because of the mixed requirement, which is good for our sport,

OK.... it starts up again... lets try and not rewrite history. WHY good for our sport?

Pt....Nobody else has mixed teams.
Pt... Nobody creates ultimately competitive sports that are mixed.
PT ... When is the last time you saw mixed doubles tennis on the international stage... Its a country club sport/pastime.

MIXED XXX is a social/political solution... not a competitive solution. In fact you highlight the problem... Not that many woman seem to be all that interested in competing in a MIXED competition.

So... why again is MiXED good for the sport?
