Fraudulent Feminism vs. High School Football

Girls and women are naturally smaller, not as strong, and not as aggressive as boys and men due to the hormone Testosterone. Males have it and females don't. Females in most cases will never be as large, as strong, or as aggressive as males because of this. That is the reason that females cannot compete on a level playing field with males in any sport that requires strength and aggressiveness. That is the reason female boxers don't fight male boxers. The female boxer would have little to no chance of defeating the male boxer. It's the same situation on a football field. Practically no female football player could ever compete effectively against male football players, period.

Your statement that females don't have testosterone is wrong. From WebMD:

"It may surprise you to know that men don't have a monopoly on testosterone. Testosterone belongs to a class of male hormones called androgens. But women also have testosterone.

The ovaries produce both testosterone and estrogen. Relatively small quantities of testosterone are released into your bloodstream by the ovaries and adrenal glands. In addition to being produced by the ovaries, estrogen is also produced by the body's fat tissue. These sex hormones are involved in the growth, maintenance, and repair of reproductive tissues. But that's not all. They also influence other body tissues and bone mass."

PS -Floridastorm - Women fight men in the martial arts all the time. And sometimes they even win :)

those martial arts fights are carefully refereed,and fight for points.
not any all-out take-no-prisoners combat,no suffering damage.

Worse is in Armor,because they can't lift the heavy stuff and the other guys have to do that AND their own tasks. it takes more than one guy to change tank treads,and a lot of muscle. Or just loading ammo. In combat,the women would not be able to cut it,if another soldier was wounded and they had to do it.

Meritocracy is nowhere more manifest in modern America than on the high school football field.

The boys who play the game know who their most courageous teammates are, and they just as readily recognize the fastest, the smartest and the hardest working. In the weeks of physical training and full-pad practices that precede their first game, they learn to admire each other's skills and trust each other's character. Having been through much together -- and having started with equal chances to prove themselves on the field -- they become a team.

That is not what happened in Florida last...
