I was watching TV the other day and it happened to be the women's pool competition.
And I was confused.
I know they separate the males from the females in sports. Let's be real. Men and women have different skills and strength levels. There's no way an adult male and an adult female could compete fairly in many athletic events.
Let's use swimming. Women typically are faster than men as children until puberty hits and then men get faster. How do I know this? I swam for 8 years, my brother swims, my boyfriend swims... I spend a lot of time at the pool haha.
So I get the different competitions (men's golf, women's golf, women's MMA, men's MMA, etc.) but pool?
There's like... NO athletic skill/strength involved.
I don't mean to discredit pool players. There is no doubt that there's logic involved and strategy involved... but no excessive strength. It's not like the men would have an advantage because they're stronger.
So... why aren't the competitions co-ed?

Man are taller are stronger and intelligent with enhanced capabilities of bearing stress, they have strong mentality, while women are weak feeble and they can't bear stress and deficiency of honor makes condition even worse and I am not just saying it Science proves it. There is no mombo-gombo reason behind it, they are genetically created in this way and HEY you chick Why are comparing your self with ordinary man while you are master at swimming, compare with one of your experience and I bet you will lose, reason (1000-1500 less RBCS count, less O2 carrying capacity with lack of androgens to built muscle mass and ATP deficiency) its simple.0

Strength does come into play on the break but other than that you are correct. I think it comes down to the numbers. More men play than women and since typically more men began playing earlier on than women there is a greater pool of talent among men so it makes sense that they batte it out for who's best as will the pool the women. That or locker room awkwardness.0
