As the weather starts to warm up, and people go out into the world….Iron Girl is coming.

What is Iron Girl?

Iron Girl is an event that is hold all over the states, and possibly throughout the world.  Depending ont he location, it is either a triathlon or a foot race.

The goal of Iron Girl is to:

Empower Women Toward a Healthy Lifestyle!

This is great!  I love the idea. I love the concept….

BUT…..

Lets start from the beginning (a very good place to start):

From the post: Woman…not girl

The name – Iron Girl.

I’ve said this on this blog before and I will say it till it ends!  A girl is a female human who is not an adult. This would be a person who has not reached their 18th birthday.

As the ladies of the world have told me it goes something like this:

0-13 – Girl

13 – 17 – Young lady (as soon as you become a mom..you’re a woman.)

18 + – woman

Making people feel like a child, and using words that depict them as children, has been a favorite way to demean and belittle people and show everyone that this group is below the normal “adult” parts of society.

This was used in Nazi germany to everyone not blue eyes and white skinned – They were called children (regardless of their age).

Thiswas done during the Jim crow era – All black men were “boy” and “boys”.

There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of examples of this throughout world history……read more

Second…

Iron girl is a take off of the Iron man. The Iron Man is a triathalon that consist of  a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bike and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run, raced in that order and without a break. Most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race.

If you’re going to use the same words and ideas, you should use the same events or close to it.

Instead, they have decided to make it crazy different and simple…..not only are the triathalons not like this, but they are nonexistent in some areas.

In Clearwater, it’s only a 1/2 marathon.

This furthers the atrocity of showing women as below men.

So, for all the good….the advertisement and the way it is going…..furthers the inequality and thereby the destruction of the female world.

Stand up ladies….do the Iron girl and then do the Iron Man to show everyone that the only difference is the fact that women can populate the world. And that is pretty big plus!

opt 4 equality.

opt 4 gender equality.

opt 4 women to be called women.

opt 4 women to NOT be called girls.

Opt 4 empowering women!
