“Suppose both I and Serena Williams have been playing tennis for the last 30 years. We’ve both worked equally hard. I’m a little better at tennis than her, but neither of us is cut out to be able to compete with Roger Federer.

How is it fair, in those circumstances that Serena Williams gets to win Grand Slams and make many millions of dollars, but I don’t? Isn’t that unfair discrimination?”

The questions are the bits with the question marks at the end of them.

i.e.

Question 1: How is it fair, in those circumstances, that Serena Williams gets to win Grand Slams and make many millions of dollars, but I don’t?

Question 2: Isn’t that unfair discrimination?

I also wrote:

“I hope you’re not suggesting that it’s morally OK to discriminate, so long as that’s what the market wants.”

Let me turn that into a direct question for you:

Question 3: Do you think it’s morally OK to discriminate, so long as that’s what the market wants?

Those are the questions. Please try to actually answer them.
