[LMB] Gendered English

The problem is not with intersexuals. It is with, primarily, XY males who have gone through puberty and have the physical attributes of adult men. If it makes sense to have separate competitions for men and women, it makes no sense for them to complete against women.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

If you seriously think that there’s not a few women with Kleinfelter’s or who are XY with CAIS playing US and international tennis, you are seriously deluding yourself; or, XX men playing in the men’s division! Again, red hair is ~1% of the population, but I doubt you push back on its existence like you are here—would you try to get it barred from, say, licenses? And yet intersex conditions are ~1.7% of the population, and here we are!
