I don't believe 5Cats merits such backlash over his comment. Where it`s true that women`s sports should be taken as seriously as their male counterparts`, this is simply not so. Take the WNBA for example, or women`s baseball, still absent since it`s disbanding in the mid-20th century. Whether or not our society should be more open-minded in its approach to athletics is a valid debate to have...but to jump all over 5Cats simply by voicing an opinion that is so obviously in-tune with is so apparently the norm just seems wrong somehow. By the way, I played rugby all through college, and then for NATO, and let me tell you: Those female ruggers were some of the toughest athletes I`ve ever seen. It`s shaped and broadened my personal view on women in professional athletics, but our culture needs to catch up. Don`t blame 5Cats for reporting our reality.
