Swedish researchers who are studying performance changes in trans women who lower T levels have begun publishing results. Here is the first release, showing 5% drop in muscle volume, 4% drop in area & no change in isokinetic knee strength after 11 months.

So damning is this that the IOC is refusing to make a decision for the Olympics through fear of being labelled transphobic.

Its time to stop this insanity. We have seperate protected categories for a reason. Which are based off sex, age, disability differences etc. How people feel based on their gender, should never superscede sex based human rights laws or eligibility in protected female categories.
Tranwomen go through male puberty which has massive advantages for them which as seen HRT fails to neutralise the differences.

This is something the ladies will have to figure out. At some point, there will be few to no cisgendered females involved in sports if they don't.

It can be easily sorted out if the female protected categories are based on sex eligibility abnd not gender.

They could introduce an open ended caegory alongside this for participants, no matter if transgender

Yeah, but as your title suggests, politics are driving this decision.
