Not the intended goal

The Z Man has been watching a lot of women’s soccer lately, and somehow he came up with this:

If you’re inclined to the nurture side of the nature-nurture debate, soccer is a good example to use in your argument. In America, the relentless pressure on girls to play sports has resulted in high participation rates for girls soccer. SWPL-ville women always stick their girls in soccer as it is all white and safe. Plus, they are convinced it will allow them to sprout a penis, thus making them perfect women. The result is the US is very good at women’s soccer, while we stink at men’s soccer.

I am forced to assume that the guys, who have apparently reached their final forms, are at a disadvantage from that point on.

And I really don’t think I want to have to enumerate the qualities of the probably nonexistent “perfect woman.”

    If he’s right about the “final form,” then I’m glad my parents stuck me in field hockey instead of soccer when my doctor said I needed to run around more.

    (And yes, I know the stereotype of women’s field hockey in some circles….I didn’t stick with it very long, not even long enough to get on a league that wore those cool pleated skirts.)
