Should women play sports? This article really clarified things for me.
There was lots of great evidence for why godly women should not play sports. For instance, it says
“most men…admire a woman who is reasonable healthy and fit; they are also attracted to a woman who is somewhat “soft” and cuddly.” but when women play sports, “many develop strong, muscular bodies. Female athletes also sneer, wince, push and fight just like the men.”
This article would have been just as timely 200 years ago as it is in 2005, when it was written.
