Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

No one can deny that it exists in the world, and that many other horrible and wonderful things also exist in the world, and many things we can't even comprehend.

But anyone can deny that sexism exists in a particular circumstance. That doesn't make them the enemy of anybody or anything, nor does it entail keeping sexism alive. I can however see that line of thinking in some of the responses on this thread.

For the record, the myth that "women earn less than men for the same work" has already been thrown into the dustbin of falsehoods with " alongside men beat their wives after the superbowl"(God how many times did I have to listen to that one!) and a hundred other myths. Its just not true..

I wouldn't rush to judge other couples or crews if what they are doing in their relationships works for them in their particular circumstance. There are many many things we can't comprehend.

By the way, my intitial comment toward you was just a tongue in cheek joke and you are a good sport.Thanks.
