I thought this was a forum, a place where people talk to each other. Not a place where you instantly shut down anyone who disagrees with you.
That said, if you had argued your point instead of saying "You're not allowed to talk to me" maybe the conversation would have brought up other things.
You mentioned events like rails to riches. Your original post was about equal pay in competitions.
I mentioned that events like R2R draw way more guys. I've worked contests where every girl that showed up got a prize. Several in the smaller park events.
I think that's sad for the reason that we need to engage more with people. There's a huge push for that these days. Women specific events and programs to make people feel more comfortable, get them out there. Also women's riding is fucking awesome these days. I've talked about that a bunch on the forums the last few years. I'm more excited to watch some of the women's comps than men's. But you would know that if you talked to me instead of throwing up bizarre barriers.
Don't worry though. I won't reply to you again, because theirs no point, but the internet like everything else is a place to learn things, and challenge your opinions. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe you're right, but shutting down and throwing up walls saying "I already said it’s not possible to change people’s mind on the internet " is absolutely ridiculous.
If you can't debate in an open forum, in a simple discussion, good luck in the real world. Maybe your in college in that bubble world at the moment, but there's a whole world out there filled with differing viewpoints. At some point you're going to have to deal with that or you're gonna have a tough time out there.
I've coached girls, I've run smaller comps, but I'm misinformed with a lack of information because I'm a dude? To me, that comment is coming off as kind of rude.
