Title 9 is probably the biggest blow ever to American manhood. Nothing else has contributed as much to the rise of estrogen levels, pussy-ness and loss of balls in American men. The day feminists and lawyers conspired to eliminate many male collegiate athletic programs is a dark day in our history as men.
The loss of manly sports like wrestling, hockey, rugby and even football (in some schools) has been replaced by the squealing and yelling of young women on a deserted soccer or lacrosse field in front of 50 fans, and by the sweating and grunting of stocky dykes playing an intense game of softball.
The irony is that all female collegiate athletic programs are funded by 2 sports played by men: football and basketball. The athletes who play these 2 sports bring in the most money and thus the opportunity for the schools to have toher teams.
I know there are exceptions- there always are. Some female basketball programs earn money, and in some schools other sports are the biggest moneymakers.
But I wonder how popular UCONN women's hoops would be without the men's team that brought the school to prominence. Not very.
Maybe when I have 17 yr old daughters applying to college and who will get an athletic scholarship, I'll change my mind. Maybe.
"COURT RULES AGAINST MALE ATHLETES. An appeals court panel upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit claiming that federal education officials discriminated against male athletes in enforcing equal opportunities for women. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed a ruling that the National Wrestling Coaches Association and other athletic groups failed to show that the antidiscrimination law known as Title IX directly caused a reduction in men's sports." -AP
