Ellen Page: It's time to defend transgender people

I am genuinely not trying to be an asshole, maybe I just need someone to explain it better, but I am missing the reason for the outrage at the transgender sports argument... Don't transgender, particularly FtM, have a huge genetic advantage when it comes to participating in female sports and arguable disadvantage when participating in make sports? Isn't the whole point of sports to pit yourself against your equals and determine who is better?

I don't believe that excluding transgender individuals from participating in sports is the answer, that's neither fair nor reasonable, but what if there was a separate league or division? Is that something trans athletes would support?

Help me better understand the issue here, as someone who supports the LGBTQ+ community I want to be able to give a reasonable explanation to people who aren't as supportive.
