Most of us are not as bold as the other gender into entering discussions which may lead to arguments on how things should be right or wrong. Just the nature of the beast.
Interesting observation, so men and women are different? I wonder if I had said that, I might be branded sexist? I guess it just depends on the circumstances and maybe the level of testosterone??

I just think men like to shoot their mouths off more.

Perhaps the ladies are out sailing while the men are hunched over a keyboard?

They are treated rudely or not taken seriously?

Anything they say is invalidated?

OK to rant Ladies!
I thought it is quite the opposite. When female member posts, all guys jump into action and hope for a date. It does not matter if he is married and not. You can see the post counts.

Why ladies don't like to post because too many men with Hi-T are hitting on them. They are sick of tired of it. so they register with a guy name to protect the female identity ……. Oooops, I gave out my secrets.

I think this happens more often than people realize. Sad to say but guys don't take advice/help from women very well unless it's cooking or knitting or some other foo-foo girly task.

A guy wouldn't want to ignore advice from Denise or DR (or maybe some others) if they were holding a cast iron skillet for some foo foo girly task.

I know for a fact that e-cast iron skillets don't hurt nearly as bad as real cast iron skillets.

Men and women are created differently to serve the function of protecting the survival of species. However, in terms of intelligent and organization skills and focus, there are no difference. As matter of fact, women are likely to do better than men. They do it because necessity, simply women out live men by 10 to 25 years. Women learn and succeed.

I have the fortune to work with many capable and well trained female colleagues, I don't see any gender differences. In fact I hire many more female professionals than the male counterpart. When it comes to summer research internship job or part time job, I hire exclusively female students. I look for excellent SAT score and GPA (3.5 plus). The male students in general not as mature and less focused as female student. Just like everything else, there is always an exception. If they caught my eyes, they will be given an opportunity to prove themselves.

Likewise, there are a lot dumb peoples getting into our system, but it only take 30 sec to read their CV and cover letter to know what they have. A short phone interview will confirm that.

When I read the posts, I am color blind, gender blind, and religion blind. I care about the accuracy and merit of the post. One side note, I find it pathetic to see all grown men kissing up to the new lady posters. Some enjoy the flitting and attention, some just fade away because of it.

I hope Sailnet remains a sailing site, not for hooking up. There are plenty of these sites around.
