So, I was in the car today and saw someone with the license plate “X0DUS3 5”, so I thought it was like Exodus 3:5 and I looked it up, and do you know what it said?
"Do not come any closer"
"text me when you get home so i know you’re safe" kinda people are the people i wanna be around

The male competitors are in awe the whole time, and even the commentators learned to stop saying, “I don’t think she can do this.”
No, but I think it’s worth mentioning that the commentators never said they didn’t think she could do it. There were some points where they say ‘I don’t know if she’ll be able to reach with her height’ but it was NEVER about her gender. Ever. Except for when they were quite literally screaming and cheering for her when she made history. Not one person on that show has been anything but supportive of her and happy that she’s bringing gender diversity to the challenge. The men that she beat were rooting for her.
It wasn’t like the commentators had to “learn” to stop saying she couldn’t do it. They never treated her any different than the male competitors and never said anything negative about her being a woman. Her stature put her at a disadvantage and they did mention that, yeah. But they do that with any competitor who has a disadvantage due to height/weight.
