As many posted on the comments, when a girl is part of the football team: it receives praise; while a boy in an all-girls sport is "wrong" & "sexists".
Sorry, I forgot to post link:
Is it an “all-girl” sport with a rule prohibiting males, or is it a game that is traditionally played by girls? If the rules don’t prohibit it, and if he’s good, he can play. Period.
Wonder how long until we start seeing this on a wider scale due to Title IX.
“Tietze’s dominance has sparked renewed questions of the fairness in allowing a male athlete to play in a sport traditionally played in America by girls alone.”
So one guy taking on an opposing team of ten girls is considered unfair?
“Last week, PennLive.com asked that question and received a largely rancorous attack against male participation, with the exception of the two posters who actually were field hockey players.”
I thought guys and gals were supposed to be equal. Judging by the Feministas reaction it looks like reality says something else.
so, let’s review the facts:
a) he’s the star athlete on the team
b) on a team of female hardbodies, he’s the only male.
All I can say is... WAY TO GO, SLICK! (wink)
I’m trying to figure out how this guy keeps from getting distracted by all the hot chicks on the field he’s playing with and against. It looks like he has great focus and concentration and that tenacious male drive to win even when the odds are against him.
Would Tietze’s name be pronounced “teats”?
Actually I feel the same way about this as I do girls invading male domains. He should compete with his own.
We’re men, MANLY men, we’re men in Tietze . Yeah!
We roam around the forest looking for fights.
We’re men, we’re men in Tietze.
We rob from the rich and give to the poor, that’s right!
We may look like pansies, but don’t get us wrong or else we’ll put out your lights.
We’re men, we’re men in Tietze (TIGHT Tietze ),
Always on guard defending the people’s rights.
When you’re in a fix just call for the men in Tietze !
I get the tit for tat argument; but seriously, he shouldn’t be playing.
This is stupid. He shouldn’t be competing against girls.
However, if I was him, I’d stay on that team as long as I could.
I am the intergender field hocky champion!
Good way to meet girls.
I wonder if he showers with the team after games.
having a male play on an almost exclusive female team is insane.....it would be like allowing a pro football player to play on a HS team...
is it fair to allow that?....how about having a repeatedly held back 22 yro play on a HS team?....
of course not....there are different levels for different athletes...yet no one puts anyone down for playing on a lower level, except of course if its a girls team...
I'll bet this guy couldn't make any boys teams so he decided to be on a girls team....we are supposed to be surprised that he is excelling?.....like Peyton Manning wouldn't be a hit on a HS team...
This touches on one of my pet peeves: girls who want to compete with boys. My boys wrestle and every year there are girls on some of the teams. Who ever has to wrestle her is put in a no win situation. Wrestling is a very rough sport and most boys don’t want to treat a girl like that, and it’s awful to lose to a girl.
A boy playing against girls proves just how silly “equality” is when it comes to athletics.
