Should girls play boys sports
By Bianca Rodriguez
Imagine if it were you. Your a girl playing on a boys football team. You finally get the chance, and your running with the ball locked tight in your arms. You glance behind to see a herd of much bigger boys chasing behind you, coming your way. Next thing you know it, your in the emergency room trying to remember what had happened and why you are in there. So what do you think? Was it really worth it?
People argue that young girls playing on males sports teams is a good idea to make them feel empowered or just because there are no other available teams. This might seem like a good idea until parents and coaches etc. understand the dangers. Furthermore, playing on another gendered team just puts these girls more at risk of physical harm, teasing and no equality.
So what's your opinion? Do you still think girls should put them selves at risk by playing on a males team? If we do not take charge of this situation future problems could erupt. More females could get injured, teased and not get the proper playing time etc. Females should not play on males sports teams.
