There are more women than ever interested in Aviation and that’s a great thing, I’ve flown with many good female pilots over the years
A more accurate statement would reflect
on this site’s (wonderful) propensity to
be more than a little nerdy at times and
that characteristic is not the most common
attraction for the females among us
^ believe me, I'm 100% nerd and 100% female but I don't think true female nerds are what men are looking for either.
Somebody asked me about what was going on with the Boeing 737 max today. I nerded out so hard the surrounding crowd dissipated and the only person remaining was the guy who inquired about it in the first place. I even overwhelmed the guy who used to work for Boeing on the subject...
I see myself as 50% to 100% nerd. The older I get the less I care about my (any) level of nerd. However, I am also very girlie and love all the girlie stuff, my life is compartmentalised, with some overlap. I wouldn’t wear a dress to go plane-spotting, that just isn’t practical, but if I was, for whatever reason, it wouldn’t stop me standing by the airport fence if I happened to pass by the airport and had spare time.
I also think nerdiness comes down to trust. If I nerded out and the crowd dissipated like that, it would freak me out a little, although sometimes people can be subtle, it can be difficult to see when to call closing time. My own experience and point of view. This is why going online can be easy street, particularly on forums with an edit and delete function.
I agree, I don’t think men are looking for true female nerds, but I am sure they enjoy their company and spending time with them all the same.
It’s so good that more and more women are getting involved in aviation, they’re not on this site though it seems; reading maybe, but not participating.
I have to curb my inner nerd more often than
I’d admit but not as much as I should
