"Gabrielle Ludwig, a 6-foot-6-inch transsexual player on Mission College's women's basketball squad, reflects on her return to college ball on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, in Santa Clara, Calif. Gabrielle Ludwig made sports history this month as a basketball player at a Northern California community college. The 50-year-old transsexual, Army veteran, father and Mission College freshman is believed to be the first hoopster to play college ball as both a man and a woman."
---------------------------------------


When I was in Advanced Biology in the 11 grade, Mrs. Tornwall, our teacher said that transexuals were not women but called them "a badly mutilated male." Genetically he/she is XY and his/her body structure and musculature is male which to me seems a bit unfair competing against women.

Not that I care all that much though. If everyone else is fine with it go for it. No one listens to me anyway.
