As women are we relegated to riding scooters? It seems like this statement perpetuates the idea that women are less capable than men. Although I don't personally ride scooters, I know a number of people of both sexes that do.
Crap. My sincerest apologies for that, Abby Normal :/ It was unwise for me to describe it as a "girly scooter" here on the forums.
You women are VERY capable of riding other types of 2 wheeled vehicles BESIDES scooters. I know this firsthand because I am acquainted with 2 other females that ride crotch rockets, and they are good at it!
However, I will admit that it's the MALES whom I do not acknowledge on the road when I get greeted by one (riding a scooter). Yes, I am that snobby rider that will play off the greet with a sudden flick of the bird once it gets closer and I see that it's a male on a scooter. Oh well. Even my female friends have done the same thing that I just described. It may be a bit confusing to understand if you're not a rider.
So please do not read my description to the scooter as sexist. I sometimes forget how things are misinterpreted by others online.
