Feminism at half-cock.


It seems that women can only be accepted

as possible almost-very-nearly equals

when they play competitive 'contact' sports

(boxing, football) and play men's games

in male-created hierarchies.

All sport is hierarchical. If there is no hierarchy then it is not a sport, even when the activity is sporting and it is a team game. One aspect of male team sports, particularly when the match is televised and beamed into pubs, is that when a male competitor get slightly wounded they play act that the wound is worse than it is. They will act as if their injury could threaten their career, their finances, their sex life, their actual life. When women compete in games of rugby and football they will wound each other. But when televised, women competitors do not play act at being in agony when felled by a fellow player. Instead they get up and get on with the game. In this regard there is a lack of ego in women's rugby and football, which makes it more wholesome than the more moneyed and show off-y male version of sporting competitiveness.

Yes, Bearz, men 'do drama' on the fields, when women can easily do the same thing in the kitchen.
