Re: Is Sailing Sexist?
While a big picture discussion of sexism as a whole is interesting, I'm not sure how all of this relates to the self-proclaimed and self-evident bigger, stronger tougher half of a boating couple staying planted behind the wheel and nudging the throttle while the smaller, weaker half is on the bow fighting with the anchor and rode.... which is essentially the sort of semi-amusing sexism that prompted this topic...
...Unless one believes that he "hunts" for the anchorage, and she "gathers" the anchor and rode.
Okay. That's good.
