I just can't see how the formative years of being a man with all of the physiological advantages can't still be a huge advantage post transition.

I won’t pretend to know the answer to whether trans women should be allowed to compete in elite sports. However, British Cycling asked Emily to prove that she had reduced testosterone levels for a period of 12 months in order to be eligible to race. Once that 12 months was up they did a massive u-turn and suspended their transgender policy. That doesn’t sit right with me…
