You're still not answering my question: what makes it unethical?

I'd add another one: what makes you uniquely qualified to decide that it is unethical? Part of being free, adult people is having the right, and the responsibility, to decide ethical matters for ourselves.

A quick Google search will show you that women-only classes are commonplace: fitness classes of all kinds, instruction in riding motorcycles, bicycle repair, martial arts, outdoor skills -- even in software development and judging beer...

What's the common denominator among all of these? They all involve activities that have traditionally been the domain of men. Does that tell you anything about the difficulties women face in learning any skill that's seen as "masculine?"
