When I grew up we had very strict “rules” as to what were “boy games” and “girl games.”
Stickball was definitely a “boy game.”
Jumping rope was definitely a “girl game.” (It never occurred to us boys that boxers jumped rope for a workout – but then they didn’t do it to girl-oriented rhymes).
However, there were a number of games that were coed and for these, generally speaking, the more kids involved the better the games were. It didn’t matter if some were boy-kids and others were girl-kids.
We figured out how to coexist.
