So sensible you have to wonder why the hell it's taken so long to make it and why other sports keep dragging their heels.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

There shouldn't have been a decision to make in the first place .Sharon Davies for example has been virtually crucified for her beliefs that women are women and men are men

Common sense decision. It would make sense for all sports to fall in line on this principle. The bloke who wants to be a woman sounds quite bitter about it though

Ironically Sharron Davies has been the target of abuse because of her beliefs from those pleading for more tolerance!

If you get the chance Emily Bridges statement is well worth a read.

Absolutely batshit.

What about Non-binary people, they may identify as an intermediate or separate third gender or identify with more than one gender, no gender, or have a fluctuating gender identity.

There are biologically only two genders except for a very few hermaphrodite which are so small the ONS hasn't figures for.

A person cam of course identify as anything they want but that still no mean they are what they identify as.

FWIW, I do have a certain sympathy for the concept of trans athletes.

It's almost become a joke in certain circles about how all a mediocre male has to do is slap on a wig and some lippy and dominate women's sport. I'm not sure anyone really wants to risk alienating their friends and family, becoming a potential figure of ridicule and all just to win some medals in sports that don't pay all that well anyway. I believe that in most cases the need to transition is genuine.

Having said that, they simply cannot expect to be allowed to compete against biological women given the clear and obvious physical advantages inherent in growing up male. Physical disparity is the reason we have weight classes in contact sports and almost all other activities where strength plays a major role. It's a nonsense that they're trying to do it, an insult to women who have trained all their lives and simply cannot compete and it must not be allowed to happen any more.

Great post.

The rules are necessary imo to protect the integrity of women’s sport, but we are talking about a tiny number.

It’s not as if there are dozens of trans cyclists who’ve woken up this morning and have decided to return to being male because they can’t enter bike races.

There’s also the issue of changing rooms and women only spaces. Not sure whether it was America or Australia but there was one girls team who were being called transphobic for having the audacity to complain about one of their team mates helicoptering her penis around in a triumphant celebration of victory.

Also that.

People who voice genuine concerns are labelled as fascists, bigots, terfs and many other colourful perjoratives for for raising simple objections.
