'Boys will be boys and girls will be girls. But when girls and boys come out to play, it's the adults who make matters complicated. Commonwealth Court has a chance to correct a long-ago decision that contributed to an unusual problem.
It scarcely makes sense, but high school boys can play on girls' sports teams in Pennsylvania if the sport is offered only for girls. The best example is field hockey, a game that is popular for males in other countries but not in the United States.
Commonwealth Court needs to hold a hearing and see what is obvious: Rigid gender blindness should not mean putting girl athletes at risk and denying them the chance to play because boys are on the team. Let girls be girls.'
