@jordanaustino: anecdotal evidence doesn't count for much unfortunately

@Adamrideshisbike: exactly. Nobody is saying Kate shouldn't be treated like a human being, but rather that it doesn't seem fair to other competitors to ignore some obviously unbalanced competition.

@drangus: I'm not sure the essence of punk rock is taking the easy way.... flying in the face of adversity is sort of less impressive when you benefit immensely from easier competition in the process.

@Milko3D: said better by ov3r1d3 :Try this....find any sport where FTM athletes are outcompeting males...now do the same w MTF...these are the relevant results...not estrogen/testosterone levels...trans should compete against trans and if their aren’t enough to compete get working on that aspect and it’s ironic how people who point out the legit hardships female racers already face are cool with this hardship happening, also ironic if anyone calls me a bigot etc for having this perspective..

@dhrracer: Presumably one who really wanted a challenge. But it just furthers my point that there is only advantages for men transitioning to female competition.

@Rigidjunkie: The physical advantage definitely isn't only from testosterone. Certain men and women have elevated levels, and it doesn't directly correlate to performance boosters. If their testosterone decreases but they don't lose any strength/power then that's a clear advantage.

it isn't fair at all. There is no documented lack of athletic ability in any transgender transition among pro level athletes. So essentially most if not all athletes see minimal to no loss or gain in performance after the switch.

It seems counter-intuitive to have women and men segregated in competition if you are going to allow them to cross-compete. If women want to compete with men then go for it but there should be a "open class" division where both genders can compete against one another. And if trans racers feel its unfair I'd have to question why they are worried about racing against men?
