Well, I’m a woman. I agree that the FIRE-sphere is bro-heavy, but I agree—who cares? Numbers-wise, it’s the same deal.

Otherwise, women do have some special considerations—generally we make less, generally we live longer, and kids may or may not be more of an issue. And we’re often tasked with taking care of elderly parents.

But the basic philosophy is “spend a lot less than you make and invest carefully,” IMHO.

I don’t really see the point of Lady-FIRE, or Black FIRE, or Gay FIRE or whatever. Everyone has special circumstances of one sort or another that we need to address.
