    Yeah, they always have....And If I remember correctly from when I played, you actually have to try out, and make the cut.

    And that's what I don't get about this. It should be obvious that while females mature faster, and are thus taller/bigger than boys when they are younger, eventually boys are going to outgrow them in physicality.

    Its as though the PC crowd wants to ignore biology. Maybe they just hate it....

    Two things you're forgetting - that's a general statement you made, and there are frequent exceptions. Not all football positions require the largest mass/most strength.

    I knew that was part of it, but I admit, Christian theological history was not previously my forte, though it is becoming more interesting to me the more I have been reading Monastical histories during the Middle Ages.

    No, but all positions are going to be influenced by physical characteristics directly impacted by the effects of sexual hormones, like testosterone. Hell, Even your blood cell count and endurance are directly influenced by testosterone.

    Agree. I don't have a problem with a female playing a sport, whether it be violent or not, that is dominated by males. However, when kids are young, there needs to be some common sense rules governing their safety. For football, the rules should be age and weight based, and that should be good enough.

    #1) This isn't about "some day the boys will be bigger and stronger and possibly hurt her". This is about right here and right now. While she's excelling at her position.

    #2) This isn't about boys are gonna start groping her someday.

    #3) This isn't about "what if she gets hurt - her parents will probably sue." (so damned stupid, like parents of a hurt boy wouldn't sue...)

    I do think the story regarding the boy who wanted to play field hockey on the girls team should have been allowed to play. Assuming he was good enough to make the team.

    Seems really sad, and idiotic, and completely sexist to say a boy that's not as good at football as this girl has more right to play than she does simply because he has a penis.

    But that's the way the CC does things at it's highest levels so I'm not shocked.

    Apparently everything was going along well until she insisted on wearing a burka during the next home game.

    I could have said the same thing about your gratuitous slag at Mary, but I chose to give it the kind of response it deserved.
