ZS Male to Female ratio...

Post by TheBombDiggity » Sun Jan 31, 2010 8:02 pm

I was just curious what the ratio of male to female members there are here. I auto-assume more males will be here but I'd like to know how many females are here also :]


Sorry if this has been posted before, I didn't see it.

10:1 of the posters, maybe.

It's gotten as high as 8:1, but then the oafs show up and run the ladies off.
Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?

Hahaha not a good image!


Well I'm glad to say I won't run :]


I know that I get veryyyyy strange looks when at work (I work for Starbucks) when I'm talking about Zombie Squad or zombies. As a matter of fact I get mocked not ONLY for the zombie portion, but because I'm a girl!

Who says girls can't be prepared? :]

Upon voting, it was at 50/50, I say we close it immediately and pretend that's a good enough sample to project results from.

i voted. i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that out of the 6 or 7 forums/message boards i browse, this and crackberry are gonna have the best chance at having almost even representation of males/females.

i believe this to be due to the fact that the ladies are gonna want to find a nice group of burly type A dudes to be a nice meat shield. self preservation is priority zero. :lol:

EDIT: poll shows less than 20% women, of the total votes cast anyway. we'll see. depends on the turnout. a census doesn't do much good if you can't get everyone, right?

I guess people have forgotten that a great many "females" on the interweb are actually fat, 38 year guys, who live in their mothers basement...

1) what has been seen can not be unseen. expect a bill for compensation for the mental anguish you've just caused me.

2) the rule "pix or it didn't happen" applies to ALL girls on the internet. or as my friends say, "on the internet, everyone is male until proven otherwise"

I think there are probably a lot of women that post here ( I know a few), but they don't let it be known for fear of the Oaf Patrol.

Heck, there was one person I was talking with that I thought was a guy for the longest time, then I found out "he" was a "she". I :lol: , particularly cause we both made some rather crude comments about women in PMs. lulz


And heck, if it wasn't for Kathy, I'd be one fo those "bullets and no beans" people. Thanks KinFL!!!!

Like on most forums, usernames don't always have a Pronoun associated with them. Some of us are pretty obvious... in theory. And tho I was once mistaken for a woman while in a jewelry store due to my long hair and being seen from behind, I am in fact the Male of the species. I did almost finagle a 10% discount from the store by pretending to be overly offended, but my good guy side let it slide. That and the over priced crap wasn't worth it even with the discount. ;)

Our local chapter has a much higher contingent of girls than the internet site here would suggest, and last year at Z-con we had about 30% women.

So, still kind of a sausagefest but not embarrassingly so. And we definitely have better representation than any other survival/disaster community that I'm aware of.

But internet-wise, yeah. It's hopeless. Most of the girls in the local ZS chapter think the internet forums are a big fat waste of time.

You may have more women reading than you think. I have sent quite a few here who are reluctant to do anything more than lurk.
I keep encouraging them to post for heaven's sake!
