    I just read a discussion where a member was asking his Tele Brothers for help. This made me wonder if there are any Tele Sisters here? Is this a Men only club?

    Yes it is. Now get out.


    I mean, surely there has to be at least one "sister" guitarist here.

    There are a few sisters who openly identify as sisters, and another few who do not make their gender immediately apparent. This being the Internet, I understand why.

    Not very many women members. The misogyny and rancid reek of testosterone drives them away.

    In other arenas of our civilization misandry is just as pervasive.

    There are female guitar players, lots of them, but not all the many on here. Could be what Notmyusualuserid said.

    For as long as we play guitars with our fingers — which are pretty much ubiquitous across the human-race — please let’s keep this a gender-neutral forum. And that should include not asking whether anyone who hasn’t identified their gender publicly to say what it is.

    most guitar stuff is very rock centric and rock has been a boys club for most of its life, and the board culture echoes it. the types of rock that are friendly to non-males usually aren't super gear oriented, or if they are, about other types of gear or sounds than bread and butter guitar stuff. i'm sure women are still in the minority on reddit guitar subs, offsetguitars, etc, but probably a lot more of them than here.

    That's quite a paranoid delusion you are living there. Your response has the rancid reek of mental disorder

    You're saying that hypocrisy is an acceptable way of life?

    There are a good chunk of women on this site. Not a majority by any means. A few of them are guitar builders as well.

    OK, I'll play.

    Give me an example of misandry that pervades our society.

    I’ve often wondered if it would be a good idea to have a lady’s forum on TDPRI moderated by a female. I’m sure if the shoe was on the other foot, I too would feel intimidated by the boys club nature of things. Some ladies, most notably @FenderGyrl off the top of head, seem to get along just fine and are well respected by the “boys”.

    I’m not so sure about the characterization of maleness having a “rancid reek of testosterone”. To me, that reeks of self loathing.

    Or self-awareness.

    Or even hyperbole.
