Lady Whats? A pet peeve I had forgotten

People watching on the train is always entertaining.  On my morning commute it is people going to work and college.

One such college student was rocking her athletic shorts from high school.   Where, apparently, she was a Lady Pioneer.  I'm pretty sure that when I was playing Oregon Trail there was no distinction between pioneers and Lady pioneers.   Everyone had equal opportunity to get a snakebite or die of Cholera.

I'm not sure where the trend of "feminizing" sports teams started.  All I know is that it needs to stop.

Lady Knights?   Might as well call them the Damsels in Distress.

Lions?   The lioness soccer team will go all pride rock on your ass.

And then there's the -ette.   I don't care if you buy a small table for your dinette, but don't  you dare turn the girls basketball team into the Soaring Eaglettes.

As a kid you are on the girls team. In college you play women's _________ (sport of choice).   

No young woman deserves to be a Lady Tigerette.
