Knockout Game Isn’t Just a Sport for Guys

It looks like another glass ceiling has finally been broken by a fine member of the Florida Sisterhood.

According to a Lee County Sherriff’s press release, 15-year-old Traveshia Blanks was arrested on Tuesday following an attack in which she sneaked up behind a 73-year-old man and kicked him in the rear end, sending him face down on the ground. The victim was gardening at the time of the attack and was unaware that the teen was behind him.

This fine act of defiance against the Patriarchy might never have been discovered had Traveshia’s enterprising friends not thought to videotape that attack and the one she carried out the same day. Courage often means sacrifice, though, and because of this pioneering act of feminism Traveshia Blanks will spend 21 days behind bars.
