Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Not sure what point this makes, you decide.

I just moved my daughter into her dorm a couple of weeks back. Her floor has three bathrooms. One Men's, one Women's and one Co-ed. Each have multiple stalls and showers for approx 6 people to be using at once. Interesting liberal Ivy League idea. I swear I wondered if it is really a social experiment, run by a wacky professor.

After a couple of weeks, she says there are really two Men's rooms and one Women's room. The men don't seem to care if there is a woman in the next stall or shower, but the women do and never go in there.

There seem to be some differentiators between genders that are self selected, not imposed.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
