    Inquiring minds want to know...
    Actually, this question is not meant as a condemnation of any one here. I'm just curious.
    Most men seem to welcome women into this hobby, and I, for the most part, have gotten wonderful support in my quest for HT knowledge. But sometimes I feel like I have slipped through the back door of some secret society. [​IMG]
    I have tried getting into the Martha Stewart crafts thing, but I'm just no good with a glue gun and doilies make me cringe [​IMG]

    If I have to explain to my two female roommates one more time how to use the remote, I'm gonna take all the HT gear and put it in my bedroom! (Wait, now there's an Idea!!![​IMG] )
    Seriously though, I think if more women got into HT, not only would there be fewer wars, but there would probably be another population explosion:b

    I only wish more women would gain an interest in HT. It's great when you can have a good indepth discussion with a member of the fairer sex which involves the latest DVD players and HD RPTVs to market. [​IMG]

    but we're smart enough to know when to use they're instead of their.

    (edit) beaten to the punch again.

    A women interested in HT is heaven to us. Few understand. My last girlfriend would always shrug it off to 'a male penis thing.' This is a HT, not a hot rod convertible [​IMG] .

    Women + HT = Good [​IMG]
    With many guys talking, you get many guy-topics, as is seen especially here in the "After Hours Lounge." But despite that, women are welcomed (even desire [​IMG] ). And if there were more women, they would better balance compensate for the testosterone-overload that can be seen on occaision.

    "I have tried getting into the Martha Stewart crafts thing"

    NNNNNNNOOOOOOooooo!

    you can't have both!!

    You can't be cool and like Martha Stewart, so stick to home theater.

    and Welcome to the HTF

    Welcome to HTF. I've learned much in my few short years here. I feel very fortunate that my wife is very much into the HT scene as I am.

    I love it when a woman shows an interest in and appreciation of HT and technical things in general. I value intelligence, and it becomes something good to share with her.

    I think it is great to have some female influences on the boards! I have to ask you this though, ladies - are the men in your lives into home theater as well, or do they like to crochet and cook? [​IMG]
