However, lets be honest, if you get rid of the separation between men's and women's sports you have officially gotten rid of women in sports--at least 99.9% of them.
Agreed. It's a imperfect system, but the best system we can come up with to assure as much competition and participation as possible.
I'm not sure I understand which way you are agreeing on. Killing women's participation or allowing transgenders? I know my last post was absurd, it was just to illustrate the absurdity of bending the system for less than 1 percent of people.

It's pathetic to me that people point to the NCAA rules as making these situations "fair," and yet we routinely see males who participate in female athletics dominate despite all the hormone guidelines. Just a coincidence that the guys who "transition" just so happen to be the best on a level playing field? Use some common sense.

The rules are an excuse to build a narrative that it's fair. In fact, this insanity of confirming people's delusion could very easily destroy women's athletics. That's who I actually feel sorry for-- the hard working athletes who are legitimately female and whose hard work is being sacrificed on the altar of junk science political correctness.

Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

So the griz edged out the lady Cats because they had a guy who finished third. So brave.

The Grizzlies knocked off the host Bobcats by five points to give Montana its first victory over Montana State since the 2016 Big Sky Conference Championship.
There you have it. lady griz can't beat the Lady Cats unless they put a dude on their team. Maybe the Lady Cats should have just trained harder and demonstrated a little bit more commitment.

I’m sure it takes a lot of courage to walk this path, especially in this state, so kudos to her for that. However, when it comes to athletics there should be two gender classifications - born with an inny and born with an outty.

There problem solved..........Next

Thank you
Well stated
Ditto

I do not agree with transgenders but whatever they do is fine. But as far as athletics SPOT ON utucats.
