Just like other mental illnesses, we shouldnít mock this one either. But it is a mental illness. How else can you explain a biological male competing against and getting enjoyment from defeating women in sports? Itís sad that 98% of people recognize this obvious truth but are afraid to say it. Hell, Iím posting anonymously for fear of woke cancel-culture mobs coming after me.
The solution is simple. Born a male, play male sports. You can still take hormone blockers and get surgeries. But play male sports. Does that put you at a disadvantage? Most likely. But so do numerous other factors - from genuine physical disabilities to maybe just being born unathletic. If a trans athlete really loves the sport, theyíll still play it at the E/Rec mens level. So you canít say someone is telling you that you canít play.
As for cleaning up the womens game in other ways, that is a separate topic but should be addressed. I would have to hear some compelling arguments for why a female should be allowed to take steroids, look just like a man, and still play against females. Is there a legit medical reason for a woman to take steroids and look like that besides to have an enormous physical advantage? Plus,, the lasting damage steroids will do to a womanís body is exactly why you donít see that many women taking them in slowpitch softball.
But men take steroids? Yes, but there are medical reasons for some to do it (not always), so thatís tougher to regulate.
