Is it possible transgendered people could ruin women's sports? I'm imagining a person with female genitalia but a man's physique totally dominating the normal female competition. Is this possible?
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Sickening to think this has been allowed.

I second that. You should have to prove beyond a SHADOW of a doubt that you are 100% female before you get to compete against them. Hormones and transgender sh1t should be comparable to peds

Agreed.

I haven't thought about or looked into this issue much. Perhaps there can be some way to test hormone levels, and if a transgendered person is taking enough hormones so that their testosterone production is low (basically giving them the same hormonal makeup as a woman) then it might be okay...? Then again there are other physical advantages I suppose, such as height and bone density or muscular strength. I suppose that as much as the social liberal in me wants to make a case for the "unfairness" against trans people here, the reality is that sports is not at all about what's "fair" and very much about letting results speak for themselves. Though I suppose it is indeed a tricky issue that has to invite some social speculation, hmm.

I think "fairness" crosses the line when another gender is severely disadvantaged by biological makeup.
