    Yes, they'd create a trans division faster than anyone can zip up a pair of trousers.

    That is because a real man like you knows what shame is. Im not sure these people know shame. They would want to shame us for thinking that gender is a biological fact and not a social construct.

    Objecting to trans people competing against non-trans folk is one thing. Let's not confuse that issue with the ordeal that trans people go through when they realize they're not comfortable with the gender assigned by nature. No doubt they know a lot more about shame than you ever will, and it isn't the shame that's appropriate to having done something wrong.

    Except that the shame I was referring to was not the shame of the child, who should feel no shame. It is the shame of someone in authority that allows boys to compete against girls. Most readers of what I wrote picked that not so subtle fact up easily.

    Other than that I totally agree with you, we need to have compassion and understanding for all people, we need to accept people as they are and let them know that they are perfect just the way they are.

    At the same time we are not helping anyone by telling a person they are something they are not. Telling a boy that he is a girl just because he wants to compete against and socialize as a girl is not doing right by anyone.

    Most of these beautiful perfect kids would never be taking advantage of weaker females in sport competition but for the cues that come to them from cultural leaders who are telling them that they should be competing as females.

    We can care for and have compassion for everyone without letting the most basic category of sport become the play thing of societal wreckers. Putting mascara on a boy and giving him a field hockey stick does not make it a fair competition. And there is simply no competition if it is not a fair one.

    Now dont thank me, thank you !

    What you wrote was followed by 2 posts, mine and another that seconded what I wrote. Where did you obtain your phenomenal psychic gifts?

    And what does any of this have to do with the T level of those "leaders"? Ever heard of Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi or Gorda Meir, just to name a few?

    We use "T level" as a metaphor for courage and strength because it provides an irony in the present context that should be amusing.

    What a pile of sexist drivel. Here's a fact: T levels have been associated with IQ, but only in men, and not at excessively high amounts.
