allowed at BB/CL/BAR events they are not, yet, turn up (along with
beards....)they still do. The usual excuse is that if the woman
wasn't allowed to bring along the modern stroller/pram/buggie for the
sprogs, said man would not have been allowed to participate for the
weekend. "She Who Must Be Obeyed", and all that...
I've learned in this hobby to turn a blind eye to what the ....
everybody else is doing and, instead, just concentrate on my own
unit. Frankly, if others outside the group want to deck themselves
out in muu-muus made of Tim Horton mugs and carry their babies around
in modern haybales on garbage can lid wheels, with pizza boxes for
sunshades, I'm long past caring. My idea of fun at a reenactment is
not chug-a-lugging Maalox, fuming over somebody else's foibles. Life
is too short.
Besides, they wouldn't listen anyway.
