Every sport is male sport | Madison Smith | The Critic Magazine

Up until very recently, one of the main arguments for not preventing boys who say they are girls from competing in girls’ sports was that it would be to resolve a problem that “doesn’t actually exist”.

But the problem — males dominating women’s sports — does exist. If the public is unaware of the scale of males’ infiltration of women’s sport, it is because the media only covers individual stories, usually with gushing praise for the male athletes’ stunning bravery in deciding to compete against women. They never give the whole picture: that in a huge swath of sports — from rugby to cricket, cycling to mixed martial arts — males are competing against, dominating, and sometimes injuring their female opponents.
