considering that it's a manifest everyday fact that males are faster and stronger than females you should really use that as a litmus test for somebody peddling bullshit to you

>> No.12766746

Right now it might be true of those that are currently trans athletes.
Just by stereotyping, you would expect trans athletes (m2f) right now to be the most beta of the males.
As this trans athlete trend becomes more normalized, you can predict males will start gaming the system.
There are already incentives for males to pretend to be women without athletics (scholarships, admissions quotas, hiring quotas, etc.).
Add to these athletics scholarships and the glory from winning trophies/medals and the incentive to game the system will only increase.

They are already doing that.

They probably do something stupid like taking the mean, which is drawn down on the trans side for obvious reasons.

>> No.12766828

My point is a small observed effect right now will only get worse.
My line of reasoning is:
Detect small effect -> Hold your horses
Their line of reasoning is:
Detect small effect -> No big deal; keep going

I'm all for trannies playing in female sports. Women sports are terribly boring, most of them need some pounds extra of muscle mass and grey matter to make it interesting.

Yes, generalising is bad, but they sure are taking undue advantage of the situation, it is indeed a loophole.

>> No.12767004

Isn't that claim saying that they don't even have an advantage at the first dose of transition, i.e. men have no advantage over women generally.

>in contemporary medial practice, there is in ultimo no single solid biological criterion for the determination for sex, so when needed for a specific purpose, the best solution seems to be to adopt a criterion that best serves the purpose for which it is needed
This argument extends to where rather than just arguing trans women should compete in women's sports they should argue that all people compete in the same category

Based. The only way out of this pathetic society we have today is to accelerate.

>> No.12767318

Assume the no advantage claim is true. This means Hou Yifan or Alexandra Botez can simply identify as male and will be able to compete with Magnus Carlson or Hikaru Nakamura now. We know this isn't true, chess is male dominated because men have an inherent biological advantage in their endurance with respect to chess. In general women have higher pain tolerance because they bare children which makes them better in ultra long distance running see someone like Courtney Dauwalter. But, in running it's all about pain tolerance. Chess takes persistent focus and reasoning over a pretty long period. Men have the advantage there because their combination of endurance/reasoning at the same time was honed by hunting. Hunting is much more like chess in that you have to predict your prey's next move to catch him. But the hunt can be long, so humans also have great endurance. Women just need to run if we were being chased preferably faster for longer because again they hold the kids.

>> No.12767542

chess isn't a sport four-eyes

>women have a higher pain tolerance

>> No.12767579

That's actually true, for the same reason women have more endurance in general. It's the way their muscles are constructed. Look up the "man flu". It's pretty well documents us men feel more pain than women. Women are fairly numb to pain, which is probably why they like it during sex so much.

The women's top recorded mile record of all time is further from the men's 25th best than the men's 25th best is from the men's 1st. Weight lifting is even more separated. There have been a total of 22 dunks in the entire history of the WNBA. This is less than typically done by any random team any random year in just the regular season of the NBA. When women were allowed to try for placement in special operations squads, literally not one was able to pass the standards. They literally lowered the requirements just to address this, which is hilarious and incredible and would seem to require one to swallow a hard truth but still exactly descriptive of political culture at the time. Serena Williams, almost definitely the best female tennis player of all time, rated by the universal rating system used in tennis for men and women, ranks somewhere near an okay B college male athlete. Serena once said she could beat any man.

>> No.12767649

Priorly #1 ranked John Mcenroe famously she was the "best female tennis player of all time but would't be top 800 of men and that he at 50ish could probably beat her." She was incensed but responded by saying she would be maybe within top 500, and that she could beat Mcenroe but would lose 6-0, 6-0 to Andy Murray (current top #1 at the time). People in response to this regularly bring up Billy Jean King's game, which is the literal only example they can think of. Billy was the prime of her career top #1 women's tennis player in the world and was challenged by a priorly top male who had been retired for thirty years and was 50-60 at the time. She ended up winning, ultimately proving nothing but that it takes the top women's tennis athlete to even beat a retired borderline elderly male player a solid but given the respective ages/career points, pretty laughable 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. When men and women play mixed doubles, women can't even return serves. Women's football teams (including present World Cup champions) are regularly wrecked by men's 15s teams (teenagers). People always cope and say, "it was a scrimmage...etc." but they usually don't even score a goal and lose something like 5-0, which is an absolutely absurd level of domination no matter how you contextualize it. Women are better at many things, and as far as sports go, may even have an advantage with ultra marathon running/swimming, but they are 100% disadvantaged at the extremes of athletic competition against men. It isn't even arguable and anyone who tries is probably a liberal arts major who never played or watched sports in their life.

Obviously. Trannies lose all their male strength advantage after ~1 year of taking estrogen. If you started injecting yourself with estrogen, you'd notice a loss of muscle pretty quickly too.

This one is surprising. What is the explanation?

>> No.12767993

probably faster twitch muscles (the same that give rise to strength). It's the same reason blacks dominate olympic sports. Consider autocross, a pure reaction based sport. men dominate women so hard they need their own division. The best NASCAR driver, as I recall, is a black dude, despite almost no blacks in the sport.

A scanner should be able to tell us if it comes from the nervous system or the muscles.

>> No.12768037

This is a different study but goes after the same "why."

It is kind of a false/incomplete answer though because men also perform significantly better on eye tests to spot movement than women. So the answer is basically
probably both neurological and body-mechanic-physiological.

Do you know if that changes with hormones? Sexuality does, so I wonder if this kind of stuff does too or if it stays the same.

Women also use thousands more words a day on average than men. Skeletal/tendon strength does not change, nor heart-directed O2 stats or skeleton shape optimized for directing force vs. having babies. No studies have been done to . Men who identify as women overwhelmingly are sexually attracted to women. If their brains are woman, why is this difference so. Why is the only demographic which comes close to their rates of suicidality psychotics and people with profound mental illness (moreso than Jews in Nazi Germany and Blacks during Jim Crow/slavery)? Muscle definition can be changed but people are more than tubes through which hormones flow. I would be UNBELIEVABLY surprised if women became 25-75% better at eye tests sculpted by evolution across millions of years by injecting themselves with testosterone. Men and women are different. Get over it.

I wonder what's the biological mechanism for this. Does training with testosterone permanently make your muscles better somehow?

I literally don't even know who made the comic but its essence is true, which when considering a matter, is a lot more important to me.
If using a "fascist's" (doubt they are even actually fascist, term has lost all seriousness from brianlets calling lukewarm republicans fascists) comic is bad, why continue propagating the academic legacy of a failed academic's failed study who, to try to prove gender was a real idea distinct from sex, had a sexually reassigned boy simulate sex acts with his brother as a child?

Fun fact: the first publication mentioning gender came from a French researcher, who directly quoted the works of Mengele in concentration camps.
