Have You Ever Done This?

Who really made the decision, which sports can only be for girls or boys? I mean, if you really think about it doesn’t that seem completely ridiculous? Especially since we have come so far in gender equality. Now in high school I was a good athlete and sports were my world. I was good enough to eventually go on and play college football. So I have to admit if a girl had been on our football team it would have been hard to swallow. But why? Why all of the stereotypes? Judgments? Bullying because of these ideas?

Why are some girls who want to play football labeled as “butch” or “wanting to be like a guy” or, in this case, a little boy who loves to cheer labeled as “girly” and bullied by other students?
