    I recalled instantly making the same observation;
    post #5 of http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/m...t-device-59846

    that "you can visualize my Kate Jackson lookalike riding, long dark hair trailing behind, running it through the gears.
    Horses or motorcycles; nothing more beautiful than when ridden by a woman."

    Is there support for a "Women" subforum? We just started a Tool Restorations subforum. A Basic Homemade Tools subforum is next up. After that, I'll probably split some new subforums out of the Tool Talk subforum; maybe start with a few like Machine GIFs, Cutaways, Catastrophes/Disasters/Explosions. Stuff that is tangentially tool related, that provides good grist for the discussion mill. Posts featuring women are obviously well-received here. This would give us an opportunity to expand into Off-Topic-ish discussions (which exist at all popular forums), without straying too far into political rants.

    The Women subforum could feature historical and modern photographs and vids of CLOTHED women. There are plenty of other places on the net to find the naked variety; and yes, a bathing suit counts as "clothes". There would be a tool tie-in, but it wouldn't be exclusive to only tool stuff. There would be things like women working, women in the military, and just GIFs featuring women.

    There simply aren't enough women here to be offended - we're likely well over 99% male, and that's common for DIY forums. I also 100% disagree with the current societal trend against what is termed as "objectifying" women; in fact I think it's culturally dangerous to downplay beauty of any sort.

    Sample content would look like this:


    WWII female Russian sniper group photo:

    These "women closing trunk door" vids were trendy a while back:




    Women working content would look like this:
    Switching clerk at the Western Union telegraph office. 1943.
    Fullsize image: https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/h...k_fullsize.jpg



    Example of automotive content with women, in historical context:

    Marilyn Monroe and 1951 Pontiac Chieftain:

    Hurst girls on race day:

    I wouldn't vote to initiate a forum, despite my "Horses or motorcycles..." [post #11 this thread] comment, a rifle or Pontiac is decent ornamentation as well.
    But. . .
    Personally, it's when a tie-in occurs, I find most compelling. A thread might be seen as objectification just as interjection could be. Not counting some of the Rosie Riveter photographs, the unstaged female equalizes their skill and emphasizes natural beauty. When discussing Rosie or counterpart Aerial Transport Pilots, those as subjects helped make both genders accept the fact women weren't predestined to a broom, menu orders, or answering phones.
    And I've known scores of astoundingly talented, interesting, beautiful and irreplaceable females.
    I viewed the content offered once more. The difference we all know hinges in our reaction; is it appreciation or thrill first?

    The Russian sniper ladies were a lethal bunch. The highest scorer, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, had 309 kills to her credit. More here...

    And yes, indeed, a women's subforum would be a very good thing. And, just in case you have any doubts about the ability of the fairer sex to do incredible feats of mechanical engineering, take a look at Cherry Hill's faboulous models.

    I have a copy of the book and can recommend it highly. It should be sold with drool catchers :-)

    I do prefer the pre 70's era ladies over the modern day alternative.

    Pic #2 with the 2 gals working the turret lathe reminded me of the many times My wife worked the tail turret while I worked forward on my old #5 W&S. You could really multitask those old machines. Just as happy hogging off as they were doing micro fine

    There is no way those dancers are moving on their own. The glide is too perfect the rotational spin is too perfect given that there is no discernable movement of their feet showing in the gowns or body movement betrayal It may be possible though if they are on roller skates I guess but even then the best of skaters usually show at least some betrayal of movement in their shoulders heads torsos or a slight flick of their gowns.
    I would love to watch a rehearsal for this

    I can't speak for that video clip but there is a type of Russian ballerina dance that is very similar. From my understanding it takes a hell of a lot of talent and practice to get it right and keep the movements just so.

    I'm guessing skill + shoes/stage interface + specialty garments.

    How else? Magnets?
