Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I'm not quite sure where you're going with this point either Minne. The reasons these women have for not wanting to share bathrooms with the guys may come from motivations that do are not relevant to the reasons they may not want to learn sailing together. I'm thinking of body-modesty taboos; or maybe the guys are sloppier, or drunken barfing after frat parties; or who-knows-what.

And as for learning styles ... how many of the guys here can honestly say that they preferred learning in an environment where they were yelled at? I don't think that's a gender thing, I think its a respect thing.
