Well it looks to me watching both my son and my daughter do poorly in organized sports that whatever natural ability was possible to acquire from my husband rather than me in this area my kids sadly did not acquire. I was always terrible, last pick and was lucky to have an athletic friend or I would have been shunned altogether. It was not fun. It was actually more fun when I did not join and ruin the team’s possiblities. Maybe with the sports activities being more organized, rather than just whoever was there points out the inequality more. It does seem like the boys do seem to be better than the girls as a general statement, although plenty of the girls get good hits, make decent catches and fine throws, more boys do those things in a more exceptional way.
