The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

2020 coming at me like it’s personal.
I’m a huge Red Sox fan and I am so excited about their sub-luxury-tax payroll moves and cost-conscious roster construction! That’s why we’re in this, fans! Amazing job by them. Gonna buy a jersey that says “LuxTaxReset” on the back.
Fenway Sports is only worth seven billion dollars so you can understand them not wanting to pay an extra twelve million to have the best all-around player and most enjoyable personality they’ve ever had on the team for another year.

Good baseball nerd text/precedent thread by @marty_lederman on the controversial call against Trea Turner.

I'm a @Nationals fan. I still thought at the time the umps clearly were right.
I made a purposivist argument last night, but the text also backs up the umps... 1/
@marty_lederman @Nationals 2/ @marty_lederman gives the rule:
“[r]unner is permitted to exit the three-foot lane by means of a step, stride, reach or slide in the immediate vicinity of 1st base for the sole purpose of touching first base.”
The key word: "exit." And "sole."
Video:
@marty_lederman @Nationals 3/
Rule 5.09(a)(11):
In running the last half of the distance from home to 1st... he runs inside (to the left of ) the foul line, and in the umpire's judgment in so doing interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base... [then] the ball is dead [and runner is out]...

#OTD 1933, the Christie Pits Riot took place in Toronto, which I love to talk abt b/c it brings together my love of #TOHist #Baseball ⚾️ and #antifascista...a thread.
In the summer of 1933, Torontonians flocked to the city's beaches to cool down. At Balmy Beach local WASP youth didnt want to share the amenities w/ "foreign" visitors particularly Jews, so they organized the Swastika Club to intimidate the visitors. #TOHist #ChristiePitsRiot
Where would Toronto youths have got the idea of forming gangs and wearing swastika armbands to intimidate Jews? From reading newspaper reporting abt the rise of Adolf H!tler and the Nazi party earlier in 1933, and their anti-semitic rhetoric. (Not knowing where that would lead)

#BaseballInBritain #StarSpangledBanner at Wembley reminds me of thesis of @UMassAmherst PoliSci T.A., a Korean national & #Communist who argued wherever #Baseball was played American Imperialism followed. Brexit? Maybe the kids are home to take over the folks house payments? 😎
@KensingtonRoyal @MLBONFOX @MLB And the Shakespeare bit hit home. Turned down a paying gig Williamstown Theatre @WTFest because the @Yankees and @RedSox were in a pennant race. 😬

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
#365photochallenge
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...

.@realsportshbo revealed another ugly aspect to @NFL concussion story: Under existing terms of settlement with @NFLPA, board administering funds has denied most claims & major diagnoses such as behavioral issues & depression are not even covered. #labor #publichealth #oligarchy
.@nfl claims that many applications r fraudulent. Of course, people should defer to the league, since it's an expert in fraud. It misled its labor force for years about dangers of the sport & it has misled municipal governments into subsidizing its stadiums #GameRecognizesGame
This story represents almost everything wrong in #USA. #Oligarchy begrudges slimmest slices of pie to #labor, & we the #Idiocracy buy billionaires' merchandise made by more oppressed workers elsewhere & use $ from public treasuries to replace functioning stadiums for those with
