It's cases like these where it's acceptable to stand up against your parents. I know that people around you agree, and look at these comments. Don't quit. Be yourself OP.

Use your strength to kick them both in the shins

They don't want you to seize control of the house

Ha! That made me laugh.

You should join an academic team, and once when they get all happy you quit

What?! women in sports and now academics?! What is the world coming to? That's just crazy talk.

Competitive homemaking!

Sadly if the OP is under 18 it won't be up to them. The school will force you off a team at the parents behest without consideration for how you feel about it.

@59 I thought they could only do that if the kid had bad grades.

Nope, most districts require parental consent to continue. Parents withdraw consent you can't play. I was in a play once that had to recast the female lead last minute because her parents objected to her playing that character.

While I agree somewhat, if Op's parents are the ones financially responsible for her sports gear, she really had no control of it.

Fit is attractive. Haven't they seen any women sports... Ever?

and you know, we should be forwarding the sexism here by saying 'its OK if it makes her more appealing for men to fap to'

yea the girls Who play sports are way hotter than most girls at my high school

Sorry op they suck!

Wow your parents are real assholes... Stand up for yourself and explain that you love this sport and they'll hopefully understand

Another classic parenting fail.

Make them watch bend it like beckham

Sadly, they'll just relate to the Bhamras.

That's bull... Being a student athlete better prepares you for life... I made my life long friends through sports and became a better leader and teammate. It teaches grace, tenacity, dignity, sportsmanship, and work ethic.
