I didnt want to bring this up on ats becuase i dont know the whole story but it relates to this topic so......
Yesterday I was coaching my 7 year olds girls soccer game.
I noticed the other team had a boy named Danny on the team. I assume he was a boy because he had a boys haircut and was named danny, also he looked
like a boy although he was smaller for a seven year old compared to the girls he was playing with.
I assumed maybe he signed up late for boys soccer, or maybe they ran out of spots so he got put on the girls team just cause he wanted to play. Then
I saw his cleats, and most of the girls didn't have as much pink and sparkles on there cleats as he did. I am now thinking his parents are putting
him in girls leagues because he identifys as a girl. I think this is a bad Idea,
1 Just because he feels different on the inside he gets to break the rules(not a good life lesson)
2 the league and sport have rules, it ceases to be a league or a sport when you hand pick what rules to follow.
I am only giving you my perceived facts on this matter, I dont know the parents, I dont know the boy, I understand this can have a number of other
factors involved. I guess how this relates to the OP, when you get to change your gender, doesn't that open the system up other facts that can be
changed, race...ect. At what point do we make all follow the rules of the given system, instead of treating people different based on there personnel
views and the hot topic the week.
