My boyfriend brought up point that for boys, there is the MLB. For girls, there is nothing beyond college. Perhaps, for that reason, parents throw more behind the boys. He may have a good point but it’s shit. My daughter may not have the potential to earn a 9 figure MLB salary but her high school team could get her a scholarship to a college where she can get a degree and do something amazing for the world. More importantly, these girls’ self worth is at play. I am sorry your daughter was treated like a second class citizen.
