Ladies In The Community
« on: June 15, 2014, 05:40:43 pm »

Thought I'd add this thread after an exchange between Johnson and farl4bit on this thread: https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/discussion-on-gocoin-bitcoin-shop/msg45389/#msg45389

I'm pretty sure that I've seen one other post by a woman this forum.  Are there any other ladies in the community?  I realize that crypto is a male-dominated space.  I'm hoping I can be included as a a participant who would receive the same consideration and respect that the male participants receive.  Believe me, I am much more than my appearance or my gender.  I appreciate compliments and kind words, but at the same time, I don't want that to detract from serious discussions or from how I am treated in this space.  I want to feel safe here, just as any other male participant would feel safe - as in, they don't have to deal with people judging them based on their physical appearance, but by their character and their intellect and the value that they add to achieving our goals.

I guess I needed to vent a little and I was wondering if there are any other ladies on the forum who I can relate with and find solidarity with, so that I don't feel like the "token female participant"?

Also, to respond directly to Johnson, I am a real person, that is my picture, thank you very much!

Welcome! And I hope everyone here makes you feel welcomed, too.

One well respected, veteran, active member is female - QBTC.

There's at least another female veteran nxter (with gender undisclosed in this forum profile, so I won't be the one bringing up her name) and of course there might be more.

The rest of us are either testosterone based, or gender-less specimens.

QBTC is a woman, so you're not the only one :)

There is a shortage of women in this space, for sure, and the traditional hetero male mentality that pervades all internet and tech culture is as present here as it is anywhere.

Your presence is welcome and very much needed, and the onus is on the rest of us to ensure that welcoming environment is always present.

In addition to finding other women in the Nxt space, you may also be interested in networking with other women in crypto spaces.  Here are some other resources:

Hi cobbaltskky,

Welcome to Nxt. Don't believe everything on the Internet! James jl777 profile says (s)he is a 14 year old female. Yet he/she/it age and gender do not matter when developing cutting edge finance technology.

I think we need a social network and chatting built into Nxt. People are tired of ads and censorship on Facebook and the like. I know NxServices had UDP chat up and running with MGW.

I'm not sure, but Johnson, you might have just gotten rejected again.

That is a new site I had never seen. Thanks for the reference. I think in time the Nxt software will have integrated chat, forum, and social network built into the client and all operating P2P.

This can only be from a woman. :D

Welcome! Every once in a while I have make a gender reference to claim my perspective, but all in all as a far as a bunch of guys hiding behind aliases go, this is a pretty decent bunch :)

Let me make you feel safe. :D

Btw. only 4 girls here. Why so less? I talked to a girl-friend lately and she said that crypto is too abstract to her. She is a visual guy and about crypto, there is nothing to touch or to look at. So, is this perception true for other women?

And more importantly: if so, what do we do about it? I cannot think of a way to make it more vivid.
