Its not sexist, its logical. The gap between men and womens skiing is huge, would you, as a girl, rather compete agaisnt people like PK Hunder who can throw huge dub cork 12s or someone who is at about the same skill level as you? And a handicap is just stupid, why should someone throwing a 5 stand an equal chance agaisnt someone who has spent the time to learn something like a double flip/cork etc. Like someone else mentioned, it would also pretty much halt all progression in womens skiing if girls are given a handicap, they would no longer have to try and close the gap between the two genders, it would be given to them.
Does anyone else wonder why issues like this come up, but noone cares if a ladies only gym is opened?
So you want to combine the men and women to eliminate the "sexism" that is caused by segregating them, but then you want to give the women a handicap? Those two things directly contradict each other.
At least we arent a bunch of morons. Girls competing against guys? That is by far the stupidest thing I have ever heard. There are guys that are by far better than the BEST pro girls that are barely sponsored, not sponsored, and arent even considering sponsorship. Why would THalls double flip in the pipe or a dumont 12 or a olenick whiskey flip be taken down by a no grab 9? THAT IS DOWN SYNDROME! THINK BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH! GO MAKE SOME COOKIES!
i really dont think that hole idea would work AT ALL.
