The results are in and it’s common sense for the win: Male athletes have a biological advantage over female athletes that persists even when gender-confused men take female hormones. A study published last month in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that, despite spending a year on hormone therapy, men who identify as women still “retain an advantage in muscle mass, volume, and strength over female controls.” Before suppressing testosterone and adding estrogen, men were able to perform “31% more push-ups and 15% more sit-ups in 1 min and ran 1.5 miles 21% faster than their female counterparts.” Those advantages all but disappeared after two years of therapy, but males still held a 12 percent running speed advantage, vindicating those who object to such men competing with actual females in sports like track and field.
