@92Y8F6N answered…5mos

The issue is far too complex and nuanced to warrant a yes/no answer

@92Y896LLiberal answered…5mos

Yes as long as any medical procedures are completed prior to puberty so male hormones do not increase male physique traits

@92XVPW5Green answered…5mos

No, and make a separate category specifically for transgender people to participate in

No, because biological make-up of the sexes goes beyond hormones into skeletons and organs. These are unable to be changed regardless of hormone therapy.
