OK, i am pretty out of the loop with gendered cycling debates, so sorry if this is very trite.
the following article has spurred lots of debate amongst friends of mine who are of the aggressive, messenger, vehicular cyclist variety. i honestly find it benign enough to ignore. i have two questions a) do you find this article problematic and b) if it's true that women ARE more inclined to desire bike lanes/be frightened of traffic than men (not saying it is), is it problematic to ignore that fact in favor of arguing that it's sexist? obscuring the issue?
