The message I want to send my daughter is this: You are an awesome girl for not giving in to pressure to be and look a certain way. I want her to be proud to be a girl.
And she is starting to be. She is already vigilant about women’s rights. She does not understand why there are separate men’s and women’s sports teams,
About 30 seconds after puberty I would think.
The reason being that the adult hormone packages are so different that the lads will beat the shit out of the lassies in just about any exercise other than equestrianism and childbirth.
Even archery results are significantly different….
