Yes, many men and women have traditionally certain traits that form their character as a result of societal attitudes, training procedures, peer and other influences and this applies to both gender groups. I can understand certain observations by Greg and I respect his position as a divemaster, however ,without trying to sound redundant , we still CANNOT lump either MEN or WOMEN together in a stereotypical group.
All women are NOT alike, and neither are ALL men. All male scuba divers are NOT alike and ALL female scuba divers are also NOT alike. Its these generalities that "paint the broad brush" that I'm trying to get posters to look beyond. These perceptions lead to prejudices and bigoted atitudes if allowed to go unchecked and unchallenged. Are we going to see the next presentation that states people of a certain race are better divers, or people of certain eye colors or hair colors are better divers , or people of certain nationalities are better divers, etc etc etc ?
I have observed all of the characteristics that have been posted, but my point remains the same and that is that this does not apply to ALL men or either ALL women ( or even most of either group ). Can we please move beyond the stereotyping ? THATS ALL (pure and simple )Peace !!!!!!!!!!!!
