I have two dogs. Suzie-Q is a mix lab and Chinese Sharpe. Misty is some kind of hunting dog, I guess. Both are rescues but they don’t know it. They both figure they are part of the family.
They have something of a sense of fairness. When I give one a treat, the other one knows she is going to get one too. If I walk one, the other expects she will have her chance as well. If I pet one, the other comes over and reminds me that she needs attention too. I had to buy each of them a bed. If I hadn’t you can imagine what that would be like.
The point is, they both know that fair is fair. That appears to be more than some people know. Expecting men and women to compete against each other in most sports events is just wrong. Then again maybe I am the one who is wrong. Maybe these people know it isn’t fair. In fact, I think they do. Certainly, if a dog understands fairness, certainly people who have letters following their name know something of fairness.
It sort makes things worse; doesn’t it?

What makes sense is actually talking about what you meant to talk about instead of spending all your energy on a questionable analogy.
Does this mean you think it is fair for men to compete against women? Does this mean you don’t think dogs know fair. Maybe you just don’t like dogs. You might just say what you mean, but keep it clean. please. I put up with a lot in the Marines but I shouldn’t have to anymore.
