A state championship high school baseball game is over before tonight's first pitch, after one Arizona team forfeited rather than play an opponent with a girl in the lineup.
Our Lady of Sorrows refused to play Mesa Preparatory Academy in Thursdays scheduled Arizona Charter Athletic Association state championship game, because that team has Paige Sultzbach at second base. The 15-year-old agreed to sit out a pair of regular season victories over Our Lady of Sorrows, which is run by the Society of St. Pius X, an traditionalist church that broke away from Roman Catholic Church over Vatican reforms in 1970. But with everything on the line tonight, Sultzbach wasn't willing to stay glued to the bench even if it means no game at all.
In a statement to FoxNews.com, an Our Lady of Sorrows official said the school had no choice but to forfeit because it has a strict policy prohibiting participation in co-ed athletics and believes in "forming and educating boys and girls" separately.
Teaching our boys to treat ladies with deference, we choose not to place them in an athletic competition where proper boundaries can only be respected with difficulty, the statement read. "Our school aims to instill in our boys a profound respect for women and girls."

she must be in the top .25% of women or the guys she plays against suck.... before you get her into "grappling" self defense I hope you realize that even if she were attacked and lucky enough to get someone in an arm-bar, ankle lock, choke hold that someone strong enough can pick her up and slam her back first into the deck, unless she's a horse... but since she can smoke men in B-ball she might be a hefty chick.
I had the same type of BS pulled on me by an instructor that made a big deal about beating on guys because of her training. I didn't choke her out but her face was awful purple, the snot was coming out of her nose while she tried to breath through her teeth and the vein in the middle of her forehead stuck out like a hose. I even let her get on top and straddle me the second time. My point is that in a "real" competition the aggressive nature and superior upper body strength of men usually wins out. Otherwise you'd see women in the NBA, MLB, NFL and my favorite Mixed martial arts.
The only place that women beat men is in Hollywood, Cable/Network Television, Broadway and Angelina Jolie movies. All places inhabited by girly men with sexual identity issues trying to make all men metrosexual eunuchs.
I like coed sports, like mixed tennis leagues, soft ball and jogging/triathalons etc.. but when it comes to full contact sports where I'm trying to really win I'd rather not have to kick a woman's ass. Cause its' not a good thing to hurt a lady and whether you win or lose you still look like a d#ck beating a woman.
Heck I ended up losing to the female instructor in the long run, cause I ended up in "office hours" and was lucky that was the end of it.
Then lets bring it home shall we? What's the difference between that school and the MAYA School in Dearborn, MI which doesn't recognize women's rights of equality either?
I don't care what religion you are dude, if you can't recognize equality of all then you can't call yourself a true christian.......
I get a kick out of you guys and your own self defined "moral standards" trying to preach to me. You got your own Fricking problems with your Swaggerts, your Bakers, your catholic pedophiles, and the list goes on and on and on........
But I digress, if the school chooses not to recognize the equality of sexes that is accepted in the conference and state they participate in then they should be banned from all competitive athletics..........
They knew from the beginning that women were allowed to participate in athletics but yet they chose to wait until the championship game to stake their boycott? Cry me a river and revoke the team's right to participate in any state sponsored athletics.........
You’re living a life of pretense.
I believe the real reason they wouldn’t play them is because girls have cooties. It’s a well known fact.
I guess I missed something in the article. I didn't realize that Paige Sultzbach had been FORCED to play baseball on that team....
Here I thought her participation was voluntary and her ability had earned her a spot on the team.......
Thanks for the clarification......
Try reading the whole story. You missed the point entirely.
“Youre living a life of pretense.”
Oh, well in that case...
This thread is an embarrassment to FR. It might as well have been posted by a DU mole to root out all gender bigots in an attempt to make the whole community seem like worthless, uneducated hicks.
Couldn’t agree with Hot Tabasco more. In my mind, I come back to the female Pediatric Oncologist who helped my daughter and simply KNOW that she could wipe the damn floor with all the gender-oppressing losers on this thread. But the primitive folks would rather have them in the kitchen and the bedroom only. Just like the Saudis. Some company you keep...
Mean Girls in the Military
Monday, June 28, 2004
On March 23, 2003, three servicewomen were captured during the ambush of the 507th Maintenance Unit in Iraq. Nine months later, NBC and ABC News fleetingly aired excerpts of a disturbing Iraqi video showing the battered faces of the unconscious, sexually assaulted Pfc. Jessica Lynch and her dying friend, single mother Pfc. Lori Piestewa. Immediate release of that graphic video might have changed the course of the war.
In 1992, experts proposed a solution for that possibility. Specialists who train potential prisoners of war in Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) techniques testified before the Presidential Commission on the Assignment of Women in the Armed Forces.
They said it was necessary to use special exercises to desensitize the men so that the enemy would not exploit the captives heightened concern about female colleagues being physically and sexually abused.
The SERE trainers added that the entire nation would have to be conditioned to accept combat violence against women.
“Immediate release of that graphic video might have changed the course of the war. “
Get back to me when either you or Elaine Donnelly know the first damn thing about the U.S. military. Until then, please refrain from “Learning me”.
Do I really need to point out how absurd it is that you relate two non-combat POW’s gettting captured and tortured by people who hate women to some fundamental offshoot cult preventing kids from playing baseball against a young woman (while insulting her and her peers in the process)?
Would you send your wife or daughter off to combat?
Just another sport, right?
Elaine Donnelly’s Bio
Perhaps it is the fool who feels like he can't simply let people make decisions for themselves, for whatever reason they choose, who is actually the idiot?
We faced a team with a girl on their team, and they smoked us. Hey! If they can play they can play.
You seriously have no clue.
You’ve seen your wife spike on men in a volleyball game.
Great. So that totally negates the greater than one sigma advantage in upper body strength and speed that men have on women.
BTW, did you know that lots of women get hurt or killed each year trying to defend themselves from perps using the fancy martial arts that they wasted thousands of dollars learning?
I’d seen women with black belts get creamed by “average Joes” with no martial arts training, but who could bench press 250 lbs. (which is not actually that much, considering).
This nonsense about women being physical equal with men is simply bilious mental masturbation. If it were true, then the entirety of gender roles throughout history would not be what they were.
Sure, sure, there are always going to be some women who can run faster or whatnot than some men. That’s because there is some overlap of the bell curves. Nevertheless, no matter how fast or strong a woman may be, she is not going to be faster or stronger than a man who engages in similar levels of working out and training. An female olympian can easily outrun a middle-aged male accountant with a spare tire. She will, however, pretty much ALWAYS get beat by a male olympian in the same sport.
