As i was pacing a few of the racers i heard a one of them, he sounded really upset. Being the curious girl i am i slowed down. He was almost at tears because another boy on the team said he skied like a girl. I don't think he realized that the 1st and 3rd place winners in the race were girls. He was being complimented but not to him. I just don't get why being called a girl is that bad. If someone says "Wow you run like a boy" or "Cool you ski like a boy" It isn't rude to say, but when you call someone a girl its bad.
Please next time you hear someone make someone feel bad about being called a girl, tell them that being a girl can be great.
