I feel like some of the examples on Bested At Bowling
could be moved to I Was Beaten by a Girl
, and then Bested At Bowling
needs to be rethought (maybe sent back to YKTTW
). I feel like there's a distinction.
Bested At Bowling
seems like a stock plot usually involving an aesop about a sexist or simply arrogant character playing in some sort of sport (often bowling because of Bowling For Ratings
) and freaking out about being Beaten By A Girl
or someone else they underestimated for shallow reasons. They don't always learn their lesson, but the point is about them being prejudiced and ultimately getting humbled.
As for the other topics, I also agree that Beaten By A Girl
should be the main name while I Was Beaten by a Girl
should get moved to the redirect.
Bowling For Ratings
does seem like it could be a thing to me, if it is a go-to sport because ease of production and connotation, but the examples need to make it clear that's why they're listed. The ones with no explanation aren't very useful.
