    You can tell which guys don't have much experience with girls. They are scared to get anywhere near them. Especially bball. They defend them like 5 feet away.

    Quite definitely. It really may not allow for players to be able to play at their best during the matches which I'd assume is not something needed.

    Then those guys have to get over their delicate sensibilities. SPIKE THAT BALL IN HER FACE.

    I don't even know if there is an explicit rule against gender integration in professional sports. There was some commotion a few years ago about Annika Sorenstam or whatever the fuck her name is playing with the men in golf, but that's golf and fat old white dudes love complaining when their little gentlemanly parades get rained on [delicate sensibilities, yet again]. If a woman is good enough to play on the level, I don't see why a team wouldn't let her on. There might be some intra-locker room dynamics issues with some of the chauvinists, but you'd hope the desire to win would override the desire to be douche. Also, think of the marketing/endorsement/brand expansion. Gold mine.

    Yeah, that's just the bio differences. Males typically get more height, longer limbs (even including the wrist to elbow measurement), and wider shoulders ( = more torque) and more upper body muscle. What else can be said about it? It's just physics.

    ... I doubt many women could realistically compete in contact-team sports with the best male professionals, but I do agree with other comments in this thread that, if a woman is tough enough to get in there and play, you should treat her like any other player and not "go easy on her."

    My son & daughter (one grade apart) are on the same co-ed Bball team. I think it's a great thing socially, it teaches teamwork in a mixed gender setting, which is very different than girls or boys only. As a learning experience, it's good. If we're talking about competative aspects, I could see how it could end up being difficult as the kids get more serious about the sport.

    Sounds rather intriguing. Well, you must weigh the energy wasted upon fixing the delicate sensibilities in the men on the team over the energy used on how well the woman plays the game with the men. If the energy used is less than the energy it would take to increase another man's level to the level of how good the woman plays then right there with ya. Hmm one simplistic matter of many. We must look into other things.

    I thought it mildly interesting that sports are some of the last places where gender segregation is still commonly accepted in this country. The reasoning, of course, is that men and women have very different physiology and so they are uneven when playing together.

    Personally, I think it would be kind of neat to do it, and it's not like it would mean that the single gender games would have to be discontinued or anything. I think if I were a female athlete, all the talk about the general superiority of male athletes would just make me more determined to play amongst them.
    I think it's feasible.
