Where did fastpitch softball start?

The problem is that fastpitch softball is a derivative of slowpitch softball. Slowpitch has a place; however, the entire reason for throwing underarm was to make it a more leisurely game. Someone then decided to alllow girls to hurl it underarm at high speeds. It is a fundamentally flawed sport due to the imbalance between pitcher and batter. There is really no reason for it to exist other than the sexism that has kept girls from playing baseball.
