I agree that it would be nice to see a woman official at the dome. BUT, with that said, unless they do what they've done in just about every other aspect of America, until a lady becomes better than most men at officiating, it won't happen. There are actually quite a few female officials across the state, but to this date, none of them are better than all of the men in their associations. Since the WIAA expects each association to send the best officials they have, the ladies will be left behind until they get better then all the others. Unless of course, you want to start sending ladies "just because they are ladies". And in this day of political correctness and equal opportunity, you might just see that. A lady won't have to be better than those who stay home; just be a lady. And soon we'll have an equal number of male and female officials on the floor. It won't matter how good they are, just the gender. Oh, and don't forget we will have to have those who don't know what their gender is. Or those who want to change their gender. Or those who don't believe in gender. OH, I just love political correct liberals.|
