Hockey is hockey. FIghts happen. Why should womens’ hockey be any different from mens?

Haha, started when one woman asked “does my bum look big in this outfit?”

@elbanditoroso Because testosterone makes people aggressive, and men produce more of it naturally? Read some accounts of women’s experience of being given testosterone… there is a funny radio account on This American Life IIRC.

@Zaku – women can be aggressive without testosterone. In fact there’s no mention of testosterone in the film clip.

I would say that hockey players – male or female – have a certain -joi de vivre

Have you ever watched the Canadian women and the American women play? Or fight?

@elbanditoroso Of course, I know women can be aggressive without testosterone. Yes both sexes can get mad and hit each other with hockey sticks, no doubt.

You were the one who mentioned men’s hockey, asking why women’s should be any different from men’s hockey, which is the question I was offering an answer to.
