That’s why I said oh boy, no matter the logic behind your statement I knew it wasn’t gonna be received well.

If you’d said she’d be good in the NBA you’d probably be wrong. If you’d said she’d be bad, you’d be perceived as sexist. There was no way to win here.

I know I know. I’m not sexist at all. Just being honest. But I get it.

The first step in being the best anti-sexist that you can be is to accept that you are, in fact, sexist. We all are to some degree, no way we could grow up in a sexist society without absorbing some of it

I mean saying that genetics is why MBB is “more fun to watch” is just wrong, whether or not something’s fun to someone is mostly due to personal taste and social influences

But I think the overarching reason is just adding stuff that was completely unnecessary to add, like “over half the population is women but no one watches the WNBA!” makes it seem like you wanted to talk about women being weaker than men more than actually answering the question that was asked

I can see your point. Wasn’t my intention I promise.I was just honestly responding to a previous comment

No can dunk, but good fundamentals. That more fun to watch.

The WNBA has some amazing shooters, including possibly the best free throw shooter in the world (among men or women).

But anyone who thinks a WNBA player could make the NBA simply does not understand basketball.
