I think I've commented on this before but DSDs and trans gender athletes (imo) is not comparing like with like and so not helpful.

A recent blog examines the issues of comparing Caster's situation to Hubbard. It recognises the unfairness and difficulty for intersex athletes in competing. There's no easy answer and I found it thought provoking.

The writer has the opinion that biological males should not be competing against bio women.

I agree MsG.

DSD athletes are a separate consideration.

Women with Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome are 46XY but I don't believe anyone informed as to what this means has any issues with them competing. Anyway as you say this is a different topic.

Got something to say?
