A new study suggests transgender women maintain an athletic advantage over their cisgender peers even after a year on hormone therapy.
The results, published last month in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, could mean the current one-year waiting period for Olympic athletes who are transitioning is inadequate.
“For the Olympic level, the elite level, I’d say probably two years is more realistic than one year,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Timothy Roberts, a pediatrician and the director of the adolescent medicine training program at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. “At one year, the tran5 women on average still have an advantage over the cis women,” he said, referring to cisgender, or nontransgender, women.
[…]For the first two years after starting hormones, the tran5 women in their review were able to do 10 percent more pushups and 6 percent more situps than their cisgender female counterparts. After two years, Roberts told NBC News, “they were fairly equivalent to the cisgender women.”
Their running times declined as well, but two years on, tran5 women were still 12 percent faster on the 1.5 mile-run than their cisgender peers.
Very interesting to think about when you consider Biden’s executive action allowing transgender women into biological women’s sports.
But you can’t say anything about it, because it you do, Big Tech will ban you.
Attacks against free speech by big tech companies have quickly escalated into a full-blown censorship campaign as social media giants are now regularly targeting and silencing Christians and conservatives. Their latest target? Focus on the Family.
The Christian organization has just been censored by Twitter. The platform locked the global ministry’s “Daily Citizen” publication for allegedly violating their rules against posting “hateful” content.
Focus on the Family CEO Jim Daly said this accusation is absolutely untrue.
The Daily Citizen tweeted a quote on Jan. 19 from one of its articles acknowledging that the Biden administration appointed a transgender woman to serve as Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of HHS.
The tweet read: “Dr. Lev1ne is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”
It’s “inclusivity”. You can’t even explain what the terms mean any more, because feelings are more important than facts to the people in charge of permitting speech.
