Well. There you go. A straight-up admission that 14-year-old boys are bigger, stronger and faster than women feels like an exception to the rule in this day and age, and that’s because it is. Take Lloyd’s former teammate, the ever-obnoxious Megan Rapinoe, as an example of the rule. Rapinoe recently declared that she would be just fine with a man taking a spot on the USWNT. (Conveniently, those comments came shortly before her retirement from soccer.) In 2020, Rapinoe claimed that boys have no advantage over girls. [firefly_poll] “To every girl out there, to every boy out there who watches this team, who wants to be on this team, or just wants to live their dream out, you are not lesser just because you’re a girl. You are not better just because you’re a boy,” Rapinoe said. Now, if you want to quibble over what she meant by “better,” then sure — boys are not “better” in any moral sense simply by virtue of being male. The quality of your character does not hinge on how fast you can run a mile. But if Rapinoe was trying to say that girls are just as big, just as strong, and just as fast as boys… well, her former teammate has some news for her.
Haha. They should beat us. Bigger, stronger, faster! Boys always gave us a run for our money! It was great prep. https://t.co/QCuxA1jM40— Carli Lloyd (@CarliLloyd) November 9, 2023
