Always when I go spotting to different airports over the world, I met spotters but it are always guys never spotting girls. What is the reason that there are no spotting girls? Or am I wrong? Are there female spotters?

I spot but you probably won't see me unless you are in Milano or Lugano. I think that more and more girls will get interested in aircraft in general as times chenges(I got intertested in spotting when I was six because my uncle was a pilot) .

Yes, we do go spotting. In fact, I met a woman at the SEA spotting park who had to drag her husband to the park and she explained to him what kinds of airplanes they were seeing.
Unfortunatly for Jottier, I'm sure wer're not the type he is looking for, young, long-legged, stary eyed. In fact I would probably be able to have him for breakfast and have enough room for a dozen dougnuts 8^)=).
It is true that girls seem more interested in horses and shopping, but many of us who are really true to ourselves, instead of buying into that cultrual gender role crap, find enjoyment in airplanes, powerful engines and even fishing!

1) "guys never spotting girls".....hmm.....maybe they're not looking for girls??? Or maybe not looking in the right places!
2) I wouldn't use the term "spotting girls" too loosely, people might take it wrong.
3) Oh, I don't know, my almost-3 year old daughter loves spotting airplanes. Everytime she sees one, she says 'airplane', and makes airplane sounds.
