Although many people are biased to whether girls should be able to play sports with boys, there are many decisive reasons to make this official. This is a topic that not many people can agree with.
Some schools do not offer girls sports teams. This leads to girls not being able to play a sport at all. Take
I fell that they won’t let boys play volleyball because they could look at the girls inappropriately but if they wrestle then the boys could touch girls inappropriately and that’s even worse and last of all boys could not even be on the same team
In the world of sports it started off that girls could never play sports and then in 1972 a public law called Title IX came to existence which allowed girls to play sports but not with boys. Today the question is asked should girls play on boys’ sports teams? One would think that girls should not play with boys on a sports team because boys are just naturally taller and stronger than women and they would dominate the girls in a fully contact sport. Another may think that if a girl is truly capable to play on an all boys’ sports team, then she should not be denied the opportunity to try out for an all boys’ team. Some other people may believe that sports at younger ages should remain co-ed because boys and girls body types are still
I know a sweet little boy that loved to do gymnastics. He was made fun of by his classmates. He was bullied for doing gymnastics because his classmates thought that it was a girls sport. Who is to judge what is a boy or girls sport? It’s the same situation for girls and boys. People think that it’s unnatural for a girl to play a boys sport and vice versa. Women's Sports Foundation.org says that “prior to 1970, if a women wanted to pursue a professional degree in college, chances were she wouldn’t be admitted to a law school or medical school program because she was a woman,” I don’t care who you are, that is just madness. That is just like today with girls wanting to play a boys sport, no I am wrong that is just like today with girls wanting to play a sport. Who says that football and wrestling are boy sports? There are many girls in this world that want to play football, why there are some that do! I think that is awesome! Then there are those girls that want to but can’t because like our school, the school board of education doesn’t allow it. The school thinks that girls shouldn't be allowed to play on the same team as boys. I think that it is absurd that my friends that want to play football can’t. They can be cheerleaders, which I guess is a girls sport. There are other schools that have boy cheerleaders. Why doesn’t our school? I tell you why we don’t it’s because everyone thinks that it is a girls
The setting up of co-ed, or mixed gender, teams in schools has been highly debated by many students, parents, and school staff. Some argue than not allowing girls and boys to play on the same team promotes gender stereotypes among kids, while others claim that because of differences in body size and strength, boys and girls should not be on the same team. Co-Ed teams are in place across the nation with many claiming that they “promote a healthy environment where boys and girls are equal”, but the reality is that the forming of co-ed teams in some sports like football or basketball is not a good idea because boys won’t be able to get as physical with girls as they would with boys, nor would they be able to play by the same rules.
The first reason is playing coed sports would have many advantages, one of them is that it increases the way that they distinguish themselves individually. Boys and girls like to play on the same teams because it gives them freedom to be with the opposite gender. Guys and girls hang out together outside of sports and teams, why not let them play a sport together. Statistics have shown that having coed sports reduces depression in girls and if in coed sports at an early age boys learn to respect girls sooner. This is one on of the few but very important reasons.
There has always been a stigma between boys and girls, between their love of the ball game. have you ever seen a professional baseball player try to hit off an Olympian softball pitcher it's crazy how similar the sport is, but crazy different the pitching styles are.
Official athletic teams are developed in Junior High School, around the same time that feelings for the opposite gender arise. My point is that if two separate genders, male and female, are placed within the same team, feelings or affection for the opposite gender will become an obstacle for physical and athletic performance. Due to lack of focus, I believe that this will result in numerous losses.
Sports should not be co-ed, due to the differences in the capability levels of athleticism between females and males. Sports are based off of age and skill, but the female and male genders each have major differences in athleticism. Sports such as football include factors such as size, strength and quickness. The male and female bodies are developed differently creating an unfair advantage to the men. Men are born stronger than women due to their production of testosterone which helps build muscle. Women do produce testosterone, but very little of it making the men naturally stronger. Men just happen to have denser and stronger bones and ligaments than women, causing a higher risk of injury. It is much harder if men and women play on the
All high schools should have coed sports because it allows everyone to participate whether it is a girls or boys sport and it doesn't discriminate a boy or girls ability to play a sport classified as a certain gender. Eli is a boy who wants to participate in volleyball and goes to tryouts. When he arrives he sees that there is only girls here and he is the only boy, when the coach sees him she asks if he is in the right place and wasn't looking for basketball. He tells her no and leaves. Allison is a girl who is also black girl and wants to participate in football and shows up to tryouts. She arrives and all the guys there start to laugh and make fun of her. The coach lets her tryout but as she is trying out he doesn't think her skill set is enough to let her continue so she leaves. Everyone should be able to tryout for a sport whether you are a girl or boy and no matter the race or your ability you should be able to be apart of the sport.
Envision being a parent and having your daughter inquire why she cannot play sports like her brother could, attempt clarifying that to your baby girl. Thankfully, because of the Title IX law, there is no need for such action. Through the Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education, this law was established and initiated, creating a lead way to the passing of the Federal Educational Amendments of 1972 which implemented that, fighting for equality in the midst of our sporting history, between man and woman, would be no longer necessary. This is Title IX, a law which states that no human being shall, on the bases of sexual orientation, be denied of any athletic participation, no matter the sex, gender, or color. This law has given
