And what makes you certain these alleged self-styled women aren't, say, cross-dressers or trans-sexuals just trying to pick up a sailor, as they would in any port?

All this male-female talk is, frankly, a violation of the forum's "be nice" rule. There are after all FIVE human genders. Male, female, and three, yes three, types of hermaphrodites. Now if you take five genders, treat them all equally, and add in the number of trans-sexual options sugrically available these days...I'm not sure how many separate restrooms and plumbing fixtures that requires, but the odds are virtually 100% that at least SOME of the forum members are neither male nor female in the usual sense.
With this piece of thread drift, I just thought in case there is ANY question, I want to make it clear that I have no confusion about my sexuality; all male, all heterosexual and always will be, always was.

Yes, if you just take the words from the sentence that you quoted. However the full statement was that the people who want to post something that is obviously important to them, should be able to do so without receiving implications that they are somehow "weak" for doing so. No-one is going to feel better because somebody has told them to "man up" and neither will it promote other posts, which are the lifeblood of this forum, from people who do not wish to subject themselves to the barrage. Myself, i sometimes think that people do get a tad upset over things that they should not. But i just say nothing rather than be outright negative and disparaging about what bothers them. The real idea of these forums is, i think, to get together with other folks of a shared hobby/lifestyle and assist and inform and hopefully, just entertain each other. I could be totally wrong of course, there is always that option.

Yeah, it's important that one knows the female understands "I'll knock you up in the morning" or what "bangers and mash" are or good forbid, what a "neep" is. Never mind that you pyromaniacs keep asking for "torches", and think a well dressed car needs a "bonnet". Mind you, you got it right that a car's "boot" is in the a$$ end.

I am all for either more restrooms or just one.

But those "SOME" are a pretty small number. Smaller than the number of women that long to get a boat, toss most everything and go cruising.

I am glad so many are so very accepting around here as I don't fit well in most places I go.

During a checkout in Long Beach the instrructor shouted, "hey there's Angelina Jolie topless." naturally we looked. He said that was part of his pre Pacific crossing crew check. If you don't look, you don't go...

He also took the opportunity to throw the life ring overboard for the MOB drill to see haow we reqcted with a distraction.

"He also took the opportunity to throw the life ring overboard for the MOB drill to see haow we reqcted with a distraction."

Onceuponatime I was in a class returning home late one afternoon and the instructor threw a cushion overboard while we were all relaxing. He shouted "MAN OVERBOARD!" And again. And then said what, isn't anyone going to do anything?

We all just looked at him, and suggested as a group that since HE threw it overboard, HE could go back and get it.

This is why sailors gamble, play poker, shoot craps. If the guy who went OB owes someone money...odds are they'll make an effort to recover him. (Him, her, or whatever you call the other three.)

Good one.

I threw the ring over once on my crew and shouted, "Skipper overboard!" and sat down and folded my arms.

It was disheartening then highly disconcerting as the ring, drifted into the channel, drifted in front of a barge and got run over by the barge.

I contemplated having a funeral for myself...

The question that has to sit along side that is why are there a lower percentage of males who don't have a pic of themselves (from the man who does not have an avitar)
