It’s shaping up to be a banner Women’s History Month.

Last week, Leigh Finke, a recently elected trans rep from Minnesota was honored by USA Today as one of its “Women of the Year,” while champion cyclocross rider Hannah Arensman quit after losing to a trans woman.

At this point, the trans debate has touched nearly every niche competitive pursuit, including cycling, weightlifting, disc golf and high school volleyball and basketball.
