Yes, she will compete against boys at a disadvantage by her own choice.
Totally different situation that the cycling story.

They must feel the same as all the people that lost to lance Armstrong right.

Just seems like there are plenty of social issues to get involved in. Just don't get why people choose this. But I don't have to understand


So you don't have a problem with a woman born a man fighting in Mma or boxing?

Well people can stop watching the sport, going to races/games and any other support. The problem is that this thing has the same attraction as watching a car wreck. Maybe that is the reason these sports are allowing these things. It brings free advertising and publicity.

So in a scenario where I was competing
With your daughter and I was besting
Her all the time, would you or wouldn't
Be okay with that?

Just to add I hope I'm not misunderstanding
You, seems your input may be a little vague.

It is worth noting that there is a large variation in the amount of total testosterone in average healthy males. It can range between 300-1000 ng/dL. The average is roughly 600 ng/dL.

Females transitioning to males through hormone therapy can find the highest amount of testosterone that their bodies will tolerate (if you go too high in a biologically female body, the body starts converting testosterone into estrogen) and boast a higher amount of testosterone than most biological males achieve.

It is essentially a legal way to dope for competitions. I am not claiming that this is the reason people transition, mind you, just pointing out that it is a loophole and biological females could potentially outdo most biological males with enough testosterone.

I suggest that if people are truly serious about transitioning, they would be willing to forego competitions until more data can be collected and we can fully understand the ramifications of hormone therapy on physical aptitude and what to do about it.

This goes much farther than testosterone levels.
Males muscular structures are much more robust than females making the physically stronger and giving them more endurance.

Testosterone is directly related to skeletal muscle structure. Trans females take testosterone blockers, as well as estrogen supplementation. So, in essence, they aren’t “doping” to get stronger; they are “doping” to get weaker.

If I'm reading it right and it is girl to boy transgender then no I do not think s/he should be allowed to fight the males for the simple reason that no matter how much you pump into the trans woman to male they will never have a truly equal standing point against a male. Men and Women as I'm sure most know are built differently right down to the DNA and I do not think that men should be going into the womens sports and nor should the women be going into the mens.

And there are males that no matter how much they work out and train, they won’t ever win against some other males. So what? Don’t let them try to compete? There is no reason not to let a trans male compete against other males. If you compete and lose, that’s the breaks.

It is a little more complicated with trans females. It depends on the individual, and how long they have been blocking testosterone and taking estrogen supplements, and at what age they started.

How do we determine at the time of competition
They are equal to their bio female competitors?


ETA: if I misunderstood disregard.

In our PC world today, they would be torn apart for acting anything but happy about losing to him.


Maybe
Maybe not

Either way I don't understand why people get worked up over this stuff


What's the point of competition if you're gonna perpetually be 2nd place to a man? Is this the equality that women wanted?

Ok, first off Lance was oxygenating his blood. In the world of performance enhancing, this is like pot. He did not have a biological advantage.

Secondly, the tour de france is men's cycling.
Women compete in the tour de france Feminine.

Apple and oranges.

Hmm and how many are doing this before they've finished puberty?

Just a thought, what happens when they start openly creating enhanced human animal hybrids?
Wonder where the limit should be set.
