The movement for “equality” has apparently inspired transgender athletes to join teams of their preferred gender. And that often means biological males are competing against biological females on women’s teams. Physiologically speaking, there’s a gender gap between men and women that cannot be erased.
For example, when it comes to running, men are generally faster than women. As the 2015 edition of Runner’s World explained, “At every distance up to the marathon, the gap between men’s and women’s world record times is nine to 10 percent – and it’s a similar or even higher percentage among recreational runners.” So why do men have some athletic advantages over women?
Ohio University biological sciences lecturer Chris Schwirian told Runner’s World: “Faster men’s times for 100 to 800 meters are mostly due to men, on average, having greater muscle mass – and a larger portion of it is fast-twitch, which allows them to generate greater force, speed and anaerobically produced energy. At all distances beyond 800 meters, the main reason for the gap is men’s higher aerobic capacity [VO2max], on average, which is due to their typically having less body fat, more hemoglobin and muscle mass, and larger hearts and lungs than women.” On average, men have longer and larger bones, which gives them mechanical advantages over women, since they have greater leverage, increased height and larger frames to support muscle. Their bones are also more dense, and they have tougher ligaments, making them less prone to sports injury.
Since these physical and physiological factors give most men a clear competitive edge in sports, is it fair or even safe for biological males – with larger muscle mass, hearts and lungs and greater strength, acceleration and speed – to compete against girls and women?

🇦🇺 Sydney harbour is absolutely beautiful! Known as one of the most iconic sights in the country, it’s full of attractions and things to do. My personal favourite is the bridge climb! Thanks for sharing @blondeshooter
I haven’t been posting but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been shooting and meeting some really cool people, like @jazhuggins
- a producer at triple j, charismatic and self assured. This shot was towards the end of the shoot, and Jazmine was becoming more comfortable. I like this one because she is relaxed, confident and doing something visually striking while being herself.
Another one from the birthday night!🎉🍻 -2 of my faves😭😭
Do you need a holiday? Does a mini-break sound good to you? Want to win a family break staying at Sydney's newest hotel?!?!? #YesYesYessssss
The brand new Four Points by Sheraton Sydney is rethinking the family experience. But more than just price alone, the recent design-led revival of the surrounding Broadway and Chippendale area has made this neighbourhood the latest sweet spot for foodies and families alike. 🙌🏻
The hotel overall is a study in clean lines and lacquered black surfaces, with two hundred and ninety seven minimalist guest rooms and forty five suites, that—despite the somewhat spartan design—feel totally appropriate. In other words, there is pure elegance in it’s simplicity.
And can we just take a moment to reflect on how comfy that bed looks?!?!?! #TimeForANapPlease

Rolled rice noodles and pork. 👌🏻🙆🏻♀️
Good vibes and good burgers! Located in a quiet spot in Alexandria.
As much as I appreciate the recent rain for the farmers (and giving me a reason to wear gumboots), I’m keen for the return of summer beach weekends to work on my tan 😎 #sickofbeingtofu
Butterfly pea panna cotta with the oh so satisfying wobble 🦋💜🍮
VEINY • Bondi’s shores doing what they do best! Let’s hope this warm weather is here to stay, it’s been bloody beaut for a Monday! 🧡🧡
Some children don’t like to have paint on their face but to see their excitement when you can offer an alternative is just beautiful. Look at little Tulip here, she just loved these pretty flowers on her arm 💕🌹🌷🌺💐
Obligatory "I'm at IKEA!" photo 😂 If you haven't taken one of these, have you really been to IKEA? 😁

Mondays require chocolate pretzel fingers with cream.
I took a shot before this and liked the blue but felt it there was no contrasting colour. Turned on my headlights and the shot was complete.
Definitely at an odd stage with photographing ATM.
