  1. We're not a race, we are a gender. Invest in a dictionary.

  2. Because it is a stupid generalisation, there are bad male drivers and bad female drivers.

It's offensive in the same way that you would be offended if someone told you that all men SUCK at asking for directions, among other things (ie: knowing the difference between race and gender).

Please don't generalize all women in one category - the idea of that in and of itself implies that you don't see women as individuals. THAT is what is insulting and offensive to me personally.

I think you mean sex rather than race.

I suppose if I was a driver I might be offended, but as I am not I couldn't care less. Moreover, years of indoctrination by my husband have left me with the conviction that women are bad drivers as well.

Because they, as a "race", do not. As individuals, many of them are more likely to get into accidents, but being cautious is not a bad things. More men could learn from them.
