Anony Mous (and others), https://www.babycenter.com/pregnancy/your-baby/fetal-development-your-babys-genitals-and-urinary-system_40005752 shows specifically that at 6 weeks boy and girl babies in the womb has have the same external reproductive appearance. Yes changes develop later, but according that source (and other sources I have seen) the differences don't appear before 6 weeks. My comment was thus factual, informative, and intelligent.
Folks, also consider https://www.npr.org/2021/03/18/978716732/wave-of-new-bills-say-trans-athletes-have-an-unfair-edge-what-does-the-science-s . That article says the following.
'Often missing from the culture-war aspect of the debate is a focus on the type of questions that Dr. Eric Vilain has spent much of his career researching. Vilain, a pediatrician and geneticist who studies sex differences in athletes, says there are no good faith reasons to limit transgender women's participation in sports, especially at the high school level. Vilain has advised both the International Olympic Committee and the NCAA, and says these laws generally aren't based in scientific evidence, but rather "target women who have either a different biology or ... simply look different." '
Furthermore, if being a transgender woman (if born male) provides an unfair advantage, then why did the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Medical Commission produce guidelines (see the source I provided in an earlier post) saying that transgender people should be allowed to compete in sex specific events (such as ones for women only) if they meet specific criteria stated by the committee?
LoveUniHateExams and others, consider the following.
Testosterone in males is overwhelmingly produced in the testes. For proof of claim see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Testosterone . It says the following.
"The largest amounts of testosterone (>95%) are produced by the testes in men, while the adrenal glands account for most of the remainder. Testosterone is also synthesized in far smaller total quantities in women by the adrenal glands, thecal cells of the ovaries, and, during pregnancy, by the placenta. "
Perhaps some of you were not aware of that. But I was aware that testosterone in males is produced overwhelmingly in the testes, and that is part of the scientific knowledge I had when making my claims in my earlier posts.
Since the vast majority of the testosterone in biological men are produced in the testes, if a person born male later becomes transgender by having all of his testes removed (even if during adulthood) and takes estrogen injections and/or estrogen pills, and when tested has a testosterone level in the range accepted for competitive women's sports, what hormonal advantage (if any) is there for such a transgender athlete?
Furthermore, doesn't taking estrogen injections feminize the bodies of those born male and thus hinder their ability (relative to non-transgender biological males) to increase muscle mass? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5182227/ says the following.
"In transgender women, exogenous estrogen is used to help feminize patients, and anti-androgens are used as adjuncts to help suppress masculinizing features."
My comments in my posts in this forum topic thread were thus factual, informative, rational, and intelligent and based upon reliable sources of information.
