There is a forum that has been going for a couple of days now about a retailer in the Seattle area that had chosen to offer a woodworking class that was exclusive to men only, and they had another class that was offered to women only that was called sawdust therapy for women.
What I have found the most interesting however is the comments from some who believe that there should never be an area where women are prohibited to the same areas that men are permitted, but yet these same people have no problem with excluding men from the women’s areas. Case in point…it is wrong for the above mentioned store to provide separate classes for men and women…but yet it is perfectly acceptable maybe even encouraged to have a woodworking site that is designed exclusively for women.
Then there were also comments from what I would consider to be well intentioned that explain how women can not only be equal but are actually better at many many things than their male conterparts…if that is actually the case then to be perfectly frank and honest one would have to admit that then yes there is a difference and women are superior to men.
Now to set the record straight and to be perfectly clear on this before I am labled as a sexist pig…I believe that women should be allowed the same opportunities as men but they should never be given any advantages sither…If it is to be a LEVEL playing field then by all means make it level.
