If you are a woman over the age of 17 you are automatically a member of the Hatrack Women’s Clique unless you are a newbie and are sexier or smarter than any current member of the Hatrack Women’s Clique.

If you are a single male or a male who happens to be married to a member of the Hatrack Women’s Clique then your official status is “Temporary Facilitator of the Hatrack Women’s Clique.”

If you are a pirate or a ninja then you enjoy special, honorary status in the Hatrack Women’s Clique and may do as you please.

Shouldn't the women's clique be established by—oh, I don't know—a woman?

And remember, if you're not in the women's clique, you cannot, under any circumstances, talk to us on the phone.

I hadn't thought to give credit to a single person, but you might be right. Good call, Jon Boy!

Umm, if I only respond in this thread by using the left half of my brain does that qualify? I'm sure my feminine side would feel right at home with all the wonderful hatrack ladies.

That would allow to many men access to our clique.

I have some serious gender issues with several Hatrackers. If they're serious about joining a womens only clique...then now's the time.

I personally wouldn't know the difference. [Wink]

To clarify my previous post I would like to say that I wasn't implying that women only use half of their brain I was just making a left brain/right brain joke.

who isn't invited to this clique? All women, single men, married (and I assume dating) a member of the clique, hobits, elves, ninja's, and pirates. I guess it will be a fun clique, I'm in.

Yeah, I'm totally not joining any clique that doesn't include men. In fact, I insist that we include everyone who wants in. We'll give a new, inclusive, meaning to the word "cliqueishness". Woo hoo! I'm in! Yay!

Breyerchic, I was thinking the same thing. This Women's Hatrack Click seems to include all of Hatrack.

Whoa! Where's the newbie-love here? Bad enough that I make less on the dollar than a man does, but to hear that I'm excluded from the clique simply because of my newbie status makes me wonder if I should just give in to my PMS next month and go ahead and start shooting. [Grumble]

I thought the general consensus was that you're no longer a newbie once you stop running back to threads you've posted in every 5 minutes to see if people have responded. Nobody can know if you're still a newbie but you.

Don't throw away your newbiehood like that!

You can never go back (unless you create a new SN and don't tell anyone....)

I'm in - or would like to be in. "Newbie" is iffy - I registered last year and lurk occasionally, but my total post count is embarrassingly low. And my husband thinks I'm smart and sexy. [Razz]

So, what can a womens' clique around here do?

- offer feminine views on great SF generally and OSC's work specifically. I'm always happy to offer and receive recommendations.
- trade funny kid/baby stories (actually many men could do equally well here. But I have a great story of when my toddler pointed at two lower-level executives with WordPerfect and called them, respectively, "goofball" and "fag". There happened to be a golfball behind one guy and a flag behind the other. Luckily they thought it was all very funny.)
- commiserate about the hardships of being a mom, or a working mom in particular. Or your love life if you don't have kids. Or both, if you're a single mom.
- meditate on the weirdness of trying to keep possession of the TV remote when your guy walks into the room where you're already watching some show, and he stares meaningfully at the TV and you. Life is so unfair sometimes.

What else am I missing?

Hey, we can talk about Kegels too. And PMS. And chocolate. (My one male employee, a few months ago, had the stupidity to ask the rest of us on staff "Hey is it really true about women and chocolate at that time of the month, or has my wife been lying to me all these years to get free candy?")
