      If it is globally accepted which I doubt, will not pose any majoy problem. The big is this; is it fair for a biological man who transgendered to a woman to compete with other athletes who are biological women? This will raise a big global out cry and the fall out will be massive and could disrupt well organized events like Olympics and FIFA world cup. How will the organizers of these events and similar ones resolve this impasse? This is going to be a sensitive one and must be handled with caution.

      It will be unfair for my daughter to compete with a transgender. This is a grey area and needs to be crystallize to avoid confusion in our modern world. Do I have any problem with a man who changed to a woman? My answer is an emphatic no! Do I have any problem with a man who changed to a woman to compete against a biological woman? My answer is an emphatic yes! For instance, what will happen if Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic transgendered to a woman, would they start playing 3 sets instead of 5 sets? Would they be at an advantage over the women? Think about it. Would this be a more serious issue than the bathroom conundrum ? Would Serena Williams play a grand slam against a transgendered Djokovic or Nadal? Your cerebral? Welcome to https://www.provocativedebate.com.

      It definitely wouldn’t be fair, The point is a few hormones and a change in the exterior of a person does not mean their original biology has changes. It is a simple fact that a transgender man( actual man) , will probably be stronger than an actual woman.

      <p style=”text-align: left;”>Inasmuch as I want everyone ‘s choice and way of live to be respected , it must not violate other people’s beliefs and create discomfort for them. It is not proper and it will not be proper for a man who transgendered to compete with women in any sport. This is a serious issue and needs a global intervention and this is urgent. Should this be classified as intentional cheating?</p>
