    I would willingly have my ass kicked by her repeatedly in such an event.

    And brag about it til the day I die instead of bragging about that one time she high fived me while I was wearing daisy dukes drinking shitty beer by my shitty astro van one summer afternoon.

    Killington has been the best attended women’s (it’s sexist that FIS still calls it “ladies”) slalom event.

    Shiffrin is the most dominate skier on the FIS circuit.

    There is one race in the USA and one other in Canada; only one of which is SL.

    There are four separate events in Austria this year.

    Will FIS realize this watershed moment in their sport, and schedule a few more races in upcoming years, or will FIS remain Euro, namely Austrian, dominated?

    It will remain Euro.

    Most US resorts capable of holding events, only want them early season.

    They don't. FIS officially changed the nomenclature this past summer.

    Not trying to derail this thing, but how the hell is calling a woman a lady sexist or offensive in any way? Do you get offended by being called a gentleman?

    I don’t think this will derail because ultimately Shiffrin is on her way to becoming the greatest ski racer of all time and she will deserve the status of GOAT without qualification, so I will try to answer.

    There are two issues with the previous nomenclature. First, the discrepancy between labels “Men’s” and “Ladies’.” This places women in the pejorative.

    Second, the history of the sport that denied women from entry for years because “ski racing was not properly feminine,” and when they are allowed to start competing, women are required to race as “ladies” to maintain said “femininity”

    Not trying to derail this thing, but you can you explain the Charles Barkley reference. that sounds like there's a fun story behind it somewhere.

    A fan was harassing Chuck in a bar so he tossed him through a window. Right in front of cops if I recall.

    I'll also point out that there was a significant amount of support from women competing; the proposal was sponsored by both the gender equity working group and the athletes' group. All other concerns aside, if a group of people says "we'd really rather prefer you use this synonymous term that lacks the negative connotations of the term you're using", using the term preferred by the people to whom it refers seems like the right thing to do.

    She could challenge enemy leadership to a ski off. Or a Chinese downhill.

    FYI, the pull-up comment was a joking (I think) reference to a previous discussion a year or two back. Someone else can provide a link to the thread, I’m too lazy.
