It's not garbage, it's the rule.That's garbage.
You are saying that a girl has to run full speed at a catcher hoping they get out of the way at the last moment. All of our girls won't truck a catcher and do slow because they don't want to make contact. This is the same logic that causes the no interference without contact that only encourages injuries.

When the runner slows down due to the position of the defensive player without the ball, that is the textbook definition of obstruction.
