girls should play football with the boys because girls can do what ever a boy can do. If a male can play a female sport like cheerleading then why cant a female play a male sport like football. girls are justa as sttrong as the boys. girls are just as smart as boy, they are just as fast as boys and they are just as confident as boys.

Hello Mack00, and thanks for the debate! I will get right to your arguments.

"girls should play football with the boys because girls can do what ever a boy can do."

I'm no sexist, but I hardily disagree. Can Girls do this?
(http://youtube.com...)

That was Fedor Emelianenko, one of the greatest fighters in history as far as I am concerned. I read this in another debate on this topic, but it seems apropriate to say: Find me a woman who can fight this guy to a draw and I will concede this debate.

"If a male can play a female sport like cheerleading then why cant a female play a male sport like football."

There are a few reasons, but the most obvious is the amount of physical contact. If girls played football with boys, and a boy accidentally put his hands where they shouldn't be while trying to simply tackle a girl with the football, all that girl would have to do is scream "sexual harassment" and there would be a mess of lawsuits. Ther are sadly MANY people who would not think twice about doing something like this, so in order to protect the girls, boys, and parents, they wisely do not allow boys and girls to play football together.

"girls are justa as sttrong as the boys."

Not really. The male physique is naturally bigger and stronger. I realize that some men are not as strong as some women, but men are naturally more capable of lifting heavy objects and things like that. If you look at bench press records, you will find men who can bench 1000+ pounds. Can women bench 1000+ pounds? No, they are not physically capable. This is not an insult, because I am not in any way trying to say that men are better. Men are not better then women, but they are stronger.

Here you will find that the mens weight lifting records are consistantly higher than the womens.

"girls are just as smart as boy, they are just as fast as boys and they are just as confident as boys."

Much of this depends on the person. Athough I am quite sure I read somewhere that womes IQ tests generally come out higher then that of men, I'm have no proof, and it realy has nothing to do with the topic.

Some boys are faster then girls, and some girls are faster then some boys. This is true, but still does not rid us from the problem of too much physical contact.

My main point, then, is that girls should not play football with boys because there is too much physical contact, and therefore too much of a chance for lawsuit.

Thanks!

Given that my opponent missed her last round, I have nothing else to say. I can simply press the point of sexual harassment being a problem. I look forward to my opponents reply!

Thanks!

I believe the debate was about boys and girls not men and women. Girls on average are actually bigger then boys until after age 11, and there are plenty of girls who remain close enough in size after that to continue playing for awhile. SO yes girls can play in YAFL, Middle school etc. But no woman can beat Fedor. But women can compete in MMA with each other and be really good at it.

i had to go against 3 girls in a game last year and it was hard to get my self to sack one of them. the mental aspect for some men is really hard and girls take advantage of that. should we really teach men to atack and defile girls like that. but girls can play don't get me wrong. i had to ref a powder puff game and they played like you wouldn't belive

Actually there was a female on our football team last year.
She was an awesome field goal kicker.
