I agree with most of what you say and over the years I have known several males who wanted to establish that ham radio is a "guy thing". However, ham radio is just another pursuit which gives equal consideration to both male and female in modern times (both by law and practice). The same thing happened in space travel, professional golf, heading large industrial plants, medical practice, etc. Over time women have shown that they can do just about anything they set their mind to do. In many cases they have excelled.
I am aware that there is a difference between the male and female traditional role. However, there is no such thing as a "guy" thing or a "gal " thing in my mind in any area or pursuit. I told my kids and grandkids early in life there are no fences to stop them from doing what they want to do. If you want something- go for it!
