I heard that a few months before I bought mine and thought it was sort of funny. I also heard that or you were from Colorado. To me it's no big deal and I'm waiting for someone to mention it.... I'll just say it's my wife's car.

I'm on Subaru #6 and until a couple of days ago, I had never heard about Subaru being associated with any particular sexual orientation or gender.
My neighbor said he'd have to wear a pair of fake glasses/nose/mustache to ride in his wife's new Outback, though he didn't say why... but I digress..

Yesterday when I was in my dentist's office, I mentioned I thought I saw my wife driving by in my Foz and she mentioned that three people who worked there, including her, had Subaru cars... She provided me with the first mention that I had heard that Subarus are preferred by women who like women who like Subarus.
While it's yet another "fact" that isn't all that useful, this is the second time this week I'm hearing about the same topic.

To me this matters less than the other thing she told me, that being her husband was killed while driving a Subaru.
I thought that might not be something to engender brand endorsement, but it turns out few vehicles would allow a driver to survive a head on collision with a Greyhound bus doing 75. It wasn't the bus drivers fault.

Point is, don't associate someone else's tendencies with anything to do with yourself and don't expect a "safe" car to save your life in every situation....or do, but you could then also be disappointed or dead.

No passenger vehicle is designed to survive a 75 mph impact with ANYTHING that large, assume the bus's closing speed was similar, you're looking at a 150 mph impact. The human body isn't designed for that sort of instant acceleration.

The Toyota Rav4 and Honda CR-V also have a similar reputation (as a "lesbian car") according to some. I own both a Forester and a CR-V, and although I find it amusing I really couldn't care less about it.

Someone made this remark when I first got my Subaru, I ignored it. No one has mentioned it since.
