If you changed the name of the group to something that is not blatantly old school sexist stereotyping I might consider it. Nostalgia is fine but there are many aspects of it that were not.

Oh my. Your connotation and you are free not to join of course.

I don't think the ladies named it with intention to create a sexist group. They obviously like glamping style camping. Good for them. Dolls? Who cares. I have never minded when a man or woman said to me, "You're a doll Wendy." I see it as a compliment.

And I'm not a glamper but I appreciate folks who are and I get it. I bet both men and women fall into that category!

At any rate, I am confident no malice was intended here. Again, yiuve obviously exercised your right to not join, while the other 1200 have. All good.

Couple of thoughts

A couple times a year my wife gets together with some long time friends. I know them all and I'm always invited. While I'm sure it would be most enjoyable, I always refuse. Me being there would change the dynamic, not something I would want to do. Sometimes the girls should be with the girls.

Like most colleges, the one I worked at rented the place out over the summer to help pay the bills. One group that came evey year was a rug making group. For several days class rooms were filled people, mostly women, interested in making hooked rugs. The called themselves the happy hookers. It made everyone smile. Raz

Ha ha! I love it when people create a funny play on words! Happy to hook rugs, hooked on being happy.

Such as in my trailer name, Shrimp Scampi.

Good story Raz. And I agree: sometimes the girls just wanna be with the girls. Of course the same is true for the boys.

Cheers

Reminds me of when a local 4H gardening club was told they could not call themselves the "Happy Hoe-ers".

It's the irony of the whole diversity/tolerance ethic. When the single value of "offend no one" trumps all others, all the rich distinctives of race, culture, geographical region, and, in this case, gender fade to a bland greyness.

Surely we can tolerate the existence of a hyper-feminine camping group…

I'm 64 and I grew up back in the 50's and 60's and things were a heck of a lot different then, (read "old school,") and I've never been accused of being "thin skinned" nor "politically correct." I can take it, and also poke fun at, anyone and anything with the best of them, but especially disturbing over the last several years is a growing trend towards creating new descriptive and divisive "pigeonholes" for everyone which we as a society seem to feel an urgent need for. Why? When all it serves to do is further separate and divide us rather than bring people together. It only drives wedges between different parts of our society. Are we, as a society, that insecure in who we are as individuals that we need to create new labels for anyone and everyone who wants to be "different" in some way or other? We're just becoming too politically correct.

That aside, you go girls! Glamp Away!

Wow so much thought over it...lol
I just wanted to run away with my girls....boys are yucky...lol
Nah just kidding, I love my hubby and 3 sons, they're just not into the girl stuff.
Although my hubby does love Glamping with me, I feed him like a king and we have lots of fun together.
