Yes, in all my orienteering experience (or anything that involves reading a map), some prick always grabs the map from my hands muttering something about women not being able to read maps and loudly takes us several miles in the wrong direction. Invariably the person who monopolises the map is somebody who's bad at map reading and good at shouting, rather than somebody who is good at map reading and also good at shouting, leading me to believe that you can only be a good navigator if you're bad at shouting. I wouldn't mind if I or one of the other non-shouty people in the group had the map, as long as we got it right.
I am very good at reading maps and navigating, and if I ever go on a walking expedition again, I'm going to bring my own secret map and go off on my own when somebody houty grabs the map. This will however lead me to be the person who ends up making the tea when everybody else arrives home some hours after me having walked round in circles several times, shouting, but never mind.
If I ever go walking with you, I shall place myself entirely in your hands.
