Please Don’t Tell Dvorkovich!
The rules are simple! When it is your move you have to hold your breath until you actually make a move. When your move is completed, then you can breath, while the opponent must then hold his breath until he completes his move. And so on.
Victory goes to the player who, of course, delivers mate first. Just like in classic chess! The best thing of all, you don’t need to use chess clocks!
- If any player ‘illegally’ breaths while he is on the move, the arbiter will automatically award the game to his opponent.
- If any player passes out in the course of play, he automatically loses.
- If both players fall unconscious during play, the game is declared a stalemate!

In particular: does something sexist all of a sudden become non-sexist just because there exists a money-making angle associated with it? If that were the case, then our world would not have any sexism at all. But it does…and LOTS of it. (And lots of money being made because of sexism!)
So, as far as this tumblr rationalization goes…
