  •  Kathleen Parker, meet Title IX (11+ / 0-)

    My daughter was a rugby player in high school and college (hence my screenname). If you think teenage women don't have the hormones for aggression, go watch a rugby game. And when they're well trained -- as more and more of them are thanks to Title IX and a lifetime of playing sports -- they're tough. One of the hardest-fought games I watched was the round-of-16 nationals game in 2005 between the Navy and Air Force academy women.

    I would have no hesitation at all at seeing any of these women as the firefighter coming to rescue me or the police officer tackling the gunman in the shopping mall.

      "Mamma Tiger" or "Mama Bear" defending their offspring come from if females don't have the hormones for aggression?  It's a silly argument to use.

      Just give me a good patch of dirt and I'll show you growth and well-being!
