    I wonder how long could Jenner been competitive as a transgender athlete after no longer a decathlete?

    I don't think I'll ever be "enlightened" enough to buy into this nonsense.

    You are already enlightened enough; you're just not 'woke'.
    And speaking of which, that word started out as being ironic (snarky) and then somehow turned earnest and that's part of why we find ourselves in this predicament. If everyone's personal perspective is deemed legitimate, then we just have chaos. I get that a man can 'feel' like a woman and wants to keep pursuing all his/her bliss paths as a female, but when that path requires someone else to be pushed off theirs unfairly (athletically speaking), then I'm really sorry, but that's not acceptable.

    Civil decent people have always known that we should be kind and caring. We treat people the way they want to be treated. If I must work daily with a male that thinks they are a female, we dont call that person "sir" we treat them as they want to be treated.

    All was well for quite a while as we treated such males as females. But then the ante got uped. And it was not enough to simply treat a male as a female, you had to redefine what was female, and until we did that we were declared not-right, we were labeled as flawed and a throwback to a vicious time.

    It is out of control and we need a return "normalcy", an end to this present war on nature needs to declared.

    We need a very simple set of rules that define the female category. It must absolutely NOT include anything psychological or self referential. It must be a battery of biological/medical tests that establish the female gender of the athlete. There is no perfect way to do that but that does not mean it cant be done to the benefit of all.

    Stop the madness.

    That's a pretty good analogy IMO.

    If enough coaches would adopt Ms Hubers declaration to never allow one of her female runners to compete against men transgenders who "identify" as female, I believe this problem would soon be solved.
