Hmm, maybe we're seeing something that isn't there (or reacting to expectations regarding women and decorum that we experienced when playing team sports) but the cluck-clucking on the part of the commentators following last night's WNBA dustup seemed disapproving in way that we don't often hear when male hoopsters get into altercations. Basketball is a physical game. Anyway, sportswomen: thoughts? [Redlasso, USA Today]
I'm sorry, I don't agree that as role models for young women and girls that these players can't express their frustration or anger.
While I disagree with settling differences this way, I believe that girls and young women need to know that it is okay to get angry.
I'm not buying the idea of them always being friendly - life doesn't always present friendly situations.
