    Hey!

    I've been here for a few months but never introduced myself, I'm Rachel and I'm from a tiny country called New Zealand! I'm here because I want to reach my dream of getting $1k (some people are laughing at this) lately I have just been reading threads, and although I only have about $100 to invest I think I'll try my best! I've just finished exams, and have a 2 week holiday so will be on here quite a lot:)

    PM if you want to know anything else! I'm always down to meet new people and learn from all you guys!

    ps the girl in avi is just someone off tumblr, not me :c

    Not another one who feels the absolute need to let everyone know she is/is pretending to be female :(.

    I think they just do it to get more attention / get people to be nicer to them, thinking they're female.

    Really? No.


    Maybe if people stopped reacting to it, then it wouldn't be an issue.



    back on topic please.

    So, the choices are: pretend to be a man, or get accused of seeking attention if you're open about being female? Good to know, fellow bloke.

    Sorry about this Rach, welcome to the forum.

    I guess that means you haven't received the first PM yet ? ;)

    Welcome to the forum, my advice: set a bigger goal than $1000

    I mean.. I don't care if you're a girl, I just don't see a point in making it THAT obvious.

    Unless Kinlee said "what's up ya'll, it's yo gurl Kinlee coming atcha!" in her very first thread.

    Either way, welcome to BHW!

    Nah, about 25% of us on here are female although you couldn't tell. After all, there are no girls on the internet, amirite? Most people here won't even notice the difference as long as you're reading around, doing groundwork and not expecting to be spoon fed. It can get a bit boisterous but the guys here are really great about offering advice to smart newbies willing to work and learn.

    Well the guys that start cat calling and woman bashing are obviously huge reddit users or just havent't become fully mature yet.

    Sorry you ladies have to deal with that.

    Anywaaaaays welcome to the forum :D

    Thats two out of many possibilities....

    Why did the gender have to be put in? A simple "Hey guys, new the to the forum" would have been fine. As she says in her quote below she has had a negative experience with it before and instead of being a little more conservative she does something similar again on her welcome post...

    To my knowledge Kinlee waited a while until people got talking to her in her journey thread before she revealed she was female and she is now a highly respected member of the forum and is now open about being female without being accused of being an attention seeker.

    Moving onto another female on the board. SocietyGirl, although she has had negative attention for being made a mod extremely quickly and not knowing the forum rules she was meant to be enforcing I don't recall anyone ever saying she was attention seeking and now she is a forum mod.

    So there are two live forum examples to blow one of your two presented "options" out of the water.

    Although I don't agree with the comment below, posting a title like she did will usually get some form comment like it. Girls are well aware of this and are usually a lot more conservative online leading me to presume she is in fact trying to use her gender for attention or she is actually a guy up to no good.

    And before you try to White Knight for her again, females should be able to be open with their gender on the board but there are much better ways to do it then she has.
