    Perfectly stated. Just enough information. The right amount of detail.

    I should think any THINKING person could take that information, do some research, and come to the right conclusion.

    I am sharing it widely.

    Yeah, this is great, and I like how it's distilled down to “neuromuscular efficiency”.

    Some citations would be useful for the types that are too lazy to initiate their own research.

    It's surprising that this topic even requires a committee.
    Common sense is not so common.

    This is really good, but the fundamental problem with appealing to Officialdom about any of this insanity, at this late stage, is making the assumption that these people, even at the highest levels of academia, even care about the truth to begin with.

    They don't even see things in terms of truths and lies. These things are irrelevant when their only concern is driving the agenda.

    We are talking about a society which permits adults to abuse their own small children by giving them hormone blockers. Society doesn't just permit it - it celebrates it. Do you think the same people in charge care about things like differences in rates of injury between the sexes, or fairness in competition?

    Once again, the fucking media. Note the tone of this BBC piece: Transgender women in sport: Are they really a 'threat' to female sport? - BBC Sport

    Critics say it is unfair to have a trans woman competing in female sport with a biologically male body, though McKinnon says that view goes against point four of the International Olympic Committee charter, which says: "The practice of sport is a human right."

    The theory goes that because men can count on physiological advantages that on average make them bigger, faster and stronger, trans women will also benefit, making competition unfair.

    Some also say male hormones such as testosterone being present in trans women's bodies since birth give them a boost.
    And this is an astonishing piece of psy-op:

    It is not hard to pick out Hannah Mouncey in a picture of the Australian women's handball team. She is bigger and taller than the rest of the players.

    Last year, Mouncey - the only transgender woman in the squad - was banned from being nominated for the women's Australian Rules draft because of the disparity in size between her and her opponents.

    In response, she said: "Think about the message it sends to women and girls about their bodies: if you're too big, you can't play. That is incredibly dangerous and backward.

    "Being heavy is not necessarily an advantage in a game that has such an emphasis on endurance and speed."
    If you recognize the reason we have weight classes in "sport", then you're really body-shaming women.
