Softball Season Opens

Softball season opened with a nice ceremony and a chance to see some high school girls in action on the field - truly amazing athletes! I'm happy to see my girls back on the field, too, even if G is still experiencing it as a spectator.

I was also impressed with my husband, who was appalled with the names given to the girls' teams, which mostly focused on stereotypical female images - fairies, unicorns, etc., none of which are particularly symbolic of athletic ability, competition, or success. I think that his exact quote was, "in this day and age, are girls really being confined to such roles?"

Feminists unite! We have an advocate. Love him!
