I probably did deal with it- the OP question;sexism in sailing, about 30 pages before you posted this new statement above.


For those around the world that have suffered-and continue to suffer today(many with their lives) -from racism and sexism, denial is a slap in their face.

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I read the point as the accusations and terms are so overused, it actual dilutes the cause wherever it is real. I do agree with that. That's not denial.
