Yes the difference in ability effects societies outlook/view on the sport..

or would you argue against that? It boils down to interest 100 out of 100 times, in most cases, skill plays a part in that, there are exceptions, you clearly mentioned one in Figure Skating... but people tend to pay way more attention to women in that sport. Most people aren't interested in watching single A baseball... but they'll watch MLB. should these single A ball players be making the same as the MLB players? I mean it's the same job by this board's logic.

I never said that if women don't play with men that they shouldn't be paid equally, I said it's not the same game because they aren't playing on the same field, if they were you couldn't argue that it's a different game. So attempting to compare it as an apples to apples situation is absurd.That's a fact. If they generated the same revenues they should be paid equally.... Why is having that opinion a problem?

You also said "they should be paid equally at the nat team level, if the revenues justify it. " well the revenues aren't justifying it but here you are....
