Gym Class Theorists (Yes That's a Thing): We Shouldn't Divide Boys and Girls In Team Sports Because That Hurts The Feelings of "Genderqueers"

So the correct response is to have girls compete directly with boys.

That'll have no adverse effects on non-genderqueer-girls, I'm sure.

They don't matter, of course. Only those with exotic niche self-definitions of gender should matter.

A physical education professor at Kent State University is encouraging fellow gym teachers to shun "gender segregated" and "team sports" to promote social justice in gym class.

Professor Jennifer Walton-Fisette is the lead author of "Moving forward with social justice education in gym teacher education," a recently published article found in the peer reviewed journal Physical Education and Sports Pedagogy.

In that article, Walton-Fisette highlights the emerging field of social justice gym pedagogy, and calls upon gym teachers to impart social justice issues into gym lessons, such as sexism, body image, religion, socioeconomic status and motor elitism.

LOL.

...

"If we are not including social justice education in our teacher education programs, then we are potentially perpetuating the problem," Walton-Fisette told PJ Media, explaining that she talks to students about power and privilege in nearly every class.

...

For many gym teachers, separating students by sex is de rigueur. But, Walton-Fisette tells PJ Media that dividing students by sex can highlight the humiliation that some transgender and genderqueer students feel.

"To divide students based on gender is not acceptable, nor do we want to make students be put into 2 binary boxes. There are children who do not identify as male or female, whether they are exploring their gender expression, are transgender, or genderqueer."

Team sports, such as lacrosse and badminton, are discouraged too, as they encourage competitiveness and are often "white-oriented" or otherwise racially stereotyped. By spending less time on team sports, more time can be spent on other activities, such as yoga, dance, hiking, biking, swimming, and rope-climbing, Walton-Fisette says.
