No more gender discrimination at SRCS

    1. Petition by

      Let Her Play

Gender discrimination should not be allowed on any level at any school. We kindly request the administration at Strong Rock Christian School change their currently policy and allow for both genders to play on any sports team of their choosing provided there are not teams already in existence for each sex. Being on a team should be based on ability and not gender. School is not only a place for learning academics. School also teaches our children valuable life lessons and social skills. Playing sports is good for our children as they learn teamwork, how to settle differences, communication skills, dedication, and the three P's: Practice, Patience and Persistence. We are not asking for the school to lower their standards for excellence. We are simply asking that all children be given a chance to succeed based on their abilities and not be excluded based solely on their gender.

      Because women's work is never done and is underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious and we're the first to get fired and what we look like is more important than what we do and if we get raped it's our fault and if we get beaten we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we're nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we're nymphos and if we don't we're frigid and if we love women it's because we can't get a "real" man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we're neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect childcare we're selfish and if we stand up for our rights we're aggressive and "unfeminine" and if we don't we're typical weak females and if we want to get married we're out to trap a man and if we don't we're unnatural and because we still can't get an adequate safe contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can't cope or don't want a pregnancy we're made to feel guilty about abortion and...for lots of other reasons we are part of the women's liberation movement. ~Author unknown, quoted in The Torch, 14 September 1987
