They left off the "in the sport of their chosen gender." The phraseology "Do you think transgender athletes should or should not be allowed to compete in their chosen sport" makes it an implied fact that transgender females are actual females. Similar to the phrase from the 1970s "Don't be fuelish" implies a fact there was a permanent fuel shortage.

EXACTLY...."chosen gender" would have been more precise....."chosen" alone makes no sense.

Ever notice that MEN can not compete in womens sports but trannies and women can compete in both men and womens sports.

There really is no such thing as "Men's Sports." Anyone can play on the Men's team if they are good enough. There is a cutout for women's sports because otherwise woman would not be able to play. If there was a female placekicker who could put the ball through the uprights anytime the team crossed the 50 yard line, an NFL team would hire her immediately.

They only ask if a transgendered should be able to compete. It didn't ask if they should be able to compete against women.

This. It's market based. If a chick could kick a ball and win games, you're hired. They can't. It takes a massive amount of leg strength and frankly size to kick at the professional level.

I was an all state athlete in track and even dicking around kicking footballs I'd be lucky to hit a 40 yarder. They get made fun of, but it's fucking hard to do. I don't think the average viewer understands the skill level of a NFL kicker. They're just jealous they get paid $500k+ (or more) to kick a football.
