The story started out well – they reported how the ratio is now 60% male, 40% female, while only a few years ago it was 90% male. Great news!
Then it all went downhill.
They were interviewing a grade 7 boy, and asked him if they (the boys) were intimated by the girls. He said, “Well no, because they’re in a different division”.
A different division?
Why the hell do they have a different division for girls and boys? It’s chess, people! It’s not like they’re wrestling or something! Seriously?
The reporter then interviewed the girl who has won 5 years in a row, asking “Do you think you can beat the boys?” Thankfully, she knows what’s up, and said of course she could!
If only they would let her!
