The real purpose of Title IX was not to foster woman’s sports, but to prevent men from playing sports. Why else would they come up with such a procrustean solution of forcing men’s teams to disband if there were not enough women to compete in athletics? With that battle almost won, they can now go onto destroying science and math programs because there are not an equal number of women taking those courses.

When I read the phrase “gender equality” I thought that, for a five member team sport, two won’t go into five equally.
