This interesting thread answered the original posters question on the first page, and continues to supply the same answer;
The question was not; "Are you sexist?"
The question was; "Is sailing sexist?"
Well, I think it's impossible for sailing
to be sexist. "Sailing" is not a person capable of bias or prejudice.
But of course there are people
who sail who are sexist. One definition of sexism is "attitudes or behavior based on traditional stereotypes of sexual roles."
Now, walk into any number of yacht clubs around the country and tell me that sexism is not alive and well. How many female "Commodores" do you see. How many men are coordinating the social gatherings?
Today, thankfully, there is a whole new generation of sailing couples that want nothing to do with the old timey yacht club make-me-want-to-puke scene. We just like to sail. Leave all that other $hit at the dock.
