A Short Olympic Observation + My Mom

Yesterday, I was discussing the Olympics with my mom. Specifically, we were talking about the women’s alpine race and the crashes a few of the athletes took.

She is about to go on a ski trip, and said it made her nervous. I said it made me want to race down a mountain and fly through the air after launching myself off a jump.

And then, my dear, educated mother said, “I just worry about those girls.”

There we go, women athletes can’t be athletes and they can’t be women. They are simply girls who need to be protected.
