Let's touch on the subject of transgender athletes.

Does anyone have any thoughts they would like to share to the group on Transgender men competing in women's sports? Maybe the media is exaggerating but it seems like more and more transgender men are competing and winning. I dont remember where I read it and I cant cite a source but I did read about male transgender athletes that compete in women's sports place substantially higher than women.

Please see that this isn't under the politics category.

UTAuley icon NEW: It's a tough one, because a transgendered female athlete (i.e. born male) will biologically have denser/stronger bones, ligaments, and tendons, as well as a larger lung capacity and cardiovascular reserve.

o NEW: I don't follow women sports, and I am not transphobic, so I haven't given this topic any thought.
