    Anyway
    Actually they do have a cup of sorts for girls.

    I get "beaten" (and blown) by girls on a regular basis...nothing to be afraid of.

Personally, I think those girls deserve whatever abuse they get in doing so, but that's a separate issue. On the other hand, the idea that a GUY would even WANT to compete on a woman's team is utterly disgusting to me. Here in the Northeast there are YMCA swimming teams, and plenty of other opportunities (including the idea of merging schools to get enough boys for a team) for these boys to compete if they so desire. They do not need to debase themselves and disrupt the whole system like this.

    Hmmm, as a boy you would be disgusted around girls in swimsuits? I hadn't figured you leaned that way.

    It depends if there is possibly parity or - for a team - and equal blend on both sides.

    I can't begin to tell how many times big, tough, highly trained cops including trainer cops and even with notable military backgrounds including such as Army Ranger and even with Martial Arts Training have been surprised in being bested by my petite little wife on just about anything physical and certain physical skills related.

    It depends on what the competition is for sports - and for any team activity to make parity (both ways) just requires an equal blending on both teams.
