I agree 100%

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. 

OK. But, please, let's keep race out of the discussion as it's not relevant.
