Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

Another One Bites the Dust (Take 1): Boys and Girls Sports

Posted by dalekuehne on February 25, 2017

Mack Beggs wins gold at the Texas Girl Wrestling Championship. Born a girl, and undergoing testosterone treatment, Mack will become synonymous with the debate about the future of gendered sport in America.

The question won’t be whether boys can play on girls teams (or boys on girls teams) but whether we will even have boys or girls teams.

Another distinction bites the dust.

Steve walks warily down the street
The brim pulled way down low
And ain’t no sound but the sound of his feet
Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready hey, are you ready for this
Are you standing on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat, yeah, yeah, yeah, sing it

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, hey
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I’m gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Another One Bites the Dust by Queen from The Game (1980)

  1. Had to happen soon. People speak as if there is going to be some huge conflict or day of reckoning when it hits women’s soccer or basketball or other popular sport. Nah. This battle is politically over, and you see the result. There will be grumbling and shouting, but this is done. Girl’s sports in highschool will be basically unaffected, but on national, collegiate, and championship levels, boys and teams with boys will increasingly capture a disproportionate share of women’s prizes.
