Isn't it about time lose to a girl

That some elite sports are divided by gender is fair enough given the physiological differences that exist. However, there shouldn't be a problem with chess because it is a mind game. Yet the game is divided into male and female chess; the only girl to ever reach the exalted heights of male chess is Judit Polgar.
The "Gormallygate" incident has even inspired pure political blog to write about gender issues in chess.

I would like to add a quote from the WCN chat room
Lao- Tzu (USA) says: the average wcn player would rather listen to one of Luiz's quiet metaphor explorations than lose to a girl
