Just a note:
It is my understanding that to be "Politically Correct" would be to NOT
differentiate between the genders, on the theory that to do so would imply
that they may not be, for whatever reason, equal.
Being in the employ of the (painfully correct) City of Austin, such
topics are all too frequently addressed.

First of all the post had nothing to do with being politically correct. its
is simply stating that they are wanting to try to get more ladies to fight
in both light and heavy. its is like saying youth fighters.
