Re: How many women here own their own boat?

It is just so sad that women do not feel like they can communicate in an open and level area. And it is true that not all men are comfortable with women talking at all. But we try to change that every day. I just wish people would treat all others with respect and kindness regardless of gender. It is so hard for some people to understand, yes, in the 21st century women are captains and men can be passengers without shame and those with alternative lifestyles can think as well. Some states do prohibit discrimination based on gender identity but not all. BUT not all. For example During the 2012 Idaho legislative session, they introduced a bill that would revise the Idaho Human Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In a scene reminiscent of a 1950’s anti-comunist event, and in spite of an emotional plea from Sen. Malepeai, it only took the committee five minutes to vote to reject even the printing of the bill and rejected allowing a public viewing or public comment or a public vote on the bill. Those for gender rights were silenced in just five minutes. Exclusion is just wrong for man or woman or others time to grow up people...
