Re: Women in the dojo...VERY politically incorrect...

The successful opposite sex relationships will of those who find common ground and work together toward a harmonious relationship that model the elements of a successful marriage, i.e. good communication, respect all around.
Can someone tell me what this sentence means???

If we cannot see our partners on the mat as gender/race despecific, how can we have harmony with them.
By simply recogizing differences without making judgements about people's character based on physical attributes. I happen to be african american...I don't mind people noticing that...Its a part of who I am. I would just rather they don't make assumptions about my character based on that.
