    Mind Trapped by: "Womans" sports

    ---The story---
    https://www.foxnews.com/sports/not-f...oman-wins-gold

    The above link is tells the story of how the woman's Cycling competition was won (gold medal) by a transgender woman, who didn't even have the common decency to cut his dick off before competing (2). The bronze medalist complained that it wasn't fair. Later she tweeted a retraction and an apology, and vowed to try to have the rules changed.

    -opinion-
    So this is so sweet. This is like when you dunk the Oreo in milk, and your mouth is already watering, because you just know it is going to be awesome. So my favorite part, is that it is a fat dude standing between to svelte women. Having a bit of internet troubles, but suffice it to say, it really doesn't appear that this person could have competed with the men. Why is this so good you ask? Because this will become the new norm. I can't wait till a real male athlete who can't quite break into the top 10 of his own gender, decide that he can get all sorts of money and attention from winning gold and setting records in everything he sets his hand to in the woman's category.

    -discussion-
    So, several women competitors have viewed it as unfair. The top competitor withdrew in protest. (2) those who spoke against it as being unfair would ask for anonymity, and in the above linked story the bronze winner was made to regret her statements, but clearly didn't change her position.
    For the purpose of this debate the question is. How should the competitors protest what they feel is an unfair advantage?
    What implications should we draw from the fact that the small population of trans is able to produce Gold medal winning over the much larger population of standard women?
    At what point should we start to be concerned about the ability of standard women to compete in woman's sports? (for example, suppose the top 10 in every woman's sport was trans gender. would that be enough a cause for concern)
