She is not going to play soccer if her only option is to play against boys. There is a reason young boys and girls tend to separate into sex based play groups. When I was in school there was a bit like that. Essentially at some grade folks could choose among different sports (volleyball, basketball, gymnastics etc.). So for those not wanting to get into contact sports they could essentially opt out. I.e. they were not sorted in or or excluded from the sport that way (and as far as I am of there were no regulations in that regard, just some level of common sense, I guess). Self-sorting vs regulated sorting, if you will. 19 minutes ago, TheVat said: Aww.. My least favorite thread just reproduced. They're so cute and harmless looking when they're young. Pretty soon we'll have a mating pair and the transgender threads will overrun Australia. Maybe, with luck, they eat cane toads or rodents. Seriously, I think the thread title is a self-answering question. Let trans/NB kids play on whichever team is the best fit with their size, strength, and level of aggressive. And there are always some kids who won't fit anywhere in a given sport. I was never going to be a football (American def.) player, and I got over that easily. Children's psyches are not Fabergé egg shells, unless adults tell them they are all the time. Agreed. I think kids are more resilient than they get credit for and I do think that certain GenX/Millenial parents are too obsessed in providing their kids with the perfect of optimal childhood, which seems (at best) to make them more anxious than they should be (and social media does the rest).
