Girl football player booted from team for being a girl
“Maddy Paige’s football days are over, for the pure and simple fact that she’s a girl.
In order to keep her teammates from having “impure thoughts,” Paige was informed by the CEO of Strong Rock Christian School, a private academy in Locust Grove, Ga., that she won’t be welcomed on the school’s seventh-grade team.
“(CEO Patrick Stuart) said the boys are coming of age and starting to have impure thoughts and might lust after her,” Paige’s mom, Cassy Blythe, told the New York Daily News. “He said the locker room talk isn’t appropriate for her. And he said he’s been praying about it and came to the conclusion that he was making the right decision for the school.”
Paige had been playing football for years.
She started on the playground in second grade and as a sixth-grader, she played on the defensive line.
“It’s slowly starting to hit me that I’m not going to be able to have that fun anymore, so I was just hurt,” Page told Atlanta’s FOX 5.
Blythe and Paige have launched a Facebook campaign for female athletes called “Let Her Play” that they created last week and now has over 5,000 likes.
The mother and daughter aren’t giving up their fight to have Paige rejoin her coach and teammates.”
Maybe the school can make an all female football team.
