SWEDEN. Lady’s Run in Hudiksvall became a popular success, and the organizers are already overwhelmed with requests for notification of next year. Then there was the thing with the Chronicle of Mathilda Svensson published the same as full-page story from the contest in Hudiksvall Newspaper. “Nobody is driving with their sex.”
( This is som much text that I just slammed it into Google translate. I apologize but it vill give you English/American/Australian/ New Zeelanders and more a breif overlook. )
If Mathilda Svensson’s intention was to arouse emotions and debate so she managed to the point that HT put the lid på. Listen now my dear readers of Worldkustom. I do not want any web hate against Mathilda. It’s a free country!
As newspaper as Worldkustom finds it however interesting when a comment by director Sven Dehlin not fit until it shortened and trimmed by Hudiksvall Newspaper. That he gets over 50 charings the first day when he puts it on FB underlines the commitment of concerned. General principle that is. So here are Mathilda Svensson’s chronicle and Sven Dehlins comment, both in their entirety.
Nobody is driving with their sex
Throughout the week we have had Happy Hudik Summer Week in Hudiksvall. Every day it has been invited on new activities, vintage vehicles have had their day, motor sport has had its day, and the women have had their. But wait, the women? It is appropriate to consider how organizers think about Ladies Run, orienteering competition held on Friday. For the women to get a place in this male-dominated week so they must obviously have its own events.
To my knowledge there are no women running with their gender. Not men, for that matter. That it somehow would be advantages to having one or the other behind the wheel, I have never heard om.Tanken behind is certainly good. The competition might be seen as a way to include women in a privileged area where men would otherwise prevail.
But it must not be marketed with a pink car, include a prize for the best outfit or the urge to snack along the way. It just repeats once again that there would be male and female characteristics, when it really is the community that has decided that pink is a girl color.
Girl Competitions to be or not to be linked to something greater, namely the problem of what we choose to call things. It cements an ancient belief that we behave differently depending on the gender we were born with, where our personal characteristics becomes second place
I think of Bic, the company that makes pens. Two years ago they launched the girl pen. A little neater pen that was in the colors purple and pink. For those of us with female hands, because we can not possibly write in a traditional man’s pen. I think of Arla product Female milk drink, that girl milk for our girl bodys
Jag also think of how many of us routinely call a band that consists of girls for a girl band. Backstreetboys may be the reverse, namely a boy bands, but there is a genre. We would not call a rock band with male for boy bands. For a rock band with women does not apply to the same thing.
Ladies Run is just another example that women can not participate on the same terms as men without the prefix in front of the girl. Girl Pens, milk girl, girl bands and female competitions is the unnecessary segregation that stands between us and equality. Then we finally got to write with pens, drinking milk, playing in bands and driving. Without any first want to find out what we have in the pants.
I think it is incredibly low by HT that after such a successful Motor Week as Happy Hudik Summer Week insert a chronicle that it was in HT 19 July. To denigrate a rally that was so appreciated by the participants to several already on the day of the rally was conducted did sign up for next year’s rally. This year’s rally was additionally fully booked in no time and many more would have liked to attend if places existed.
The columnist seems to be totally lacking in knowledge when it comes to both the engine hobby like music and 50’s with the single goal to shoot in on feminism and gender quotas. She poses the question how organizers think about Ladies Run and talk about a male-dominated week in a privileged area where men prevail. I would like to highlight some how it looks behind the scenes.
Many women in the board and the municipal
Organizer Club Midnight Cruisers is a compound of many female members, a plurality of Americans own cars and with a board consisting of three women and two men. We have for almost a year working on getting into the program for the week and get all the pieces to fall into place. All the while supported and driven by Focus Happy Hudik by Tourism Manager Annika Bergström and Ulrika Beijer.
Several other compounds were also involved in the Motor Week. Wednesday was Dell Appliance Motorveteraner for, association with chairwoman and several women with their own vehicles. Thursday’s motor sport day was organized by SMK Hälsinge with more women board and a number of women active in rally sport. None of these compounds engine would somehow deliberately thwart women to have their own vehicle or hobby to get involved in unions.
No privilege for men.
It is not a privilege only for men. I can not understand what is meant by the response to a previous letter to the editor in the subject that women are not admitted on the same terms as men. Women do not have in any way been forbidden to participate in any of the week’s other activities and men’s columnist wants to pretend had no preference but to all regardless of gender have had the opportunity to participate on the same premises.
“You do not try to wedge feminism wherever not a fundamental problem exists.”
The jury who judged the cars and the women dress in the pedestrian area consisted of 3 women and 2 men even where a majority of women. There was precipitated spontaneously replica of one of the female jurors: Among the funniest thing I’ve done.
I therefore find it difficult to understand the term male-dominated week. I think that everyone should have the right to choose their hobby without having to be quoted and discussed in the perspective of gender feminists. You do not try to wedge feminism wherever not a fundamental problem exists.
How then could get the call to stop and snack somewhere along the road as something negative associated with the Ladies Run aggression against it, I do not even think about it behind. But I can explain organizer Midnight Cruisers and Focus Happy Hudik`s idea behind the call. Focus Happy Hudik tourist office and want to naturally attract tourists to the municipality therefore placed rally around Dellen in the finest possible environment with stops at various tourist attractions.
Another thought in this context is, I wonder what you have written about the club instead of the Ladies Run run a Commercial Run which is also a common occurrence in the classic car rally hobby.In a Commersial Run participates man with old work vehicles of different variety from schasmopeder, to trucks, buses and more. Of course dressed for the vehicle in terms of both vintage and task. Would you then from HT`s side somehow angled it as something negative against the working class?
with many years on the Board
