I agree what you identify with is quite "epic" but it does seem to poke fun at some rather honest responses I would hate to discourage.
Because if I had the choice, I would always be "The Batman".
"Harley" a close second.

From my experience I reckon it's probably about a 9.5:1 ratio of men to women, generally within the wargaming hobby. Although very difficult to tell of course from logins on a forum!

Nothing can come of this but baseless speculation.
But the discussion on this baseless speculation is priceless.
It was a sad thing when my love of my life will have nothing to do with the hobby... it may be for the best.
I think we are rather "special" as it is as fans of 40k, one would speculate women are "smarter" than that.


I have a couple of female friends that will happily play board games (casual stuff like Carcasonne, but even more 'man-oriented' games like Zombiecide and Spartacus), but there is no way they would ever get involved with something with a tape measure or an army list. Although having said that I have male friends who are exactly the same, so not quite sure why I made that point!

I've been saying for years that we need more women in this hobby, and GW keeps not releasing plastic Sisters. I'm of the opinion that If there was a predominantly female army to play (Besides Nids and Eldar), with some proper marketing to the demographic you'd see a shift in that ratio. My 11 year old daughter's eyes lit up when she saw Celestine + Geminae painted and immediately asked me if there was a whole army like that she could play. I said yes, but they're all metal and mostly out of stock everywhere, She pouted until I did a squad of Seraphim to tag along and now she regularly plays Inquisimunda with them. If they had plastics she could grab an infantry box every few weeks by squirreling away allowance money 'til she could play full scale 40k, but as it is she'll be lucky to field 2000 points by the time she starts high school.

Poll threads don't really have an expiration date unless they are tied to a specific date/time (like talking about a particular edition of 40k, for example), especially as polls in this forum get cycled back onto the front page blog roll.

It could, but said point would be wrong.


Not really, males tend to use forums more than females who use social media more. Actually there are even particular leanings in social media. Facebook is used more often by females than Twitter, for example.

With regards to the poll, I'm too old for that stuff, I just go by my chromosomes, it's all we had. Plus, dudes really turn me off.

It has purpose-grown dangly bits attached to it that, while useful for their given application, have vastly more importance placed upon them in society than really should be when you consider that everyone is the same as me.

Indeed. Whoosh. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you know the difference between sex and gender, and thus why the poll is worded like it is.

Maybe he's tolerating the question being asked while letting you know he believes gender identity is an artificial and contrived distinction with no basis in fact. Maybe he is also letting you know polls like this are somewhat condescending as anyone who has spent time on Dakka realizes female representation is less than 1%. The OP is asking this to try and make other people feel bad.

Essentially yes, but tbh my militancy has rather dropped off since I posted the original comment, so I'm not gonna bother having the argument.

Based on posts on Dakka I'm fairly convinced that transgendered female miniatures gamers outnumber CIS female miniatures gamers by a significant margin. Which has me wondering what the ratio of transgender vs CIS female miniature gamers is? No agenda, just curiosity.
