    what are your views on co-ed sports? should they be supported, looked down upon? why can or why can't boys and girls play on the same team?

    Sports is one of the few fields without affirmative action. The best basketball players play basketball. The best football players play football. That's the way it works.

    The only way women get to compete in sports is to have separate leagues. Maybe we could have separate leagues for really short people, too.

    No affirmative action? Have you heard of Title 9? Maybe no affirmative action in professional sports, but it's very prevalent in college sports.

    Dumb idea. Sports are based on competition. Which is the opposite of affirmative action. If you try to mesh genders in sports, then you end up with two options; either acknowledge that on the whole women are not as physically capable as men (which the feminazis will NEVER do) or impliment "fairness" policies in sports which destroy the competitive element. In which case, you might as well just do away with sports altogether because you have now ruined their whole purpose - to see who is the best.

    They are great before puberty. After puberty, they ignore basic biology. The great majority of girls are not physically equal to most boys. Yes, there are exceptions, but they are rare.

    I have no problem with anyone playing any sport, however professional sports have a serious problem with co-eds.
    Women and men are NOT physically equal. Very few women can compete on a field of football with me, or on a basketball court or even a tennis court.
    If in school any girl can show she can compete on the same physical level as the guys then she should be allowed. However allowing a big strapping 6feet 9 inch tall guy to play on the girls basketball team seems a bit stupid to me.

    With regards to the USA public school system. They should have it. There seems to be no competition for acheivement, I don't see how this is any different. Let them have fun and give them all trophys and encouragement, and don't keep score.

    That's just like their classroom model when it comes to education. Plus, they will get off their butts and get physical so they don't sit around and get more fat.

    Plus, it will show the kids just how easy it is to be a educator in the DOE, and they will have great asperations to be an educator for the public school system of the USA. This will make for more union membeship, and a more powerfull government employees' union. It's a win win for all the educators.
