In late April, Pilaro was banned from participating in the fall 2012 season because school officials determined he was too dominant a player. His mother, Fairley Pilaro argued ”He is not a physical dominating presence on the field by any stretch. In fact, he’s far below the girl’s varsity height and weight.” The youngster is 4-foot-8 and weighs 82 pounds. He’s the team’s leading scorer.
I think maybe the argument might be this: If a student wants to play a sport that is only offered for the opposite gender, that student should get to play it. Well let me go on record and say that this argument is bullsh1t. If a girl wants to play a boys’ sports, and she can make the team, then she should get to play. The same doesn’t apply in the opposite direction. Why? Because [SPOILER ALERT FOR SOME OUT THERE] boys and girls are different*. This doesn’t apply to the early years, and sure there may be some gray area, maybe somewhere around 5th grade, but by middle school, it’s over. Is this equal treatment? Nope! Is this fair treatment? Yes.
