Tayla Harris, a pseudo professional women’s football player and boxer, was interviewed recently for one of her periodic puff pieces in the daily rags and was asked what she has been doing recently, and lists the things:
- lots of personal development
- sorting out emails
- made a YouTube channel
- a course on leadership
- heaps of life admin
Ok. She could be doing what she was put on earth to do, bear and raise children and provide domestic and other support to a husband, but instead is spending her best, most fertile years on busywork, and pretending to be a professional sportsman.
Tayla (like Jaydyn for boys, wrongly spelt names are a bad sign) is most famous for this photo, taken in 2019, and for which she apparently suffered a large amount of targeted online abuse for:
The photo is undignified and disgraceful of course but people should absolutely not harass her; it is technically illegal under the Crimes Act but more importantly just pointless, but there is still an imperative to state truth over ideology, to affirm that in a healthy society men and women have fundamentally different but complementary roles, and that the AFLW farce (known to some wags as the AWFL or the LAFL) and the general normalising of girls imitating boys will not be tolerated.
As ball sports go Australian Rules football is unusually brutal; young boys love it but pre-pubescent bodies are light and thin framed enough that they can’t cause much damage to each other, and most ten year olds aren’t going to throw their fists around and even if they did it wouldn’t amount to much. But into the late teens the numbers playing Aussie Rules start to rapidly thin as more and more boys decide it is too dangerous to keep going with, and by their twenties in the amateur leagues all you have left are the particularly tough types who can take the punishment and aren’t put off by the knowledge that they might have to cop a punch at some point.
Women are physically and mentally not built to play the game. In years gone by you would have the odd tomboy girl who the junior leagues would allow to slot into a team of boys; but once puberty hit safety concerns took over and she would cease playing. Apart from the general brutality the very fluid and chaotic, unstructured way that the game is played results in an awful lot of serious sometimes life altering injuries, above all multiple concussions, and knee injuries that require joint reconstruction. AFLW players are nine times more likely to suffer anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and suffer double the number of concussions than their male counterparts, all despite the fact that AFLW games are somewhat shorter in duration than men’s, and their season is (mercifully) very much shorter.
No self respecting father (assuming one is present) should allow his daughter to play football, and if our rotting civilisation and culture has any hope of revival it is going to be because men stood up and took responsibility for their women again.
