WELCOME TO THE WOMENS FORUM

Welcome –verb (used with object) 1. To greet the arrival of (a person, guests, etc.) with pleasure or kindly courtesy. 2. To receive or accept with pleasure; regard as pleasant or good; to welcome a change.

This forum was set up for women to discuss topics related to the sport of triathlon. Everyone, men included, is welcome to post a related topic or respond to any topic, however, posts that are not welcoming or supportive will be removed by forum moderators and you may be banned from posting in the future. Respectful debate and discussion to increase knowledge is the key to a great conversation.

Supportive—adjective 1. Giving support. 2. Providing sympathy or encouragement 3. Providing additional help, information, etc. 4. Medical. Helping to maintain a normal physiological balance.

Please note: When topics and/or posts become offensive we will post a verbal warning or the thread will be LOCKED if people cannot respectfully discuss the topic. Under special circumstances (and after discussion amongst the moderators) posts and/or threads may be deleted.

Political topics belong in the Lavendar room, the moderators do not wish to moderate political discussions.

WHY WOMEN WANT THEIR OWN FORUM: there will be no justifications on this topic now or in the future. The purpose of this forum is not to argue about or to defend women's issues and participants will not be required to defend themselves or their right to a place to discuss topics related to women.

IS IT OK TO FLIRT WITH FABULOUS WOMEN POSTING ON THIS FORUM? If you like women, then we like you too. If you are a misogynist, then you will get banned. In other words, it's fine to flirt but don't try getting aggressive or rude. This isn't a singles bar and we aren't drunk.

The sport of triathlon attracts many athletic, intelligent, charming, and successful women. Welcome to the party. We're here to celebrate.

It should be Women's forum, with an apostrophe "s." Women is already the plural of woman. You want the plural possessive form.

Thanks for letting us know what we want. But we don't (want it). We'll keep it like it is.

Just a quick question, maybe it's been covered before and if so I apologize.

Why not make it a women's ONLY forum? My soon to be wife is a regular on an all-women's running forum and it seems to work great. They're a great community and really nice to each other and they don't have to deal with skanky guys flirting with them and giving them shit.

I would think the women around here might benefit from not having to deal with the guys all the time and would have a more productive, information-sharing experience.

Because some (most?) of us definitely do not want that. We would then miss out on the fantastic resources of people like Holden Cain.

Dear Cathy,

I'm a little bit saddened by this new forum (womens forum). I hope it will not take away from all the great interactions between all slowtwitchers (whatever their race or sex or nationality) that takes place in the main forum. As a general rule, I think too many places to go to makes it harder to keep pace.

Furthermore, how am I going to justify going on a womens forum ? No later than this week, there was a fantastic discussion on Slowtwitch about running while pregnant, which I very quickly forwarded to two friends who are pregnant at this very moment and I knew would be very interested in this (they didn't know the existence of Slowtwitch, and I think still don't know what it really is). Nevertheless, one of them quickly replied to me, saying thank you, and by the way how come you go lurking on websites that talk about women running while pregnant ? I could gently explain to her that it was a general triathlon-related website and that I happened to see this thread and thought of sharing it with them. NOW WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO SAY :-)

 Taking care of ourselves, as women, is a full-time responsibility; one that doesn't end with us individually, but that extends to our sisters, friends, children and beyond. How we behave, treat ourselves and allow others to treat us can be a powerful teacher.

The topic of violence against women and what we can do to help stop it often gets brushed over and buried by more crowd pleasing topics. I've often thought of it as an epidemic trying to scream, but unfortunately silenced and ignored by too many due to its ugliness. I believe it's time to yell louder.
