The silver lining here is maybe we break away from gender classifications in sport and just have one competition for everyone.
How is that a silver lining? Gender classification is a good thing. Real women are slower than men. Gender classification means they can still compete.
Perhaps we can have a special new classification system that allows doping, fake women, cybernetics, and rocket packs. Pass the popcorn![/quote]
So you think there should be 2 classes? Biological men and biological women? What about Male-to-female transwomen and female-to-male transmen? Is that two more classificiations, or they not get to compete?
I think my solution is cleaner. 1 classification. Will there be fewer women competing? Probably, but you yourself said that they are slower than men.
