17. Well...

that and the complete favoritism shown to athletics around the country. I used to work at a private school, and let me tell you, if you were a male and not interested in any athletics, you had pretty much nothing to do outside of class. The females had more to do other than athletics, they even had more choices when it came to doing something athletic. The end result is that you have basically two choices: try to be an athlete, or be a second class student. Anyone who has been in the halls of a school knows that the students, and even the faculty, are preferential to the jocks. I mean, they bring 'glory' to their school, they 'represent' the 'best of our student body' (what a crock! When I was in school, the jocks were the most evil children I had ever seen. They got away with 'murder' as well thanks to their preferential status). The fact that there are hundreds of scholarships for sciences, and thousands of scholarships for sports... well you figure it out. Trans kids have enough trouble in life without being forced to maintain such a status quo thanks to this jocular attitude. Now, once we stop really really really praising brawn over brains, all of this might be addressed with more reason, but until than happens... well, we end up with Trump, we end up with McConnell, we end up a bunch of BGFJs (Big Dumb Frat Jocks) running the show (regardless of their gender identity). Hell, we end up with Corvid, thanks to a bunch of preening, d**k waving 'tough guys' who think they can personally fight it, and then act like only the 'weak' will get it anyway.
