I’m all for it, I’m sure the next olympics will just be some leftist infested political circle jerk anyways. Anything that further damages the legitimacy of the event is a good thing in my eyes.

What I'm waiting for is a whole bunch of HS or college males not quite good enough for the varsity team to identify as female and take over the girls basketball, track, softball, swimming, etc. teams. Better yet, for transgender men to compete for spots on national teams like the Olympics or World Cup. It will take something like that for women to figure out whose side to take.

Which is why she had to compete as her biological sex, but they need to make transgenders on hormones not compete at all, or compete in their own category.

I think the good news is that eventually this will stop and sanity will prevail, as it isn't primarily an issue of transgender-ism, but an issue of fairness in sport.

I bet all the other ladies that were getting regularly beaten by the former #1 weight lifter are now secretly happy that she is no longer #1

Team Blue, you'd maybe stand a chance of defeating Trump in 2020 if you'd stop pushing so many voters into his camp.
LOL if I were one of Trumps campaign guys I would make sure the question gets asked in the next Dem debate: "Raise your hand if you believe transgender (male to female) individuals should be allowed to compete in womens Olympics and pro sports."

An organization called "Speak up for women" is arguing that people born as men should not be allowed to compete as women, while others are saying that speak up for women is being discriminatory and hurtful.

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

Ironically, contemporary feminists embrace of anti scientific postmodernism and their use of PC browbeating and social intimidation as tactics have enabled the more extreme aspects of the transgender movement that now irk many of them to advance with no resistance, because biological facts and common sense now cower before their movement.
And I say this as someone who is both pro feminism and pro LTGBQ rights.


When it comes to athletic competition, science has to take precedence over feelings. When they make the decision to transition, they are making a choice with consequences that will require they sacrifice some other things.

I don't think so. Political norms won't be stopped by a sports field. Saying, under penalty of being banned in many places for using the wrong gender pronoun, that you are a woman until you step across this line will not work in the end.
