Default Transgender player attains college basketball first

http://www.suntimes.com/sports/colle...all-first.html

Quote:
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The women’s basketball team at Mission College expected the bleachers to be full and the hecklers ready when its newest player made her home court debut.

In the days leading up to the game, people had plenty to say about 6-foot-6-inch, 220-pound Gabrielle Ludwig, who joined the Lady Saints as a mid-season walk-on and became, according to advocates, the first transsexual to play college hoops as both a man and a woman.
Simple question should S/he play?

Default Re: Transgender player attains college basketball first

The rules say she can because she takes female hormones, but to me it seems like she'd have the advantage of prior muscle gain as a man, even if it is hard to sustain it while taking hormones.

Rules say she can, so she should.

Not on the womens team. If he has testicles and a penis he is a man. It doesn't matter if he likes to play 'dress up'.

Even if he is taking hormones, he's already 6'6". How many women basketball players are that tall? Not many at all. So that is an advantage in itself.

Basketball is a physical game. Physically, he/she is a male. He/she should play with males. That being said, one transgender playing with the females isn't a really important issue.

The X and Y chromosomes that he was born with make it unfair for him to play women's bball.

I don't think anybody should be aloud to play women's basketball, definitely not women... maybe more men would be good for the sport

I don't consider transsexual men to be women. So no.

He would have an unfair advantage anyway.

I am not up to speed on this but I think transgender means surgical sex-change, meaning the testosterone-producing testicles would have been removed. is that correct? If so that would be a partial equalizer.

But his body and muscles were already developed to a point that he'd have a big physical advantage.

Very true. However it wouldn't automatically give him/her a sweet jump shot.

I hope the ladies manhandle the newcomer.

That's probably what shim argued that he was a woman trapped in man's body. So I guess he never was a man.
