Given their insistence that the boys not play sports against girls, the Our Lady of Sorrows should not have been allowed to field an intermural baseball team in the first place.  And, they need to give serious thought to withdrawing all their sports teams from intermural play. Talkin’ from football to golf team –even the debate team! All should be barred from any league play.  There’s always the chance they’d play against a mixed-gender team and need to forfeit.  That’s disruptive and not fair to the other team.  The whole idea behind intermural sports is to play – not use it for a venue for flaunting one’s beliefs.


 


They also should recognize that the young lady benched herself –twice!- to respect their beliefs.  I’m sure that went against her beliefs.  Certainly that requires them to bend some as well.


 My 2 cents.


Irene.

Excellent points Irene

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

You have the right to not have the GOVERNMENT interfer with your freedom of speech. That's what the Constitution says.





Well, since the KKK isn't the GOVERNMENT, then...

He invoked the Constitution, not civil law. He did so in an attempt to say that someone cannot disagree with, and voice that opinion, when someone believes something differently. He was actually trying to stifle my freedom of speech.





So, the Bill of Rights does not supercede "civil law?" Now, you're really not making any sense. By that standard, my town council could forbid women from voting, or even going out of the house unescorted.


Nobody is trying to stifle your freedom of speech. I'm just calling you on your jaw-dropping B.S.

If that's what you want to believe. Thanks for sharing.

Normally, I am open minded enough to allow for co-rec sports.  But I watched something this past weekend that might make some people wonder whether co-rec sports are a good idea:


At the local Irish Festival there were games of co-rec adult Gaelic football and hurling. In both matches the female players either used an elbow or the caman against a male player and the referee did not impose a sanction.  In one instance a female player used a caman (the type of bat they use in hurling) twice in the direction of a male player's groin.  As we all know this can cause serious injury.  But again the referee did NOTHING!


Needless to say the male players who were attacked were not at all happy that this happened. I would suppose their wives felt the same way.


If you watch some co-rec high school wrestling videos in youtube you will again see referees employing double standards when officiating the matches.  All too often the girls gets the benefit of the doubt from the referee and leaves the boy at a competitive disadvantage.  I have seen several girls win matches in this unfair manner. Now, I am forced to question whether such matches should be allowed in high schools at all.


Let's be fair about things so that everyone can have fun.

I'm not surprised. 


In today's topsy-turvey world, if a woman is sexist against a man, that's OK. 


If a black is racist against a white, that's OK. 


Let's keep sports gender-separated. It's better that way.
