It seems some bishops said that girls and boys cannot compete in some of the same sports for modesty sake. I assume this rule is because girls are in fact competing in such sports. Girls would not be competing in these sports if they were not good enough to compete, I assume. So, even though the girls are just as good as the boys, they are forbidden to be on the teams because they are girls, right? I am ready to be otherwise enlightened, but I think this might be one more reason that some women drop out of the Catholic experience. If the girl could kick a field goal better than any other boy in the school, why not last her play on the team? Let the girl decide whether she feels safe playing in a contact sport with the boys. By the way, my sister Maureen could out-wrestle me.
