Snapshot: Examining the UCI's Changes to World Cup DH Racing
@hamncheez: I must have misread this article to have missed where this is at all related to affirmative action.

@laurenjenkins: You're right, and I do think it's interesting to read Atherton's and Miller's reasons for supporting the changes, even if I do think they're just burning straw men. I took issue with the article and your first comment because I don't think this satisfactorily ends the discussion. In the end, it's not good enough that the women themselves (who seemingly 50% of didn't actually support this) don't seem to have a decision in this at all even though they're the ones most affected. Even worse is that several of the reasons given by the men interviewed, and nearly everyone in the comments are tired and offensive. And that's my opinion - a guy who this doesn't affect in any way.

@laurenjenkins: And I'm not lost to the fact that half of the women interviewed here actually view this as a good change.

@laurenjenkins: Yet that doesn't change my point. What moron thinks that Tony Seagrave's rant about the extra five riders being boring, or Claudio's irrelevant thoughts on how socio-economic factors always keep things from being "fair" is a way to address what kind of message this sends to women in the sport?

@CaptainSnappy: I'm sure it also included some of his buddies who said the same thing.

@humoroususername: How convenient that all those pernicious ideas of feminists, socialists, and pretty much all women in general can be fixed by going from 20 riders to 15.
