Quote from: Josquius on June 21, 2022, 04:55:43 PM1: it's good to see some nuance. They're specifying top level international events rather than the absolute bans on trans people in sport the transphobes are calling out for.
QuoteThey are using science. And the science suggests that if you go through a male phase while in puberty, the long term effects on physiology at the highest levels are significant and measurable, even once testoserone levels return to non-male levels.
QuoteI am amused though that what is now seen as "driven by policy of the governing bodies" used to be called "Transphobe bigotry!"
Quote from: viper37 on June 21, 2022, 06:57:58 PMit should be a ban on all competitive sports. otherwise, girls sports becomes pretty meaningless. young girls get discouraged if they constantly lose and develop a sense of unfairness.And you don't reach the top competitive sports by constantly being 3rd or 4rth in your sport.
Quoteas you admit yourself, it's based on science, not bigotry.
Quote from: Admiral Yi on June 22, 2022, 02:42:43 AMSqueeze, a bit back you linked a study that showed trans female members of the US Air Force had no physical advantage over cis female zoomies after two years of hormone replacement, which I found convincing and I said as much at the time. These rulings by the two sports bodies, and your support for their positions, appear to contradict the findings of that study.
Quote from: Josquius on June 22, 2022, 12:50:54 AMTransexual people who are interested in sports are very rare. The media massively overblows how much of a problem this is.
QuoteTransexual people interested in sports who win are rarer still. As much as the media likes to pretend any man or trans person who picks up a ball instantly crushes all women, thats just not the way it works.
QuoteIf not winning stops you from taking part in sports then you really don't get the entire point of sport.
QuoteThe gains to be made from transexual people as a whole keeping in shape, being able to have a social life etc... Are far greater than any potential loss from another girl once in a blue moon coming second in an unimportant game.
