What are the issues involved in girls playing football with boys?

Asked by burntbonez (5194 points ) January 6th, 2013

I just read a story about a girl who is 11, and heading into 6th or 7th grade. She wasn’t supposed to be playing Catholic League football in 5th grade, but they snuck her in and she was the captain of the team because she earned it.

But the Catholic league policy is no girls in football after that because it isn’t safe. She’d get hurt.

Like the boys don’t get hurt all the time.

What are the issues as you see them with letting girls play football with boys?
