unwarranted hate just for being who they are
This is backwards, nonsensical thinking that contributes to this unfair competition. The reality is that trans people left who they were in pursuit of being someone new, hence, “transition.”
There are many, I’m sure, who hate trans people for being trans, and that’s not right. But much of the resistance to allow trans people to compete in sports, is not due to hate, but due to the fact that you cannot simply ignore the lingering advantages of who they once were.
Is it fair that cis people who are just trying to “be who they are“, should lose to people who didn’t want to be who they were?
