How about one that reads:

Sublime -- i don't have to get over anything. i am in favor of women captains who have the knowledge and skill to handle a vessel. our local USCG ship has a woman captain who does a great job.

Brings to mind a story a female sailor friend related once...

She and a group of (female) friends had chartered a boat somewhere warm. All was going well and at one point they were at a marina somewhere and a couple of guys sort of kept walking by.. not ogling or leering necessarily, just walking by scoping out the boat, seemingly looking for something.. This went on for some time when they finally stopped and were asked what they were looking for.. "Oh,", they said, " just looking and wondering where the skipper was - we hadn't seen him on board yet...."

No, he is just trying to score, which just happens to be the same reason men run for office...

Methinks Sublime wants to get the men posting in herSailnet again so another gender skirmish ensues.
