Several others have picked up this thread similarly, so obviously this should
have been made more clear. As editor of this piece I'll take responsibility
I believe Jordan's point was to contrast our societal perceptions with the
reality of this story, not to malign older people. At 49 I'm not young enough
to be this woman's son but as I've gotten older I hope I have become more
respectful of others, more aware of how my actions may impact them. Add this
to our perception of women of that age tending to nurture rather than destroy
and we have a story that turns stereotypes inside out. The older woman taking
actions to injure those who participate in a sport whose participants are
skewed heavily toward the young male demographic; the very group that is
blamed for much of the recklessness and bad behaviour in our world.
