Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I see it as corny and dumb, not derogatory. Sounds like something old people say.

Some people really truly like to be told what to do. They want their spouse to make the decisions and they go along. Nothing terrible about that. Its not for my wife and me its the way some people are. And statistically, 50% of those people who want to be told what to do -- are male. So maybe thats where the admiral thing comes from some times.
