This is terrible.

I'm counting on SHTF time to build me a nice harem. I'll be able to support 6-7 ladies, as long as they aren't too picky about food and such.
I'll pick up a range. Have my actual "Top" woman, she lives with me now. She'll get right to first refusal for any new woman she just doesn't like.

I am a terrible person. I know that. But I'm okay with that.

The only thing I'd be concerned about in the shtf scenario, is keeping my kids safe. I'm not really worried about having a bloke around to protect me as such.

I find this whole post a tad bit insulting.

I am a woman. I grew up in west Texas, know how to hunt, fish, use any kind of gun you hand me. Can cook over an open flame. Can CREATE open flame with a variety of tools. Know how to create a shelter. I know how to use all the tools in our well-stocked garage, both the simple & the power kind.

And I own some open land I can go hang out on if need be.

My husband would be comforting to have around as an extra set of hands, but I would figure it out if something happened to him. I have handier skills than most of the men my age! I picked my husband partially because he was more like the men I grew up with - A REAL MAN - and not a pansy like most men I know.

From the age of 17 I was completely on my own & put myself through college without any help from my family.

Why would I need a pansy man to cling to? I would rather not have most of them around if the SHTF, honestly. They would just be IN THE WAY.

I am not too worried though because:
I have several "equalizers" if you know what I mean and know how to use them,
blood and gore doesnt bother me much anymore,
I also have made it a point to learn self defense techniques and stay in excellent shape,
I am already bugged out for the most part

I will be a valuable member of any group because I:
am an herbalist- I know almost all the wild edibles and medicinals in my woods here and how to use them,
hunt and fish and have for years, (I hunt with both rifle and bow),
know how to tan animal skins and hides, and know the uses for all parts of the animal,
have a good amount of commodities cached, so they are nearby but not apparent,
make excellent wine,
am 50 years old so not the most "desirable" of the girlys, lol
am an excellent cook and prepare delicious game as well as other foods,
am pretty even tempered, have outgrown drama and am pretty cool in the face of tragedy and disaster.

Really, the only reason for having a man around (for me) would be for companionship...and occasionally getting the tight lids off of jars.

ETA I started preparing myself for a SHTF scenario more than 10 years ago, and have spent much time since then learning skills and preparing for the doesnt come overnight!
edit on 18-5-2011 by Elostone because: (no reason given)

I am a single me that does not make me 'single'.
I would like to point out to you guys out there that there is a helluva difference between a single female and a 'single' female who needs to protect her children....(thinks Terminator Lol). are amazing! GO GIRL GO! Don't suppose you are in the UK are you? You should consider running classes/courses/workshops for singles and single mum's. I was delighted to find that they are running a Bushcraft week end in the Lake District at the beginning of June. My son thinks I am crazy with my 'prepping', my daughters trust me and 'go with the flow'. Here was an opportunity to meet up with like minded people, learn all sorts of skills over the 4 day camp holiday (including learning what's edible/archery, basically everything you have done. I suddenly had my son 'on-side'! GREAT! Unfortunately, finances have taken a turn for the worse and it doesn't look like I can take them.......back to reading survivalist posts/threads which go some way but nothing beats 'hands on ' experience.

I am an older single woman and I actually worry about this. I have stored extra food and have more than one gun. I also have cigarettes and alcohol stored for barter. I know how to hunt and I know how to fish. I'm a redhead with a temper when provoked! My biggest resource is strict determination. I may not survive, but I will outlast those who don't prepare.

You poor guy. Redheads are the ones you are supposed to avoid at all costs, well at least in my area because where I'm from they're described as the most fiery ones

I salute you good sir.
Good luck

What kind of arrogant piece of work you must be to make a thread like this... an AR 15 works as good in my hands as in yours..if you call yourseldf a man...your a disgrace to your sexualitiy with a mentality like that pfftttt!!!!

WOW you seem to be an exception, to most of the women I know...I am not sexest, I was just putting this out there for discussion ...THATS WHAT FORUMS ARE was actually done to hopefully help some of that you might be a little more prepared for a SHTF.
I have no doubt that your a pittbull and probably can handle yourself, great...not all women are like you...I know because I have never known a female that was quite like you claim to if your good to go, great...not all women are like you...

Thanks for your comments ...thats what the forum is for...discussion..agree or still gets people to think of things that they might not of thought of before.

So David,

What you are saying is, when TSHTF and my redhead wife comes back home from hunting up the days grub and walks in the door and says, "Hey Hon, did ya miss me"?

I am supposed to reply, "Yeah babe, with all 5 shots"!

Redheads can't be half as mean as the cougar I live

Whooa lady! Back off the red bulls.

Do you get pissed when guys open the door for ya too?

It was an honest question from a guy concerned about women.

WE men are quite understanding of some women being good with weapons.

Hell, I trained my wife!

I must admit I thought about this often. If SHTF I reckon I would be screwed. I have no man, just a dog and a son to look after and am petite in stature. I could only hope my dog and son could defend us "physically" and leave all the mental work for me to figure out. I don't think that I have any survival skills whatsoever. I could tell everyone which alien race is OK to talk to and which ones not to and other highly useful things like that but otherwise my little family and I are screwed. Personally, I think that this is a good thread and not sexist as have thought about this often. Would like to meet a good man who is compatible with me though in the mean time...

You will read plenty of stories during the American Revolution and the civil war about wives holding down the fort while the men were gone or dead. Abigail Adams had to do it.
It is not that I don't have men in my life but they are all in different states. So I am on my own.
What I do have is a son. And I am a grizzly momma and WILL do whatever it takes to ensure our survival.

Stature has nothing to do with it. Fight smarter not harder.

I got a behind the scenes once at a zoo. I went into the elephant hanger (yes its a hanger) and they let the elephants in. It was one of the mose surreal, scarey, and impressive sights is to see elephants galloping towards you.
The trainers have to work with them every day and put them through their paces. It is not that elephants forget, it is to remind them who is boss. You have to be in complete control, you can't show fear. It takes a special keepr with resolve to be in charge of elephants. I was never more impressed then this tiny female who had to be 90 lbs soaking wet, was making this multi-ton animal do whatever she wanted it to do.
Learn to use it as an advantage.

I used to work in a "correction facility" yes.....I know what kind of animals would be out there...(only 1000 times worse with no law enforcement) There's a way to handle that..... As Al Pacino said in "Scarface"....."Say hello to my Liiiittle friend"

LOL thats just great!

My response is along these lines - I can't believe anyone is having kids right now seriously - in a SHTF situation I am pretty much alone - but I have 2 sons who are old enough that I don't have to worry so much about protecting them, and hopefully (at least one) can protect me - otherwise, I'm going down with the ship - which in my mind isn't really all that bad - what follows the SHTF situation could be a lot worse than the actual SHTF
