I seek to be competent in all that I do, but I have nothing to prove to anyone else. I'm a bit frustrated with the misogynistic tone I read in many of the Sailnet fora. I look forward to getting to know you and learn from you.
Welcome Renae.

We're of the same age. It's good to have you on board. Over time I've learned to weed through the muck on this forum and have been lucky enough to find some real friendships (in person) from my time here.

HerSailnet was started quite a while ago when it was probably needed more than it is today. Yes, more men than women post here but most of the men are thoughtful and respectful. The others just get ignored.

I hope you don't give up on the forum. There is a lot to learn here and I found that I made better decisions after being able to hear from different perspectives.

Re: Saying hello

Welcome, from a newer mod and relatively new sailor as well. I hope you find it welcoming here and pull up a chair to stay a while.

If you end up in the Chesapeake, you'll find plenty of people you can meet in person - I'm sure there are other forum members up your way, too.

Fair Winds,

Re: Saying hello

First off, I just wish to say welcome to the group. Getting used to any forum takes a little bit of time, it might take a while to get to recognize the players, and there is a list of usual suspects who chime in pretty regularly.

All that said, I am having a hard time seeing the misogyny, as defined my Miriam Webster. I'm just being honest. Maybe I am clueless, which easily could be the case btw. I just do not see an undertone of hate towards women. Now condescension, that I see every now and then, but that seems to be specifically towards one person, by another, but by and large not sexism based. Maybe this is due to the fact that I usually do not pay attention to who writes what, unless something stands out in my head, that, and I only read the posts that interest me, which are only 25% or so.

Don't give up on this forum, and stand your ground..there are some good people here, and a huge amount of knowledge between the members.
