In conclusion I do not necessary agree that boys are being raised wrong. I believe girls have the option to join different sports hey can join wresting, football and they also have their own league of soccer, basketball, and softball. We should not change now we raise our boys, because not every boy is the same way. In many schools they are gender neutral
I support this proposal. Girls should be allowed to play on boys’ sport teams when there isn’t a girls’ team for that sport to play on. As more girls look for athletic opportunities where they are able to play both fairly and successfully, they are subjected to sports teams composed of only boys. While some parents or coaches are against girls on boys’ sports teams, many others support these actions. However so, girls should be allowed to play on boys’ sports teams.
People who fit in one of these three categories often believe that they have earned the privileges and that if other people worked for it, they could also share those privileges. But in actual fact, these privileges are unlearned can’t be earned through hard work. They are simply given to you if you are born into any of the dominant groups, which you have no control over. This is supported by McIntosh (1988) “I have noticed men’s unwillingness to grant that they are over-privileged in the curriculum, even though they may grant that women are disadvantaged” (pg. 11) as well as Lorde (1984) “As women, we have been taught either to ignore our differences or to view them as causes for separation and suspicion rather than as forces for change” (pg.
These sport can have a very harmful effect on the health of these children. I agree with Jessica’s point that children need to enjoy the sport and act their own age rather than carrying the burden of their parent's expectation. The goal of the sport should be to make the children into a better person and teach them a valuable lesson in like of sportsmanship and teamwork. Children need to be taught that victory come in secondary to these lessons. They should not feel like a job to these
All the parents wants from the child is perfection and victorious so they would get a scholarship for college, but the odds of a child getting a scholarship for sport is very unlikely. This means that all the years of playing sports and trying to be the best was worth nothing for the child. This would scar the parent’s and the child relationship, all because of them playing a competitive sport. Another bad relationship can be with the coach. The coach yells at the child’s bad play and also criticize, just like the parents, but worse.
This is because some coaches and parents nowadays think it’s the right thing to do so none of the kids have their feelings hurt. “Her daughter rarely showed up for her soccer team. She had a terrible attitude, at the end she got a giant trophy and would have been devastated had she not.” (Turner 2) Children don’t know what working diligently is if they just expect a trophy at the end of it. When knowing that they’re going to get a trophy no matter what, kids tend to lay back and not try as hard. “A child shouldn’t have to be the best player on the field to get a trophy, but it should reward something, like improvement or team spirit.” (Turner 2)
Furthermore, the opposing opinions that are not recognized may drive away a large audience due to the bias for her stance. Ripley mentions how sports have been seen to drive kids away from trouble and bad influences. However, this is quickly shrugged off stating that, “it remains relevant for a small portion students.” Furthermore, the significance of exercise to learning and a healthy life is brought up but again, but quickly bypassed due to the insignificant percentage are affected. As a result, the lack of recognition of counterarguments develops a weak argument that can be seen through weak claims and tenuous
People that say yes see it as motivation to the sport and also makes them feel like they're worth something to the team if they get something in the end. But others that believe if kids know they get something in the end, then they won't even try or “give their best effort”. Some even think the participation trophy is pointless and unnecessary which will make kids think all they have to do is show up to practice and not accomplish anything or put forth the effort toward the sport. If all you do is give kids participation trophies, they'll think everything will get handed to them in their lifetime without any effort. It's basically also a informal sanction just giving all these kids in sporting groups a reward that have no meaning at
“Despite Title IX 's prohibition against sex discrimination, there are schools across the country that continue to exclude pregnant and parenting students from activities, kick them out of school, pressure them to attend alternative programs, and penalize them for pregnancy-related absences (Gough, 2011).” After having the 40-year anniversary of Title IX, women have achieved some equality in sports. However, there is still gender discrimination when it comes to of Since title IX is associated mostly with equal opportunities in sports for males and females, we should help give educators, parents, students, and lawmakers a better understanding of Title IX 's impact and challenges that remain in many areas of
Gender Inequality in sports is an issue as old as sport itself. I choose this topic because we as a society seem to sweep it under the rug time after time. Women in sports however, try to address the issue only to have it go on deaf ears, leaving them to continue in the sport hoping something will change. Over the last few decades, strides have been made, but he sport remains an institution dominated by men. These women, whether they are in sport or in the business world, want a fair chance to be on the same level as their male counterparts.
