How about we just get girls’ equipment in the stores? It’s ridiculous that my sister had to go to 4 different sporting good stores to find women’s basketball shoes! They don’t need to be pink, they just need to fit!

I don’t agree...
girls can play boy sports but against girls.... just my opinion
God made us different for a reason...
and most all girl sports allow boys so I get it, why can’t girls play the boy sports too?? I get it girls/women are always second to none in all areas... and we are strong bad asses and should be recognized for abilities that rival boys but I think girls should play against girls and boys play against boys....
Sorry

I was encouraged to get into sports by my dad, mostly. My mom told me to stick with it and not quit when things got tough. I graduated with my Letterman Jacket for basketball, and it was awesome to hear my coach say how proud she was of me.

Even when you find women’s equipment, it tends to be more expensive because it’s “specialized.”
I usually buy the boys sections at my stores because they have all the good stuff.

WHOOOO? who really out here telling y’all you can’t throw good enough or run fast enough. No one obviously cause y’all the star athletes.
I am so sorry for this young generation being told that boys and girls are the same. They are not the same, and that’s NOT a negative thing.

I played on the boys highschool baseball team a few years cause we didn't have a softball team, even lettered. No one really cared and my teammates didn't treat me any different. I don't see why it would be a big deal. It was a fun experience.

I was literally laughed at by my high school wrestling coach for asking for try out information. I had 2 years wrestling experience with my local rec center and was pretty good

Yes most of these people are athletes. BESIDES THE YOGA CHICK, there’s nothing competitive about yoga. If that’s the only thing you do I don’t consider that an athlete.

I could never throw a ball well. I always thought it made me less of a male. And i was always laughed at.
But I also cannot touch my right shoulder with my fingertips. Simple fact is, my body is not designed for throwing a ball. No amount of practice would make it better. I can power lift better than most.
I am a good kisser though. And I do kinda like that better.
