Default InterGender Sports

As we generally strive to become more progressive in general, why not become progressive in sports as well.

Women should be allowed to compete right along side men in the same sport. There is no reason for men and women to have their own separate leagues. End the gender segregation, at one point in time as all of you may know, sports were segregated by racial boundaries but they aren't any longer. Why must this barbaric practice continue? Knock down the walls of injustice and allow women to compete on the same fields with men if they display the talent and skill to be in the same competition as men.

Exhibit A.


Discuss Why or Why Not. Choose your side.

If a woman can compete on the same level as a man then I don't see the problem, but in general they can't so abolishing women's leagues is a bad idea, or else 95% of female athletes would be out of a job.

Women's league's are currently under performing and not many of them are being watched.

I would have to look it up but for example the numbers for WNBA aren't as great as they should be because like no one is really watching them. The women's leagues can still stay around for the ones that aren't skilled enough to make it to men's league in that case then.

It would probably see female representation increase from 0% to 0% in the most popular male sports.

^exactly.

At first women my get signed to a team as a public statement or to drum up some publicity, but as a whole they just wouldn't get proper playing time. The importance of physicality in sports can't be stressed enough. I think the Canadian women's football team could annihilate the men's on pure skill, but the size difference would make it quite hard to not get muscled off the ball and pushed around. I think that becomes even more evident looking at a sport like basketball.

So are you saying that there aren't any female players that have the skill and talent to compete in popular male sports? Sounds a bit sexist imo.

Did you even read my post? I think it comes down to size, as men are just naturally bigger than women, and in physical sports they would have a very hard time.

The US women's soccer team would run circles around the US men's soccer team. If women have the same physicality as men to go along with the talent and skill why wouldn't it make sense for them to be able to join male dominated teams? You are pretty much just saying that women are weak and have no place with the big boys.

No I didn't read your post because I was responding yo Goofle and you slipped in.

No. I'm saying that it's a fact that women are naturally smaller than men, and when you look at professional sports it's very hard to be small and successful in your sport. By starting intergender sports not only would you diminish the already dwindling number of supporters for women's sports, as they would move on to watching what is currently "men's" sports, but you're also taking away the opportunity for thousands of females who just wouldn't be able to make it in the pros. Here's a chart of average sizes from the UK http://www.arts.ac.uk/media/arts/res...sults-Full.pdf, and if you don't think size matters in sports then you just aren't watching closely enough.
