I hope I'm not lighting a match in a room full of fireworks here, but I'm curious about this. The vast majority BJD owners are women. If you are a man: Have you ever gone to a doll meet up and gotten dirty looks from any of the women there or, if in a public place, anyone else? Do you hide your hobby out of fear that you might be judged as effeminate, or "gay"? If you are a woman: When you encounter a man at a doll meet up, or on these forums, does it make you feel uncomfortable or resentful? How do you feel about the presence of men in this hobby in general? I look forward to your answers and insights.
