For anyone who has seen a golf course, there are different starting points for men’s tees vs. women’s tees due to the obvious physical differences in gender. On average, men benefit from years of having higher testosterone, which builds more muscle. Men are often taller and have bigger hands, longer limbs, larger respiratory systems, and the list goes on.
Liberals continue to ignore these facts while pushing their social initiative to let biological males who identify as female to compete against women.
Professional transgender golfer Mianne Bagger blasted this idea by explaining it’s completely unfair.
“It’s crossed the line, in my view, it really has. It’s a slap in the face to women,” Bagger said. “Anyone with any basic understanding on biology and the difference between men and women knows it’s ridiculous.”
“It’s male puberty that really grants boys and men that physical performance in sport,” she told News.com.au. “And I think it’s irrefutable — it’s ridiculous to suggest otherwise.”
Bagger says it’s “utter rubbish” the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided to drop its policies in November that required trans athletes to be required to undergo “medically unnecessary” procedures or treatment.
Now biological males can even compete in sporting events without undergoing hormone level modification.
Bagger, who is 55 years old, started hormone replacement therapy 30 years at age 25. In 1995, just three years later, Bagger had sex reassignment surgery.
Bagger began competing against amateur golfers in the late 1990s and won the 1999 South Australian State Amateur tournament.
“In everyday society, of course we want an inclusive, egalitarian [society]. We want equality, lack of discrimination, and of course every single person should have equal access to life and services and work in society. Of course, we all want that, and so do I,” she said.
“In sport? It’s different. Sport is about physical ability. It’s not just about discrimination, it’s not just about equality and equal access. It is a physical ability. Now, if you’ve got one group — males — that are on average stronger, taller, faster, as opposed to women, there has to be a divide. There has to be a division.”

She expressed her support for an Australian lawmaker’s bill that would prohibit trans women to be excluded from female sports. The bill would have excluded Bagger from playing female sports as a trans woman, according to News.com.au.
“These days, [the dynamic] has crept into what’s called self ID or self identification: male-bodied people presenting as women, who live as women, with varying degrees of medical intervention and in some degrees, no medical intervention, which is just — it’s crossed the line, in my view, it really has … It’s a slap in the face to women,” Bagger said when asked why she supported the bill.
She told the news outlet it was important to note “the difference between general society and sport, particularly really high-level sport.
She added she was fine with being called a “hypocrite” over her stance.
The Australian bill introduced by Tasmanian Liberal Senator Claire Chandler was dubbed the “save women’s sport” bill. According to The Guardian, it would amend the Sex Discrimination Act in the country to “clarify” that single-sex sports based on biological sex were not a discriminatory action.
