FIRE is mostly about math, addressing each individual's specific needs is well beyond the FIRE community.

Well, yeah, that was my point.

I mean, the lady that has to take care of her ‘fro—that’s not a FIRE issue, that’s a “hey, I need ideas for doing my ‘fro cheaper.”

I’m not convinced that I need a whole blog devoted to Lady-FIRE. I’m just a lady, who wants to FIRE. A share of an index fund costs the same for a dude or for me. The 4% rule works the same for a dude or for me. The dude may have longer life spans in his family, so we may have the same concerns about outliving our money. The dude doesn’t have to worry about the cost of tampons, but I can find info on saving $$ there lots of places.

I read the forums at Early Retirement Extreme. It’s bro-ish and has gotten a little weird re discussions of polyamory, but it’s still useful and/or motivating. (Not the polyamory part....). Then again, I like the energy and perspective men bring to things and don’t get turned off by raunchy comments and stuff. I know some women are, so in that sense I guess that’s why a Lady-FIRE blog might work. But for me—meh.
