shame they probably won't be able to dope too much without interfering with the hormone therapy so they'll probably be at a massive disadvantage

A decision that affects like .0000001% of people (A. being trans and B. being a fucking Olympic athlete) will make 100% of dummies mad



we have talked a lot about a trans Olympian this past year

Yeah I remember a story about some female amateur wrestler or maybe she was a UFC fighter and she was saying that when she fought against a transgender competitor there was a huge difference in the (man) strength she exhibited from all other female competitors.

I think its unfair for the female competitors, and its unfair for the transgender athletes who may not get a chance to compete. It should come down to physiology, i.e. if they identify as female but holy shit they're built more like a man then compete against men you shall.

However its also unfair for men too. What if its a marathon and you've got a tranny with a hot butt in front of you, they might not overtake them just to stare at butt.

I fear there'd be a performance disadvantage for cis-gendered women. Does it also work both ways, and can FtM's do male sports?

Without a source to cite, it's only a postulation tho.

Otherwise, who really gives a toss.

yeah, but at the end of the day isn't physical competition inherently unfair anyways? Like, yeah men are naturally more muscular than women, but some men are naturally more muscular, faster, etc than other men, too, but nobody gives a shit.

I don't get why people still care about the Olympics anyway.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Yeah Fallon Fox might be the person I was reading about where some chicks fought her and really noticed a difference between her and every other fighter.

Certainly is something new. We will just have to roll with it and see how it goes.
It can't be that bad, I hope..

This is something that has 0 effect on me or anyone I know, so it's safe to say I don't give a shit.

Surely it should be done biologically. If mentally you identify as a woman but biologically you're a man, you should be competing with men.

It's not like a F1 driver can take his car to the Moto GP and say 'yeah but I identify as a motorcyclist so it's cool'.

I don't care if I'm being 'ignorant' on this to be honest, if you've been born into the wrong body and want to change that, brilliant, but until you get that body, you compete with the one you're given against similar ones.

Obviously there's been a couple of cases where female athletes have been subject to gender tests and cases could have been made for either gender due to unique physiology and hormone levels, which complicates things. But really on the face of it this issue seems ridiculous.

grow up as man, be 7 feet tall, 250 lbs muscle then take some hormone treatment and compete with filthy cis-gendered women.

Break world record at each competition by very small margins and harvest that sponsor money.

Fuck it, there should be no separation based on gender, and all athletes should take all the performance enhancing drugs.

Then it might even be worth watching.
