I'd point out that SailingDog did not use the Subjunctive form of any verb in his past post. I think that requires a salute to all wimyn, women everywhere.
Things are changing a bit in the Navy and MSC and women are officers in command and are not to be dealt with lightly because of preconceived notions.
I am always a secondary person on board when the owner of a boat takes command. I don't have to like their decisions but it matters less to me whether they are male or female.
As SD noted there are plenty of female skippers who know their stuff and why kick up a bunch of dust over such stupid stuff.
