Woman’s Weightlifting Athens Olympics:
(a great article from Lisabeth Darsh at CrossFit Watertown)
“Iâ€™m a woman and Iâ€™m confused: I love CrossFit even though, according to the dominant theories on women and competition, I should not. CrossFit, with its quasi-military culture, posting of standings, and inherent performance-oriented hierarchy should make me want to run screaming in the other direction toward some scrapbooking club or, at least, a nail salon. (Lucky for me, I donâ€™t like either place. In fact, Iâ€™d rather have my nails pulled out than endure another vacuous conversation centering on hair or nails or whether somebodyâ€™s butt looks big in a pair of jeans.) CrossFit is a competitive beast. We grunt, lift heavy weights, talk about â€œsnatchesâ€ and, when someone fails to meet our standards, we call them the pejorative term for a kitty. Iâ€™m not certain this is what our grandmothers would call â€œnormalâ€ behavior for women. . .” (Click the link above for the full article.)
