I didn’t say everything does, but in this case I think it’s an assumption that the women can’t handle it. No way they’d drop it if it had to be the first sector in the men’s race for some reason.Not everything needs to be sexism. Also then why organise a female edition at all?
sexism isn’t binary. It’s perfectly possible to do something that benefits women while still having that thing affected by sexism, like creating a very short PR and cutting out pave sectors because you don’t think they can cope.
