Why would you call Vicky a hater, she said nothing against men who claim to be women, she simply expressed her opinion that (and these are my words summing up her point) xy chromosome people should compete against xy people and xx people should not have to compete against xy people. Using this phraseology we need not stumble over the words male, female, transgender or made up nomenclature such as gender fluid.
She has never coached or ran against a transgender, so even though she was a world class runner she has no unique perspective. It appears she made no effort to learn the proper teminology, focused on the idea that men are better runners and included some unrelated thoughts.
There was nothing mean-spirited about what she wrote, but it was kind of pointless.
Suppose she calmly refuses to be coerced into using the PC terminology? A heck of a lot of people would support her on that alone. Or worse, suppose she just calls these kids girls like some of the press has been doing? She focused on a common sense way to look at it.
