So why is it okay to tell boys "tough luck, try something different", but girls need to be accomodated? If these Pasternak girls don't want to play on their HS girls hockey team they can a) play another all-girls sport that is more competitive b) move to a more competitive school c) play on a non-school team - even with boys d) develop their skills at a high level at any number of hockey camps

My HS didnt have a football team, I didn't complain that my obvious talent (joking) on the field was being unjustly suppressed. If football was important I would go to a different school or play on a team outside school or what I actually did - play rugby. What makes these girls so special?
I do also know that these girls have played other sports, lacrosse in specific, where they made it to the men's under 17 Nationals with Team Manitoba.

I know because my brother played against them.
