It's tough to put one's finger on the malignant result in a business using incentives to involve women in a hobby to which they might otherwise not be drawn.

If you've thought it through to your own satisfaction, what do you think is the malignant result in a business using incentives to involve women in a hobby to which they might otherwise not be drawn?

Let's think this one through. If a significant component of your intelligence is inherited, it doesn't matter that you would prefer to get a very high score. You will lack the ability.

The point it goes to is that we consider reasonable discrimination, judgments made with reference to traits that matter, entirely acceptable. That may shed light on the issue of why we consider some specific sorts of discrimination unacceptable, but that doesn't appear to be the direct issue involved in this case.
