(Bustle)   Female athletes suffer more concussions than male athletes, and their brains take longer to recover. So why do we think CTE, or post-concussion brain damage, is just for the NFL?   (bustle.com) divider line 4

itcamefromschenectady: Benevolent Misanthrope: itcamefromschenectady: Benevolent Misanthrope: To date, only 33 dead ex-NFL players have been diagnosed with CTE, along with a small handful from other sports. But according to [this] list, not a single one of those diagnosed with CTE was a female athlete, and there's little evidence that anybody's looking for them.

Well, duh.  When it comes to medical research, men are always treated as more important, unless there's a huge campaign for years, like with breast cancer.

You're reading an article that says male athletes have fewer concussions, linking to a source that says male athletes have more concussions. And that's evidence nobody cares about women's health?

You're commenting on a statement from that same article saying that no one is looking for signs of CTE in female athletes, but only in male athletes, and taking it as a sign that medical research is as interested in women's health as men's?

No, I'm not, and it doesn't say that anyway.


Wow.  Are you a Republican or something?  I've rarely seen anyone who could contradict something in the exact same post so brazenly and expect no one to notice.
