Full quote provided for context.

Caldwell’s approach to gender and sport has shifted over time. As she recently tweeted, “I think every time I said that I wanted to ‘jump like the boys’ I was reaffirming that boys are the standard. I don’t think that helps gender equality.”

So if she has a message to send, Caldwell says, it’s not just aimed at girls.

“I want it to be to boys and girls, men and women everywhere. Quit talking about gender. Be your best. It doesn’t matter what’s between your legs. Go out there and be your best,” she says. “I always wanted to be like the boys for a long time, and now I like it when my coaches treat me like me.”

As I said there are more differences between males and females than what is between their legs.

A lot of that difference is made up.

Especially given the surgeries that are possible nowadays!

not really. Just take take a person that was born male surgically altered to be female and stand that person together with 10 women who were born women. I guarantee you I could pick out the one who was surgically altered to be female. She’s be one who is biggest and strongest.

First off, it was a joke.

Second off, I guarantee you that you will not always be right.

true, I would not always be right, but the majority of time I would be.

Have you ever seen a woman weightlifter before?


Men are bigger and stronger on average. All men are not bigger and stronger than all women.


I’m glad we could come to this understanding.
