    All of these would be great topics... although personally I'm rooting for Storm in a Teacup.

    I voted Duplicity Funny how Vanity Fair was an early favorite, and now it's fallen behind. I'm curious to see which one wins in the end.

    (Oh and great work fellow ladies on voting a tie on the last poll and scoring an early head-start over the boys! Mwahahaha )

    Okies! As exciting and funny as it would be if we had another tied vote, it's not going to happen. I just went to vote and I see we're tied again.

    Soooo......if things aren't decided by close of poll, I'm going to use my vote as a decider. I do NOT want to do this, so, please, cut me a break. Vote! Vote! Vote!

    (you know you ladies want to, even if you're not sure if you're going to enter the challenge.)

    C'mon, pick the topic that you, as a female client, think would challenge the guys.

    What image would you like to see? It's up to you......

    I shouldn't be doing this since I'm in the challenge, too, but...

    The Teacup theme would definitely be a rough challenge for anyone, and I'd be happy to tackle it, but every solution that I can come up with tends to the humorous side. That may just be because of the way my brain is bent, or it may be a bit of reality. If it's the latter, we may end up with a lot of "serious" on one side, and a lot of "humorous takes" on the other. Whether that's good or bad is beyond me, but i just thought I'd mention it as one of the moderators for this challenge.

    Ladies. I'm bumping this in the hopes we can get some additional votes in. We're a quick sneeze away from ending in another tie, so if you haven't voted yet and you're female, please help us out by getting your vote in NOW...pleeeeeeeeze...

    I voted for Faded Beauty Still Shines a bit earlier.

    And I have to say I'm actually quite on level with the kitty when it comes to thinking about the topic.

    Storm in the teacup has a bit more limited ways of approaches than Faded Beauty Still Shines in my mind, at least (I might just not think far enough though....), but these kind of challenges are always about the art, quality and how far the artist push it no matter level for me. And I see a lot more potential in FBSS.

    Thank you, Sorky. I was trying to be careful when I said that so I wouldn't be seen to be trying to influence the vote.

    Officially, we still have a tie, and alesoun has gone to bed, so we are on hold until she tie-breaks this little fiasco tomorrow. I will post the official announcement and rules in the thread you all signed up in, change its name, and have Daes' move it to the appropriate section later in the day.

    Thanks for all your efforts and input, Ladies.

    ...and we have an announcement going up in about five minutes...

    Daes', at your convenience, after about six hours or so, (it's 10 am here now), would you please move the "Official thread" to the CHALLENGE ARENA as a sticky. There are two stickies there now that relate to the last Gender Challenge which should be un-stuck.

    I was real worried about storm in a teacup so I got a head start just encase. I didn't like the idea anyways. It was a little too specific and I couldn't find an analogy for it. We all would have come up with the same thing, because it only gave so much room for interpretation.

    I'm glad to hear Faded beauty won. It should give room for some great subject matter.

    Storm in a Teacup is basically the same thing as Mountain out of a Molehill ie blowing things out of proportion. Not literally a storm inside of a cup intended for tea.
