Foray Into Public Intellectualism

On June 6, 2014, Emma Span published an op-ed in the New York Times titled, “Is Softball Sexist?” In this piece, Span asserts that softball is a distinctly different sport than baseball and that there is no inherent need for girls to be pushed out of baseball and into softball. However, she warns that there is still attempts to undermine softball, opening it up to boys and men, though Title IX guards against this.

My comment of this piece was selected as a “Times Pick” and it garnered an impressive 69 recommendations from other readers (as of June 10, 2014). The text of my comment is attached below:
