So what is the purpose of noontime sports??? To win, of course.

Back to the male/female dicotomy.

Just an anecdote on the differences between proponents of equity in
education for girls and boys (perhaps this is why the "reasonable woman"
standard was accepted by U.S. courts):
An educator was discussing gender equity at a conference. He said he
had alternated between girls and boys as captains of the noon-time
basketball games he was encouraging. The boys, he said approvingly,
picked the best players to be on their teams. But the girls, alas,
tended to pick their friends.
So what do you see in this anecdote?
