Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

We can't :)

We may think we are, but at the end of the day, it's how we're perceived by others, male or female, even if we think we didn't make a comment regarded as racist/sexist/whateverist,...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Yes, it's probably time to move on... drummers are drummers, period.

Keep on drumming...

I won't reply to that question, you probably know the answer anyway...
