I have met many women into the outdoors, nature, and all variety of activities therein. Almost all of them do it for personal enjoyment, and have few if any social media posts about it. Many of them have jobs that are partially or exclusively field-based, and many work/have worked more intense jobs than I have. Many of them are more knowledgeable about the outdoors than I am, and are more capable in the outdoors than I am.
I can carry more weight than them by far, but I wouldn't be surprised if they could hike as far/further than me with their setups, as I'm not an ultralight hiker.
I feel like many of you in this thread are judging outdoor prowess of random women who are urban (and urbane), and accompany you/chad for a day of hiking without ever actually going on a "real" hike before. This would be similar if somebody invited you to paint with them, and then made snide judgments because you can't do special effects body art like they can. These women were most likely expecting a park-esque stroll with someone they are interested in, not boondock camping in the woods after cross-country hiking.
I have met women who were not very good at doing outdoor activities. I have met far more men who were not very good at outdoor activities. I have met both men and women who were drastically better than me at outdoor activities.
One of my female friends just ripped apart her tacoma and redid the drivetrain by herself because she notices that it was acting up while she went hunting by herself the other day. Another of my female friends is spike camping to fight fires all season in the Sierra-Nevada foothills. I took an hour lunch yesterday in the field to eat an entire sleeve of Biscoff cookies because they taste good, before backing my work truck into a wooden post since the ATV was blocking my view. Why judge somebody off of one interaction?
