I never understood why “gender diversity” would even matter in a professional sports league where 100% of the participants are men.
Is there anyplace where a man can be a man anymore?
Why does a men’s baseball league have to hire women?
I guess these clowns can’t spell the word âmeritocracyâ.If âminoritiesâ can dominate the playersâ rosters of MLB,the NBA and the NFL through merit why can’t they do the same in the front offices.Or would that take too much effort?

High grade ???? Bull $hit !!! Whites don't have a chance against the Cubans and blacks.
Whites should sue MLB and NBA just like blacks sue city fire departments, for discrimination and loss of income.
I am pretty sure the “Curves” fitness franchise would fail the gender-equity hiring test.
Why aren’t there any girl baseball players? If they want gender integration and all that, we will have to see sports have both men and women on the field, and on the court.
Why are women okay with having separate but equal sports in the first place?
Well, I’ve always wondered why there aren’t any female umpires, or why some woman hasn’t sued on the basis of sex discrimination. Not that it’s a good idea, but I could see some advantages. If there were ever an argument over a call, I would expect tears followed by “You don’t appreciate how hard I work, etc & etc” .... you know the rest.
And yes, there have been - and are - women officials in the NBA.
