    This video is a prime example of the fake crusading of the recent trend of brands making commercials with political themes.
    In this one, you would think it was 1969...not 2019.
    No one thinks women are delusional for wanting equality...that is stupid.
    It is hard to say what is the message here. That women are all treated terrible and hateful by those bully men?
    Women Professional tennis started........ 46 years ago.
    Women in the Olympics......119 years ago
    Women professional golf...... 69 years ago.
    Women NBA....... 23 years ago
    Women NFL......... 20 years ago
    First woman NASCAR driver.... 70 years ago
    First woman Indy car driver....21 years ago.

    Fake crusade.

    The point is simple, women athlete are treated differently from men.

    An action or termed meant that male athlete is praised for a female is criticized for.

    Nothing too difficult to grasp if you just try.

    For reasons I don't fully understand, women's sports isn't the commercial draw that is men's sports.

    Even at the collegiate level.

    Sports, even amateur sports, is about commerce. The events and athletes that bring in the highest revenue get special treatment.

    It's as simple as that.

    No
    It makes the claim that if a woman get's mad - society tells her she is unhinged, crazy.... no they don't.
    I have never once in my life heard someone watching a sporting event that had girls in it... laugh or call them unhinged/crazy or anything else if they got mad.
    That doesn't happen. At all.
    If a girl is playing in the WNBA and plays well, no one says anything negative. They don't.
    If a girl wants to play football against boys...OBVIOUS reasons why people would be concerned about that - which has nothing to do with treating girls less than boys and everyhting to do with both HER safety and the integrity of the game.
    It's all bullshit.

    I think they were referencing the Serena Williams controversy, where she caught a lot of flack for arguing with the ref, whereas Johnny Mac used to get praised for his colorful personality when he did it. I don’t watch tennis, but I remember it being a big controversy

    I think the answer is pretty simple, women aren’t as entertaining as athletes compared to men. They’re obviously not as fast, strong, agile, and in most cases skilled as men.

    Meh... people use to laugh at John McEnroe all the time when he went on his daily tirades.
