This type of issue is something I've thought about for a while, actually ever since women have been trying to qualify for mens golf tournaments. For example, Michelle Wie, I do not believe she should be given the right to play in all those mens tournaments she has been playing. She has not proven to play to the caliber required in order to compete in a mens event. Now I do however feel if a woman goes through qualifying, she deserves the right to play. If a man is not good enough to play on the PGA Tour, but yet is good enough to play on the womans tour, should he be allowed to play? That is what I struggle with! What do you do about a woman who was once a man and wants to play on the womans golf tour?
As far as your question, I believe if a woman is physically capable to compete and play against the men there should be nothing stopping her. But what is there for a man to do in the reverse situation? You bring up a good point with the volleyball issue. Men technically get screwed in this situation and I know people will say for years men received all the benenfits and had all the sports, I agree, but times have changed. The other problem faced for the girls is handling all the jerks out there who can't handle it and for the guys to handle the ridicule of playing a "girls" sport.
