Given the recent interest stirred up on this, I wanted to find out was I missing something.

Has biology answered the question of whether lia Thomson the dude swimmer that stole a girls trophy (or any trans) is a woman? Is he a woman according to biology?

I read some interesting studies on the brains of those who are transgender. Seems those who consider themselves transgender brains are different, but not enough studies done yet to determine if that is a cause and effect.

So it seems brown Jackson would appeal to biology in vein to answer the question of transgenderism.

No leftists want to enlightened how biology shows what is a woman?

According to your new SCOTUS appointee, it's the go to source to know what a woman is.

So what does biology say about lia Thomas, is he a woman according to bio!ogy?

If she transitioned completely medically; she is a woman. It also depends on when she started since it takes at least 5 years to completely transition

But that is impossible because he can't change his chromosomes for starters not to mention no such thing as a uterus transplant etc.

Begging people to participate in your thread is not a good look.

Your deliberate ignorance of what all is involved in medically/surgically transitioning from male to female is as glaring as your bias.

Hint; Surgery isn’t the only thing involved.

And lots of women have their uteruses removed during hysterectomies. Do you think they’re no longer women? What about women who’s breasts are removed because of cancer in order to save their lives?

I think the proper answer here is that no matter what she is, she is obviously overqualified with physical advantages to be competing in a female swimming event.

A vagina isn't a uterus, which is much more involved. Plus, chromosomes.

You first.
I can't, I am ignorant on some things. That is why I am trying to get informed on this thread.

Our SCOTUS nominee seems to think biology can tell us if lia Thomas is a woman.

Well can it?
if so, how...and source?

"Woman" is not a biological term.

What determines your sex, balls or brain. I haven't seen anyone claim that Lia Thomas is mot biologically male. The question is apparently too nuanced for you to consider.

Oh no. You are being snotty when I am simply asking.
Tell me about this nuance. And how (if at all) does it answer my OP question?

If it doesn't, then can you?

She is a woman. She should not be allowed to compete
