In letzter Zeit lese ich häufiger Berichte über Männer, die sich selbst als Frauen identifizieren und im Damensport im Vergleich mit ihren weiblichen Konkurrentinnen glänzen.
Hier mal ein paar Beispiele:

Transgender woman wins international weightlifting title amid controversy over fairness
Laurel Hubbard made history this weekend by becoming the first transgender female to win an international weightlifting title for New Zealand. But her victory in the over-90-kilogram division, in which she lifted a combined total of 268 kilograms (roughly 590 pounds) to best silver medalist Iuniarra Sipaia of Samoa by 19 kilograms (roughly 42 pounds), was not without controversy.
Despite a year’s worth of blood tests showing Hubbard had no more testosterone running through her veins than any of the other female weightlifters competing in the Australian International this weekend, some of those Hubbard beat questioned the fairness of the competition.
“If I was in that category I wouldn’t feel like I was in an equal situation,” two-time Olympian Deborah Acason, who competes at the 75-kilogram level, told New Zealand news site Stuff. “I just feel that if it’s not even, why are we doing the sport?”

Was haltet ihr von dieser Entwicklung? Ist es in euren Augen fair, wenn Männer, die sich selbst als Frauen identifizieren in Wettkämpfen gegen Frauen antreten?
