By that argument, the entire herSailnet area is irrelevant and divisive.

I don't think the OP posted (in an area where she probably expected only women to respond) with the intention of dividing anyone. I may be wrong, but I suspect it was natural curiosity. The same as when some months back someone asked why more minorities aren't sailing or someone else asked what happened to the young people.

I think perhaps more is being read into the original question than was intended.
