Tossing this out here. Are you a FA and would you be interested in starting some sort of FA discussion group here? Just floating the idea at this point, nothing specific yet. I'll definitely follow up soon and post more.


I'm curious about the numbers of FAs interested and your gender. Please post if you are interested!

FFA here. I would be interested if it was for general male and female FA topics. I can also understand if the male FAs felt the need for a special interest group unique to them, though.

yeah, this is what I meant when I said "interested to a degree." It's just late and I couldn't make the words.

Forgive me for asking, but isn't that what we have here? Or is the idea that you'd have a place exclusive to those only claiming the title FA and those of us who only identify with the bbw/ssbbw title are out? Then the FA group could be divided further into subgroups of FA and FFA, the FFA group into average sized FFA and bbw sized FFA, and furthermore it would seem from the other thread that some of those in the FA group might also want a group for those 400+.. or is that simply a SSBHM board? Seems like we'd be asking Conrad and his volunteer crew of mods to potentially take on an awful lot, then I wonder why all the division in the first place or is this still bad feelings over the creation of the ssbbw board?

The great white north, eh?
Many years ago I did run a yahoo group along these lines (actually specifically aimed at FA who were in relationships), and while there was some interesting discussions it was very hard to keep momentum up, and it gradually faded away.

For better or worse, and possibly as much because of the tension it generates, having both sides of the coin in on discussions seems to keep things livelier.

Having said all that, if there was such a thing created, I'd participate. I'm just not sure (and I really mean not sure, lots of doubts both ways) whether or not it is actually a good idea in the long run :blink: Generally more linkages make for a stronger system, so I'm a bit wary of dividing things up into too many silos. But at the same time.....yah, I see the appeal.

Good idea and I would participate. Men need a place to talk about things, LIKE MEN.

I agree with Laura. This board is a place for FAs to discuss FA related matters.

Nobody is stopping you from having guy talk. In fact i've often seen threads where a mod posted immediately that discussion on particular topic needed to stay aboveboard (i.e. don't tease this person, don't jump into a discussion with the intent of being rude, only contribute in a positive manner.)

I'm not a man but I'm in favor of the idea. Why must we see into everything in your head? A private forum.

I can think of a few reasons that such a forum should exist but I don't feel comfortable saying them with all you women folk around ..

They can, at Conrad's discretion. It's not up to me or anyone else. I only question the need for/interest in it.

I don't think its fair to ask them to dance around naked in front of us so we can all nod and say OK. Let them answer their own question. We should allow them the same courtesy we expect in return.

Yeah, but see .. I have always dreamed of a forum where I could make a thread such as "How do I hide my constant erection when I am at the Heavenly Bodies Bash" and not feel ashamed.

or maybe not so much that, but well, you know, guuuuyy sttuuuuffff *whines*

I also agree with Laura. Seems that the ' brother board ' to the SSBBW board ( private ), would be a SSBHM board ( private ). If a general FA board were to be private, does that mean we get a private BBW board ( all BBW, to talk about how it is to be a BBW in this world ). I am not saying I am clamoring for such a place, just don't know how we exclude a really big number of women out here, if talking about a need to have ' a place of ones own '. Oof.

I'm not saying I'm against the idea, but will a separate FA board mean that we women who want to learn more about the FA mentality will just be in the dark, from now on? I never knew FAs existed until I came here and it's been a great learning experience...

I never meet FAs in real life...reading these boards is all I have..:(

I doubt the creation of a private forum will prevent these fellas from raising cane in all the other threads like they usually do. 'specially if somebody posts a photo.
