    It's not like football, wrestling or soccer where the nature of gender is less of a factor.
    Football?????????????????? Girl, I don't know about you.

    Males and females swim together all across the country on competitive US swim teams. The girls think it is awesome.

    I have my limits on co-ed sports. If a female is good enough and strong enough to compete with males in baseball, football, soccer, whatever, that's fine with me. However, when it comes to men infiltrated female swimming teams, that's the limit. There's no way even a top-tier female swimmer can compete with males, any more than a top-tier female runner or pole jumper can compete with males. I also think having females wrestle males is a bad idea. Wrestling is so intimate that even males can have misunderstandings when certain... well... wrestling moves are used.

    Having males dominate female swim teams is just messed up.

    Im sure I am the minority on this and Im sure its because im older than most of you....but I really liked it when females were females and males males...and they didnt try to act and be like each other and somehow miraculously making them all equal with a wave of the hand.

    generally this happens where a school only has one sport-for example one golf team, one football team etc.

    when a school has a girls soccer team and a boys soccer team its idiotic for this to take place and certainly improper for a boy to say run on the girls track team just so he can win when he cannot against other boys.

    In some cases, I can see why a girl wants to be on the only wrestling team a school offers though it puts boys in no win situations that may not be fair.

    and of course some coaches are idiots-for example, making a girl (there was no softball team) wear a cup when playing baseball or a girl's volleyball team switching from soccer style shorts to bikini briefs after a boy (who was an all state volleyball player in California transferred to a school in ohio that did not offer boy's volleyball). In another case, a foreign exchange student, who came from a country where men's field hockey was popular, did where a kilt when he joined the girls team at his prep school in ohio

    Girls need protection too - I mean, it might seem freaking stupid. But they don't make female genetalia protection - if a cup is what you have than use a cup. It doesn't feel good getting clocked their for us, either.

    Anyway

    One of my daughters played soccer on an all female team and got a accidental kick in the crotch...she wound up in the emergency room for a few hours...I agree with you on that
