Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.

This is for my fucking dad, when every time I tell him of some womans athletic accomplishment he finds it fit to interject how women could never compete with men because of their “lack” of upper body strength
Women CAN compete with men, in the exact same types of trials. Women have been discouraged from developing the muscles and strength to compete since forever, so maybe it may not be as common, but with dedication and training women will always be able to do the same tasks men can
I love hearing the announcers’ shocked voices when she accomplishes each trial.
I’ve watched this at least a hundred times.
if you ever think about sending me an ask and decide not to cause “oh she doesn’t care” or “oh I don’t want to bother her” literally I’m the loneliest piece of shit you can find and would still love you if you sent me the word nuzzle over and over again
