Remember that link someone posted a while ago to the article about why women shouldn't race? Here's another one:

http://www.racerchicks.com/bbs/Forum3/HTML/000050.html

I wish there was a way to get in touch with the guy who said that . . . and Mankind, if you read other posts in the Racerchicks forums, just likes to stir things up and thinks he's funny.

I guess if your "norks" get in the way, what are you gonna do?

That's terrible. Hell, even I'm offended by that. That old thread is good, for some reason I completely missed that one. There are a lot of good points in that thread, and that article, oh my gosh, I don't think I'm gonna go there. Even at 15, I've already decided that one of my criteria for a wife is that she has to be cool with the dirtbike thing. I don't date anybody that has a problem with it. I don't really mind if she rides, it would be nice, but as long as she supports me with my passion, it's all good. Anyways, back to the article, I think that aggresiveness is so not an issue. A woman can be aggressive just like a man can, and both men and women are non-aggressive. I have lady friends (I guess that's the best way to put it) that are just as competitive as I am, just not at the same things. Maybe I'm aggressive in football and she's aggressive in say volleyball, explain to me where there is a difference. Upper body strength is not an issue either. I've seen kids that are the same age as me, but that can't bench half what I can (which is quite a lot I might add, lol ;) ) and can ride just as much as me and faster. And also, how come a guy can develop this upper body strength yet a woman can't?

And if the "norks" getting in the way is really that big of a problem, can't you just do like the woman in "Shakespheare In Love" and just tape em down? I mean, everybody's got duct tape, and it does fix everything. :scream:

Norks...

Well now, this is interesting, i have no problem with Women Racing. I have a friend who happens to ride quite frequently and she's a girl. Also, upper body strength, not to sound rude or anything, But isnt "Nork" carrying kinda like training...Just a opinion...i guess. Why do some people have their minds stuck in reverse?

And for Women not being Aggressive Part...Has this Person seen Firecracker mad? :scream:

That's my Two cents...why i would be paying Two cents to say my mind confuses me though... :think:

Where do these people keep coming from? Is there some idiot society somewhere and these people keep escaping? I shouldn't have re-read the old thread.....now I'm mad all over again! :p :p

Well obviously there are big differences between guys and girls. I take this standpoint. Let them in the cars, bikes, whatever and if they can make the grade, then let them race. This past weekend I saw at least two girls on TV drag racing bikes and they won. They undoubtedly MAKE the grade. I don't think anybody guys or girls should be allowed to drive anything they want and thats why all the F1 racers have worked their way up into the seat their in. I also know girls aren't asking to drive F1 cars just because they are girls, it is because they can be competetive.

I also think this was a funny comment on that page.

"if MEN had to deliver babies, the human race would have been over in Turn One..."

Funny

That has to be the funniest term I've heard for that part of the woman's anatomy in a long time!

"Norks" . . . I just can't stop giggling:p

But I must say, if any women wants to race, go for it! I have been whupped up on by some fast women (racers!) in my day, and it doesn't bother me a bit.

XRP wouldn't that be knorks in a knot? ;)

Just playin' ladies, I'm a norkman myself. (at least that what I THINK they're saying but it almost sounds like dork. Oh well I'll just have to clean my rose colored glasses.)
