Ok, you win. I'll refer to her as Commodore from now on. Hope she doesn't mind the demotion.

Just kidding. Truce?

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

not when you're on the receiving end, son... Let's just say it's pretty similar to saying, "oh look aren't they cute when they're little!"

I attempted to, but it auto-corrected to 'misinterpret'.

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

while you're looking up things, how about researching the definition of 'patronizing.'

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

A tongue-in-cheek term of endearment which elevates their wife to a position of leadership above their own is chauvinistic?

I admit I had to look up the definition of chauvinistic to make sure I haven't been mistaken in it's meaning my whole life, but how is saying one's wife gets the final say when it comes to all things boat related is "displaying excessive or prejudiced support for one's own sex?

I never painted all male instructors with the same brush, and I am quite certain that I am not the one being narrow minded here.

I always let the admiral or any greenhorns take the helm as much as possible. It generates a lot of self confidence in the newbies and gets the Admiral prepared when or if I end up over the side!

If you refer to your wife as 'the admiral,' you might wanna rethink your perception of chauvinism.
