Thanks for acknowledging what a nice guy I am

I know folks here respect your opinions


As Baja points go, K38's a mushburger btw

Far as I can tell it's about surfing and bicycling and homoeroticism in the bathroom.

Deanís recollection of the plane crash in Lower Merced Pass Lake is far from what went on. I have watched his video and I have to tell you either Dean is living in a dream world or he is on the edge of his later years

Old men lusting after young women?

2017 women kicking the rockclimbing ass of 1977 young men?

Justifying now-unacceptable attitudes?

2017 young men insulting 2017 female cyclists?

All I know is that a thread that started by quickly devolving into the usual Supertopo "You're an as#@&%e. No, you're an as#@&%e" thread somehow evolved into a fairly intelligent discussion of male/female issues.

For which we should all be thankful.

Since this thread is rooted in political correctness, I have to point out that statements like this are a good example of ageism, an often overlooked yet unacceptable form of discrimination.

Right girls?

 The commentaries don't necessarily reflect my own opinions one way or the other, but the controversy seems relevant to the topic at hand.

Roy must be running for office. Or he's got a gf, or looking for one.

Things I'm not concerned about 😆

Great collection of takes on the issue which run parallel to discussions here, Roy

Expecting McEnroe to apologize is the epitome of PC absurdity

To be fair, I think the gap btw women and men in bouldering and sport climbing is less than in tennis

Hahaha!

I'm still floored by the shock and awe of your awesome selfie!

And yes, other factors notwithstanding, the primacy of power to weight ratio in the climbing game, (particularly in the sectors which you mentioned), would suggest that the gap will continue to tighten down.

To continue stirring the pot...

Bouldering and sportclimbing are the facets of climbing that I would say are the safest of many, and where performance is most dependent on simple strength to weight ratio, or hold size to weight ratio.

High ball, free solo, alpine, high altitude mountaineering, first ascents, especially ground up, gear protected hard stuff, runout slab, where danger and risk taking step in, all widen the gap substantially.

I don't have the rhetorical chops, investment in brinksmanship, or really the interest in hanging with this crew on such a topic. But I think it's a good one, and I have read all the posts.

I will say that my wife, Lisa Goldsmith, ex-nationally ranked triathlete, ex-professional bike racer (veteran of two Tour de Feminine de France, something which most Americans don't even know exists), and current women's masters (masters = over 40 years of age) Pike's Peak Ascent (mountain running) champion, agrees with you Kevin, on nearly all your points. And her politics in general are quite progressive.

Yeah, but does she send ground up 5.11 trad route first ascents in booty shorts that read "Pink" across the ass?
