      I’m a young adult on binky bunny (22). I always figured there were teens on here. My bad habit is I view every poster as a woman until I will see a post and be like, “oh it’s a guy” lol I’m not sure why. I guess because women seem to more commonly take on the caretaker role and take care of the bunnies or maybe I just see things a little more on the old fashioned side.

      NBO- I think that way too!!! Anytime I someone says they are a guy I am like “what???”
      Not that guys shouldn’t have bunnies it is just sort of suprizing!!!
      P.s. I hope I am not posting too much, I’m just so excited to be on BinkyBunny!!! Lol

      There are members that are teens for sure. Ive found some of the regular teen members weve had here over the years to be very mature for their age. Very responsible and considerate people. : )
      ETA: haha that comment made me sound old.

      Be careful about stating your age if under 18. Its best not to do so for your own protection and its advised not to in the Forum Guidelines.

      I made the mistake once of figuring out how many decades I’ve lived in once. i.e. 70’s 80’s etc. That was a little scary.

      We love to have guys here, but it is a lower % of bunny posters (not necessarily owners) than the women. Some of our members have started here in their teens and become adults while staying in touch, which we love. A bunny will probably be with you about a decade or more, so it’s nice to all go through years together.

      As a pet, bunnies are not suggested for children, but as a pet for teens who handle them well and are responsible for their care, they are really nice. When someone starts here and learns about bunnies and caring for them well, and shares that knowledge with enthusiasm to other members and with their families and friends, it’s really rewarding.

      2.6

      And the reason there are more women than men is because… in general women tend to go onto forums/social networking more than men (according to studies). I wouldn’t let it color your view that more women than men have rabbits, I am sure there are plenty of men who love bunnies too.

      I have to agree – my boyfriend is a total nut for our bunnies. He definitely spends as much time with/maybe more time than I do with the buns daily. He sometimes comes on BB and reads through the forum posts (doesn’t add anything) but will wander through BB and look at the ones I’ve posted on as they are usually the ones that interest him the most also. He’s totally NOT a bunny forum poster but he’s used BB as much for information and read through the posts to learn more just as much as I have WITHOUT ever responding to anything. Haha! He definitely cares for them and takes care of them just as much as I do but he’s not a socializer about it.

      I second TL there. My bf is totally nuts for our buns. He adores them and gets really upset when he works a lot because he doesn’t get to spend time with the buns. He’s not a big forum person either. He would rather lurk and read. But he adores the monthly picture thread. =]

      Ahhh I’m jealous of you guys with your bunny-loving boyfriends! Mine is definitely very fond of Merida, and he’ll let out an “aww” occasionally for her and pictures of other buns, but he usually doesn’t look up bunny info on his own, or spend a lot of time with her.

       
      I recently “upgraded” to 2.5! Though the “inner child” is still very strong.

      Dwarf Sparrow my boyfriend is a massive animal lover. It was actually his idea to get a bunny after his ferret passed away. I was really against getting a bun and wanted had actually wanted a hedgehog instead. =p I’m really happy we got a bun instead though. The buns have made me super happy. =]

      Oh and to originally answer the question of the thread. =p I upgraded to 2.1 yesterday. xD

      Haha, my husband also ADORES the picture thread! He lurks around once in a while but for the most part he just reads posts I bring to his attention.

      He’s pretty into the rabbits and I love sneaking up on him in the bunny room. The chats he has with them when he doesn’t think anyone is around are freaking adorable, LOL.  He’s usually the one that picks up bunny supplies from the feed store and I’m pretty sure they think of him as the “bunny guy” because apparantly he’s always talking about them and showing off pictures.

      It’s definitely not that the bf isn’t an animal lover- he is- it’s just that he’s more of a dog person. And to be fair I’m a bit obsessive with taking care of the bun, so unless he wants to fight for the chance to clean the litter box… lol

      My husband loves our bunnies but he’s not bunny crazy like I am. He’s more of a cat guy, really. (Don’t tell the buns, they will be horrified!)

      I love meeting guys that are not shy about loving their buns. I have a friend on Facebook that is in a metal band in Vegas and he has 6 bunnies and is not shy about posting about them. It’s funny because he’s like this hard-core haunt rocker but he has pics of his buns all over his FB and posts about them giving him kisses and stuff. Too cute!

      Happy birthday, Skipper’s Mama!!! Now, just so you know… there may be some system glitches at first… most of the kinks should be worked out by version 2.5 tho, so don’t lose hope! LOL!!! ;o)

      The vast majority of our members are female. I automatically use the feminine pronoun when referring to members, unless it’s been brought up, or has become apparent that the member is a male. No offense is intended by this choice of words if you are a male! Just say, “Yo! I’m a dude!” and it’ll be all cleared up :o)

      I agree that it probably has more to do with the whole “social, clucking hens” aspect than men not loving bunnies! We (women) just like to blab more, I guess!

      Thank you for posting the link to the BB forum rules… Good to know for future reference!

      I also recently upgraded to version 2.5 and always assumed all the BB members were ladies as well. Like most of you with loving bunny papas, mine relies on me to do all the bunny research. He gives them a lot of love and attention, but never has to worry about their health, diet, appropriate rabbitats… etc. He isn’t a forum person either. I always show him the cute pics on BB though and share bunny stories from BB which makes him he laugh/smile.

      and my job today is to make ALL of you feel younger! I’ll be 61 in October 😉 As accident-prone and Murphy’s Law prone as I am, I’m really surprised I’ve lasted that long.

      In my 7th year with buns, still have my original pair the Lady Pringles and Daisy, 3 yr old Dammit Charlie and a recent adoption, 7 yr old Lucy from NTRS. and a cranky 18 yr old cat, Sandy. Come to think of it, with the exception of Charlie, I do run a Senior Home 😉

      Haha I am version 2.4 with bpash89 and tanlover14.

      I have to disagree with you bpash. I just recently realized that I can start saying I have over 20 years of experience with some things, AND ITS AWESOME! :p Lol I really discovered it when I was filling out an adoption application for a rabbit rescue last week…I have had rabbits since I was 3 and that means I have over 20 years of bunny experience! ^_^ I guess my younger sister and I were the exceptions to the kids shouldn’t have bunnies idea, although I am the only one who still has bunnies. She says she misses them, but not the smell (oh the hay and shavings) so she just gets her bunny fix at my house.

      And my boyfriend also loves bunnies. I think he was a little hesitant 5 years ago when I said I was getting another bun and it would be his furbaby too (we weren’t living together yet), but man he loved Merlin! He never had a rabbit so I think he thought it would be like the family hamster he and his 5 siblings had as a kid. He was pleasantly suprised and spoiled him rotten! All of the care decisions and cleaning are left to me, but he has no problem feeding or picking them up now. He is scared of doing something wrong and it has only been recently that he would pick up the bunnies at all, but I think this is also due to Merlin being a rescue who was afraid of being held.

      Mustachebunny and Nibbles, I want to echo what Jerseygirl said – that it’s strictly a rule about posting your age, not a comment on whether or not you are responsible in caring for your bunny. It has to do with spammers and trolls that search the internet for a mention of age, teenagers in particular, and try to contact you. It’s a form of security to protect you from people who have nothing to do with bunny care, but may be checking out sites with young people. I felt it best to copy the rules both for your benefit and for other members, who occasionally need reminding of our security measures, like age, full name, etc.
      Please don’t take it personally. Thanks, RP.
