their attitude to gaming.

Are you talking about Die Hard? If so, I have to disagree. There's a lot of blood in that movie (just consider the broken glass scene and the writing 'HO-HO-HO' in blood on the dead terrorist's sweater), and it is indeed a sadistic movie, and anyone who had been spared the schlock that appears in Hollywood movies and TV would probably be alarmed that people find such violence entertaining. I find it somewhat alarming, and I'm used to it.

It is hard wired from birth as to what we are and are not good at. Girls are good at doing lots of things at once, eg cooking, ironing massaging ect... ok ok joke lol

No but seriously they are, its proven scientifically. Men on the other hand are best at focused things. We can do one thing better then women, and women can do 5 things better then us. Its thought to stem from our beginnings, when men would hunt and have to concentrate on hunting, and women would bring up children, cook, build things like the house and clothes ect and many other things. It is hard wired but things may change with current society, but it will take a long time to change no doubt.

Ps women are bad at map reading because of a spacial awareness thing, makes them bad at reverse parking too (i have yet to find a girl who can reverse park!!)

Check up on it, female brains and male brains. You can even do tests to find out which type you have as there are always exceptions to the rule. I have a friend who hates games, and when he did the test he had a female brain. (coinkydink?)

I also dont think its a dislike of war which puts most girls off, as my girlfriend loves war movies, i think most girls just find computer the idea of computer games pointless. Though i can only talk of my girlfriends. Once you get them playing they love driving games, fighting games all sorts. I think its just they are less predisposed to take the step into computer games. (look at japanese society, girls there are crazy about computer games)
