No she doesn't think that since she brought up, multiple times that she believes due to hormone therapy that woman who transitioned would have comparable muscle mass and to women born with a woman body. Her point throughout has been the body of both women being made the same due to chemical therapy and with that starting point them both training and weight lifting as an athlete would they should be on fair ground to fight each other.

I still disagree but I think her point was understandable and that she wasn't just arguing for arguing's sake as some in this thread seem to think
