PC is a wonderful thing but I disagree with this decision. I think that when one is born physically a male, they come equipped with more than just that one appendage. Men are, generally, more muscular and stronger than women. Their bodies are, simply, built differently. To have that advantage in the sports world is, in my opinion, like an athlete taking drugs to enhance performance.
Until the sports world decides to stop dividing genders, that is, having everyone golf or shoot hoops or bat a tennis ball in the same competitions, I think the division need be respected. There are valid reasons for the divisions and being born into a male body firmly puts any athlete into that gender specific category in sports.
Iím totally sympathetic to transgendered people. I have met amazingly courageous transsexuals. I cannot even imagine how difficult it would have been for me if Iíd been born male. But no matter how you look at it, there is a physical difference.
Thatís my two cents worth.
Although I like your comment Lady C ... I wish I were much more impaired in that department!!
