    Men are just naturally more gross, and generally don't care if the ladies check us out or not.

    Besides the above, just WHAT would we discuss? Truly, what do we have to say that is so personal we need to keep it closed. Which, of course, is the same argument some raised against starting the Women's Forum. (Standby for a blast from KB).

    We went through all of this in that one hour of which Joe Gardner reminds us.

    You want to talk about yer knob, go ahead and talk about yer knob, or your john thomas, or your dangly bits, or your pecker, or your... well, you get the point. The 'ladies' don't have to read it if they don't want to.

    Just don't include pics.

    Ah, Porky's... always good for a good ol' juvenile chuckle.

    I usually go with 'short arm' or 'thumper'.

    If it's about your body and it pertains to cycling and you're not shy about it then feel free to discuss. This goes the same for both men and women? People in computer forums talk about their power supplies, their CPU, etc. People in car forums talk about their engine and their interior and their dashboard, etc. On a bicycle, the human body is the engine. The human mind is the control center. They are as an important a part of cycling as anything can get. Why shouldn't you be able to talk about them? Why shouldn't men know about women's specific cycling issues and vice versa? You don't need to have a gender-specific forum to discuss physiology and cycling.

    Does it matter? As long as men and women alike are equally free to post their questions in the rest of the forums, the existance of a seperate forum has little impact.

    If you do a search there was a large debate but here is the short and skinny...as an example...

    "I need a saddle that is comfortable for a woman (insert excessive reason here based on things men don't understand physically)"

    First guys response

    "this one might help my gf likes it"

    second guys response

    "man I would kill to be your saddle for a day, can I see a picture"

    third guys response through the 150th response is similar in the incredible witt and humour that "men" can respond with. And no I am not being sarcastic, I watched this happen for a long time before the womens forum was implemented and often responded within the forums trying to figure out what guys got from being pigs online. All it does is prove how little true female social interaction they have.

    To the guys who would respond like number, this does now include you, and there are lots of us, but a forum for women was deemed required and has helped keep the 2 to 150th post down to nothing. Which I might add has been really nice to see.

    As for why mens or not mens. This is a male dominated forums and the discussion will always turn in that direction. In many ways women are way more personal and private then men so they have their place. In relative terms this is no different than various coaching camps in and around bc as a whole. There is NEVER a mens only class, one or two women show up. There is ALWAYS an option for a girls only camp, they are refusing applications because of how many women want/think/react and are coached differently. Fact of life. Not all women (my gf would never visit the womens forum, she can handle herself and holds no embaressment about 'issues', but a lot of girls I know would)

    Cheers

    Excellent example! Made me laugh. I was going to post an example of my own, but opted out. Something involving "OMGHI2U! BEWBIES!" Etc...

    Some people can't be, erm, polite about these things.

    ok i may not be as mature as the next guy BUT i know to respect a lady and not be disrespectful to them BUT my mother has always wanted me to be open minded and to speek of problems and to listen to others problems and learn from that.
    for example say my girlfriend wanted to get into biking(if that would ever happen) then i could help her pick out a seat and other bike specifics.

    we have been together since 6th grade so it will be our 4th anneverary this year
    o and also i still havent kissed her due to that she had to wait till she was 14 and i ALWAYS let her decide when the times right.

    Then you could simply ask the same exact question in one of the other forums as appropriate to the type of riding she would be doing. I actually think posting in the Women's Cycling forum would gather less responses because it would be a more limited audience. Even when it was open to everyone, questions that were posted in there could just as easily have been posted to more specific forums and gotten better responses. That could be one of the reasons why Women's Cycling became private. It underwent a change of focus. The fact of the matter is that it is what it is. We could sit around and argue all day about whether or not that forum should remain private or even exist at all but that would change nothing. You can still get women's issues answered in any of the public forums and there are some female members who feel more comfortable with having a private forum.

    also how would they really know who is a lady and who is a guy i mean someone could just say they are
    also wouldnt that be against the rules to have a private forum as in inequality or sexist or something similar to that
