Athletes’ rights expert and philosophy prof: Biological males having an athletic advantage is only a ‘social perception’

Now philosophy professors are "experts" on biology.

A philosophy professor and expert on athletes’ rights:

USA Powerlifting’s response to transgender athletes is head-spinning. The thing about all this talk equating hormone replacement therapy to doping, and the threat to “biological females,” and the “unfair advantages” of “male puberty,” is that it’s based entirely on social perceptions of gender.

“There’s absolutely no scientific evidence at all that supports their position,” said Rachel McKinnon, an expert on athletes’ rights and a professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston, and a world champion track cyclist to boot.

When we shove the concept of athletic ability—strength, for instance—into the same black-and-white binary that we try to put gender into, we’re wrong. There is no stark line separating what men can do athletically and what women can. Some women, in fact, are bigger, faster, and stronger than some men.

Guess which one is Rachel McKinnon:

So why do we divide men's and women's sports?  Let's just have sports and see how well this thing does.

This guy is obviously on another planet. You don't need any degree in education to to be able to discern the difference between male and female physiology. He is lives in his own reality.

I am almost ashamed to have a degree in philosophy........ I am reminded of Bugs Bunny's comment:  "What a maroon"........
