LOL Anyone else notice that the mother is the female they’re fighting over?
Ironic Wiley is calling for no tribalism when he’s VERY tribal.
… I hope they already sent in a scuba tank.
I’m not sure I understand your lack of understanding. A lifetime of extra testosterone gives a male an advantage even after stop more from coming in. Males are, on average; bigger, stronger, and faster than women.
Take Laurel Hubbard. "The 43-year-old, who was born male but transitioned to female in her 30s, is on the verge of reaching the Tokyo Olympics under coronavirus-enforced new qualifying rules.
Hubbard, who also competed as a male, became eligible to lift as a woman after showing testosterone levels below the threshold required by the International Olympic Committee."
So, she built up a lot of muscle as a male, but now gets to compete against females because her testosterone is low enough. That’s not fair to biological females.
Similarly, the best 400 meter sprint time for U.S. runner Allyson Felix, the fastest female sprinter in the world, is 49.26 seconds. According to 2018 data, nearly 300 high school boys in the U.S. alone could beat Felix’s world record. Would that be fair to Felix to deny her the right to compete just because a guy took some hormones for a few months?
If you allow males to compete against biological females, then there will soon be no females in “women’s” sports.
The difference in your example is one is natural and one is human-made. We forbid athletes from taking more testosterone than nature provides because it gives an unfair advantage.
Why not have a third category? Both trans men and trans women? All hormones legal?
Um, no you don’t. Testosterone is already a banned substance and (by scientific consensus) gives women who take it an unfair advantage over other women. It’s exactly the reason that men and women don’t compete against each other. Testosterone is a heck of a drug and gives men an unfair advantage.
Biggest example right now: Men can be women. Or taking that lie to a new step: “It is fair when males who identify as females compete in girls’ and women’s sports.”
Logic, reason, and facts are not wanted by the left.
I find it interesting that those who preach most about “trusting the science” ignore science and statistics when it suits their agenda.
Only if you want to vote Republican. Don’t worry though. The Party will soon make voting for anyone else illegal.
