We live in a world where the feminists are going so crazy about equal rights that I think we give them what they've asked for, lets stop separating women and men in sporting events. Just have one Olympic ski jump event - whoever qualifies, qualifies, whoever doesn't, doesn't.

Requirements for qualification would be equal.

In colleges and high school there will be one basketball team, one football team, one soccer team, one swimming team. The best players make the team, man or woman. We wont discriminate.

Silly comment, Chris B. I'm all for separate competitions in the same sport for women vs. men. Women are, of course, designed and built differently from men. If they are going to compete in a sport, it should be against other women.

Whether women competing in a sport captures the imagination of the sports fan is, of course, another matter. For me, some women's sports are an absolute yawner. The WNBA for example. Snoozefest.
