Well...this was A LONG TIME AGO right? Well, a long time ago, women were thought of as sammich makers and house cleaners. Maybe OB1 was a sexist and thought Leia's place was in the kitchen, and not on the field killing Sith?

Maybe she wasn't good at making sammiches...and so she wasn't allowed in the kitchen...so they gave her a blaster and out to fight the Empire...

Maybe Luke was more force-sensitive than Leia.

No, there were female jedi in Ep. III and in Ep. II i believe, he probably believed that Leia was too old to be taught in the ways of the Jedi and so he believed that Luke at the time was possibly the last hope they had left since he was pretty well taught in the ways of the force...just a guess though

Luke was also too old. Yoda said it himself.

Yes well, desperate times require desperate measures.

Luke couldn't get the traditional training Obi Wan got, what with the Jedi Order outlawed under penalty of death. Luke had an aptitude he never developed until Obi Wan gave him a crash course, then began to advise him from the spirit world (I wonder if he taught Luke's subconscious mind while asleep? That would be interesting.)

Yeah but he still started before Leia did, both are the same age apart from the odd minute between them, my guess is that he still thought there was a chance with Leia after seeing the skill that Luke had shown even though he was too old and plus Leia would be their last chance if Luke had died, Obi Wan may have not realised this but it's just a shot in the dark

Maybe it was just OB1 that was sexist.

...maybe he just darned forgot because the guy was old. Or maybe he was only thinking of Luke when he said that, because Leia didn't seem like the Jedi type to him. *shrug*

Maybe because Leia was monitored due to being a Senator.

There was a scorpion once who wanted to cross a river, he saw a fox and said 'will you carry me across this river?' The fox said 'If I did that, you'll sting me.' The scorpion replied, 'well if I did that we'd both die.' So the fox thought about and decided to carry the scorpion across the river, half way across the scorpion stung the fox, as the poison started to kill the fox he questioned the scorpion 'why did you do that? now we'll both die.' And the scorpion said 'I can't help it, it's in my nature.'

There's your answer, if you don't understand then I guess that'll be another pwning from me to you wink

That is very similar to an old story that Native Americans have, only it is about a rattlesnake and is during a boy's "becoming of a man" when they have to go out into the wild on their own for a certain amount of time. The snake talked him into picking it up and the boy asked the snake why he bit him...the snake replied, "you knew what I was when you picked me up"
