Emotion in public
Did Bethany Ojalvo also find it not “amusing” when the Pacifics brought in a woman pitcher recently [Hero & Zero, Aug. 12]? That might have been a first. Might kids take that message even more seriously than a T-shirt slogan? What about the two women who just passed the Army Rangers training–first ever? Would she think them heroic for crying in public? How would they respond to her?
Showing emotion in public does not make one a hero: It’s just what people do.
A Zero is trying to paste one’s biases on the “model for our next generation of men”–or women, or anybody else.
