London Olympics and Female Warriors (boxers)

The “sport” of women’s boxing is listed as an event (for the first time ever) at this summers’ Olympic games. However, this dubious milestone will not mark the first time that women have entered a boxing ring ,because, for some time now, thanks to Feminism, women have had an equal right to be punched black and blue, just like men. Boxing is a dangerous sport for anyone, male or female, and I would argue that it should be banned entirely.

The sad case of a female boxer, Becky Zerlentes, serves as a poignant example (and warning). She was 34, and she died on April 3rd, 2005, following head injuries sustained during a boxing match. Her death was due to a blood clot on the brain ,caused by blunt force trauma to the head. She was wearing her required protective headgear at the time.

What about other sports such as soccer, basketball and volleyball? Are they safe for women? An article in the New York Times, entitled The Uneven Playing Field, May 11th, 2008, makes disturbing reading. The article cites studies showing that young women who play soccer, basketball and volleyball, suffer tears to the anterior cruciate ligament up to 8 times as often as men, in the same “jumping” sports, and hobbled knees are not the only injuries.

Who or what has turned us into a society that encourages women to place themselves in harm’s way, and legislates for that very possibility, through dangerous equality laws? In case any reader has failed to notice, there is an elephant in the room. I am referring, of course, to the feminist movement. It is the guilty party, and it is they who are waging war on women.

One thought on “London Olympics and Female Warriors (boxers)

  1. Your concern is in line with the Scriptures, which confirm that the woman is a weaker vessel than the man (1 Peter 3: 7). I also note that men only were obliged to take up arms and fight for Israel in biblical times (Numbers 1; Judges 4: 9).
