    This seems to be a fair "common sense" definition. Consider the case of
    two athletes...Male Athlete X and Female Athlete Y. Male Athlete X has the
    right to have his sport eliminated to meet a proportionality quota; whereas
    Female Athlete Y has the right not to have her sport eliminated for any
    reason whatsoever. Would Female Athlete Y be willing to make that switch?
    If not, then by your own definition "equity" does not exist.


    In response to:
    >The best "common sense" definition I've heard goes something like this:
    Gender equity exists when male athletes
    >would be willing to trade their benefits with those of female athletes
    (and vice versa) and still feel that they
    >are being treated equitably.
