Moreover, competition is about rewarding those who are the best and who earn it through hard work and ability. Rewarding a guy for lacking those traits with more playing time defeats that notion.
All are created equal, some are just more equal than others?
Given that this has moved into the legal realm then it can't be that subjective. They are either allowed or they aren't. If they aren't, however, than how can that be defended based on the fact that women can choose to play in either group? Personally I think the judge made a very improper decision when you look at the grand scheme of things.
Edit: Don't mean to hammer you on this, obviously some other poster's have echoed the same sentiments.
