Toe Discrimination!!

Do you know what kind of message this sends?? It says to me -- and all the other boys and girls with stuck-together toes -- that we can never be Japanese baseball players! And it makes me very sad, that this is the way of the world, that so little progress has been made.
Separate is not, and never has been, equal.

Yet another reason to dislike the Red Sox. Go O's!

Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, the captain of the team and the player most likely to embrace equality and achievement through collective effort, said in the original NYT piece that he has never worn five-toed socks.

“I don’t know why,” Varitek said with a shrug. “I just don’t like the toes separated.”

So there are still members of the clubhouse attempting to root out discrimination, one foot at a time.
