Chess is a game one either falls in love with or takes no interest in. I have never been a great player but since taking it up in the military I greatly enjoyed playing it. You can't make someone like chess anymore than you can make someone like baskeball or soccer. The same applies to those who want to force women into playing in equal numbers as men. Nothing more than politically correct claptrap.
If you like playing chess do so and don't worry about everyone else.
