maybe not in this thread, and I don't think you should be expected to defend a statement you haven't made. but this is a VERY common comment that shows up in basically every single discussion about transgender athletes.

Unfortunately so, Rob... Together with "male advantage"

I wihs it weren't the case though. But if anything, the people in this thread seem to be more willing to educate themselves, and listen to first-hand knowledge. If not as 'truth' than at least as "ok, so this is how it is for them" and "oh, so this is what they experience"

Laura, why do you put quotes around "male advantage."

Because I am quoting a comment that would be made. By using quotes around it, I am distinguisging between my words and "the quoted text".
I am not using quotes to "pretend" or "question validity"

You had a PDGA Player Rating of 874 in December. The tour standards determine when a professional player can be fully reclassified as an Amateur:

A professional male player over 40 must be rated less than 935 to be reclassified as an Amateur. If you were a male who was 49 or less, the PDGA would approve the reclassification with your 874 rating.

A professional female player under 40 must be rated less than 875 to be reclassified as an Amateur player. If you were under 40 and fully transitioned to female when you petitioned, the PDGA would approve the reclassification with your 874 rating.

A professional female 40 and older must be rated less than 825 to be reclassified as an Am Player.


I only have two questions for you:

Were you classified as a male or female when you petitioned the PDGA to reinstate your amateur status?

How old were you when you when the PDGA reinstated your amateur status?

I only have two questions for you:

Were you classified as a male or female when you petitioned the PDGA to reinstate your amateur status?

How old were you when you when the PDGA reinstated your amateur status?

?!?!?!?!
Where does this come from?!?!?!
Is it because I have won events in Pro divisions? Here's a newsflash for you, outside North America, C tier events may be 0% payout. See PDGA International Guide.
You only lose Amateur Status if you accept cash in a Pro division when placing above the payout cut line.

Question 1. I never asked for Pro to Am reclassification. I didn't need to.
Until the day before yesterday (when TD report for last weekend's even had been submitted. I now have retro-actively been made pro per tournament end date, Sept 1st 2019) I have NEVER BEEN Pro.
Nor, for your information, have I ever declined cash in order to retain my Am Status.

Question 2. See Answer to question 1.

I have only petitioned the PDGA for a gender-reclassification (male to female), early 2019, after knowing I'd tick all boxes (per Dec 24th 20-8), and was granted that March 15th, 2019.

"Dec 24th 20-8" should be "Dec 24th 2018".

Well, do you question the validity of males having an inherent advantage over females?

Well, did you read the thread? This is well-covered ground.

You may choose to agree or disagree, but the question has been asked and answered more than once.

Nah. Too many words, man. Much easier to ask a dimple question and hopefully get a simple answer.
