Just curious. I got used to my mum worring the sports I chose are too manly or dangerous or what. Kind of to be expected from one's parents. What I didn't expect was that I also heard something similar from a fellow MAist. Isn't crossfit too much for you? Questioning especially the weightlifting part, I'd say. Why would it be? I kind of figured some people think lifting heavy (or lifting at all) isn't for women, but I just can't wrap my head around why would they even think that when I thought about it. Everyone uses the weights they can, women usually lighter ones, right? So it isn't about injury. So... do people think women shouldn't work too hard because they would grow muscle? Or just because... I don't even know... women are weak and aren't suited to it? Which is kind of nonsense... I am just curious, really, what the reason may be. Is this opinion common? I suppose not around here, but in general... And why?
