    I went to a big toy store looking for a magnetic chess set. I asked a staff member about it and she said it would be in the boys' toys section. 

    Stunning!  Toys and games are often grouped together in stores.  And there are usually separate sections for "dolls" and "action figures."  But Board Games?!  Time warp again ... and, by the way, that story gives a pretty big hint about the answer to this forum's question.  Check out "the problem that has no name" in Friedan's The Feminine Mystique.

    MIL:  The USCF store has magnetic chess sets in several sizes.  They are still on sale I think.

    Because guys are more social.  They like to do things with friends like go to clubs together and play games with people they know.


    Girls take chess more seriously.  They'd rather sit at home memorizing variations of the Sicilian defense.

    We "girls" have many powers.  Some are not visible to the casual observer.  But we have them.  And we all know we have them.  Oh, yes.  And that almost makes up for our having so much less economic and political power.  Almost.  :-)

    That illustrates the problem with generalizations.  They're all false. ;-)

    from most the girls i've talked to, they all seem more like "one of the guys" than (not then for you gramatical people) "one of the girls" and they're all in chess club.
