Quote by Rebecca Lobo
There's nothing masculine about being competitive. There's nothing masculine about trying to be the best at everything you do, nor is there anything wrong with it. I don't know why a female athlete has to defend her femininity just because she chooses to play sports.
This quote challenges the stereotypical understanding of masculinity and its association with competitiveness. It emphasizes that being competitive or striving for excellence is not inherently masculine or feminine. It questions the need for female athletes to constantly prove their femininity when their choice to participate in sports should not be a challenge to their gender identity. Overall, the quote calls for a more inclusive and accepting perspective on gender roles in the realm of sports.
