    My guess is that the vast majority want no part of this, and are just as perplexed as we are. And keep in mind that the NCAA makes clear distinctions between men's programs and women's programs, regardless of whether or not there's one head coach over both teams. A transgender basketball player expecting a spot on the women's basketball team is no different than a transgender track athlete expecting it, and I can't see Gino Auriemma going for this nonsense.

    It seems to me that change will come when there is enough of a pushback from biological women, who are either denied a place on the team or a place on the podium because of transgender athletes. Other factors are important, but this is critical.

    The quoted paragraph starts at the end of page 2 of the PDF.
    This article is worthy of the ONION.

    When girls start losing athletic scholarships to transgenders I'm pretty sure they and their parents will be screaming the loudest.

    Im going to toss an idea out there that this could be a slow process as women are biologically somewhat less competitive by nature. A greater proportion of them simply want to be the best they can be. It is the parents (and moreso the fathers) that might be the ones to raise hell over this.

    The very reason we have female-only competitions could be the reason why females are not as likely to make an issue out of having transgender athletes as competition. Im just thinking outside the bun!

    Sadly, they will likely be sued.

    And where exactly are those transgender athletes? Do they suddenly pop up because a coach wants to sign them?

    If women were as complacent as you seem to believe there would be no Title IX.

    They would come from the same place the transgender track athletes came from. I would have thought that shame would deter a male athlete from going this route but I was wrong.

    And where are those track athletes? June Eastwood of b-ball would not turn a struggling team to a D1 national champion.
