At first I thought this was a ban on having Female Sumo Wrestlers

But there-again, where would Japan find the Women to become Female Sumo's ? They'd be instantly outdone by Russia, America and the UK who have an abundance of suitably qualified Women.

The comment is oddly worded. "Irrelevant" could mean that the ban should stay, but doesn't apply in cases of life-threatening situations. Or it could mean that the ban is silly. I hope the latter, but given the people that like sumo and attitudes about gender equality and women stepping into the ring, it's more likely the former. As for "prompting a review" by the JSA... hahaha!

Ditto. The truth is even more absurd.
