I guess it’s all about equality, but the trans athlete gets to be more equal than others. While men and women are restricted to sports of their own sex, the trans athlete gets to choose whichever one feels right.
The whole reason we feminists fought for Title IX in the 1970s was so that females, who have bodies that are, at every level and every age, at every level of competition, slower and weaker than male bodies, could compete against each other and thereby have fair and equal access to sporting opportunities. We didn’t come up with Title IX because sporting opportunities were lacking for athletes who like to wear dresses and makeup.
I’ve been posting about transphobia, that bigoted belief system that asserts that human beings (with rare exception for genetic anomalies) come in two sexes, one that’s designed for the production of numerous tiny motile sex cells and the other that’s designed for production of a single large mostly-immobile sex cell, the combination of which produces a fertilized embryo carried and borne by the latter sex.
