As my interest in firearms and shooting increases and as I take steps to become more independent of my male friends by finding events, groups and friends that are female, I find it interesting the reactions that I am getting. In some cases I feel badly but also a bit frustrated and suffocated at the same time.
Last night when I shared with one of my male shooting partners all the wonderful things that I had in planned this month, I got a very nasty response back stating how selfish I was and I was only concerned for my own happiness. I'm assuming this comment stems from the fact that all the classes that I have set up for this month are women only events and he feels left out so therefore felt the need to say harsh and mean things. Not to worry, this person is no longer a friend as of last night, I don't need someone who isn't going to support me and is only going to make me feel badly about what I'm trying to do.
I deviated sorry:
I know that this interest/hobby is mostly a man dominated one but it is becoming less so as more women start to take up with the interest and I'm loving the fact of how much female support that I'm finding. Don't get me wrong, I still like bonding with my male friends but it's nice to have the softer side of Sears as well.
I forgot my whole point since I was interrupted at work, oh well.
