AIRSOFT NERRRRDDDDSSS!!!!!!!!
It's all about habits. Most of us that have handled real weapons tend to bring those habits across to airsoft. It's not nerdy if you happen to be on the other end of the barrel when you're taking one of these pictures. You may not be pointing it at the camera man but often it's pointing somewhere, right? As Hoot so elegantly put it, "this is my safety, sir."

Not a whole lot, but there have been at least 2-3 at each larger event I've attended (sometimes more), and at least 1 at every smaller event. So there are female players out there for sure. Just not a whole lot.

Yeah, there were several women playing at BWII. The most I've seen at a single game. Then again, BWII was the largest game I've been to, so take that for what you will.

There were a few girls playing at Op Broadsword in Picton a couple of weeks back (about 3-4, I think), and I believe there were only 60-ish players in attendance. So proportionally, that may have been the highest female turnout I've seen to date at any game.

The venue is worthwhile playing at regardless what side you're on. But yeah, as soon as the US side fills up a bit, then they'll reopen the Cdn side. It's rather uneven right now.

Women should play airsoft, its a good idea.
I used to play paintball(don't hate i'm here now aren't i?)
and i brought a few of my friends to the field needless to say every guys head turned and i can honestly say my favorite comment was "theres a girl?" its a male dominated sport. I've also noticed the women pay alot more detail to everything and catch the small things that guys won't first time around.



a girls and gun calendar ?
sounds like my mad photo skills, trigger discipline and roster of models can help here!

Eh, 2 outta 3 ain't bad. Least, not in my books. I've talked with a few women about the sport just because they asked what it was and they were interested, too bad most of them don't reside in Canada. Tried talking to the girlfriend about it, but she seems more interested in text-spamming with her cell-phone and trolling Facebook for hours to no end amongst other things.

It is a shame, though. Seems like every time a woman shows interest in the sport, 6/10 guys crack open a beer, 4/10 light a smoke, 7/10 are bragging about their gun, and 10/10 just farted. Way to go us!

When you talk up the teamwork aspect, I've found that women tend to be more open to the sport, basically a teammate is a teammate
That said, there's still a larger group that singles out or mollycoddles female participants, the"you're a girl, you don't have a clue" brigade.
wanna validate the sport, be more inclusive.

I tough about starting a thread for the Airsoft Girls of Canada... But than, figured it would mostly be guys posting on it... lol so i restrained myself... lol There is more and more girls coming to games... And that is awesome... I love when a gf shows up, just to look, and i go up to her and give her a little pep speech and it makes her think a little more about playing... As for guys being shovenistic, i have not experienced that yet... I feel they treat me equally, and dont treat me like i have no place there... Or maybe i was just lucky and played with really cool people... lol

And there's also the "other" crowd. These seriously make me shake my head in wonder. They will either hesitate to shoot a female participant, or just not take a shot at all because "she's a girl". Or they'll shoot her (after hesitating) and apologize to her for doind so. Like WTF? Are you guys fucking serious??? This is just as bad or worse as the "you're a girl, you don't have a clue" brigade, if not worse.

Sorry people, but the second the game is on. I don't care if someone is male, female, or hermaphrodite. An opponent is an opponent, and their gender has been left behind the second they entered the staging area and started kitting up for the game.

A female player will get no special privileges from me in game for being a girl. If she's on my team, then I consider her a team mate on equal terms with anyone else. If she's on the other team, I will shoot her ass just as fast as I would any other opponent, and no apologies about it. The exception being if I happen to nail a painful face shot or something, and there, I would apologize just as quickly to a male player as a female player.

Seriously guys. The women that are playing this game are there because they want to play and can take it. They're not looking for special treatment because they're women. They've accepted the same risks of getting shot, welts, bleeders, etc as the rest of us. Having boobs doesn't make her any different than another player on the field.
