I posted this query because this was discussed on CBS' Sunday Morning show yesterday.
It sems there are 17 states where boys who call themselves "transgender" can show up wearing girls clothes and compete in races as a girl without surgery or female hormones. Only one girl has been able to come in first against someone born as a male.
The whole situation reflects on who gets scholarships and at what schools.
A lawsuit has been filed by female athletes. One award winning female athlete backing the young girls is tennis player Martina Navratalova. She is one of many women who put in a lot of time in training to excel in her chosen sport.

Now it’s national. We had a discussion on this before. Nothing has changed except now it’s mandated.

Yep, but I didn't know that my state of Oregon would allow any males to compete in any female sport without taking female prescription hormones and/or surgery to change their body to look like a female from head to toe. Also, it means a lot to a girl hoping to get scholarships at a good college if she does well. Perhaps the males want a scholarship, too but are not as good as some of the male competitors?

Yes that is all true.  It’s going to repot in a huge fight because according to woke culture, we should not care. But those involved care very much.

Yes, the girls care. They might have a chance to go to the Olympics or prestigious colleges. All the boys have to do is put on girls clothes.

That’s not quite all. They must identify as women and live that way.

No problem for someone who stands to get a top education for cheap or free.

Hard to know at this time. I don't recall many boys starting hormone treatment so early. Some have felt that he is too young to understand everything involved. i know of at least one actress who is helping her adopted child transition as a preteen. There was a time when people had to live as opposite sex before getting hormones, let alone surgery.
