Boys and Girls....Are they different? s/o EDITED
This is a spin off from another thread on a girl being kicked off a football team. I am honestly suprised at some of the responses.
Would you tell your daughter she can't do something because she is a girl? I cannot imagine my daughter telling me she wants to do something and me telling her no because she is a girl.
I think it is sending an awful message to any young girl. I'm not saying I wouldn't be worried about some choices...For example, if she wanted to join the military and be in combat or play football, etc. But, I would never discourage or tell her no she can't because she is a girl.
ETA: I am not talking about physical differences. They obviously have different parts. But, do we tell them they cannot do something because of those parts?
