yes if a women is aware of the consequences she should be alllowed. i know women and anyone for that matter hate to be told they cant do something. in amerifa we strive for equality. if women can joi the militart then yes they can play a sport with men. its always a choice, if they want too they can, if they dont they dont have too. on a serious competition level every one should be treated equally. everyomes earned thier position there on that field, ringg or court. if a women wants tl challenge herself on thst level, i applaud her ambition.

In my Tongan culture, us men were supposed to treat the women with much respect (I cannot stress out 'must' anymore) And as a younger child, we weren't really allowed to physically interact with them. I mean, we were allowed to help with things and just talk. But most of the time, we were divided from each other. Girls would play with girls, and the boys with the boys. But I find your theory @I_Voyager how some people can be raised to interact with women more to be interesting. I think this can be true but in my case, I think I know why I feel this way.

Do you think it could have been a matter of the culture of the time? I remember growing up in a house where there was no strong sense of "men do X, women do Y". Just humans do human things. My friends and I were all similarly raised, and our circles of friends included both men and women who were single or in relationships. We didn't divide into gender groups. As such, nothing felt awkward. I'll admit, we weren't body-checking each other all the time. But I wonder if a group of people who were used to playing with women from the beginning wouldn't have the same problem?

It certainly doesn't help though if the girl isn't tough enough to take a hit like a man can, but there are some of them out there and you have to soften up to protect her.

Back when I played little league football, we were playing this team which had a female player. She was the running back and I was assigned multiple times to her. It was an awkward experience for me, instead of wanting to hurt the person I was against, changed to feelings that made me feel weak inside. Not to mention how extremely cute she was. But that game we lost because of how soft we were being with her. I mean its a girl and the first thing you think is to be gentle. Females playing full contact with males just give them a sense of awkwardness. But women and men are both equally as good as each other.

they might get squashed. I know personally I'd hate to play with men

If the women choose to be in sports that have both genders playing, there should be no problem playing full contact.

it is true that women can do things just as well as men but when it comes to sport etc there are physiological and biological differences that means men are stronger and faster, don't get me wrong women and men can play together however when it comes to world cups or Olympics it would be unfair to put men and women in the same category because on average men are like I said stronger and faster

I feel womens' full contact sports should not be lesser than that of mans; but if women were to join mens professional (lets use football as an example) football there would be the problem of accidental hands. There would just be way too many problems, lawsuits, and arguments that just are not needed in this world. As far as non-professional, the same concept applies but if there is no female football (or other sport) in High School or College then I won't stop them. In fact I would sign them up myself.
