That seems like a fair reading of Genesis 3:21. Does PETA have a response to the gentleman?
[R]oughly two dozen boys competing on girls teams in Massachusetts because their schools do not have boys swimming programs. They are able to do so because of the open access amendment to the state constitution, which was voted into law in the 1970s and mandates that boys and girls must be afforded equal access to athletics....
With every stroke they take, the boys are displacing more than water. They could knock girls off the awards podium and make it harder for girls to qualify for All-Star honors and the postseason.There's a fairly easy solution to this, which is to honor Title IX by simply including women in all sports. Of course, almost none of them will be able to compete in "soccer" or "swimming," as opposed to "women's soccer" or "girl's swimming."
A few will, and good for them. It turns out that top part-of-one-percent are the ones who really get things done anyway:
The remarkable finding of their study is that, compared with the participants who were “only” in the 99.1 percentile for intellectual ability at age 12, those who were in the 99.9 percentile — the profoundly gifted — were between three and five times more likely to go on to earn a doctorate, secure a patent, publish an article in a scientific journal or publish a literary work. A high level of intellectual ability gives you an enormous real-world advantage.If that's where all human progress is, we need to rethink our approach to education, and how we train our children for life. If you're not in the top half-percent, you might as well take up Zen gardening: it's a surer way to achieve internal peace. Accept your limits: let go.
