If women are "equal" athletes as men, why do they get a closer 3 point line and smaller basketball?

A lot easier for a smaller ball to go through the hoop.

Maybe they are not "equal?"

Did anyone actually say they're equal? Especially in basketball, where size makes a fair amount of difference.

My son used to play high school and travel hockey. In 10th grade there was a girl on his team that a year later made the US Olympic Women's Hockey Team. I saw her play many times. Against average high school boys she did not stand out at all with respect to hockey sense or ability but she did hustle a bit more than some of them.

Several years ago the US Women's National Soccer Team scrimmaged the US Boys Under 17 Soccer Team and lost 8-2.

In 2017, the US Women's National Soccer Team lost to a 15 and under US boys team.

Moral to the story: The BEST female athletes in the world possess skill levels equal to that of average or slightly above average high school aged boys. They are only above average athletes when compared against other women.

Do small/weak men get to use the closer tee offs? No, so in what way are women "equal" in sports?

We don't have to "prove" women are inferior athletes. nature has already done it for us. We are all equal before our creator. Equality ends there. From that point on every single person is unique and different. Someone is going to be superior and inferior in all things. Attempting to squelch that simple natural order by imposing an arbitrarily- defined method of "equality" is an assault on all human liberty.

maybe they should put different hoops up for womenz so the correlation is the same .. good point. why if all other things are resized, did the hoop get over looked? pretty sure the female athletes had nothing to do with it as all athletes are puppets anyhow for the elite to be entertained by.

It's all bullshit. I have no doubt at all that equal pay for equal work would result in the vast majority of women receiving a pay cut--a big one.

I do love women. Those that pretend the sexes are equal hate women--even if they are a woman.
