Forums - Sports Discussion - Will DOPING be more prevalent in Women's Sports with the the entry of transgendered females?

Just my thought.

Since doping has been pretty well discussed. Will it hurt the balance of the competition between women? Will more female athletes resort to doping or harder drugs just to keep up with the competition?

What's your point, OP? That hormones can be considered doping and such the percentage goes up, or that transgender females are better suit for sports than females and that will force the later to undergo doping?



I don't know but I still think it's weird that male-to-female athletes are allowed to compete against naturally born females. It seems to me like they have quite an advantage physically speaking. I guess it's not a problem until a situation arises.



The physical advantage of males is in most sports negligible or even non-existent. You could just mix alot of the sports.

i really doubt this, i wouldn't bet my money on federer or djokovic losing to serena in 5 sets match.

What are you talking about? Care to explain what you mean by "most sports"? And what sports could be mixed? If we look at some sports where athletism isn't the main factor, like shooting, darts or snooker...even in these sports women cannot compete against men at all, so what the hell are you talking about? What obvious thing I'm missing, please tell me.

 

edit: Equestrian is one of the very few sports where women can compete against men and that's only because the horse plays the most dominant part in the performance and biomechanically the horse works independently.

edit2: There are already rules in many sports how athletes are classified either a male or a female, so this has been already thought out.



I cannot imagine toilet-free life.

Kebabs have a unique attribute compared to other consumables. To unlock this effect you need to wolf down a big ass kebab really fast, like under 10 minutes or so and wait for the effect to kick in. If done correctly your movements should feel unbelievably heavy to the point where you literally cannot move at all.

Wait, transgender women can compete against natural women? That doesn't sound fair to the women really, it's putting them at a disadvantage in their own competition

Because shooting, darts and snooker are "traditionally male sports". But from footbal to sprinting, the real physical difference isn't that big.



Wait, transgendered females can compete in sports with regular females now? Fuck that shit! That's an obvious advantage they have. Which idiot came up with that idea?

I dunno about that. The womens 100m record is 10.49 seconds, to put that in to perspective out of the 23 men that ran in the 2012 Olympics 100m semi finals the slowest time was 10.31 seconds. That means the fastest woman ever wouldn't have even been in the top 23 in the mens competition, let alone had a chance at a medal.

Go to more physical sports and I expect that difference would become even larger. Women couldn't hope to compete at the top level in sports such as Rugby or Boxing. Sure some women are far better at sport than some men could ever be, but when it comes to the highest level the men are just out of reach.
