Ideally there would be a separate section for transgender sportspeople, similar to the Paralympics but perhaps incorporated into the main events.


This is only ideal for the whiny TERFs. Trans people certainly don't want that

Maybe, but that's the only way I can see there being a fair way to compete in sports for the trans population, although I'm not overly educated on the matter.


If it’s so unfair, why don’t trans athletes dominate?

Because there's a relatively low number of trans people, who would have to be interested in sports in the first place (they aren't going to go into sports just because they're trans), and they have trouble getting into competitions in the first place.

The most "fair" way is to just do away with women's sport altogether and make everything unisex

Not much fun for women if only the exceptional ones even have a chance to compete (like Serena Williams). If discrimination in sports is bad now, women wouldn't even get a look in if that happened, except in things where they have an advantage, like some gymnastics.
Perhaps the golden rock was inside us all along.

So you’re saying it’s not really even a problem
Thank you, Eddie Guerrero.

Only one team deflated footballs. That wasn't really a problem either. Poor Patriots, man.
No problem!
This is a cute and pop genocide of love!

If we are going to allow it, then it has to go both ways to be completely fair.

We have been seeing many MtF trans athletes come in and dominate womans sports and even breaking world records.

So if we want it to be fair we need to let FtM athletes come in and dominate Male sports. I'd cheer for a FtM NBA team that comes in next year and dominates Lebron & AD in the playoffs.

If they deflated the balls and then lost a lot more than they won, would it be a problem?

To answer this poll, I don’t believe FtM athletes should compete against females in sports, no. They should compete against other males.

FtM should not participate with women. That doesn't make sense.

MtF should be allowed to be in women's sports only if their hormone levels have been suppressed for a sufficiently long period of time. Some studies have suggested 6 months is enough, but I'd feel better saying a year to provide extra chance for any additional testosterone-fueled muscle mass to atrophy. Really, just treat them like someone on steroids, since it's basically the same thing.

Either group is welcome to participate in men's sports. They have no advantage there.
