CULVER CITY, CA—Trans woman Amy Schneider broke a winnings record on
Jeopardy last week, earning more than any female contestant in the
show's history. Experts say this proves once and for all that men
really are smarter than women.

"As a biological male, Schneider is once again proving the vast
superiority of the male intellect," said MIT researcher Dr. Yamblo
Figlenstrogg. "For better or for worse, this will be a huge boost for
sexists and transphobes everywhere!"

Audience members were reportedly in awe to find that Schneider's dress
and pretty hair did not negatively affect the functioning of her
brilliant male brain.

"It was so inspiring to see!" said one witness. "Amy Schneider is
shattering the glass ceiling for trans people everywhere, while at the
same time installing a new, impenetrable, bulletproof glass ceiling
for biological women that will never, ever be shattered. Take that,
women!"

Unfortunately, Schnieder's Jeopardy streak was tragically cut short
after being completely stumped by tonight's "3rd Grade Biology"
category.

Check your male privilege.

You might not be so indifferent if you were a woman who's watching one
female achievement after another erased in favor of men wearing dresses.

Gender assignment is a distinction that Nature herself often blurs.
For all definitions of 'often' that mean the exact opposite of it's
commonly-accepted meaning, sure.

Nature sometimes produces individuals with two heads, too. That doesn't
mean it's not a birth defect and all the rest of us have to pretend it's a
perfectly normal mode of existence.
And records of all kinds have become a matter of marketing (and consumption
of Guinness ale). The market will sort it out ...yes, possibly starting
with the public's lack of enthusiasm for bio-engineered achievements.
In the meantime, we can rest assured that the smartest woman to ever play
JEOPARDY! is a man.

Often enough that the line is blurrier than, say, odd numbers vs. even.

All of us have birth "defects", which makes that completely "normal".

Not until that appears as a JEOPARDY! question.

Nope. A two-headed baby is not normal. Play word games all you want, but
that won't change. Neither does putting the word 'defects' in quotes
somehow mean everyone is born with clinical defects.

The point is that the gender-bifurcation of sports, though of
longstanding tradition, is fundamentally an arbitrary one. (...and not
always the best handicapper. E.g., in the high-jump, every Watusi woman
will beat every Pygmy man.) Although it arguably nets society a few
benefits, it has no status as some God-sponsored leveler of "fairness".

Hardly arbitrary. It's done to give women the opportunity to achieve honors
and make careers out of sports like men do.

If there were no men's and women's divisions in tennis, no woman would ever
win Wimbledon:

1998 Australian Open between Karsten Braasch and the top-ranked Williams
sisters. Venus and Serena Williams had claimed that they could beat any
male player ranked outside the world's top 200, so Braasch, then ranked
203rd, challenged them both. Braasch was described by one journalist as "a
man whose training regime centered around a pack of cigarettes and more
than a couple of bottles of ice cold lager". The matches took place on
court number 12 in Melbourne Park, after Braasch had finished a round of
golf and two shandies. He first took on Serena and after leading 5–0, beat
her 6–1. Venus then walked on court and again Braasch was victorious, this
time winning 6–2. Braasch said afterwards, "anyone 500 and above, they have
no chance". He added that he had played like someone ranked 600th in order
to keep the game "fun".

And the celebrated Olympic gold medal winning U.S. women's soccer team were
beaten handily by a high school boy's soccer team in an exhibition match.

Take the men/women separation away and say goodbye to any more gold medals
for women from here on out.

Put the very best female basketball team up against the lowest ranked male
basketball team and watch the women lose every time.

need to broaden your perspective. The aim is to expand the
sports-entertainment industry ...and women-only competitions are merely
a convenient, marketable way to do it. Some other even more "natural"
stratifications have been less successful:

Note that even the Williams sisters tacitly acknowledged that they stood no
chance playing equally-ranked male players when they limited their
challenge to only those male players ranked 201 and lower. The top 200 male
players would wipe the court with them and they knew it.

For anyone who doesn't recognize satire...

It's important to remember that it's been said, at least, that men tend to be either super-smart or super-dumb, while women tend to be in the middle. Which, they, say, is why we still don't have a female Einstein.

(But we DID have a female Mozart - his sister. IIRC, her father wouldn't let her develop her genuine musical talent with further education - because she was a girl.)
