Yes. Please Go On.

How would you describe your relationship with your mother? Your sisters?

“This article examines how skiing landscapes are constructed as masculinized spaces,” states the abstract for Memorial University of Newfoundland assistant professor Mark C. J. Stoddart’s piece titled “Constructing masculinized sportscapes: Skiing, gender and nature in British Columbia, Canada.


[A]ccording to Stoddart, ski slopes are places “for performing athletic, risk-seeking masculinity,” and “less risky areas of the skiing landscape may be interpreted as ‘gender-neutral’ or feminized space.” Honestly, to me, Stoddart’s insinuation that risk-taking is a man’s thing is what really seems sexist here — but he insists that it’s the ski slopes that are the problem, and that “the social construction of sport landscapes shapes gendered power relations.” “Through skiing, participants construct the meaning of gender and place, privileging masculinized versions of the sport,” the abstract continues.

I think this idiocy has always been amongst us. However, it is no longer shielded in the back rooms of dusty old university buildings with the advent of social media and 24 hour news. These people now have a platform to begin shouting their idiocy and the social networks frame it as if it is normal, mainstream, and makes up the general thinking of people.

Leftists do that stuff because it is their religion, so losing money doesn't matter -- plus they had the Soviet Union funding them, then when that dried up, Bill Clinton and democrats in congress set up replacement funding from taxes.

So the right doesn't do it because there's no money in it for them. Yes, universities get rich, but only university money from lefty donors. Not money for backers.

Personal Profile

Dr. Stoddart's research draws attention to three sets of linkages.

First, it highlights the ways in which local communities and environments in Newfoundland are embedded within and shaped by large-scale systems of media communication, tourism mobility, petrocapitalism, and climate change policy debate.

Second, it demonstrates how social practices and discourses related to tourism and recreation are intimately bound up with technologies and nature.

I mean, I get the gist from context ... ski slopes require coordination so sexist ... but the sentences make absolutely no sense.
-------------------------------
So, here's what I'm getting from the abstract:

1. Steep slopes encourage risk taking and demonstrations of athletic prowess.

2. Risk taking and athletic displays are inherently masculine

3. Ski areas are constructed in such a way as to "privilege" the steep slopes.

4. The less steep slopes are off to the side, i.e. "marginalized."

5. Ergo, the construction of ski areas is sexist.

Now, we can poke all kinds of holes in the assumptions behind those statements, but what he never seems to consider is the fact that the ski areas are like that BECAUSE THE GODDAMN MOUNTAINS ARE LIKE THAT. Ahem. Sorry for shouting.

262 Yet almost all my cross country skiing and snow shoeing friends are men, all the women and girls just love them some downhill and think X-country is like woodcutting, an admirable solitary activity for socially awkward yet responsible men.

This is despite the fact that in my experience, women who wear heels everyday, admittedly a vanishing population these days, are right from the first day the best Telemark skiiers I have ever seen.

But then what do I know, maybe the menfolk of North Idaho and interior BC are just unusually feminized...
