I saw a link to this study in a discussion about running in a diffferent forum. The study basically shows that the levels of "competitiveness" between women and men are not equal and that pre-disposition towards competitive activities may be higher in men. I think many of us opposed to the Title IX quotas belive men, as a group, are more interested in athletics than women, as a group, but don't sy so because we are afraid of being labeled as sexist.
