I have a lot of questions about this, as I‘m not well informed about this topic. But first off, I think this is really good news and a very important step into the right direction. Fuck everyone that prohibits other people to participate in some kind of sport. People have it hard enough to come out. My questions are: Where does trans athleticism (not even sure about the term, I‘m sorry) stand right now in general? In sports, are trans athletes better than other athletes (regarding the gender they converted to)? Some people have been speculating that this might the case (at least from some media I read a long time ago, but there was no scientific research behind it that gave some truth to the claim). And if (if those athletes perform better by an overwhelming amount), is there at least an approach in existence to make it possible that trans athletes have the possibility to perform in their own groups against other trans athletes? And if it’s the primary approach right now, let me tell you - I have nothing against the idea to watch trans athletes give their all against another group of trans athletes for example. I’ll make the popcorn ready in a minute! I‘m really sorry if something sounds off. In my country, trans athleticism isn’t really a big thing. I don’t even know about one athlete in my country that is trans actually. I want to dig into this and be more informed about it.
