Any attempt to appeal to women in general will likely just come across as sexist. Hell, it would be sexist, since you would be implicitly claiming gender is important in economic affairs.

Bitcoin as a system is about as egalitarian as it gets. The block chain doesn't care about your gender. It has no way of even knowing your gender.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

If you want women in Bitcoin, you'd probably have more success if you went after female gamers. Most Sims players are female, for example. You have the best chance of reaching people who already spend all day hanging out on the internet, not people who are into astrology and expensive shoes. Sheesh.

I would think that this community is one of the least sexist that I have every been in... I guess we put a much higher weight on competency than gender.  Also being pseudo anonymous means that there isn't any real barriers for either gender to participate.

For me, I try my best to judge people by what is important (are they good people for the job they are doing).  However, I hold the right for people to be stupid, and judge people for stupid reasons, like gender.


On the chick gamers view:  maybe a site that sells SIMS clothes and other cool gear would be attractive to such a demographic.  Smiley
Yeah, I'm not trying to accuse this community as a whole of being sexist. I really don't think it is.

Even those sexist-sounding statements, like we need to attract women by selling shoes, probably aren't sexist so much as somewhat clueless. I doubt any of us here have a degree in marketing, and even if we DID, how the hell would we know how to market Bitcoin to anybody? Let alone target certain demographics? It's just a hard sell, no matter how you look at it.

I tried getting all the people I know on face book to use it.
I posted something before the weusecoins vid came out.
then the vid when it came out.
when the value shot up over $5 I tried to get everyone to get atleast .02btc by signing up for bitcoin bonus (the only referral I feel comfortable sharing with everyone, since everything else is gambling, porn, or pyramids)
My xGF showed some interest, but wanted me to explain it more and why she should use it.
my grandmother tried to sign up, but got confused at some point.  She is also on a new win laptop and is used to her old eMac.
no one else showed much interest

Set up the same thing..

There is no glass window for success if noone gives a crap what sex, colour, height, age or religion you are because they can not see you.  Talk about an even playing field.

Women are just not interested in Bitcoin as a concept.

I think the problem is that for most people that are not tech-savy, bitcoins are to hard/confusing to even get started. As we all know, generally men are more tech-savy then women. In many technical jobs that I have had, it seems the ratio of men to women is 20:1. I think it has to do with how we grow up, men are more likely to play on a computer. This may change as more and more kids get into social networking and such. Although, everything has been dumbed down for them so much that they my not try to spend the time to learn anything.

Women will come, once they see a use for the currency.

For some reason, first movers tend to be men?

Yep I'm in da place !!  Cheesy

I hope I will contribute more and more, and take a little (but lovely) place in this forum  Wink
Welcome to the club!

Hopefully the stereotype will start changing now.

It's interesting that even though this is the second woman posting in this thread, people keep on complaining Tongue

I don't see how telling someone to fuck off is the same as crying.

Read through this forum.  Plenty of guys get emotional about posts on the internet.  In fact, John Doe, I could probably dig up some posts by you that could be considered "emotional" responses.  People get pissed off and upset about posts all the time, regardless of gender.

How may billionaires are female? How many economists? How many fortune 500 CEOs? Gimme a break. I'm happy there are so few female bitcoiners. This forum is full of enough economic illiterates, crybabies,  and crackpots as it is.  We need chicks contributing more noise the way we need weaker cryptography.

I am an Anarchist-Capitalist.
The comments here are pretty sexist; but I agree with most of the sweeping generalizations.
99.8% of my friends are Men for all of the reasons stated in this post.
I would like to think there are other Women out there like me.

Woman, but hesitated to post it because most who make an issue of saying it our of any context, rather than just being it are AWs and trolling for special attention.

Yes all the sexist comments are so awful because we know that women, on women dominated forums would never make sexist comments about men. Men integrate through rough play, women exclude. Girls who cannot take an Indian Burn don't get in the clubhouse. No special rules. If the play gets rougher than the boys had to put up with- and we decide your clubhouse is not worth it because it's full of stupid boys anyway.

The reality is my gender has been a non-issue on the Bitcoin forums.

That being said I think there are gender issues behind the use and marketing of Bitcoin. Bitcoin relies on keeping track of your wallet.dat file- yet no man ever knows where his wallet is without asking a woman- does this mean we will control the new economy?

Also, I thought real men did not carry little coin purses? Even credit cards are considerably less impressive then a neat wad of hundreds in a money clip. Are you at all concerned about the perception of Bitcoins as not only geeky- but the virtual equivalent of a man-bag/murse? ;-)
