The survey is asking you to predict the future. Dumb to ask the public to assess changes in sports governance.

 


I ain't got nuthin' funny to say. Sorry.

Fair point and hopefully they will ask Mumsnet for their views.

I think public opinion does partly factor in though. There appears to be a push back both in and outside of sport to keep womens sport, women only, for want of a better word. In some sports trans women would have an unfair advantage, and in others their participation may be dangerous.

I do agree with you in so much that there might be a period of time where they are feeling their way so to speak. I believe that a Male to female fought in MMA a while ago, but if anything that type of event will solidify views against.

Paula Radcliffe is speaking out against Trans people in women's sport. She is a brave lady as this seems to be a very loud pressure group so no doubt she is getting pelters.

[Link]

Next week Caster Semenya brings her case to court as she does not want to reduce her testosterone levels. Just to make it more complicated Caster is not a Trans person but a person who was born with both sets of bits and pieces I think they call that Intersex.

Paula feels if Trans people can compete without adjusting their testosterone levels it is game over for professional women's sport and I tend to agree with her.

In a previous post I said this really impacts women's sport far more then men and whilst I have sympathy with Trans people it does seem an unfair advantage.

I am glad I won't be the one unpicking this Gordian knot.

I read somewhere that the body development post puberty is permanent and that's where the advantage lies - testosterone was not the answer. A bit like Sharron Davies and Kathy Cook competing against East Germans

I didn't know which box to tick for the 'Would you?' question. So confusing.

It takes a special kind of weirdo to believe that someone born a male can magically become female or vice versa.

The rules of biology are, I believe, quite clear on this.

This whole thing is collective mental illness.
