The issue of women in sports is something that I am very interested in.
I played soccer on a boys [jv] soccer team back in high school, because there was no girls team and little attention was paid to Title IX even though it existed at the time.
I was a woman coach of boys U12 and U14 soccer teams before that was a common occurrence.
I know the role that sports can play in keeping young girls in school and out of trouble.
So while I'd like to get my panties in a bunch over what is going on right now I know that when overwhelmingly confronted with differing viewpoints people tend to withdraw and get defensive, resulting in an escalation of the situation and nothing good ever coming out of it.
I'd like to ask people to consider making something positive come out of all of this by supporting women in sports and donating to http://www.womenssportsfoundation.org/
You can donate on line and the smallest donation amount is $9 though I'd like to suggest donating $10.50 in "honor" of KNBR 1050
Just a thought.
