That's bizarre. Whoever did this, how did that person manage that? It looks more like a publicity stunt to me.

Nah, it's not sexist/racist if it's a statement based on fact and not some prejudice. If I said that black people were better adapted to warm climates than white people, I wouldn't be expressing a racist opinion, I'd be stating a fact.

Your words "I'm not sexist at all, women are certainly better than men at many things, but reading maps and parking cars are not among them in my opinion"

This is a statement based on a prejudiced opinion. Where are your facts?

I'll make sure to ask her if I ever meet her.

Westyboyo, with your negative attitude towards women I guess you are the kind of guy who likes his girlfriend staying at home, doing all the cooking and cleaning ,reads your every wish from your lips, bring your slippers and kiss your feet when you come home, right?

For you Westie:

"Male chauvinism is a term used to describe the belief that men are superior to women. It is often used interchangeably with "sexism" and is closely associated with misogyny and perceptions of women as inferior to men, especially intellectually. The unqualified term "chauvinism" is far more likely to refer to a male chauvinism than female chauvinism in the context of chauvinism as sexism.

Male chauvinism has been defined as a “blind allegiance and simple minded devotion to one’s maleness that is mixed with open or disguised belligerence toward women. It is also usually associated with an unconscious magical ritual to ward off anxiety engendered by these same women.” [3]

Male chauvinism was apparent long before the feminist movement, and studies indicate that it has been as long-believed and practiced as racism and religious persecution

This isn't even a debate. It's a fact that men are much better drivers than women. Obviously we see this everyday but for high profile proof one needs look no further than top class racing. If women were as good at driving then were are all the female F1 drivers or female WRC drivers. There's none and the reason is simple, they're shit at driving. If a woman could even come close to the standard one of the smaller teams would give them a drive as they would bring in more sponsorship money.
