So all this got me thinking. How would you handle this sort of thing as a parent, booj? Would you have encouraged her to sit out the games, or to play them? Sit out the championship game? If your kid wanted to play in a sport that was predominately played by boys (baseball, football, etc.), would you let them, or would you be afraid of them getting hurt/teased/what have you? How would you explain to a younger child this idea of gender segregation?
ETA: or conversely, how would you handle this situation if you were the parent of one of the boys on the rival team, and they didn't want to play against the girl? Assuming you had chosen to send your kid to a "fundamentalist" Catholic school.
