Like the WNBA, or women in racing, or women's golf. The biggest women stars are probably those Williams sisters. Sharapova only got famous for beating one of the sisters.
But anyway, why don’t women’s sports get as much attention as men?

'Dear Mortal Head of State,
I came here today to explain the true and total consequences of your actions over the last several months. I'm guessing after today that would be unnecessary.
It's not every day that a human finds himself responsible for the death of a god and then on that very same day escapes facing another.
Surely fortune favors you, and the men I spared. Enjoy it.
But before you wash your hands of my father's blood, I would encourage you to reflect on what brought us to this point:
You sacrificed honor for expediency. You traded intent for quick action. You were wrong . . and we all suffered for it.
So do better now mortal man . . for if not I, then surely some god somewhere will someday find you wanting.
It would be a shame to wager your good fortune with folly.

The God of Fear.
Son of War. '

Let me start by saying I am most definately not sexist. However... Men are just better at most sports. A mens football game is faster paced and more skillfull. Men can swing a racquet harder in a tennis match.

Plus, it's mostly men who watch sports. :shrug:

Sad but true I'm afraid.

I was watching the Women's College World Series this past week... my hometown Arizona Wildcats made the finals but lost to UCLA. In Tucson, college softball is massive... I remember sitting around with friends watching the championship in 2007 when Arizona won.
It's amazing how much different it is than baseball. When you start paying attention to the sport, you really get to appreciate it for what it is rather than "it's not men."

nice question
but i guess we let them rule the world practically

we want them to let us go first, to open us doors, but i think we should not allow them to do that... we should tell them to treat us equally
and because of that, we havent the same attention we deserve in relation to everything... including sports

we keep been treated too carefully or too badly---

Women's MMA fights are usually very entertaining, but the talent pool isn't there yet, there are only a few good fighters out there. I also watch the US Women's National Team (soccer/football). That's about all I watch.
