    Maybe everything should be co-ed and then we can drive participation on pure competition of performance.
    And then no girls would ever win **** when it comes to anything. Yeah - that's a solution.
    Sports use to be only acceptable for boys - girls use to be discouraged and negated for wanting to participate in any of it. Why you want to reverse any sort of social acceptance and that move forward in society is beyond me but that's what will happen.

    I support balanced requirements in the military because it's a heavy duty career that relies on strengths and equality - not imbalance.

    But when it comes to sports I don't agree - there are physical differences and sometimes that means they have the advantage - this is one such situation.

    Anyway - this is old, I'm just restating everything I've said on it - my view still stands.

    I voted it depends on the sport and it does. If each team has the same proportion of sexes then I think it would be ok, but this is not likely to be the case, so it depends.

    There are a few. I was a member of SCA or The society for creative anachronism SCA, Inc. | Arts of Combat and Chivalry I was in the Midrealm. Participated in medieval army combat as well every year during the Pensic war when I was younger. Others exist, it is no different the Civil War or WWII reenactments.

    Nothing underground about it. The Society for Creative Anachronism is a 35000+ member medieval recreation society with members in the US, Canada and more than a dozen other countries around the world. Combat is not our only interest but our combat system is what we are most well known for.

    Check out SCA Combat on YouTube and you'll get an idea of what we do.
