There's a certain trend among some of the drag racing internet's so-called "know-it-alls" that I find to be kind of selfish and even somewhat stupid, some of the "know-it-alls" have a tendency to whine, complain and lash out over the fact that during drag racing TV coverage, the commentators tend to occasionally make the point that drag racing is the most "woman friendly" of all motorsports, especially when it comes to openly accepting women as serious participants and competitors. Well boo hoo! (sarcastic). Give me a break! Have you ever heard the expression "don't look a gift horse in the mouth"?-- It means not to be unappreciative of a valuable gift or handout-- And that's exactly what some of the internet "know-it-alls" are guilty of each and every single time they whine about TV commentators talking up the fact that drag racing's the most "woman friendly" of all motorsports. Ya see, drag racing, as a sport, in today's ultra competitive sports/entertainment marketplace, needs every inch and bit of marketing advantage it can possibly get. So in our current climate of widespread/mainstream feminist culture, it sure is a GOOD THING to let the planet know that drag racing has a long history of accepting women drivers, and that we continue to add more ladies to the cockpit with each and every passing season! Just because as a "know-it-all", you're aware that drag racing has a history of gal gearheads, that doesn't make it right for you to cop an attitude when TV commentators bother to tell a massive novice audience who aren't necessarily veteran "know-it-alls"... Us drag racing folks don't have the luxury to not mention or promote facts about our sport that might help it endure and survive in this current dog-eat-dog sports/entertainment marketplace! Get Real!... I know from my own experience as being a female drag racing journalist, that there's still bigotry against women out there that needs to be addressed. I once had a long sit down with Shirley Muldowney, and I can guarantee you that after all the bigot grief she's had to deal with over the decades, she'll never take the fact that drag racing has come a long way in accepting women for granted. So stop all the whining and complaining when a TV commentator plays up our "woman friendly" sport-- it may someday serve as the most important feature of drag racing to save it from extinction-- and that's NOT an exaggeration... Think about it... It's definitely high time for some of our ignorant slanted people to lose all their cockeyed "know-it-all" blowhard posturing that's internally infecting them and get with the program for drag racing's self preservation... Thanks...

 

Shirley Muldowney & yours truly. 2  ladies who will never take drag racing's acceptance of women for granted.
