Aww... watch it to the end.

The end has a twist. It's funny.

Well, it is as humorous as the topic could be.

I have had to endure this stuff all my life. I hear this stuff all the time.

I don't even tell people I spend all my spare time backpacking, hiking, woods walking, nature photography, getting a fly fishing line wet, canoeing and more. I actually have snowshoes for enjoying outdoors in winter.

I participate in forums and men tell me what a great guy I am!

Common' this lady is funny. It is tongue-in-cheek. But real.

I am a girl.

I've met lots of women that are great outdoor companions. Connie is one of them ;)

The way some of them handle a knife scares me :o They handle the knives better that some guys I know. :mrgreen:

In all those knife-and-gun ways I am a big sissy.

As a grown-up, I am a dead shot with any gun outshooting any man, on a challenge, with his own gun. I shot right-handed. I am left-handed. At the end of the day, when it was pointed out that I am left-handed, I said, "Dad always said never let anyone see how good you can shoot".

Dad called me Annie Oakley, right before he asked me to shoot a real target: a small bird sitting on a branch so far away I could only see when dad pointed out the tree, the branch, and along the branch. I shot it, in the center of the breast. The bird fell. Dad got there first. I got there to see the tiny dead bird in the palm of dad's hand. The tears lept from my eyes. I cried the rest of the day and I was still sobbing inconsolably at night. My parents and my brother were disgusted.

For backpacking, my "carry" is a grocery store Zip-It for opening pesky food packaging and a tiny folding Trango Pirahna Alpine knife for everything else.

I have been in tough situations in the city. However, I only used just enough of my training to get away from the assailants. My U.S. Army trained brother couldn't believe it, but he uses his training the other way from me. I only want to escape harm.

zelph is fortunate: his wife likes camping.

I would say that is exceptional. I don't know any other women who like the outdoors, not even in Montana.

They decorate their house, get their hair done at the beauty parlor, cook, quilt or garden, maybe gossip. That's it.

There are some girls on Whiteblaze that look like they can hold their own on any trail. One that comes to mind has a name like "Kickassgirl" she's from Ontario, Canada. She sent me some Moose Jerky in exchange for a variety of Ramen noodles. She said they are not available up in her neck of the woods. She's "trail worthy" :D

The whole thing about humor and light-sarcasm is to desensitize stereotypes.

As for me, I have never had a stereotype make a good "fit".

You're left handed. All lefties are good outdoors folks. ;)

I don't recommend shooting little birds Annie/connie Oakley ;)
