    My kids (2 boys, 2 girls) don’t play sports much. None of ‘em, so it has nothing to do with gender but this is the same way I feel. I want it to be assumed that a girl and a boy can do the same things – on and off the field. And I want it to apply to race as well as gender. We are *this close* I think.

    I love this piece! I was just noticing the only girl on my son’s baseball team yesterday and thinking, “Wow, she’s better–a lot better than most of the boys” and no one treated her any differently–excellent!

    I get such a thrill when I see my strong confident niece tearing up the field at lacrosse and field hockey.

    This is a great story. Reminds me how far we have come and how far we still have to go to play on the boys field!
