Hurrah for Feminism!

Time: about 1.30 today.

Place: Central Park.

Activity: Ultimate Frisbee.

Statement: "You take the girl."

If I had a dollar for every time I heard that statement, I'd be a millionaire.

Boy! Am I glad that generations of women have fought for equality and respect!

Ah, but sicne you seem to hear it a lot, I must ask --- is it true misogyny, or do you suck at Ultimate Frisbee?

You must be a boy.

I say that because I will bet big money that the other girl heard the exact same thing, and has multiple times.

The other girl was better than I was, too. That's why it's stupid and yet predictable. No matter the skill level, the girls will always cover each other. Ask your female ultimate-playing friends how many times they've heard it.

The girl ran faster than I did, was in much better shape.

Although, the first pass thrown her way, I grabbed it at the same time she did, but she snatched it away.

As far as my own skill, I'm no hard-core awesome player (though I could be if I were in better shape and played more than once a year or so), but I certainly don't suck. I'd say I'm average. Yesterday I made a great leaping catch, and then a perfect short pass to a teammate. Although I did drop another pass--the only other one I saw.
