It’s hardly a controversial stand to say that we at SPORTSbyBROOKS do not in any way support prejudice or discrimination on the basis of gender, race, creed, or what-have-you, but we’ll say it anyway. While many college sports fans dislike Title IX for requiring equal scholarships and opportunities for women’s sports, we’ve generally been supportive - yes, it sucks that men’s water polo suffers at the hands of women’s field hockey, but men had it pretty good for thousands of years; the loss of a couple non-revenue sports isn’t the end of the world.
(Pic sort of related.)
But unfortunately, Title IX also gives our already litigious society just that many more opportunities to exercise their lawsuit-happy ways. It’s the gender version of the race card, and a high school coach in Indiana has decided to throw it in a big, stupid way.
