Twolf22: One team for all?

AvatarOn the Girl challenges football ban thread, Twolf22 posts:

According to the law of the land, everyone is equal. We are all just biological beings. We are supposed to be gender blind, color blind, etc...The easy solution to this issue is to have one team. One football team, one basketball team, one volleyball team, etc...
Everyone has and OPPORTUNITY to try out for the team. The best people will make the team. Because the reality is that most coaches are retained based on wins and losses, that coach is going to select the best people, regardless of gender.
If girls can play "boys" sports, then boys should be permitted to play "girls" sports. It is hypocritical to do anything else. Either we are all equal, or we are different. Too many times, in most cases, women want to have their cake and eat it too. When it suits them, you hear: we are just as good; we can do the same, if not better than men,etc... But, when it suits them, they claim that they need separate situations and funding.
Well, we are either all equal, or we are not.
