If ever there was an idea custom-made in a Jay Leno monologue, this was it. Females can play sports just like men, maybe even better. Isn't that like how females can make this country better if they were president? Whatever happened to gender equality?

I tend to sympathize with the arguments women have for their equality rights, though, perhaps because I am one.
When it comes to the topic of gender, most of us will readily agree that men are more dominant than women in many ways. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of women actually beating men in things such as sports. Whereas some are convinced that men, hands down, easily taking the dominance in sports deserving their title; that may be true, however, there are some women that can outplay men in certain sports. Whether it is track, basketball, or even wrestling, sports will never be only made for one gender.

Females have grown to be known as the ones that "belong in the kitchen." They have also been titled to be no competition for men, so they should not even try. Yes, men are stronger and more built, but women can easily play the same sports men can. Take basketball for instance. It is known as a man's sport, but it does not mean women are not fit for it. Females have proven themselves to be just as endured for there to be a WNBA.

For people to say women do not belong on the courts or the field is quite a humiliating statement. Not for the girls, but for the person who says it themselves. Females have worked hard to be treated equally. We may not be as strong as men, but we do deserve our recognition in all the sports men claim that are theirs. Females can play sports just as well as men, maybe even better.
