Re: Is Sailing Sexist?
Is it sexist to recognize that there are physical and psychological differences between men and women. I don't think so. It would be sexist to discriminate against a female in favor of a male in circumstances where those differences don't matter. Where physical strength is an aspect of a job or activity you would be crazy not to expect men to perform better.
You want a captain for an Americas Cup racer man or woman, who ever you think can get it done. Want a grinder for that same boat it's going to be a guy.
Kind of telling the lack of participation by women in this thread. Guys like combat.
