Re: OFFICIAL 2020 Democratic presidential nominee thread

That doesn't really alter what I said. It's overwhelmingly where the money is going, rather than additional information or 'forecasting', which affects the odds after the market is set. The odds set don't correspond to implied probability because bookmakers don't expose themselves to risk, they sim...

Forcing trans women to play as men effectively excludes them from the game. Why? Because they don't identify as being a man. They consider themselves a woman.
