Breaking Gender Stereotypes

Here's a video about breaking gender stereotypes, from the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault.

Part of what caught my attention was the opening scene with a female football player, because I write one.  Stan's teammate Fortney gets a lot of that flack.  T-America has a rule that if a school doesn't have separate teams for boys and girls, the team has to let everyone play.  Sadly they can't make everyone be nice about it, and some people are still jerks.  That doesn't just affect Fortney; it affects her teammates, too, and the people around her due to her interactions with them.
