From El camino real
Score one for common sense
'We're trying to form the boys to be gentlemen, and knocking a girl around on a football field is the furthest thing from that,' said Father Gerard Beck, bursar for the Society [of St Pius X]'s United States district office in Kansas City. 'Football toughens the boys and teaches them to fight for a cause within a certain structure. It's not a game for girls, and not a game for boys to play against girls. We don't want to train them to treat girls that way.'
Somewhere between the extreme of some online against all girls' sport (¿Qué?) and having girls on mixed US football teams there's a golden mean.
