Girls vs Boys :: Quiz the Coach

Hey Coach!

OK, all the boys think that they are better at all sports than girls because they are the dominant sex. That doesn’t mean anything! I could outrun almost all of the boys at my school. Why do they think they are better?

Dear riki,

Wow, you can outrun almost all the boys at your school!? That’s awesome! However, the sad truth is that the boys still think they are better than girls because of the way things have been for thousands of years. Let me explain…

The Way Things Were…

Girls Gone Great!Girls Gone Great!

Did you know that just about 40 years ago, during the 1970s, there was a revolution for women’s rights. Before this time, women were not given the equal rights as men to participate in many events and physical activities… including sports. That means men have had a pretty good head start at being better than women at sports.

The Way Things Are…

Bigger But Not BetterBigger But Not Better

Men actually have bigger bodies than women… well most of them anyways. So naturally men have bigger muscles and that is another huge advantage that men have over women in sports.

Times are Changing

Girls in the GameGirls in the Game

You are living proof that times are changing! 50 years ago, when it was strange for a girl to play sports, it would be very rare for a girl to be the fastest person in her school. But now that it is perfectly normal for a girl to run and play sports, so girls like you have a chance to be the fastest.

Head to HeadHead to Head

Wouldn’t it be cool if one day a woman beats the World Record for the fastest “Man” in the 100 m or 200 m sprint. A lot of people say it’s impossible, but women today are running faster than the World Record set in 1950… I think you should go for it and then the boys at school would keep quiet!

HAVE YOUR SAY:

Do you think it's possible for a woman to one day beat the World Record for the fastest "Man" in the 100 m or 200 m sprint? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
