World Chess Federation suspends transsexuals from competing as women

Commence recreational outrage!

The SWISS-based International Chess Federation [FIDE] has suspended a policy of allowing male transsexuals to compete as women. The FIDE says a final decision will be made in about two years. Media outlets denounced the suspension under the pretense that chess does not require physical strength. However, men have an inherent advantage over women because their brain, on average, is more suited for the game.
