Girl Talk

August 16, 2012

Does anybody else get tired of seeing, in movies and on TV, the tough coach or drill sergeant or the show-off guy in a group saying, “Hello, Ladies” as a way to imply that the guys are weak?

I’m pretty sure I saw an article several years ago (which I can’t find), that said a professional football team tried to keep up with a women’s synchronized swim team, and folded in exhaustion.

In any case, it’s an outdated concept. Women have shown that they are plenty tough. Maybe not beefy or brawny, but tough? Oh, yeah!

So what I’d like to see on TV or in the movies is a woman addressing her team of other women, saying, “Hello, boys.”

Fair is fair, after all.
