Unrealistic equality

The Olympics Minister has called for "equality in the number of sports" saying it isn't fair that women can't take part in sports like heavyweight wrestling and boxing, and men synchronised swimming and rhythmic gymnastics.

The real point is that these ministers are clearly trying to pursue outdated feminism in a way that is so detached from reality. How many women box? How many men do synchronised swimming? That's the whole point. These sports are partaken by a certain sex, and not by the other. That's reality, that's life, and the Olympics shouldn't be forced to change because of it.
