ive noticed some people saying that if u put a guy and a girl on the same training regimen that they would directly be able to compete against each
other. this is simply not true. Men have far more testosterone which promotes the building of muscle mass. This is why men who take steroids
generally develop "breasts" because their body begins to produce even more testosterone to produce muscle, which in turn causes them to create more
estrogen to balance it out, which causes the male breasts.
Are there women who can compete with men in some sports? sure. is it a normality? absolutely not.
I will give you a few examples. First.. the NBA vs the WNBA. That should be enough right there... but no I will continue. Look at what has
happened to the women who have competed in the men's golf tournaments. They get destroyed. The only way you are going to have really an equal match
is if you played something like volleyball maybe?
This is not me being sexist, it's just a fact of the matter, and I think you would find that most women would agree. There's only those very few
feminist types who actually believe that crap.
Also for this guy, im sure if there was a guys gymnastics team, there would have been no lawsuit etc etc. But im sure like most schools, there isnt
one due to lack of interest. The same reason not every high school has a hockey or lacrosse team, or field hockey. My High school didnt have a
Lacrosse team until the year after I left, and it was created by someone in my class, so he didnt even get to play but he got the club made. The
hockey team came about when I was a freshman, and the students had to pay to play.
Every high school cannot have every sport, because it costs money and you need to be able to field a reasonable team to even have a chance to have the
sport added, and even then its probably only going to be a club sport. I'm sure if that guy had really really wanted to do gymnastics he could have
found another school or a local club that had a competitive team.
Also, i saw someone mention female wrestlers on guys teams. Yea I saw a few of those when I wrestled... thank goodness none in my weight class ,
which probably would have been gross! ( i wrestled 189). But my friend forfeited one of his tournament matches because he refused to wrestle a girl.
In fact, in all the matches i've seen with a girl vs a guy in wrestling (prob. close to 30) the girl lost everytime.
