      Do you think the antelope is equal to the lion?  In nature there is predator, and prey.  Inequality is very much natural.  Humans have to work to create artificial equality, its a mark of civilization.

      But on a college campus, in any given year, are the numbers of men and women who want to be athletes going to be exactly equal?  And if that rare balance is achieved, but then a woman decides to go out for volleyball, does she have to find a man to join a sport along with her, to preserve that balance?

      Or are the numbers of men and women excercizing their free will allowed to not be exactly, precisely equal?
