Re Mission: Women in sports

So here is a video from the womens part of the maloof cup.  This skate contest had the most prize money for any skate comp.  $100,00o for first place mens and $25,000 for first place women.  Skateboarding is a mostly male dominated sport.  I dont think that the girls that do skate are buch or whatever. I’m not going to judge them and give them labels.   I know that the level of the girls skating is not nearly even close to that of the guys but its pretty amazing.  Think people judge women that participate in mostly male dominated sports because there just not used to seeing girls around and the sport is a manly sport, not for girls.  Also they could be afraid that the girls are better than them and could be a little scared.
