Quite refreshing to see, especially as this is in a general sub, so perhaps more representative of the average person. And also bearing in mind that Reddit is mainly under 30s, who we are often told are much more "progressive" on such things.

And yep, true to form, the reddit thread has been blocked. Just as with Wikipedia, reddit moderating is full of TRAs

I know of literally nobody in real life who thinks that mixed sex sport is a good idea. I mentioned it to my (usually pretty woke) DBro when wanting the rugby this weekend. He thought I'd gone mad for even thinking that trans girls would be allowed to play rugby with girls. The more politicians who bring up this bullshit the better, imo. The public reaction might get them to actually think their ideas through or at least consider whether their TWAW mantra is politically expedient.

It looks like it's locked now yes, which as you say isn't surprising. But it's not been deleted at least.

Wikipedia is awful in general, but yes, there are a few TRAs on there who have managed to completely takeover anything related to trans issues.
