Exactly the point I have been trying to make for quite some time, but
few people here know Susan's history.

Susan fought for years against exactly the sort of gender distinction
she is trying to make here. Susan fought against Girls Tournaments,
against Woman's Tournaments, against Girls Training Programs, against
Woman's Chess Olympiad Training Programs.

Susan fought against all the programs the Hungarian Chess Federation
was instituting to benefit women's chess.

Now, the shoe is on the other foot. Susan is trying to institute and
indeed impose on women's chess here the very same programs she fought
against when she was in Hungary.
