and in addition you will never be SCOTW.on balance, I think I'd rather be an unidentified SCOTW on Sailing Anarchy than not (but then I'm a middle aged, bearded fugly, so not much hope and I haven't been exposed to a lifetime of sexism, so probably shouldn't comment anyway)
Does going sailing warrant the SA treatment??Didn't someone once say, this is SA. So expect everything! If you want PC, go to scuttlebut.
and yet I expect us to be gentlemenly when it comes to women. After all? Our moms are women.
But if a lady does something that warrants an SA treatment? Go for it.
Thank you; I shall set about removing my head from my ass forthwith. While I am thus preoccupied you may wish to consider whether it is reasonable to expect a level of editorial erudition from SA which rises above sophomoric locker room humor. Prior experience suggests that this may be a forlorn hope. Prior experience also suggests that female sailors (at least those who are any good) are sufficiently good humored as to tolerate this.Woody, the difference is obvious when you have a daughter, as I do. It shouldn't be that hard for anyone who doesn't have a daughter (Clean, would you want anyone looking at your young daughter/talking smack about how hot she is like this? check back with me in about 15 years).
It's simple. If the post is more about how hot the girl or woman is, without any meaningful reference to her sailing abilities or achievements, then it's junior high bullshit. If the post is about how great a sailor Dee Caffari or Sam Davies is, then by all means name them SCOTW. But if it's a teenage girl in a wetsuit, and the original post can't even be bothered to mention her name, then pull your head out of your ass.
Have you ever seen a post on this site about any of the top sailors, with the primary point being how hot they are? Hey, I don't give a shit about Bora's name or accomplishments... just look at his ass!
