    EDIT: You don't even post your opinion. You just copy paste the news article.

    Yes, all sports have different divisions for men and women, but why? Because of how we are physically built differently, this has NOTHING to do with physical fitness, nor does it have to do with any sort of physical contact. Don't get me wrong, I have no interest in this and it'll just spur up more feminist bullshit, but you have to admit it seems a little random and unnecessary.

    Anyone who does not identify with feminism is against feminism, and therefore, a bad person.

    And how is making a male only heartstone competition discrimination and no female catholic priests completely fine, in the scope of the law?

    You think you really could sue your way in? Gimme a break.

    Do you really think a guy could sue some T&A mag into printing his pics on the basis that it's unfair if they only print girls?

    All that this sex discrimination thing amounts to in fact is 2 things:
    - Equal standing in front of the law
    - Some stuff in labor law, mainly about hiring and firing.

    Everything else:
    No one can force unisex toilets on you...

    Guys would win everything, if they could find a way into female sports competition.

    Is it retarded to have female and male split divisions in gaming competitions? Sure.
    I mean, I can't really think of a single reason why you'd have one, and especially not one that looks as arbitrary as the one from that article(I mean, why the hell is SF all guys, while Tekken all girls?).

    The only argument I can think of to rationalize the event set-up, would be something like the organizers not wanting uni-sex tournaments due to possible friction between the genders(not wanting a situation where sexual harassment is likely to happen etc.), and then picking what games to assign to which gender based on statistics of popularity of each game in relation to each respective gender.

    That being said, it seems like a pretty thoughtless move. Honestly, I'm just kinda nonplussed.
    Is it sexism though? Honestly, can't say. I don't like to throw the term around the way most people seem to do nowadays, and I certainly don't accept the definition used in "academical" feminist "theories", but it's quite possible that this situation is caused by backwards sexist attitudes.
    It could also just be regular stupidity.
    It might very well be that you have a bunch of idiots who really think "e-sports"(another term I hate) becomes more sports-like if you throw in gender divisions.

    Seriously though, this entire situation is just stupid. Just make everything uni-sex and be done with it.

    Thats because women and men are vastly different physically. A 300 lb American football player would knock a females head clean off her shoulders. It makes sense in physical sports. E-sports arent physical so this is bullshit. No reason to separate it.
