I made a horemone once, I didn't pay her.

All joking aside this opens up another can of worms, (not willys) as you are right. How can a woman transitioning to be a man dosed up on testosterone be allowed to compete ?

I'm not sure they would be allowed to compete as taking testosterone is banned.

Does anyone have a definitive answer on this?

It's only a matter of time before sports won't be able to be divided by gender. It may seem silly and would probably lower standards but I still think it is only a matter of time. So many young people are pan-gender or gender fluid that the current system will no longer work. How that will equate to the Premier League etc. who knows?
Something like the Olympics will be the first to change - probably on an event by event basis. Eventually a lot of sports will change. Sports will be vilified if they don't change.

How a person identifies can be distinguished from their birth sex which is why this debate has come up in the first place.

I can't see how the Premier League can be impacted by this. If a woman identified as a man and wanted to play for a top tier team, she wouldn't be good enough anyway.

I expect most sports to eventually bring in rules along safety and performance grounds that rule out trans people from becoming some kind of record breakers across the board.

I've always been of the view that if a female was good enough to play in a male professional football team and it was purely on merit then cool.

Same with cricket or well anything in life.

My attitude completely changes when it isn't purely based upon merit.

I also don't like hearing how people need to change 'culturally' to accommodate someone's gender/sexuality/sensitivity or whatever else it is.

Merit....the protection and promotion of competence before all other things. Productive people are the lifeblood of all that is good in the world. They made your phones, cured the diseases, operate your surgery and everything else.

Newton, by all accounts, was an arseh0le.......but thank feck for Newton.....That arseh0le did god knows how much more for humanity that all the well meaning nice people rounded up together could probably ever do.
