The fact that our male / female participation ratio is much lower than even

That isn't evidence at all.  All that demonstrates is that males and
females have fundamentally different interests.

Of course, the men-should-have-tits-and-give-birth crowd has dedicated
themselves to denying this for the past 50 years.

Just because it doesn't say "no wheelchairs" at the door, doesn't mean those
stairs aren't going to be a pain in the arse to get up.

preventing the wheel-chaired person from getting onto the basketball

playing basketball with normal people doesn't mean that the gymnasium is
discriminating against them.
