We are already seeing where this leads with the Andraya Yearwood debacle. This is outrageous. FOR EVERY MALE, HORMONES OR NOT, WHO TAKES A WOMEN’S SPACE ON A SPORTS TEAM, THERE IS A WOMAN WHO HAS NO WHERE TO GO BECAUSE SHE MOST LIKELY WILL NOT MAKE THE MEN’S TEAM.

“We take people at their word. We register people as they specify themselves to be,” said Tom Grilk…
