This is true, it is bias, but throughout history, and even in today's world, at least most of the time, Men are the stronger of the two sexes. Therefore you have a girl who can dominate guys her age in a brutal sport, and people praise her because thats not common for a girl to be able to do that. but if a boy, who is much stronger than girls, joins a girls athletic team, it is seen as ridiculous because he IS much stronger. Especially if he hit puberty, even if the women are older than him, puberty is going to drive his hormones and testosterone up, and he will be MUCH stronger than most of the girls on those teams, therefore, there is room for being bias.

would anybody ever eat a product with that boy on the box though?

She's only better cause its a little league. A girl wold have no chance playing varsity football on even a high school league.
User avatar #231 - awesomenessdefined (12/16/2012) [-]
Was kicked out for being better than every one else.
That's just the stupidest ******* thing I have ever heard. That's something kids tell their friends or parents.
"Yeah, they kicked me out of the Science fair because my project was too good and it made all the other kids jealous.

Oh look, another post made by a white guy complaining about how they're suffering from discrimination... This is new and exciting.
#259 to #200 - funnynsfw (12/17/2012) [-]
Hey buddy, I posted this an I'm not even white

Eat a cock
#202 to #200 - joeyfisher (12/16/2012) [-]
Because this is about RACE right?
#203 to #202 - malifauxdeux ONLINE (12/16/2012) [-]
You can be discriminated against for sex too...
User avatar #204 to #203 - joeyfisher (12/16/2012) [-]
"post made by a WHITE guy"

What does being white have to do with this?
#205 to #204 - malifauxdeux ONLINE (12/16/2012) [-]
Not much. Just me being annoyed about a member of the most advantaged group in America complaining about discrimination. I'm a white guy too, but these posts are really getting tiresome.
#210 to #205 - joeyfisher (12/16/2012) [-]
THIS ISN'T ABOUT RACE.
User avatar #208 to #205 - TheFixer (12/16/2012) [-]
not much. then why bring up that this person might be white?
User avatar #213 to #208 - largilloquent (12/16/2012) [-]
white men used to be the most advantaged, now we cant be proud of being white, we cant be better than girls or other races ... we cant even dance :'(

or jump
User avatar #218 to #213 - TheFixer (12/16/2012) [-]
well its not "politically correct" for whites to be better but then again i dont give a **** about politically correct. **** it if we are better than someone we are better.
User avatar #221 to #218 - largilloquent (12/16/2012) [-]
but thats not how it works, if a white man and a black man apply for a job, same skills exp and whatever, the black will get it BECAUSE hes "disadvantaged"
User avatar #264 to #221 - TheFixer (12/17/2012) [-]
and thats reverse discrimination.

I was referring to the poster... I don't see how you're not understanding this.
#217 to #209 - anonymous (12/16/2012) [-]
Just because he isn't discriminated racially, it is okay for him to be discriminated due to his gender, that's ******* logical
User avatar #215 to #209 - TheFixer (12/16/2012) [-]
yeah i did read it. and you might be what we (me and docot house) like to call an idiot. race has literally nothing to do with this post. this post illustrates sexual descrimination towards men.
User avatar #229 to #215 - largilloquent (12/16/2012) [-]
bear in mind it might not even be gender, what if the girls just suck? who gives a **** if a boy is better than crappy players? whereas if the girl is up against stern competition than she is the underdog in a very difficult game.
#222 to #215 - malifauxdeux ONLINE (12/16/2012) [-]
I never said it had anything to do with the post, just the poster. I don't see how you aren't getting that. I even agreed that race didn't have anything to do with the post. So you pointing it out over and over again just makes you sound senile.
User avatar #237 to #222 - andalitemadness (12/16/2012) [-]
If you point out that specifically a white guy is being discriminated against, the implication is that you are talking about race. This is about male discrimination so you should have just said a guy.
User avatar #227 to #222 - TheFixer (12/16/2012) [-]
its implied when you said "Oh look, another post made by a white guycomplaining about how they're suffering from discrimination... This is new and exciting" the fact that you singled out the race is the part that everyone is jumping on. you could have just said a male/guy but we both know that would have generated a ********* of anti feminists.

Or you know,you can do the male equivalent of field hockey ...
User avatar #236 to #197 - notmutzaki (12/16/2012) [-]
I would actually see it the opposite way, if anything. I hear much more of female lacrosse players.
#232 to #197 - coconutsquirtgun (12/16/2012) [-]
the equivalent is male field hockey
User avatar #245 to #232 - sexwithyourwife (12/16/2012) [-]
While you're right the original topic said that male field hockey is close to none existent so lacrosse is the next best thing if you wanted to play field hockey without being banned for being better then everyone else and not have to deal with court.
User avatar #225 to #197 - PubLandlord (12/16/2012) [-]
Lacrosse is pretty different from hockey , there are quite a few mens hockey teams here in the Uk and lacrosse
#206 to #197 - TheFixer (12/16/2012) [-]
or you know you can read the part about the male field hockey team being next to non existant. also you're ignoring the girl who joined the male football team and was rewarded for it.

