Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Spend part of my professional life reading stuff like:
If you record eye movements of males and females looking at the same picture they are different. If you record fMRI of m/f doing a task they are different. Of course their is overlap in the response curves but their is a biologic difference which transcends culture. This is a wonderful thing. I'll look at something and be confounded. She sees right off.Opposite happens too. What makes me POd is for either sex to not value and accept this difference.

Thats great, its like you are saying we are 2 different species. Fascinating but what does it get you when some one has to go forward in 20 knot wind and change a head sail or pull up a stuck anchor? I mean its not rocket science. Some one steers and some one works up front. Both people need to know what they are doing, and what the other person is doing. If your MRI could tell us something practical I'd be interested. Not picking on you, just pointing out what we are dealing with....

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Was just pointing out misceptions can lead to unnecessary hostilities. By the way my bride has run the boat standing single watch ( I napped in the cockpit) in a gale. She Does just fine thank you. Neither of us can pull up stuck anchor. We go up and down and power or sail over it. Our headsails roll and we use a winch when neccessary. Brains not brawn makes for good sailors. Best sailor I ever knew was a slight lady town librarian. She was great on multiday passages. Taught me a ton of stuff. First day on new boat my bride went up the mast.said she just wanted to see the view after rigger had finished his stuff.

My wife went up the mast because she said it was too much work to crank my fat butt up there.

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Fat? What was that sailing movie years ago where "No fat chicks" was painted below the waterline on a racing boat? Interestingly enough, as the story goes, that was taken from real life. I guess that was sexist boat?

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

As a female sailor, I have found that I am only able to command a pink or purple vessel. If I'm on a boat that is of any other color, I get distracted, indecisive, randomly toss things overboard and require male direction. Otherwise I will just sit down below and either iron or churn butter.

Damn these ovaries....


Seriously though, I get better treatment from male sailors. I single hand my boat and generally get a thumbs up from other male sailors. Female sailors usually give me the stink eye or pretend I don't exist.
I'm kind of shy plus I don't have an overwhelming need to socialize so eff someone like that.

I'm proud of what I can do. I don't need anyone else's approval.
