"I don't think women are real people, so what?" I don't think you're going to find an argument from anybody that men are better athletes than women based solely on biological differences due to testosterone, but you might find trouble arguing that women deserve less money regardless of which gender is a better athlete. Top tennis player Janko Tipsarevic has already voiced his opinions on whether women deserve equal prize money, and he thinks they don't. He believes that the women in tennis now just aren't good enough to justify them receiving a fair share of the prize money, so I'm sure some feminists will be mad about that.

To be honest I think he's somewhat right here. I think that men are better athletes overall but only because our bodies are built that way, we're already losing the battle in the IQ department. I don't think that means women deserve less money though, the winners are still at the top of their class. That would be like saying a lightweight boxer deserves less money than a heavyweight simply because he's smaller. I could also be saying this because when women take over the corporate world I don't want to be reduced to pushing papers for the rest of my life because of something I wrote on a website once.

TL;DR Janko Tipsarevic thinks that women deserve less prize money than men.
