This story proves that some parents are comfortable allowing their children to be who they want to be. Good for them!
The Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal reports that a girls soccer team draws repeated criticism because of the haircuts many of the girls have. In fact, the parents of some opposing teams think the girls are boys.
They’ve been ridiculed by opposing parents, coaches, even referees, all of whom refused to accept that they were not boys. At tournaments, they have been asked to prove their gender, and were told they didn’t deserve medals.
But instead of giving in and growing their hair out, the girls, with the help of their parents, coach and soccer club, are sticking with each other — and with their look. After a summer hiatus, they’re preparing for a new season beginning in September.
