I quote from Brian Sutton Smith,The Ambiguity of Play:
Huizinga's thesis is also a particularly agonistic and machismo view of play history. His definition of play primarily as contest reflect the widespread male rhetoric that favors the exaltation of combative power instead of speaking comprehensively about play itself.

A thought for the future: A Women's History of Play.
