    No. The 20th century version would not include "everyone else." Most people used to think sex was completely binary. (Many still do, but they are still living in the 20th century.)

    Apparently, there have been non-Nike sponsored runners who have got their sponsors' consent to run in vaporflys by covering the logo with tapes.

    There are also hardcore people who insist no one with Y chromosome (including those with CAIS) should ever be allowed to compete against women. They couldn't care less about the T-level, or for that...

    I am not trying to make it a social issue. I am simply asking a question on whether the relative size of trans population matters in thinking about this issue.

    A big NO. I am not suggesting anything like that.

    My question is when it is ever a good argument to dismiss certain people's rights because they are a tiny minority. Would anyone change their...

    And requiring the student athletes to compete in...

    I am one of those "crazy distance fans" who like seeing the entire race. But I am perfectly fine with the first 9200m on a big screen.

    Then let them finish the last 600-800 in the stadium like a marathon. Most championship races are decided in the last 600, so they won't miss much.

    4 years of college is about 5% of an average person's life. You have the other 95% either before or after college for your lifetime learning.

    I don't think Messi is an exceptional "athlete" for a world class soccer player. But he has better ball skills than Ronaldo.
