    FFS, is there no end to this feminist bollocks? It's all one ever hears on Radio 4 these days!

    Actually the first person on Mars, be they male or female or not sure, should be a pensioner, as old as Methuselah, because it doesn't matter if their DNA is shot to hell by cosmic rays on the several months long journey there.

    Why, does it need cleaning first?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    I thought you would be glad if one of those types of feminists left.

    The first person on Mars should be the person most qualified for the job. Any other criteria is racist, sexist and/or homophobic.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    And what is the qualification for "opening the door of the spaceship?" Because that's what being "the first person on Mars" entails - the crew will almost certainly be mixed so the choice of who exits first is political only.

    Yup, I'd agree so the single, white, home owning, healthy, employed, car driving, non smoking, straight guy on the team hasn't a bloody hope in hell.