I meant lacrosse, you can tell by the fact that,that's a lacrosse stick... and do you even really give a **** ? your just going to forget about these kids in a couple minutes anyways. No one cares if a boy can beat some girls at field hockey even if they're older no one cares about field hockey for that matter, but most Americans like football and for a little girl to play better then older boys that seems more "inspiring" or whatever the **** there point is ,life's not fair ,to anyone. Some great singers don't make it to stardom but ******* nikki manaj and lady gaga do. just as an example
User avatar #219 to #206 - awesomenessdefined (12/16/2012) [-]
He's talking about lacrosse, you dork.
#216 to #206 - whaleman (12/16/2012) [-]
thats a picture of lacrosse, which is tougher than male field hockey. Hence the male equivalent part. Men are also biologically advantaged when it comes to coordination and strength and therefore are normally better at sports.

this still doesnt cover the part where a girl joined male football destroyed the boys and got rewarded while a male did the same thing (a member of the opposite sex joining a team of the other sex and pwned) and got punished for it.
#239 to #223 - anonymous (12/16/2012) [-]
not quite the same. He played against older girls. Girls physically develop faster than boys so he was quite disadvantaged.
User avatar #260 to #239 - TheFixer (12/17/2012) [-]
okay so why did he get punished for dominating them?
#234 to #223 - whaleman (12/16/2012) [-]
Its atypical and therefore "eye catching". Women are not normally better than men at sports. It happens, but that usually requires more effort on the women's side. As to why they put this girl's face on a wheaties box, my counter-argument is who in their right mind eats wheaties? They taste like **** . Clearly this is a grab for advertisement. Lastly, we're talking about the generally nonsensical world of sports. I'm not going to justify a clear double standard, but generally women's sports are a little less difficult and a lot less physical than men's sports. If they were equal, then everyone would be playing one sport that isn't segregated by gender. Therefore, going from men's to women's sports is akin to taking a step down on the ladder as opposed to taking a step up. That is how its viewed. Right or wrong, its not gonna change and that is clear enough.
User avatar #195 - lazypaul (12/16/2012) [-]
To be fair it is different since boys are naturally stronger, faster etc than girls. It's quite unusual for a girl to be better at boys at sport where-as it's normal for a boy to be better than girls.
#246 to #195 - anonymous (12/16/2012) [-]
Girls develop faster than boys, so at a young age they would actually have a certain advantage. Once you get past the point where most boys have hit puberty, then I could see making a story out of it.

User avatar #164 - sweetsolitude (12/16/2012) [-]
You know what really grinds my gears?
The school physical fitness tests. The requirements for guys is so much higher than for girls, and I always met the guy's requirements with no effort. I'm not athletic, I don't work out at all. I'm actually a bit overweight. It's rather insulting that so little is apparently expected of me.
User avatar #187 to #164 - Fagela (12/16/2012) [-]
Something that really grinds my gears, is the fact that my gym teachers mark me harder than a lot of the other people in my class because they know how well I'm doing in my other classes. On my mid-term report, 90+ in all classes, but a ******* 75 in gym. It's not like I'm so fat **** who does nothing, I actually can do the stuff and am fairly good at it, and I'm getting a god damn 75, just because I'm getting 90+'s in my other classes.
User avatar #226 to #187 - awesomenessdefined (12/16/2012) [-]
Is that what you tell your parents so they don't get mad at you?
Hears a little tip, dude, your gym teacher doesn't care what you get on your other subjects. There isn't some rule that a kid can't have 90s in every subject. If you're getting lower than average, it's because you either suck at it, or you have a bad attitude.
User avatar #254 to #226 - Fagela (12/17/2012) [-]
Why would I need to tell my parents this, if I'm doing good in every other subject? That makes zero sense to me. I can see your point on that I might suck at it or have a bad attitude, you raise a valid argument, but I should not be getting the same mark as people that I easily preform better than.
User avatar #256 to #254 - awesomenessdefined (12/17/2012) [-]
We can't take your word for that.
User avatar #258 to #256 - Fagela (12/17/2012) [-]
You're right you can't, but I will have to trust you with that fact that you'll trust me.

How is this a double standard? The girl joins a peewee football league not an all boys football league and the guy joins a varsity girls team. He should be kicked off the team unless he has a god damn ****** .
#250 to #158 - thisisausernamec (12/16/2012) [-]
That is not the case, the double standard goes waaay beyond that, i want to say its called title 9 but im not 100%, but in short it says that in public school you have to have an equal amount of sports for girls that you do for boys, and scince girls are less likely to inolve themselves in a certain athletic team, the school dose not make teams for girls, but in saying that when you get the occasional girl that plays football they have to let her join the team, the problem occurs when you get the occasional boy field hockey player, and they say "there is already a substantial amount of boy sports available, so it would not be fair to allow you to play this sport" so at the heart of things the boys are being punished for girls lack of interest in sports, its just sad to see (like my teachers son) who has played field hockey all his life cant play in highschool, not even allowed to be team manager, but a wrestling coach can take a girl that is god awful, but her on varsity, and get free points for his team because he knows alot of boys will refuse to wrestle them and give up a forfeit

As someone who just finished off my 9th year of minor football, there are very few girls that play, and even fewer that stand out.
