I'm not entirely sure you know what point you're making besides being upset that I called someone out for being sexist. Anyways, the closest I can get to what you're trying to say he said a little better above. In summary: "everyone knows it's easier if you're a hot girl..." yeah... well first that's kinda just wrong (seriously ask any young and attractive girl how their being young and attractive has helped them in the music business in any way other than having middle aged guys slobber over them and ask if they live SRV) and second it's just a boring and reductive argument. Someone came to the forum and asked what she's doing right and the immediate response was "well she's hot." There's no way to view that as anything but ingrained sexism. As he dismisses the hard work many people who busk (or as he earlier and again incorrectly and as a poor taste joke referred to it as "begging") without regard you gotta wonder what is his purpose in joining the conversation? It seems like it was solely to say "it's easier if you're a hot girl." That's it, that is entirely what he decided to contribute and blew off everything else. Again... if he had to say it and has no other thoughts... yeah that's sexist. As for gender assumptions. Yeah, it's good to use the singular they/their unless you know and I know that I'm not always good at that. But honestly, on a forum that tends to lean towards traditionalism and is almost entirely full of 45 year old plus guys... well going with literally anything else but he/him is asking for a tread to get locked.
