I do not understand how women can still enter any kind of competition with men. It is utterly disheartening and infuriating.

The organizers of events should just make every competition for men since that is where all of this is headed if something does not change.

It is a balance between giving up your passion or not letting the unfairness get you down, I imagine. But yeah, as far as I am concerned 2nd place woman won 1st.

Which is exactly how we record it at SheWon.org . The males' names appear nowhere on the site--just those of the women who (really) won.

I do understand that (the passion and love of a sport) but on some level, women that enter competitions and see big hulking guys in their very own category must just feel a gut punch and it may very well affect their performance. I don’t know. It is just so sad to me. All of it.
