There is more to men's physical advantage over women than their muscle development.

Men are larger than women. They have a far greater bone mass.

Men have larger lungs, wider airways, and greater lung diffusion capacity than women, even if they're the same height.

There are differences in cardiovascular function. Men pump more blood than women. They have far greater left ventricular mass and chamber size than women. Because the left ventricular ejection fraction is the same in both sexes, the stroke volume is larger in men than in women


None of these physical advantages are adjusted by the use of medications during the transitioning process.
Even the muscle development of a man takes longer to "equalise" with transitioning drugs than was previously thought.


Why would you type this last sentence?

Are you trying to characterise those who are opposed to trans women in female sport as bigoted transphobic knuckle-draggers?
I typed that last sentence because it is my view on much of the commentary I've read, for example ideas that men transition to become elite sports people, that trans women are predators hanging out in womens bathrooms. I'm not saying all people have those views who disagree with the inclusion of trans people in single sex sports but there are a lot of people with those views.

I'll take your scientific points - I don't understand the specifics of human Physiology so it would be disingenuous to argue

I think you should ask a female centric board because you will get different answers and concerns.

Most men would have no issue playing against a transgender man born as a woman, but many women would have an issue competing against a transgender woman born as a man. Especially a transgender the size of Hannah Mouncey.
Speak for yourself

I don’t want to be out muscled by a man born as a woman 😂😂😂

If you know of any women centric boards that I may have not reached out to, I am all ears!
