Should girl athletes get the same amount of respect as male athletes?

Could you say they do the same thing as male? Plus it depends a lot of which sport are we talking about.

"Should Females earn the same as Males in sports"
This is a good question. At first glance, someone would say "Yes", but if we look at it closer, we will realize that their is much more at play than basic equality.
The First thing we must examine, is our system in itself. The U.S., and most other European countries operate in a Free-market system, allowing employers some jurisdiction in what any athlete earns. The argument states above is not just a question of equality, but one that violates an employer's freedom, and Violating our very own Free-market economy. Forcing employers to pay Female athletes a set amount is "Socialism", which can be accurately described as communist Ideals inside a Democratic Government.
The next thing we must examine, is the physical differences between men and women. Men have 50% more muscle mass, Thicker bones,a taller frame, and thicker skin. If we want to be completely fair, Women must play as hard, or as good as men. The odds of a Woman beating a Male in a physical sport is highly unlikely, as women were not designed for strenuous activity. However, if Women were to be paid equally, they would have to join Male leagues, train two times harder than males, and run two times faster. If this scenario were to play out, many Women would be forced out of the league due to too much stress, and Women would be injured very often.
By supporting equal payment of Women and men in Professional athletics, you are failing to understand the differences between Men and Women, and you are basing your arguments off communist ideals.
