    …women should not need…

    Isn’t human nature funny. Even after millions of years we men still want to tell women what they want. 🙂

    Really tho, I can see both sides and I understand the points you’re making barrows.

    For me I think it’s more about organization and less about segregation. Havng a nice little forum/subforum for specific topics/categories is something we’ve tried to do (and I think we do pretty good) from the beginning. Why stop now.

    I also look at it like this….if we’re to truly be equal…we’re to be considered one (like Sparta haha)….

    And having said that…WE (not they) asked for a new category to help keep certain topics organized. So if WE are asking for it and it seems to make sense…how can I say no. 🙂

    There’s my :twocents:

    Now what are we calling it!?? I can create it in a matter of minutes. :thatrocks:

    ps. Barrows…what say ye about a harboot subforum in the boot forum? Would that be helpful for our HB’ers?

    At one time I was thinking that it would be a forum about any topic for women. Maybe that will be too broad, and for now we should stick to a gear related forum. Thats my biggest motivation, and it seems like it might be for others. Arkana, is that your primary motivation also? See how it goes first?
    What if it was under the gear headline and was just called ‘ladies gear.’ Subtitle, ‘share and learn about women’s specific gear here.’ Simple enough.

    Barrows, I’m looking forward to your gear review of Patagonia women’s briefs. I’d really be interested to hear your thoughts on the product based on its size and technical specifications as noted on the official website. We’ll just post it in the Gear section of the site…

    :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Quite possibly the best post here since Russman summarized the barrows/BGnight hard/soft debate.

    If there’s demand, then I fully support sb.com meeting that demand. :thumpsup:

    163W Jones Solution/Phantom Alphas/Dynafit TLT5s

    Chris: as mentioned in my last post, I have deferred my point of view to that of the women posting here. I would never presume to tell a women what she wants/needs! As their posts clearly show, they feel some special women’s forums would be helpful, so I am all for it.
    As for the hardboot specific thread, I see no need, for similar reasons (unless we could ban Brooks and employees of soft binding companies, hahahahahaha!).

    I would be happy to review the aforementioned women’s briefs for their aesthetic value as modeled by, perhaps, Jessica Biel, who is quite an accomplished rider. :thumpsup:

    Ok, the Ladies Gear forum is up.
    viewforum.php?f=79

    Squeezed it between the Gear Room and Splitboard Swap forums.
    index.php

    I added a couple sub forums too…hardwoods/softgoods so you can experiment. I can edit/add/remove easily so don’t hesitate to ask for changes. It will be a work in progress. 🙂

    Thanks and enjoy! :thatrocks:

    Can you put a hole in the ladies gear room so we can peek?

    Also “hardwoods/softgoods so you can experiment”- Awesome.
