Thus, for example, the regulation height of the basket in basketball was chosen with the range of male heights in mind. In a gender-free society, a committee charged with setting the height of the basket perhaps might consider the possibilities of lowering the basket so that more players of both sexes could dunk the ball or raising it so that no one could do so.
