    If there is doubt make them show proof when declaring. Fair is fair.

    I worked with one for 7 years before I retired, Fred became Sue the company had to build a unisex bathroom to solve the problem. All our ladies bathroom's were locked and only woman had keys to them and the woman made it clear they didn't want shim to use their restrooms, and the men did the same. It brought in a new Pa. birth certificate showing it was now a female. The odd thing about this fruit cake was he was married with 3 grown kids. I ask her once why the change and the reply was he always wanted to be a lesbian, also cross dressed since the age of 5 her father was a medical doctor and mother a clinical psychologist.

    The olympic/international committees don't care about anything but chromosomes. You are classed as you were born and they could care less what you look like or want to look like or your lifestyle.

    Fair's fair indeed and there are a couple shooting ATA in the wrong class. But they aren't very good so who cares?

    This subject was addressed "officially" .. maybe you should call your delegate and ask what the ATA response would be.

    FlaLagarto is right...there is an official position. I happen to shoot with Dave Kaiser, the past president - he was telling us about it.

    back in the day, there was a colorado (I think he said) shooter who had the big change. All the lady shooters were pitching a hissy, so the EC had to address it.

    He said if they have a drivers license that says F, they're a lady, end of story.

    It was some years ago and as I recall it was a complaint out of Colorado - a male shooter (a State Champion I think) tried to enter as a lady (post op). There was a protest filed with the ATA and the EC at the time would not get involved. So I think they let it go – the shooter was able to be a lady shooter.

    The ATA web site used to have all the minutes from meetings going back more than 10 years but I don’t seem to find them now. Not surprised, the current EC does not see any need in keeping shooters involved or informed.

    The Colorado shooter shot well in the women's class at first with a build like Leo, but after a couple of years of female hormones she/it had lost her muscle mass and looked like a fat spider with scrawny arms and legs wearing a bonnett. Her scores then dropped down to normal female class. Her girlfriend was fairly attractive.


    Monk offered to perform inspections on the members of the Women's class, but fair is fair; he felt he should inspect them all! AJ
