My last and final point is that the very existence of this conversation proves an inherent inequality exists that is beyond the sport, because you are essentially saying that without rule parity with men, you won’t be taken seriously as a hockey athlete and in my opinion it means your aren’t taken seriously because your ARE a woman and to me that’s deeply saddening.
I’m fact I’m standing right now watching Canada and the USA play an inter-squad game. It’s fun! I don’t think they need the same rules; I love watching this kind of hockey. It’s beautiful to behold abs way way faster.
