I was just wondering what being a girl in Vex is like for other girls. How do you guys interact with guy team members, or if you’re an all girl team/one girl team, what that’s like. What are some pros and cons of being a girl in Vex?
I’ll start. For pros, there are definitely a lot. I feel like as the only girl that shows up regularly, I have a bit of a different perspective since guys and girls tend to notice other things. Also, the other guys are nice enough and don’t show much of a gender bias. Plus, our sister team tends to be more willing to help us if I ask
On the other hand, sometimes boys will be boys. They talk about a lot of stuff that i don’t really follow (cars, mine craft, d&d) not that girls can’t do those things, but I don’t, and I don’t really want to either. Also, it’s annoying when people come in for the first time and automatically assume the boys carry the team, and I just do the notebook, or whatever (which I do, but I do other stuff too! Besides, notebooking is hard!)
But overall, it’s not so bad. I enjoy doing robotics, even though it can be at times a struggle. What about you guys?
