UEC Means To Me
GreyEyes - Webmaster/Graphic Designer
Unladylike Evildoers. A perfect name for a community of friends. Way
back before this site was born I had been kicking around an idea for
a site devoted to women of a certain age and the men who love them.
Last April I quickly put this site together as I and the rest of our
members were feeling quite displaced. We had a temporary gathering
place on a Yahoo group but it just wasn't enough.
only have I been able to keep my friends close, I have been given
the wonderful opportunity of getting to know others whom I really
didn't know that well before. We laugh, we cry, we rejoice and we
mourn and we do this together. We debate issues and even
disagree from time to time but with one huge difference - we respect
each one's uniqueness. You'll see no nastiness or intolerance on
have learned so much from each and every member of the UEC and I
continue to learn daily. We have 26 Evildoers and I consider each
one of them my friend. What more could one want?

To me, the
importance of the UEC is the security that I feel there. I
enjoy being able to have an opinion, and express it.. then
discuss it. Everyone at UEC is very opinionated, and we all
accept that about ourselves and each other. We are able to
state our opinions and discuss them. No flaming occurs, no
personal attacks.. just discussion.
I enjoy the
comfort of being among friends and people that care about each
other. There is a sincerity and warmth in the gathering of
friends that is easy to feel when you step inside our little
We are more than
online chat partners.. UEC is more than a game or message
board . It is truly a gathering place for friends, new and
old friends. We come here when we are happy, sad, lonely,
hurt, joyful, frightened or silly. It is okay to" just be", at
We enjoy each
other, disagree with each other, support and appreciate each
other at UEC.
That is special.

I'd been sailing
the stormy seas of Q&A sites for a couple of years, but often
enough found that it always wasn't what I'd expected: a way to
help people, to get some answers to sometimes sticky, or
not, questions. Or to have fun and relax after yet another
irritating day at work...
Then someone did us
a favour and singled us out as the Evil lurking about another
site. Of course, we were a bit confused about at first, but
soon came to see that they were right: we didn't fit the formula
of trashing others at whim, nor demurely accepting it when
garbage was thrown at us. Since these folks considered
themselves akin to saints, we came to the conclusion
that indeed, we must be very, very evil. [At this point I'd
like to sing "Evil Woman", but I don't know the lyrics...]
This is what I call
home now. We sometimes disagree, we misunderstand [all, except
us blondes, of course], but we sort it out. And we learn a lot.
If only I could
remember any of those lessons...
