"Men do have advantages over women sport - but that has largely to do with the inequitable amount of investment in women's sport rather than male physiology."
How peculiar. The advantages men have over women in most sports have nothing to do with the higher muscle mass to body weight ratio, larger and longer bones, bigger lung capacity, and stronger hand grip, to list but a few physiological differences. No, according to the individual who spoke these words, the issue is not physiology, but discriminatory funding practices.
By this line of reasoning, women would perform at the same level as men if funding were less discriminatory and more equitable. In other words, the reality is women and men are physiologically equal, but this reality has not been allowed to manifest because of inequitable funding. Invest a gazillion dollars and five or ten years into a women's soccer team, and those female soccer players will be capable of giving Real Madrid a run for its money - guaranteed.
The imbecile who uttered the sentence above should be cause for alarm, yet we have reached the stage where our enlightened society no longer sees people who make such outlandish declarations as imbeciles, but rather as wise sages whose astute perception of reality helps us better understand ourselves and the world around us.
Our universities, corporations, and governments overflow with such people - people who espouse, support, fund, and forcibly implement policies based on the same principle expressed above. It is happening in education, entertainment, art, employment, government, and every other aspect of society. The people who push this funding myth do so because they wholeheartedly believe inequalities do not exist. For them Reality and its innate inequalities are human constructs. Since Reality is a human construct, humans can reconstruct it to fit whatever image they choose. The inequalities we see and experience are purely the result of discrimination, oppression, and prejudice. Nothing else. Full stop. End of story.
Our enlightened rulers and their ilk will not stop until their reality has completely eclipsed and supplanted Reality. Of course, their reality might not actually supplant Reality in any real sense, but the elite will safeguard their reality against anyone who dares to contradict it. The elite's version of reality will succeed well into the foreseeable future because it is already succeeding now. It is succeeding because very few us openly oppose it or want it to fail. Most people have no reason to oppose anything these days - they have given up Reality themselves.
The day will come when Reality reasserts itself, the way Reality tends to do, but if history is any guide, this could a take half-century or more to come to fruition. In the meantime, the chaos and stupidity will only intensify.
