The discussion on whether transgender athletes, who have started life in a male body and transitioned to female, is super interesting.

I fully support transgendered athletes, as tbh, I kinda agree that the full construct of gender is more fluid than people think.
While I support these athletes, I can empathise with other athletes, mainly in the female competitions, as for as equal as we would like sexes to be, the case that men ( in most cases) have the capability to be stronger muscles that work for longer, which is great in athletics!
So, if we agree that both sides have a valid point and support them both, which I would assume is the case for ANYONE in the world of Athletics.

Why cant this issue be solved... I just dont see this huge problem the experts speak of.
The inability of @iaaforg or @Diamond_League to properly deal with this shows they cant think round the problem, or that they just dont care.
It looks like they prefer to run in circles talking about hormones and macro-differences in genders as opposed to finding a solution.
So, what is the easy solution?

Move to a system which works more like professional combat sports, with weight classes coming into play!

This does not mean that there is not a race where we have the grand WORLD champion while enabling more races and genuine equality!
Using weight divisions, we could have true equality with men and woman competing on equal playing fields based on quantitative data opposed to gender and hormones!

The kicker is, this instantly highlights who is being genuine and who is just being nasty to trans-people!
