Drew and Tyler chat with Gina Dalfonzo about her recent article “I, Ashley: We’re Still Imposing the Harding-Kerrigan Narrative on Young Female Skaters.” We discuss the double standard present in sports fandom with regard to how people tend to react to vocal female athletes compared to male athletes. We also discuss how we treat athletes and react to their failures and successes.
