A Transgender Woman is Stronger Than a Woman...

It seems silly to have to write that title and to make a claim that is fundamentally obvious however, when a man doesn't place well in men's weightlifting and transfers to the women's competition, it will never be a surprise that they are winning all of the competitions.

We can decipher puberty, timing of puberty blockers, how much personal information the rules of said competition requires but if you peel it all back, a man last week will always be stronger than a woman this week, regardless of how they identify.

Not all, but many sports need a third open or intramural lane of competition. When I was growing up and playing soccer, there were intramural options that someone could participate in. Where is that option now and why is it such a travesty to suggest?
