The ongoing debate between the science and ethics of sport may have reached a tipping point in the case of Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas.

In a New York Times article, Dr Michael J. Joyner of the Mayo Clinic says that even with testosterone suppression, transgender athletes hold an advantage over biological females in the world of athletics.

“There are social aspects to sport, but physiology and biology underpin it, Testosterone is the 800-pound gorilla.” - Dr. Michael J. Joyner

Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty react to the writing in The New York Times. Joe says the arguement to allow Thomas to compete is absurd, but the woke crowd will have it's way with the NCAA.
