‘Impure Thoughts’ keeps 12-year-old girl from being part of a football team

A 12-year-old girl has been kicked off her Christian school’s football team over the fear she might arouse “impure thoughts” among her male teammates.

Maddy Paige of Jackson, Ga., was the starting left defensive tackle as a sixth-grader for Strong Rock Christian School, a private academy in Locust Grove, Ga.

But she was recently informed by the private school’s CEO that she was not welcome to play as a seventh-grader.

“It’s like taking my dream and throwing it in the trash,” Maddy told WXIA-TV in Atlanta.

As far as a reason, Maddy’s mother, Cassy Blythe, told the station: “In the meeting with the CEO of the school [Patrick Stuart], I was told that the reasons behind it were one, that the boys were going to start lusting after her and have impure thoughts about her and that the locker-room talk was not appropriate for a female to hear even though she had a separate locker room from the boys.”

    Wow, this is the same sort of pretext used by certain Middle Eastern religions to exclude women from interacting with men in normal society. Perhaps we are all much more alike than one might believe from watching the news.

    Poor girl. She should go to school in a burkha just to make a point. ALL the girls in her class should do that — I wonder how Principal Stuart would handle that?!
