Because as a kiteboarder we'll never earn as a soccer player in the lowest league and denying envy makes us machos 8)

Admittedly, I have 3 daughters and a wife who never lets me forget my gender. The only other "man" in my household is a Chihuahua who thinks he's tougher than the big dogs, but is really kind of a patsy. Am I the only one who cringes at the title to this thread? There have to be some tough-as-nails women kiters out there who can put the "men" on this forum in their proper places. "Why kitesurfers are tougher than soccer players" would be a better choice of titles in the 21st century, no? :-?

90%+ of the kiters just mow the lawn, sorry, with football you at least get some excercise.
This the truth

There are probably other folks who are not comfortable calling men “men” but that sounds nuts.
Women certainly can withstand more pain but are not as strong. They also could be manly beyond what many men are. And US women soccer or Israeli/US/.. army girls prove that easily.

Still, our language is built on reality of human history and has a lot to do with all the sex roles of animal kingdom which all crazy man hating feminists can’t stand (nor enjoy nor get)

So let reality kick in and change the language. Let women appear strong, and represent bigger portion in the sport. Trust me - language change will follow.
Till then it’s all just hysteria and affirmative action.

Women in soccer are more men than men.
They play technically cleaner and don’t fall like drama queens when fouled.

Life is unfair like football or soccer but so popular nowadays...
Can't bullshit anybody on your board :
Kitesurfing is a fair game
Fair winds
