This is an amazing film about gender and poverty.

As I write this, a current You-Tube sensation is Samantha Gordon, a nine-year-old American football player. All the videos of her are exceptionally violent, because American football is a violent sport.

Putting nine-year-old girls into a boxing ring is no more brutal or backward than putting little Samantha in at running back. And yes, these girls carry the financial burden of their families, as does every nine-year-old planting rice in Asia. There are nine-year-olds carrying machine guns in Africa.

The families in America who exploit their children on "Dance Moms" or "Toddlers in Tiaras" are doing the exact same thing as the parents of the "Buffalo Girls." So if you watch this film and your reaction is "I'm glad I live in America," you're having the wrong reaction.

Its an eye opener, entertaining but kinda of sad for the girls. Seems like they are carrying the financial burden of their families dreams.
