Bearden sees trans women who compete with unlimited levels of natural testosterone as dopers and cheaters while McKinnon says looking at the issue that way only furthers the oppression of transgender people.


While I can see that both arguments have valid points, there's a part of me that says that if McKinnon doesn't see the advantage of a higher testosterone level, than she should just compete on the men's circuit.

It seems to be a problem with no easy answer. Could it be that there will be trans women and trans men events in the Olympics in addition to women's and men's events?
