    This bullshit has destroyed women's sports.

    I'm far from an expert on this, but men and women gymnasts compete in different events from each other. Not sure it's accurate to say that women are "better" than men.

    Makes me glad I've always expressed my competitive instincts in things which aren't subject to this nonsense.

    Most of the sniveling was over how money was distributed to various sports by schools and universities. 2nd rate college football coaches getting $7 million dollar salaries while womens' athletics programs get squat for supplies and travel.

    Women compete in four events. Men compete in six events.

    Women
    balance beam
    floor
    Vault
    uneven parallel bars

    Men
    rings
    floor
    parallel bars
    high bar
    vault
    Pommel horse

    The exercises are different, because men’s bodies and women’s bodies are different.

    You know they, for the most part, have different events, right?
