I'm not being sexist and it's important we recognise the issue of the risk averse female, RaF.
The only reason the human race has become the 2nd most advanced life form on the planet is the RaF.
While males beat their chests and tried to out do each other in male bravery, and died, the Raf kept the race alive.
In the last 40 years the Raf seems to have drifted into 2 main employment zones, Teaching and Charities.
So we now have a concentration of the RaF in areas where they try to remove risk from life, in schools and organisations like the Scouts etc.
Which is why we end up with helmets for all and Scouts that don't actually go out in the rain ...
My mother would not let me go swimming in the sea if it was raining .... really ... guess what she did for a living
And for all of those females that live on the edge .... have a chat with your sisters please. But not too loud or the race will die out ....
The best wave of my life is still out there.
