I used to play mixed netball against men who were hopeless. I'm goal defence/keeper and I'm 171cm tall and usually a pretty good defender but when playing against men who weren't even good players I had no chance defending against them. The team would just lob the ball and no matter how high I jump, the men just put their arms up to catch it. I was so much more skilled but no match against the men who couldn't even play.
Thanks for all the comments! I think maybe I internalised my reaction to it a bit and while probably a little unrealistic, having women recognized (even in their own league) would be nice.
I think since having kids - especially girls, I find myself challenging my own values stereotypes/beliefs/assumptions and feel maybe Id appreciate it if DH thought more about his too before he forms his opinion. 😃
