Hmmm, well this is just random. I was wondering that there are a lot of clickers here who are guys. Like almost all of them or at least thats the impression I get so forgive me if I am mistaken. Just out of curiosity, are there girls here as well? If not, then how come only guys are interested in making games? Once more, this is only out of curiosity.

Last time I asked that, the anger level was so high that the thread got locked within a day

I'd boil it down to a few things:
1. Girls are statistically more interested in creating things involving biology than engineering. In that sense, a lot of them are great artists, though, but you'll find most of them on deviantART rather than making games.
2. Girls can't weather out the heavy flame wars that happens within the Click Community. A lot of guys can't either, but girls are more sensitive to it.
3. Girls get nervous when surrounded by men. Ask most girls why they don't go to the gym. Ask yourself why you wouldn't go into a room full of girls.
4. Some of the younger klikers try to hit on them and some of them get quite annoyed by it.

There was one time before an official community existed when the ratio was more like 10:1. Now it's a lot worse. And they do make games. Look at the GameMaker, RPGMaker, The Sims modding communities.

My girlfriend uses MMF1.5 but doesn't really want to come here. Not after the stories she's heard .

Its been a while since we had this type of topic eh?

From what I gather yes there are girls in the community however most of them do not disclose that fact for obvious reasons.

You sure about that? Ashley can be male name too. I don't know though, and actually I don't care.

Yeah.

Luckily having no girls in the klik community doesn't mean they don't exist.
