Why this girl was excluded from the youth football tournament



Milagros "Mili" Hernandez had great success at the football stadium. She is so niche, the 8-year-old girl is allowed to play in a team of Omaha, Nebraska with 11 years old.

Unfortunately this past weekend, it was not Mili's talent that made her part of a virological news but the fact that she was mourning for a boy and then blocked with her entire team from the football semi-final game because of her.

While Mili's family believes she was outlawed because the officials thought she was a boy (and therefore are not allowed to play in a group of girls), Springfield Invitational tournament officials argue that the reason Mili and her team picked up were because Mili is a boy in the official list of their teams, says WOWT.

It is not clear how this error occurred. But even when Mili's father presented tournament officials with Mili's insurance card, which showed him to be a woman, the bronze tournament did not fall. Nebraska State Soccer League has since apologized to Milly and her family and the team is investigating what went wrong in the tournament.

While Mili seems to get confused in step, it is recognized that wrong sex can have a big impact on children, she says Health contributing to psychologist Gail Saltz, MD. "It could be very insulting and irritating, especially to a young man who may be insecure and who can try to fit it and make a stock of what someone else thinks about them," he says.

Dr Saltz believes that society is much more open to the liquidity of the sexes now, which may be due to the fact that history has caused such deception. "I think that for women and girls, the idea that" I would be strong and sporty enough and I'm going to be disappointed about it, "I think it's the heart of the troubled people," he said.

Fortunately, Mili received a support booster from female athletes, including Billy Jean King and the One-Ham invited Milly at TeamFirst Soccer Academy on Twitter. Abby Wambach has released a supporting video at Instagram.

"I want to tell you a few things," Olympic champion Wambach said in her post. "You do not look like a boy, you look like a short-haired girl, and that's okay, I know someone else who has short hair, won gold medals and a World Cup, and the American Footballer of the Year and FIFA Player of the You can do what you want to do and be anything you want and guess what? You can look like what you have to do to do it. "
