    Lance Armstrong is the example of (undetected) american cheating, Serena gets a "Therapeutic Use Exemption" from the WADA for corticosteroids prednisone and prednisolone, and another TUE for a narcotic painkiller oxycodone, while looking like she is on TRT yet Maria Sharapova is banned for Meldonium use... a clear double standard and it took Russian hackers to expose the WADAs fraud. Phelps not on steriods? come on! hes running the same blood transfusion BS as Lance. As for transgender athletes there should be a separate trans category and scrutiny placed on the trans athletes that don't support it, those who dont support it are the cheaters those are the ones who know their physical gendered attributes are the only factor involved in their wins.

    All sports are "artificial" activities and  have rules which govern them .

    If spectators wanted to see women compete against men in any sport , they would do so -- but ,in general , they don't .

    People want to see "fair contests -- and that means women against women ,and men against men -- not men or women against "hybrids" ,which make a nonsense of the event .

    I'm sure some people somewhere , would pay to watch a Flyweight boxer take on an Heavyweight -- but 99% wouldn't .

    Russia was partially banned from the 2016 Summer Olympics and fully banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics and is fully banned from the 2020 Summer Olympics as punishment for state-sponsored doping.

    A transgender man would have an obvious physical advantage competing as a woman. Even the South African woman athlete Caster Semenya, who has unusually high testosterone levels which have affected her physical development which gives her an unfair advantage, has been banned from competing in certain events.

    Why do you assume Olympic athletes are conservative? Is it because they find success by hard work, determination and conviction? How many female athletes pretend to be males so they can compete with males.....not too many, huh? Most are males pretending to be females or as I see it -cheaters!...…

    Why do democrats blame all their shortcomings on Russia?

    Transgender athletes need their own Olympics...… call it Extra Special Olympics!

    Transgender athletes can compete, but it's unfair to biological women to be expected to compete against biological men.

    You don't even care that a "transgender athlete" is a male competing against females do you?

    Well, Russia was sanctioned for it so people did care about it. 

    Men and women have different physical make up.  If a MtF competes against women, that MtF would probably have an unfair physical advantage.
