As a man I wonder what is behind the women's only kayaking events? I haven't seen where women are weaker paddlers than men. Some paddlers are strong and some are weak. Some are slow but skilled. Others are fast but less skilled. To me I see no correlation to sex.
I'm really suspicious that women only paddles, classes , festivals and symposiums are hiding something from the rest of us. Is that is the only time they bring the really secret good snacks? What goes on at these secretive events?
