Read this earlier:

Thoughts?

I'm coming at this from a position of ignorance so feel free to enlighten me either way, I've not really heard the arguments from either side, but my instinct would be that it's perfectly reasonable to suggest that it may not be fair for transgender women to compete in women's sport. It does not seem hateful to me to suggest that it may not be safe or fair on biological women to be up against opponents who were biologically born male, even if they are now fully transitioned. Are there good arguments to be made against that assumption?

My ignorance  on the subject is probably nicely summed up by my fucked up attempt at a topic title! Can that be changed by me or a mod so that it makes sense?

That's quite a deep question and the world hasn't yet got over the Caster Semenya hysteria!

As a cis man, I say:

Trans women are REAL women.

Some people are trans; get over it!

I've changed the title but don't feel qualified to comment on the content. Very tricky subject.

I don't think there's a definitively correct answer.

Trans people should have equal rights but, at the same time, it's a tad python-esque.

Is there no end to my sporting nightmares?

I have long been shown up by women on the squash court and in the pool. 

Myself apart, sport should be limited to "under 11s" where I am an invincible colossus.
