This extremely sexist article talks about an important issue in sports altogether; brain trauma. Obviously brain trauma is a serious issue, but it's a risk in all sports, and the object of Olympic Boxing isn't to badly hurt the other person, but rather to out point them. She tries to say that football has a better objective that is less violent, which may be true, but really doesn't accurately depict the type of boxing that occurs.
What about diving? Gymnastics? Pole vault? So many of these sports can involve brain injury.
My big problem about this article is that it singles women out as 'not being the warriors' and talking about biological reasons why men are more aggressive, and thus more deserving of risk-taking that results in brain damage. I encourage all athletes to look into the health risks involved in their individual sport, but not because they should be at home making potatoes for their husbands, but because there are real risks in every sport. I also feel that her pointing out that men commit murder at rates 10% higher than women was funny - She was trying to make it sounds like an anomaly, however she further proved that men and women are biologically and psychologically similar in a lot of cases, and are capable of doing equal good, equal evil, or risking equal amounts.
What are your feelings on this? I think the article is stupid and misconstrued, and would be much better if it just talked about the cold hard statistics in sports and brain trauma as a result.
