Comment: Insane

(See in situ)


Sure, make everyone uncomfortable so a few isolated individuals could go wherever they please. And, of course, use force.

I can totally see the "gays can play on the girls' basketball team" turn the sport into a "lets see how many guys we can get," since the literal physical difference WILL translate to a literal scoring difference. And I can't see a locker room full of straight girls feeling safe with a boy in the room, no matter how feminine he feels. Heck, girls don't feel comfortable changing in front of girls! When I was in high school playing for the athletics team, most of us strictly kept our eyes to ourselves and hoped to heaven that nobody would notice our many (self-perceived) bodily flaws.

This is just wrong on a lot of levels. If an individual school wanted to do this, that's up to them. Forcing all schools to do it, even those who have faith-driven reasons to be against it, to do it, is evil and wrong.

I hope the Catholic schools (and other religious and secular schools who feel similarly) resist the change.
