New Zealand Study Claims We Need To Get Rid Of Gendered Sports

It appears we have a winner for the worse possible idea when it comes to addressing trans-people in sports. A New Zealand Study claims that the current state of sports is wrong. The study concludes that sports need to be more inclusive. It claims we need to get rid of male and female teams, and instead have a more “nuanced approach.”

International Olympic Committee guidelines from 2015 permit transwomen to compete against cis-women if their testosterone is held below 10 nmol/L.
However, this is much higher than that of cis-women. So should transwomen be allowed to compete in women’s events?

The University of Otago researchers believe that they should, but that “the existing male/female categories in sport should be abandoned in favor of a more nuanced approach satisfying both inclusion and fairness”. Their arguments are long and well worth reading in full. What they propose is dismantling gender-segregated sport.

The best solution is to dump the male/female binary in sport, replacing it with an algorithm which takes into account gender identity, socioeconomic status and physiology. The physiological parameters might include height, weight, hemoglobin levels, transition before or after puberty, testosterone levels with and without testes, bone strength, and so on.”

This doesn’t make sense. Most people are either male or female, so, therefore, we should have a league per gender. It is only fair. Transpeople should make their own league, as they are more of an in-between gender. This may sound unfair, but really it is unfair when men who convert over to female suddenly dominate female sports.

Raw Powerlifting Federation Board said it best.

Men naturally have a larger bone structure, higher bone density, stronger connective tissue and higher muscle density than women,” the board wrote. “These traits, even with reduced levels of testosterone do not go away. While MTF may be weaker and less muscled than they once were, the biological benefits given to them at birth still remain over that of a female.”
