what is man

This video asks the question what is woman and some of the answers are outta this world. At some point one is almost confused. But as Pink advised, in conversation I will just refer to people as you and not ask about sex given some people no longer have it and others have it frequently.

On the trans debate

Those of you not living under a rock, like say, Ark, know the 2020 Tokyo Olympics extravaganza ends today and it has had some great performances and tear inducing moments such as the athletes who agreed to share gold among others. But on the sidelines, there are issues of mental health that were also brought to light. But all these are for another time and day.

What interests me is this question about these two women/ girls from Namibia being able to participate in future games because of naturally occurring testosterone. What is the fair thing to do? And this is where the trans matters come in. These males have a history of high testosterone and I guess with hormone inhibitors, their range would still be higher than that of the average woman( I may be wrong). Should they compete with women? Should we not have, as we discussed in the previous post, have their own categories?

What are your thoughts?

On sports

Or on sports and transgender.

For some reason, after solving the world hunger problem, there has been desire by some quarters to have transgender females or is it males participate in women sports and the response has definitely been divided. I have read and maybe some of you too, that these days all it takes to be a woman is to feel it inside your heart and that’s all. There are transgender people who are having hormonal treatment to reduce their testosterone but whether this is sufficient to allow them to participate in an all women activity is a matter of debate.

Now, I have no problem with any one participating in any athletic endeavour. Why not have categories that cover every group. All male; All female; Trans male/ female though I have not heard of a trans male who wants to participate in a male sporting event. Maybe I haven’t read widely, which can be forgiven.

What do you think sporting bodies or organizers should do?
