Should sports at school be separated by gender?

Asked by: rainbowland
  • No need to separate if the grading remains separated

    For mixed teams it's fair to assume that both have to subscribe to the same rules for violence and taking care of each other. It's beneficial for children to learn that you have to play in a way that makes it possible for all to be part of it and mixed sport classes don't mean there can't be a half an hour when the there are separated teams to enable the guys to be as rough as they want.

    You should not get graded for whether or not your team won but for your technique and effort according to your gender and age. So there is no problem to have mixed sports classes if the genders final grades are according to their actual abilities. Most athletics grading systems have different grade ranges for different ages so kids in one class might perform the same and get different grades anyway, due to their year of birth.

    It can be also very reassuring for guys that are not as fit as other's to see that they at least are better than most of the girls (which they usually are) and can be a great chance for sporty girls to compete with guys that can push them to their limit.

    School sports can only benefit from variety to teach acceptance and tolerance, while still offering all the opportunities to bring yourself to the limit, if you want to.

  • Yes and no

    If there can be women on the team without any double standards then yes of course. If not then no find something else. What I mean by no double standards is physical fitness and ability is to be equally expected of both men and women. Punishments are to be equal between both men and women. Sports can get violent so if she starts a fight she can't pull the gender card if she gets clocked. When men get in groups especially in sports there is a lot of raunchy humor, if she whines about everything they say and everyone has to tip toe with their words she doesn't belong there. To sum things up if she can do what the guys can do then no there should be no gender separation

  • Yes and No

    Should sports be separated by gender, maybe not. It really depends on which particular sport you are attempting to discuss, as they all have different physical requirements. That being said: in most sports, the average male has a physical advantage over the average female.

    Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Golf, Tennis, Track and Field, and Lacrosse are all separated into separate teams, because the level of competition is drastically different. Males are generally the more athletic, and more durable, competitor, and this makes a substantial difference in sports, which is why the genders are separated.

    Wrestling, on the other hand, is completely unseparated, allowing males and females to compete against each other. While you occasionally will see females excel in wrestling, this is very rare, and more often than not, the female competition results in other issues. Wrestling is a grappling sport, and all it takes is one wrong hold for a parent to be offended by the way a young man is executing a maneuver on their daughter. The risk of injury is also much higher for females, and this would undoubtedly translate to football if females were allowed to play.

    So in essence, if sports are not separated by gender, then females would universally have to up their level of competition, which would inevitably lessen the amount of female athletes. In addition, the female athletes that remained would be forced to work harder to earn the same physical achievements, and the risk of female injury would be much higher.

  • There are differences.

    Here's the honest truth of it. Men are better at athletics. Most of the time, boys are better at atheletics. Want proof?

    100m Dash for men - Usain Bolt - 9.58
    100m dash for woman - Florence Joyner 10.49
    200m dash for men - 19.19 - Bolt
    200m dash for woman - 21.34 - Joyner
    2000m dash for men - 4:44.79 - Hicham Guerrouj
    2000m dash for woman - 5:25.36

    We are not the same. One doesn't necessitate superiority over another, but your average girl - (not the exceptional muscle machine like these woman) getting clocked in football by a man with 200 plus pounds on her isn't very fair. There is a reason sports are divided.

    Calm down woman. It's going to be okay.

  • What ages or grade levels?

    This question is very broad. School can mean from 5 years old to 18 years old, big difference there. Sports should be co-ed up through middle school but definitely separated in high school.

    During pre-adolescence, or basically before hormones have activated boys and girls tend to be pretty similar. Once those hormones get going girls tend to lean towards their appearance and doing well in school and boys tend to become more athletic.

    High school is no place for mixed gender teams. I was on the freshman JV boys soccer team in my high school and the girls Varsity coach thought it would be fun to have a game so the girls could experience rough play. Bad idea, not only did we win 3-0 despite some unfair advantages, but two of the girls had to miss their next game due to injuries. It wasn't fun for either side in the end.

    Then I moved to varsity and the physicality only increased, and this is soccer we're talking about, not football. I cannot imagine girls being on that same Varsity team.

  • Yes and no

    Hi guys, I would really appreciate it if you could answer this question. If you think yes and no, please put your opinion under YES and put your supporting headline as YES AND NO. Just to let you all know, the question says only at school, so please try to not go off topic.
    Thanks so much and I really appreciate it! :)

  • Yes yes yes

    People need to separate the gender because boys are not allowed to hit girls so when they play a game that has girls they have to try to touch the girl so it going to be way harder for a boy to play a game that has a girl in it.

  • Why were they in the first place?

    Girls CAN compete with guys and it's as simple as that. Who said they couldn't? Yes, higher levels of testosterone leads to greater muscle mass, but if a girl works hard to build the same muscle mass and skill, why couldn't she be on the "main" sports team? It's not like it hasn't ever been done, in fact, it's been proven that girls can compete on boy's sports teams multiple times. Are girls more naturally equipped to be stronger? In most cases, no. BUT that doesn't mean they can't hone in on the same skills like everyone else (not to mention that strength is not everything needed to be a good athlete). TL;DR: sports teams should choose their members based on skill and not gender

  • Equality distributed equally

    What message is being sent to students attending an institution that is designed to educate them for the lives ahead of them when they can learn in a classroom together, but cannot play sports together? Is the message one that suggests that equality is possible only on a mental level between the two genders and that there is no chance that opposite genders can achieve the same on a physical level.
