Notice how it's only male to female trannies dominating females sports. Why aren't female to male trannies setting records in men's sports? It almost suggests there is some sort of innate biological difference.

I noticed a lot of mixed doubles
tennis, badminton,
ping pong etc

what happens if one man teams up with a boy to girl partner?

I suppose that is mixed gender ?

Suppose some man decides he wants to call himself a girl . Does that qualify

The pandemic has aggravated an already alarming situation regarding the cost and accessibility of food worldwide, as the director general of the Food and Agricultural Organization recently explained. Rising prices mean rising political and social instability, threatening the stability of governments and societies and potentially igniting conflict. In developing countries, where in some cases the socio-economic situation was precarious even before the pandemic, food price inflation could mean malnutrition or starvation. This also threatens to make an already uneven recovery from COVID-19 even more unequal.

If government and rebel forces in Syria fail to ink a new cease-fire agreement, an escalation of fighting in the south could inspire unrest in other regime territories and send a new flood of refugees into Jordan. Tensions erupted between regime and rebel forces in the southern border city of Daraa on July 29, marking what the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights called the “most violent and broadest clashes in Daraa since it came under regime control.” The Syrian Al-Watan newspaper claimed a military operation had begun against rebel forces, while activists and opposition sources said that rebels had taken military checkpoints and repelled government attacks. Daraa has been in crisis since June 25, when Syrian forces demanded former rebels turn over light weapons under a cease-fire deal signed in 2018. But rebels balked at the prospect, with Syrian forces surrounding the city in an attempt to pressure rebels into...

The Philippine president reportedly agreed to restore the critical Visiting Forces Agreement.
By: Geopolitical Futures

Agreement reached. The U.S. and the Philippines may have finally put to rest concerns over one of the biggest threats to their Mutual Defense Treaty. Following a meeting with U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte reportedly agreed to fully restore the two sides’ critical Visiting Forces Agreement, which the president had previously repeatedly taken steps to scrap.

It would also quash any hope of implementing the landmark basing agreement reached back in 2014.
