i've been vocal about this issue previously but i'm not a parent and i'm not a female. with that, i've decided, because this doesn't directly affect me, i'll let those who this does affect speak up and fight for what's best for them. i have not heard about an organized group of female athletes speak up on the issue.

JimA49ers could have used a different way to describe his points BUT he has valid points, IMO. Like it or not, a male body has an advantage over women body (generally). Male transitioning to female still have that clear advantage (in most cases).

Having said that, I don't know the right answer whether it should be allowed or not. Like Rubs, I see both points and don't know the answer.

agree he has a point as I stated up front, except his analogies were stupid and were not based on science like he stated. My point was just to talk about the issue without being a dick. Because its real people.

My other point is many people keep saying this is the death of womens sports which is also false. Its a very small percentage.

I doubt women's sport will decline however there will be a lot of scrutiny moving forward if it happens.

They were amazingly progressive. Both male and female competitors started taking a horseload of steroids, making any concerns about gender altogether redundant.

On the other hand there is still a considerably high amount of homophobia for a sport where male competitors strip down to Speedos, rub oil all over their bodies and prance around, showing off their muscles on a brightly lit stage.

Only if Juwanaman has boobies. I'd watch dudes with boobs dunk.

The close proximity competitions and sports are the ones that have the most homophobia. Can't wrestle or put oil on a man who may get turned on by it.

The progressive moment lacks common sense.
