    How about a little common sense here.
    Birth gender for competitive sports.

    I perceive this young person to above the weight class of any of her competitors.

    If there were a 250lb girl...you would not have her wrestle a 136 lb girl just to have someone for her to wrestle.

    Im not arguing against your point, but there are non-masculine males that could not compete with some of the girls.

    Obviously wrong but apparently not correctable by those in power.

    Not sure what point you are trying to make. Everybody wrestles by weight class.

    The difference is that the one allowed to take PEDs has won the state championship two years in a row. By defeating girls who were not permitted to take PEDs.
    Thanks from Sassy

    Regardless they are still males.

    Are you sure you read the OP article? He is competing against people of his birth gender.

    Ridiculous... He should be able to compete against his OWN, CURRENT gender, not his PAST gender...

    Good to see some of you actually did read and comprehend the article.

    I do have to say that it's an interesting take to consider testosterone as a Performance Enhancing Drug (PED). Kinda makes you wonder a little though. Or at least it should. At this point, if you're not questioning some basic assumptions you probably had/have, you have not been paying attention.

    Testosterone supplementation is an option for men experiencing low testosterone. It can be delivered in several ways: injections into the muscle every few weeks; patches or gels applied to the skin; a patch that is applied inside the mouth; or pellets that are inserted under the skin of the buttocks. Those who have experienced or are at a high risk of prostate cancer should not use testosterone therapy.

    You're right. And if there's no one in your weight class, you wrestle at the next class higher.

    I think my class was always 112 or 119, but I always had to wrestle at 126 or 135. It sucked. I never got to wrestle at my own class, not once. I did not stay on the wrestling team long.
