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?

Currently in Miami for a long af layover eating the saddest-looking breakfast of my life, wishing I was eating this instead. 🍔
It was totally worth the travel time to @sonofabakerau 🙌🏼❤️
NOTE: You do not need to shoot Panasonic Lumix to attend this event. We're excited to announce that alongside Panasonic Lumix we are hosting our first ever Intermediate Video Workshop with filmmaker Dave Katague. Dave is a multi disciplined content producer with expertise in graphic design, photography, video editing and well known for his video work. The workshop will cover how to create sequences, lighting set ups and physical techniques to shoot video. In collaboration with Panasonic Lumix we will have a large range of cameras available at the workshop for those who want to explore the power of Panasonic Lumix cameras for filmmaking. However you are welcome to bring your own gear too. For anyone who is looking to take their video to the next level this is a fantastic opportunity to expand your knowledge in theory and practical.

So blessed to live in Sydney! - - - Sometimes you get so used to the place you live that you forget to appreciate how blessed you are. Today I went for a walk, looked around and reminded myself how lucky I am to live at this beautiful place. - - - It’s weird sometimes, we travel far away from home and certain places capture our heart and soul. Sydney has been definitely one of those places for me and I will appreciate and enjoy every day until I move on🌎🙌 - - - #sydney #australia #beautifulsydney #bronte #brontebeach #bondibeach #sydneybondi #sydneybeach #sydneytravel #travelmore #brontecoastalwalk #coastalwalk #sydneycoastalwalk #bestbeaches #travelphotography #beautifulplaces #travelblogger #nextdestination #explorer #traveldude #traveltheworld #onelife #sunsetsydney #sydney_insta #sydneylocal #sydneyaustralia #sydneyphotographer #traveler #sydneyfolk #lifeisgood

🇦🇺 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 📸
Spot my wife (@caramespinosa ). Also, I’m back!
Author James Bartholomew believes capitalism has been the economic system that has allowed humanity to flourish and points to the horrors of communism as a comparative example. • Watch him argue his case at our upcoming #IQ2OZ debate 'Capitalism Is Destroying Us’ on Tuesday Oct 23rd @cityofsydney Town Hall. We’d ❤️ to see you there! • For tickets jump to the link in our bio 🎟 • • • • #capitalism #government #conservative #libertarian #socialism #capitalist #socialist #communism #economics #politics #liberty #endthefed #anarchy #taxationistheft #liberal #anarchist #democracy #communist #conservatives #sydneylocal #nsw #newsouthwales #cityofsydney #australiagram #igerssydney #sydneylife #sydneyfolk #visitnsw #sydney_insta
In Parliament House, Canberra tonight courtesy of @frdc_au and their 2018 National Fish and Chips Awards where the prestigious award is crowned to the best fish and chips shop in Australia. In NSW, these lovely ladies from @beachstforster from Forster, NSW were crowned as the best fish and chips shop in NSW so the next time you are up Forster check them out! Speaking with the judges and @frdc_au today, it’s a gruelling judging process on aspects of service, knowledge and commitment, understanding of sustainability at all levels, presentation, information and displays and cookery technique and of course value. Well done @beachstforster I’m definitely dropping in next time I’m up In Forster ... . . . • • • • • #beachstreetforster #sydney #portmacquarie #ilovesydney #sydneyrestaurants #sydneylocal #nsw #sydneyeats #seeaustralia #sydneyfood #seafood #newsouthwales #cityofsydney #australiagram #igerssydney #sydneylife #sydneyfoodie #sydneyharbour #sydneyfolk #visitnsw #sydneyoperahouse #sydney_insta #sydneycommunity #aussie #operahouse #shangrilasydney #sydneyfoodshare #seetastedo #sydneyfishmarket #parliamenthouse
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😭😭

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

Super nice seeing the sunshine return to our Harbour city these last few days (even if there were a few crazy storms in between) 😎💛 . If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm. — Frank Lane
Mondays require chocolate pretzel fingers with cream. Yassssssssss @wildflourau
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.
Need I say more. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
