FOR THE GIRLS

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) v. 1.0

Q. What's the deal with this board?

A. It is one example of what author Virginia Woolf called “a room of one's own.”

Q. Huh?

A. Woolf wrote a piece called “A Room of One's Own,” in which she said, among other things, that in order to write (i.e. speak freely and creatively) a woman must have a room of her own. And that is what FTG is. It's a place on TMF for female Fools to talk, knowing that this room is their own.

Q. Who started FTG? I noticed that this board is in the Investing Clubs folder.

A. No one remembers. It was appropriated, or rather, since women are gatherers, it was gathered circa 2001 by some girl Fools who wanted a place to talk about only girl stuff.

Q. What do you talk about here? Tampons? Politics? Sex? Lip gloss? Feminist literature? Finding pants that fit?

A. Yes.

Q. Are you a bunch of ugly lesbians?

A. We are a bunch of fat ugly bearded lesbian man-haters.

Q. May men and boys post here?

A. No, they may not.

Q. That's not fair.

A. There are myriad TMF boards frequently mainly by men. You may already know of some. Many boards have unwritten rules and codes of behavior. We have few of either, and none is regularly enforced except one: posting here is “for the girls.”

Q. Is there a “For the Guys” board?

A. Yes. http://boards.fool.com/Messages.asp?mid=16867859&bid=115875&days=365

Q. Come on, let's get going. We were supposed to be there an hour ago.

A. You're not wearing that, are you?

In a perfect world, this would be true. However, by posting on TMF, you have given your express permission for your words to be read by any registered Fool, and that includes cross-posting links. However, if another poster makes slanderous or harrassing comments about you on the other board...well, that's another story, but for now let's not go there.

redsavina,

Elapsed time from posting FAQ until first suggested change: 18 minutes. <sigh>
