More or less laughable than the alternative of watching transitioned female athletes beating birth female athletes? Yes, it would be a small field but at least they would be competing against their peers and any win would be properly acknowledged; as it stands any victory that a transitioned female athlete achieves is tainted for me, and I suspect the vast majority.
If we look at the golf this weekend, most would agree (even on this forum) that Fitzpatrick is a very slim golfer who has worked hard to increase ball speeds and so on to improve he’s length, if he were to transition he would still be not far off the build of 50% of the LPGA players yet I don’t know many with 120+ mph ball speeds and that is a mix of technique and unfortunately make genetics.
There are many other sports where the highest performing sports women attempt make categories and are simply average by comparison , even in motorsports where it’s less about physical ability.
I’m a believer that born gender is the way to ensure that there is no grey area and if society is to adapt then it’s female or open categories.
