I have a question. Chess is a mental game. It doesn’t require any physical activity. Why are there separate male and female categories?
There is no significant physical component to chess, just have one competition open to everyone… That’s true equality.
I invite you to start the “why are there men’s and women’s categories in chess if it’s not a contact sport?” scratchfight here.
I don’t know the answer, I just want to see all the attempts to answer.
