Default Cheer up, men

This has been a tough month for men, with all of the allegations of wrongdoing while in the presence of women and girls. While many of the stories are shocking, some are a bit more subtle but the ramifications could be just as huge. A memory of an embarrassing or traumatic moment a decade earlier could fester in the mind of a young lady, causing irreparable harm.

The point of this post isn't to lay all the blame on men. While we are an imperfect gender, it must be pointed out that often it is women who are guilty of destroying the dreams and aspirations of the generations of young ladies who look to them for guidance and strength. Take for instance Julia Ruth Stevens, the daughter of Babe Ruth. Her famous father has made it possible for Mrs. Stevens to travel the nation, throwing out first pitches while basking in the spotlight of ceremonies and applause. You would think this privilege would inspire her to present her best self, as she came to the realization that she was a role model for girls all over this great land. Well sadly, that isn't the case.

The following photos tell a story. It is a sad story that develops over the course of only 4 seconds. That is all it took for Julia Ruth Stevens to completely shatter the hopes and dreams of one innocent girl.

Julia takes the "mound" which has been adjusted to ten feet, six inches. While the distance is a full 50 feet shorter than regulation, the fans don’t appear to notice. For those who may notice, they seem not to care.

I am guessing the ball didn't make it to the plate?

A young girl in the crowd emerges from her seat, perhaps at the behest of her mother, to get a better view of the historic moment. She confidently rises. It is a moment of celebration, a moment of female pride.

The excited girl, filled with wonder and a sense of invincibility, stands at full attention to soak in the moment she hopes to share vicariously through Mrs. Stevens.

I've been on this thread for 10 minutes trying to figure where it's going...the women is a zillion years old. Surely your not going to denigrate her?!?!

The baseball leaves Julia's hand at an unusual trajectory but the young fan remains hopeful. This is Babe Ruth's daughter. It is basically The Sultan of Swat but in a strong, capable, feminine body. What could go wrong?

The ball weakly falls to the ground after traveling approximately 5'6".

As the ball slowly rolls the rest of the way into the catcher's glove, the girl, obviously a shell of her former self, stands powerlessly in front of her seat, trying to rationalize what she just witnessed. "Is it impressive for a person to throw a ball the distance of her own height? Perhaps it is similar to an individual who can bench press his or her own weight," she mutters to herself. No it isn't. And she knows this. She also knows her life will never be the same. She has to live out the rest of her days with the memory of a horror burned into her young brain… a memory she can never unsee.
