Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
Um... what?

Heard on the radio today...

"Children playing sports can recieve head injuries. This means that girls might get head injuries too!"

Er... okay? Why is this news?

*skritches non-concussed girl-head*

The statistic that girls are more likely to get concussions was actually interesting, but that lead off? WTF? Kids + sports = injuries. What has gender got to do with it? Unless, of course, you think girls are pwecious little flowers that must be protected from even the slightest bruising.

*snicker*

Clearly someone still lives in an internal world where girls still always wear dresses and never engage in sporting activities unless it is gymnastics or something "girlie"...

People suck sometimes. >.<

Re: *snicker*

*snerks*

Anyone who thinks you don't get them there is silly. *remembers quitting gymnastics after a fall that involved hitting her head and back in a bad, bad way, no permanent injury but scary as all fuck*

But yes, it was very much the tone of the announcer. OMG, girls might get hurt! Stop them! Stop them! Bwaaaaaaaah! *adult male bursts into very manly tears of terror for pwetty, pwetty widdle girlies*

Every time I think how much better it is than my mom's day, and then I hear that kind of attitude.
