That’s fine, but a woman, Caster Semenya can’t compete,because she is deemed to have a bit to much testosterone,crazy world.

The small framed runners who
got Semenya banned should be
ashamed.

Maybe everybody should carry
9stone minimum, like in the Derby.

Or maybe little 5ft Kenyan thinks
it's also unfair the Romanian woman
who is 6feet tall, weighs 18 stone
can chuck a hammer further than her?

As for weightlifting events, its
staggering that they still exist
given the drug culture around the
sport.

Now a competitor who was a man, has
to take drugs to be able to compete.

It's getting a bit silly, innit?

I must admit, it would appear to me that the New Zealand weightlifter must have an advantage, which is wrong.

Rowing found their sport was getting
dominated by big athletes, so
they split medals and introduced
a lightweight category at olympics.

It's worked well as far as I can see.



Maybe athletics should go down
weight category route.


If a transgender category coukd
be formulated, why not let them
as some sports the advantage
gained by being male in early
years can never be negated.

All for letting folk get on with
life, but also feel sport should
be as fair as possible.

A 20 stone boxer transitioning
aged 30,would surely never
be allowed to fight in womens
Olympic boxing, it would be
super dangerous.

Pointless to have gender restrictions in sport in the first place imo.

Elite sport should be elite sport. Who can run fastest or lift most. Its patronising to give someone a trophy for running fastest when youve excluded half the population because they might be faster

I'm not sure exactly what is and isn;t taught in UK schools, i would have to spend time researching that which i am not prepared to do

there was a story recently posted on here about BBC teaching material claiming there were 100 genders, not sure if that was primary or secondary schools

drag queen story hour: pretty sure this has happened in UK and Ireland though

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag_Queen_Story_Hour

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH), Drag Queen Storytime, and Drag Story Time are children’s events first started in 2015 by author and activist Michelle Tea in San Francisco with the goals to “inspire a love of reading, while teaching deeper lessons on diversity, self-love and an appreciation of others.”[1][2][3]

The events, usually geared for children aged 3–11, are hosted by drag queens who read children’s books, and engage in other learning activities in public libraries.[4][5]...

Jonathan Hamilt, who co-founded the New York chapter as a nonprofit, said that as of June 2019, DQSH has 35 U.S. and five international chapters.[6]

The program strives to “instill the imagination and play of gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly **** role models.[7]

On Tuesday, the Union of European Football Associations rejected Munich’s request to light up the Allianz Arena in rainbow colours during Germany’s match against Hungary. The mayor of Munich, Dieter Reiter, had proposed the gesture as a protest against Hungary’s new law banning the sharing of LGBTQ content to minors. UEFA defended the decision to reject Munich’s request, saying, “the rainbow is not a political symbol.”

That is actually another problem in itself. Southgate was banging on about how he feels a responsibility to use his reach to talk about things outside sport and he doesnt believe in ‘sticking to football’.

The problem is that people with reach have a completely different perspective because they are also more reachable. Hope United have a couple of good ideas but then theyre banging on about anonymous online abuse as though they think everyone gets bombarded with it. The average loser kid is probably wondering why they never get any messages at all let alone a hateful one.
