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.

“No se imaginan el impacto que tuvieron en mi vida, lonque me inspiraron”, les dice Parker a sus míticos compañeros del Big 3.
🙌🇫🇷🇺🇸🇦🇷
Y, de paso, competitivo, informa que Manu le está ganando al tenis! 😂 #MerciTony
Para la eternidad. #Big3 #Spurs #Tim #Manu #Tony 🇺🇸🇦🇷🇫🇷🙌💪❤️🏀
Tremenda afirmación de Duncan que marca lo que bancó Parker. Pop fue mas duro con él que con Manu!! Y eso no es poco decir luego de lo que MG hizo “renegar” al DT. TP9 aguantó, escuchó, aprendió y creció hasta ser el armador de cuatro campeonatos!! 🙌👏

US Administration tried to de-fund the #SpecialOlympics, seeing it as some sort of charity event.
...Compare that to how #Indonesia treated its hosting of the #AsiaParaGames a few months ago: A source of national pride, and enthusiastic support for great athletes.
<1/4>
#Indonesia treated the #Paragames not as a charity, but as an opportunity to host a world-class athletic competition. Signs like this one were ALL over #Jakarta-- you could barely turn your head without seeing them. Portrayed the games as a source of pride and excitement. <2/4>
The excitement over the #AsiaParagames was genuinely broad-based: When I tried to take my kids to events like #basketball, #volleyball, and #fencing, I found that the tickets were all sold out. <3/4>

.@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
