…So this girl is kicked off the football team because she’s a girl.
The reason is that the boys will have “impure thoughts”, so how is that her problem? People have “impure thoughts” all the time. It’s seems that only the religious people fail to realize that this is nature. Kicking her off the team won’t stop these “impure thoughts” because they’re teenage boys. Fantasizing about sex is sort of their thing. They’re entering their sexual peak after all. Give me a break.
If they didn’t want girls on the football team then why make it bi-gender in the first place? Why not make two different teams if they had such an issue with it? Did they expect only ugly girls would play and the boys wouldn’t care about them? Sorry, she’s pretty, get over it. Worried about someone grabbing her boobies? It’s a contact sport and her choice. She knows what she’s getting into. I seriously doubt the boys wouldn’t want to tackle her. At least not after they get over their initial reservation.
I don’t get it, it seriously seems like every time women show any sort of physical prowess people try to stamp them out. Oh women can’t be warriors; oh women can’t work; oh women can’t go to college; oh women can’t do bi-gender sports. It’s THEIR hang up. Not ours. If God was so adverse to women playing sports, fighting or whatever else he doesn’t want us to do then he wouldn’t make us physically able to do so. Right off the bat we may appear to be the physically weaker sex but we’ve proven that with dedication we can hold our own. Some even surpass their male counterparts.
I seriously doubt he “prayed on it” like he said. Perhaps it was the CEO of that private Christian school and the coach that was having impure thoughts about her. The shitty thing with private schools is that they basically get to set their own laws.
If people want to push us then we’ll push back. Harder. It works that way with ANY group of people. You push their gender, religion, race or whatever and they’ll push back because it’s important.
Should this be made a big deal and isn’t an issue just for feminists? Yes. It’s adverse behavior and like any sort of adverse behavior it needs to be stamped out and that can only happen if it’s brought to people’s attention.
Judge her on her ability not on her sex.
LET HER PLAY.
