As suggested in another thread let's see some numbers on it. I haven't included the different aspects of the hobby as these have been polled before, it's simply reflecting engagement with the 40k hobby as a whole.

Considering you'll be voting in anonymity, even if something as obvious as your sex is information you consider to be personal in real life, you have nothing to worry about voting here.

Not really. You don't have to post in the thread, and the poll is anonymous.
You don't even have to vote if you don't want to. Its not a census.

I selected male since that's what I usually am, but you should probably add genderfluid and such to it.

Actually transgender.
Despite the sarcasm from other people, it's chill to be recognised.

Though I suspect this entire poll and topic are a stab at some commentary or other. Or ammunition to prove a point.

I think it's just a check to see how many women are into the hobby. More a matter of curiosity than trying to prove a point or something.

I would admit I think it is exactly as said: wondering if it is pretty much an all guy thing or if there is hope in having some diversity in gender.
I find the topic comes up quite often when a behavior is observed the question is thought: "Is this a guy thing, or a gamer thing?"
So a diverse representation helps answer those kinds of questions.
Miniature enthusiasts are few enough and cannot afford to be anything other than inclusive.

Judging by the poll responses, it seems like a big majority of hobbyists are male. This also mirrors my anecdotal evidence-that there's only one real hobbyist girl at my FLGS. (There's another girl who's the girlfriend of a guy who plays, but she doesn't hobby or play herself.)

I find for gaming, a couple ladies come out to play Malifaux.
I have seen none for other tabletop.
About 1/4 the crowd is ladies for Magic the Gathering (~7-8).
That is what it is like in my area in Ontario Canada.

Could a point also be made that forum, net use and seeking out hobby discussion online, is also a more male activity?

To be honest i wanted to start this thread long ago on Dakka but i wasn't sure how people would view it and being anonymous was my go to for people not minding. I just hope the poll is taken fairly seriously and won't be sabotaged by some for silly reasons.

Regardless of the response to this thread, a method like this where people have to volunteer to give info, is not going to give you a result that's anything like representative of the actual demographics of the community as a whole, only the demographics of those who are enthusiastic enough about the subject to choose to participate.

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.
