I actually like the following a lot although technically it wasn't a question, it was an opinion.. but an opinion I completely concur with:
So forgive me for asking for this, but i think that there should only be one category, that being the best. No mens and womens categories, just
the sport and the best at it.
and I think we should also do away with the special olympics. Just because their brains are short circuited and/or they are physically impaired
shouldn't mean that they get their own olympics. Hell, theirs is even called special.
I think we should do away with those too. If a man can't prove he is the fastest runner out of everyone, he shouldn't be allowed to compete... even
if he DOESN'T have legs. Too bad, so sad. *snip* 'em.
If a team of synchronized swimmers can't synchronize because their brains are short circuited than they shouldn't be given a medal w/ first place on
it when there are teams of ppl w/ fully functional brains that can do it better and really are #1.
Seriously, I actually applaud your statement and agree whole heartedly. Quit catering to those of lesser ability just to make them "feel" like they
are great when in actuality they are only great compared with those beneath them, but pale in comparison to those who are better than them.
The gold medals and 1st place ribbons should only be handed out to those who truly deserve them. No doubt that women would lose to men more often than
not. That's why most of us should be at home taking care of our babies and our men
*no sarcasm whatsoever in this post..... I really think that was an excellent idea and support it 100%*
