Actually, the boy in Texas was a female-to-male transgender on testosterone.

Exactly. Women my age have benefitted SO MUCH from Title Nine. And now weíre allowing trans women to take that hard-earned gain from us. Iím not ok with this one bit.

Thereís a fix, and it worked for years and years. Donít allow biological men to compete in womenís sports. Simple.

The simple solution is to have two categories: Women and Open. Anyone can compete in Open. Only biological women can compete in Women.

It makes no sense that a 41 year old is still competitive, but she won't win the Olympics.

So I started to pay more attention this last week, and without fail, there were no women players. And then I had an ephinany: it's because when you get to the very to level of any sport, biological women cannot compete with biological men. Males simply have an innate physiological advantage. A big one. I can't believe I never noticed that before!

Conclusion: No transgendered "women" in sports. Period. Otherwise, every women's team will eventually be made up of transgenders.
Eventually, sanity will prevail.

But for now, it shows how far over the edge we've gone being PC. There is a reasonable allowance that can be made to treat everyone fairly and with dignity but this is sporting competition specifically set up because of the physical advantages between genders.

Should Laurel Hubbard be allowed to compete in the Olympics with the women?

No, Laurel should NOT be allowed to compete with the women.

Team Red, you'll sleep better at night when you understand all this. Trust me.

Freedom to ruin women's sports! Yay freedom!

Team Blue, you'd maybe stand a chance of defeating Trump in 2020 if you'd stop pushing so many voters into his camp.

So, a dude that feels that they are a woman, has entered women's sports and is dominating.


Myself personally, I think it is laughable and I feel sorry for the women competitors that are losing to him.
The left has caused this and there isn't much that can be done or said about it, otherwise you will be labeled a bigot and transphobic.


This is where we are now...not really going to be able to change it. Can't wait until we see more of this !

One of the goals of liberalism is to normalize deviant behavior and it establish it as an accepted norm. This process is pushed until there is no longer a reference point for "normal".


Does it seem odd to anyone how one rarely, if ever, heard of transgender ideas being so publicized and at the forefront of the news until the last five years or so?

I don't know, I'm seeing far more hatred and disgust over the situation than I am support for it.
