Would you feel that a person with a Y chromosome competing against your daughter was a fair and equitable competition?

    No, and yet why divide based on sex or gender anyway? There are unusually strong/large females (born that way) with unusually high levels of testosterone, and there are unusually weak/small males. There are also people born somewhere between the two sexes, and I'm not talking about people who have physically altered themselves in any way voluntarily.

    It's seems like the fairest things to do would be:

    1. throw everyone together and let the best person or any sex/gender win

    2. categorize people by more specific criteria than sex or gender, kind of like they do with featherweight verses heavyweight fighters, but with more extensive criteria

    Competition is ironic in that we only want to compete against people we can beat, isn't it?
