So I had a long discussion with a coworker about who makes a better photographer, girls or guys. Seeing as how this forum (and a great deal of the others I read) have a girl to guy ratio of 2 to 5 billion, it would seem that photography is a male dominated "sport".
Why? The female photographers I know have all been very social and easy going. Most of the male photogs are pricks, territorial and conceited. I know very few male photogs that are friendly and happy to help others with their photography.
I think guys are just more tech oriented than girls. None of the women photographers I know care about camera specs or what's rumored to be released unless they are actually in the market for new gear. The guys are always talking about the next big thing and putting down each others choice of equipment. Guy photogs always say stuff like, "mine's bigger than yours" or "my camera was highly recommended by dpreview and yours wasn't", etc.
How have the male and female photographers you've met compare?
