    I've noticed more gals running engines in the last decade.
    What problems have I seen?
    Nuthin involving the gals...just the usual old drama between
    some of the cantankerous guys. I work to curb that.

    Anyway, at the big June engine show, I tried to recruit more
    volunteers, including one gal who collects engines. She was
    concerned that her Fairbanks Morse & Bessemer engines
    weren't hifaluten enuf. I assured her they'd be appreciated.

    As you can see, this is a broad topic.
    (Inappropriate pun was accidental, but meh....I left it anyway.)
    So post whatever you want about STEAM & inclusivity.

    I know nothing of engines in general but those are incredible machines.

    I could provide contacts in Californistan who'd
    show you steamy things to delight the senses.

    Leave it to a Revoltistanian to take a subject I care about, women, and mix it with machines - and in a stuffy way and not the way anime does where robot women shoot missiles from their chest at peeping miscreants with sunglasses and business suits.

    I don't know if I'll be able to look at myself or other women the same way again.

    Women are just people.
    Some are gearheads...anachronistic gearheads.
    Notice the "apprentice" oiling the big Snow engine in preparation for starting....

    Nah. It's an actual field of study, at least at some places...unlike Revoltifariansim...which when detected results in the immediate ejection of the student or faculty bringing it up...

    This thread seems to have been started to make fun of @Meow Mix 's thread on "Women in STEM" in the feminist section. Fairly childish. :rolleyes:

    I'm aware. But if I had to make a separate post for every indiscretion against humanity, I'd be here talking to Revoltingest all day. :)

    And they have the power to not only carry their own heavy weight, but the added weight of shaming modern day machinery.

    Steam is boss.

    I wouldn't claim that steam is better.
    But obsolete technology can be fun.
    Not all though...I won't be doing pre-anesthesiology surgery re-enactments.
