He must have read the “editorial” column that said “Little Women” was not for boys.
I foresee a lot of fine-print ignorance in this kid’s future.
You aren’t supposed to know some things..yet!
It’s a good thing that people—men and women— can get together to meld their talents and abilities. Otherwise, we’d be up the creek w/o that proverbial paddle as a race.

It is not just endurance where the games are different. Watch women’s beach volley ball at the highest levels sometime. The shots the men take are often based more on strength of delivery, but the women finesse the shots and are more capable with the tricky shots like floaters that throw off the opponents’ idea of where the ball will go.
