Makes sense...
A beautiful, attractive female isn’t desirable for her mind, and those with strong characters are seen as threatening, masculine and undesirable.

I’ve been lifting weights — semi-consistently — since I was about 13 years old, but I kept hearing that, as a female, weights were supposed to get me toned and give me muscle endurance. So lifting weights as a girl meant lift...

"Sports teach a girl about herself while also teaching her about life. It’s one of the biggest tools that can really set her up for a successful life long after her playing days are over.”

"A feminist is a man or a woman who says, 'Yes, there is a problem with gender as it exists today and we must fix it. We must do better.'"

"People who view femininity and masculinity as female- and male-specific traits (rather than more broadly as human traits), will often encourage “gender-appropriate” behaviors in other people. Sometimes this is done unconsciously or subtly (e.g., by simply expressing approval of gender-conforming behavior), and other times consciously and blatantly (e.g., by outright ridiculing or condemning people who are gender-nonconforming). This system has many negative ramifications, one of which is that it puts pressure on girls and women to express feminine traits but not masculine ones."
