[If this post is in violation of any forum rules I apologize. This has been something on my mind since I first heard of it an just wanted to hear some opinions from around the vine.]
This is just what the title says. Apparently there is/was a male by the name of Boyd Burton who underwent a sex change operation around the age of 30 I believe and is now currently competing as a woman under the name Fallon Fox against natural born women in the sport of mixed martial arts (think Ultimate Fighting for those who are unfamiliar).
I do not want to get into my personal views on a person's decision to do something like that to themselves but from a competitive/sportsmanship perspective I just cannot wrap myself around any understanding of how this can be considered in any way fair and inarguable.
I especially would like any input from anyone who is a fight fan, or fan of any sport, who also has a decent understanding of human biochemistry.
Thank you for reading.
