I am seeing more frequent stories about males (boys and men) – many of whom competed as males in male sports – choosing to compete in female sports.

How about we test their seriousness by proposing to eliminate the separate categories for girls’ and women’s sports? Rather than having males compete somewhat subtly against females, let’s bring it out into the open.
