As an American, I am proud of Olympic Gold medalist Claressa Shields' feat in women's boxing at the Olympics --...." Why would you be "proud" Ms. Chavez? What part of watching two "women" ( and I use that term loosely) go at each other with fists? After reading the remainder of your column I can only surmise that you wrote that to put a politically correct patina on the rest of your piece. Why couldn't you have just come out and said it what you really mean: IT'S DISGUSTING!! Like women in combat it goes against a woman's innate tendency toward nurture, care and motherhood. I can only imagine seeing the feminist cheerleaders urging them on--"give her a left", "watch that right"- feminists indeed. They wouldn't be caught anywhere near it.
