Cycler

There is a cycling club that has a large membership in my area, they call themselves the Lehigh Valley Wheelmen. All genders are members, but when I’ve recently openly expressed my lack of desire to join the organization simply due to the sexist nature of the group name, I get “schooled” by other women in the club how I shouldn’t take offense – this club has been around for over 60 years! I kindly point out that longevity of a group does not, in fact, remove the blatant sexism from the club’s name, but I’m seeing this female willingness to backslide on matters of principle lately.
