That goes without saying, because it's so stupidly obvious only an idiot would feel the need to point that out.

Never know in today’s society, I’ve been told there are no significant biological differences on reddit before.

Idk if you’re being downvoted b/c that doesn’t happen in this sub so people here haven’t seen it, but I will confirm that I have seen it argued all over reddit too. Especially wrt to sports, I’ve seen it stated as if fact that athletic performance isn’t significantly different between the two.

That kind of thinking has to be in the minority by a wide margin. It's better not to validate it by acknowledging it to begin with.

It may be only what a tiny minority thinks, but somehow they are powerful enough to provoke huge impacts. How the judge can believe that an assumed tendency toward depression and suicidality cancels out established physical differences in size and strength, I don’t know.

That is about transgender which is another thing.

No, the athletic differences between men & women due to biology are relevant; they doesn’t disappear when the word “transgender” is introduced.

They don't disappear when the word transgender is introduced but hormone therapy does change things quite a bit.
