  1. Let them take the steroids so all have same Testosterone levels or make a separate division for these athletes. Banning these athletes is ridiculous. Why would someone suppress the body’s natural phenomenon when she thinks it’s normal. Let the female athletes take medications to improve their performance who thinks they naturally can’t defeat opponents like Symenia.

  2. …..The ONLY fair ruling! How utterly ridiculous to expect normal women who work so hard to win, to compete against a “He/She”….
