Title IX - nearly a half century of "affirmative action" in sports

This silly-ass PC law requires universities to fund women's sports equally with men's.  As a result, between 1981 and 1999 university athletic departments cut 171 men's wrestling teams, 84 men's tennis teams, 56 men's gymnastics teams, 27 men's track teams, and 25 men's swimming teams.

Put aside for a moment that I don't think sports is a legitimate enterprise for universities.

Sports had been one of the last bastions of meritocracy.  Title IX changed it to having the right sex organs.  It's as silly as if universities set up a separate basketball league for white guys.

How much further can society be organized around giving benefits based on (non-white/non-male) identity instead of merit, without irreparable harm?
