    And boys who have been kicked off girls teams under similar circumstances?

    If she gets hurt then what? You're too rash to judge and say that this is about sexism.
    The overall religious topic doesn't matter so much because we just debated that in another thread and it's really all the same stuff we've said recently. Nothing's changed. My view stands unwavering.

    But "If she gets hurt? . . . "

    Well my GOD imagine a FOOTBALL player getting HURT!

    They ALL risk getting hurt - she is no different than everyone else . . . on that we're all equal: we can all break legs and bleed out. She has just as much risk as they do. What was that supposed to be a point for: did you think I would go "Oh my - yes - we can't risk the little poor girl getting hurt . . . but letting the boys play football is fine?"

    You really thought I'd be like that, didn't you?

    Think again - My daughter's the only child we have still in karate. Obviously I don't cleave to those archaic notions of gender frailty and inability.

    I am not the mother to speak that dribble to and expect it to sway my hover mother heart

    If you're worried about KIDS getting hurt playing SPORTS then don't let them play! It's a risk that goes along with everyone who engages in physical activity against another. My kids have had their share of 'group-game' injuries - everything from twisted ankles to gaping wounds, concussions and all else.

    I'm not about to turn my kids into little skittish psychos by telling them "No! you might get hurt! You can't do anything!"

    Which does not dictate anything regarding only men being priests.

    The stated reason women were not ordained throughout the centuries was that they were inferior (Aquinas).

    That reason has ceased to exist.

    If you look back you'll see I agree with you - ALL school sports should be coed IMO. School sports should exist only to educate (body mechanics, movement training, all the life lessons that go with team participation, etc.).

    But making this about the church when so much of our public school system does the same thing is an odd focus and just comes off as being knee-jerk anti-religion.

    Nothing to see here folks, just more of the CC showing it's true sexist colors.
    Right, and you don't think it has anything to do with the fact that the males in her age group are about to hit puberty and will shortly grow to be completely out of her ability to compete against in terms of size and strength?

    No? Just sexism? Gotcha...

    Unless the girl's a veritable ogre, the odds are that she's going to get murdered going up against Junior High or High School level males on the football field.
