Can women compete with men at the professional level of sports?
March is Women's History Month, and we at The Tylt want to appreciate some of the greatest women to ever play sports. From being a part of some of the best plays ever to fighting for wage equality, women athletes have to overcome a lot of adversity and scrutinization to be successful in their respective sports. They deserve to be celebrated for the great athletes that they are.

It's time to stop treating women like they are children. Not only can they compete against men, they can win against men as well. Male egos are so fragile, they can't handle losing to women. But it's time to drop antiquated gender notions aside and let the most talented athletes compete against one another in sports. It's time to integrate women and men in sports.
There's a reason sports are separated by gender. Men are just designed to be physically stronger than women; biology creates an uneven playing field. That's not sexism. Those are facts. Not only would it be rare for a woman to be able to compete at an elite level with men, but it would be dangerous to put them in that situation. Here is Janelle Greer from Lehigh Valley Live with more:
It's plain and simple anatomy. Males are designed to be bigger and stronger and can therefore compete on an entirely different level than females. And that reason alone is enough to show why the two sexes should be on separate teams.
