    This is one time when adhering to the letter of the law is just stupid. Girls shouldn't have to compete with boys in this case. As someone else said, have boys from a couple of schools combine to make up a team so they can at least participate. We shouldn't be denying girls the chance to compete who would otherwise have been on the girls team.

    As far as I know, this has never been held to require them to compete together though, only that they have the same facilities, etc. Basically it comes down to having to spend as much on girls as boys. (Separate but equal, in other words. Some of you will have heard that term before).

    yes, you did make a threat. the fact that you don't have the guts to make it openly and therefore implied it doesn't make it any less of a threat.

    "But...but...but...this is different!", that's why we can't allow this to happen. It's all about political correctness and there's no way that males can been perceived to be dominate over females. Now, if they were smart, they woud have recruited some black boys and that would shut everyone's pie hole, is a New York second--pun intended.

    Everyone knows blacks can't swim, even the boys.

    If the school does not offer a equal sport, specifically for the other gender, then you must allow both sexes to compete in the same sport, or cancel the sport. That's the way Title IX has always been enforced.

    with this I agree. If there were girls who did not make the team because there was a limit to the number of swimmers and these boys took spots on the roster that would've gone to girls then the boys should have been told "sorry". but if everyone who tried out made the squad they should just STFU and let them swim. This is one of those cases where the unintended consequences come back to bite people in the ass. they pass these kinds of laws to keep girls from being "discriminated" against and they never consider the possibility that some day a boy is going to use the same law against them.

    I'd rather you just stop trolling and actually post something that is on topic

    Define being, "beaten by a girl".

    Seriously, though, it appears that the girls are getting their butts kicked by the boys and suddenly the hand wringers don't dig that. Must be someone that's afraid of being beaten by a man.
