6. There is no fairness about high school sports.
Mind you, I'd love to see football and all other high school sports programs shut down completely, and have the football players taught numbers, colors and how to read.

But as long as we have to let the Neanderthals be treated like they were real human beings, we should allow females to participate equally in sports. But girls' sports don't make money. (The WNBA had lots of 1/3 full arenas, most of them lesbians, which weren't enough of a market to make the big bucks.)

It's not specifically sexism - that is, the opposition isn't completely sexist. It's who makes the freaking money for the franchise owners.
