I’m like @Mark F. Jenkins on this. That is odd and unfortunate. I might imagine myself being excited that a woman was interested in, say, battles or tactics, and I might ... I don’t know ... I might express that excitement a bit more than I would if it were a man; but I don’t think I would ever find myself being suspicious about a woman’s motives concerning that interest.but sometimes when I’m trying to talk about it with a man (interested in it) they are sometimes suspicious of mine or any woman’s motives. I ran into this at Harpers Ferry with my sister standing next to me! The battlefield guide was so taken aback he came out and said it! Sigh.
Just out of curiosity- and to make sure I never leave any such perception- what motives do they suspect? Do they come out and say that? or is it implied somehow? I’m certainly sorry that has happened to you or any other woman.
