TITLE X Shooting (climbing, motorcycle, etc.) instructors often prefer to teach women. Unlike men, they bring no pre-conceived, often wrong, notions to class. The ladies know nothing and they know it. Empty slates, they tend to catch on quickly, fear is rarely a factor: they’ve been indoctrinated at school that “the boys do it; so can you”, and they haven’t a clue that their carabiner could have been made on a Friday afternoon or (worse) a Monday morning by a person who was feeling bloated at the time. (As you plummet, think “equal pay”.) Hear me roar.
