I'm totally on board with this, and I've said as much before.

It's cool that you strive not to treat women any differently than men in your everyday life, Steve, so say we all. That said, this thread is about the difficult policy choices which must be made in order to maintain, reform, or eliminate existing sex- and/or gender-segregated leagues/institutions/public spaces. It's not enough just to say, hey not my problem. Or rather, it is exactly enough to say that if you don't really hope to address any of the difficult issues which we've been addressing in this thread.
