Female football players

I give these two girls from Burgard High School a lot of credit for putting on the pads. But are they really playing? It would never happen, but hypothetically, what if a 200 pound senior leveled one of them on the field? It wouldn't happen because their opponents would in all likelihood, let up. But, what if they didn't? I wonder if this would change peoples' opinions on this issue. I can see a 110 pound female wrestling in high school against 110 pound males. However, I'm not sure about a 110 pound female getting tackled by a 200 pound male. I'm all for gender equality, but when does common sense enter into the debate?

  1. Females on boys teams is just wrong. If five boys were on the girls field hockey team playing while the girls were on the bench would that be o.k. ?
