Born female is fair competing with men. Well not really fair to her but she is welcome to try.
Born male competing with females is all kinds of wrong. Everyone knows it but some support the narcissistic illusion despite reality.

But being a female playing on a male team creates a unfair advantage for other teams and unbalances the game itself. Even if they won having the disadvantage, how many points would they have made without being disadvantaged? It’s all messed up. I’m never going to watch this stuff. No hormones ever taken and only play for the sex they were born with for it to be fair game. They really should have separate transgender/mixed sex competitions so it won’t even be a qualification.

They love gardening, they’re a big gardener. A normal person with normal hobbies.

If trans “men” are men — why is “he” playing on a woman’s team? Pretty transphobic of soccer authorities to still treat a trans “man” like any other female player. All the pro-trans/anti-patriarchy people should be protesting a “man” (and a white one at that!) being allowed to play on a women’s team.

But clearly even they don’t believe their own bullsh#t.
