SEPARATION- WHY IT HAPPENS
THE VIDEO BELOW SHOWS WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF A GIRL JOINS A BOYS FOOTBALL TEAM....
-My Interview With Ava Arends-
Q: How do you feel about students being discriminated in sports based on gender?
Q: Do you think we can change gender discrimination? If so, how?
How can girls and boys collaborate to make a winning team?
School sports are games most teens like to play. Especially middle school and high school teens. Sports are distractions from the homework and pressure of school, and some teams refuse to have people on their team just because of their gender. I think all students shall play whatever sport they want no matter shape, size, color, or gender. The only exception would be if their grades were dropping.
In most schools, the guys play the rough and tough sports, like football, and the girls either play volleyball, perform cheerleading, or don’t play a sport at all. Some of those scenarios are sensible student choices. Others are from cruel, heartbreaking discrimination by strict coaches or bullies.
People should think of Sam Gordon, the nine-year-old girl who amazingly crushed boys in football. She didn’t need tricks to beat them, for she had pure skill. This shows girls can be just as tough as guys. But that doesn’t mean boys aren’t as good at playing sports as girls. They may be different, but both genders have skills. When they work as a team, they combine strength and speed to be sure to win. Also, exercise improves learning and memory, which are needed for school. Sports relieve pressure that students face in school with homework. They also improve teamwork and leadership skills. If girls had the ability to play sports, they might do better in school.
I know some people are critics, and they always find something wrong with different situations. Those people probably would predict that girls are horribly weak, or not hardworking. But if girls were weak, wouldn’t they have already given in to not playing? That goes for being hardworking, too. Also, little Samantha Gordon showed many people that girls don’t always give in easily.
Although people are constantly trying to prove people that girls are not physically strong enough to play sports, girls are constantly firing back. They try as hard as they can to show anyone who doubts them that they can do whatever they want. Eventually, people will believe in them, and girls will be allowed to play with the boys if they choose to. This proves that when you have the motive to do something, anything is possible, no matter who you are.
