There are at least two areas & hobbies left that women want no part of: 1. Guns; Women generally don't like them and no amount of proselytizing is gonna change that. 2. Aircraft engine mechanic repair work. They don't like this because learning to do it requires learning math and physics which is frustrating and beyond the abilities of a lot of people. So anything they don't like, take refuge in.
I could not disagree with you more on both statements. I back up my comment with a lifetime of shooting, two daughters, a fair amount of time teaching and coaching women shooters, and more than twenty years in Naval Aviation.

No spelun and grammar is not my specialty. So please don't hurt my sensitive little feelings by teasing me about it.
