(FEB 25) It has now been
determined by the AIBA that the women boxers can now choose to
wear a skirt.
What now? Are female amateur boxers supposed to get on
their knees and say "thank you" for not having "gender
discrimination" enter into the "first time" Olympics in 2012 for
Why was it even EVER brought up as a possibility in the FIRST
PLACE, as something the female boxers may have to do to compete
in the Olympics---if it had not been made "optional."
And while we are on the topic of the Olympics, next time around----in the 2016 Olympics----lets have TEN weight classes for
boxers "like the males." Cramming women boxers into just THREE
weight classes defeats the point a little bit...don't you think?
Women "dropping" weight, "gaining" weight to fit in only
THREE weight classes?
Isn't "Boxing" very specific to weight
classes and fighting in the "proper" weight class?
