Well once all womens' sports is dominated by men maybe a new women's sports group will emerge...'Genetically born women's sports'.

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.
That is a good point about the science.

The self-proclaimed party of science often denies science if it gets in the way of some sort of social justice cause.

Now the denial of science by those on the left to advance various women's causes have opened the door to the loss of some gains women have justly made.

I've had students deny that men on average have more testosterone and that testosterone impacts muscle and brain spatial performance. We can't fight against this without being bigoted, so we'll see where this anti-science takes us.

No, I mean 'her'. Whether she wants to be called she, xe, they, lbgtqrtuvwxyz, or whatever, it doesn't affect me or any other competitor. Her competing against women does affect them.

On another note, the sanctioning bodies and proponents always refer to Testosterone levels, but there are other things biological men have an advantage in: larger bone structure, faster reflexes, better gross motor movement, better hand-eye coordination, years of elevated T (beyond natural female levels), etc. I have seen no evidence that these are mitigated by hormone therapy, and have not seen them addressed at all.

The loser couldn't win up against guys, so he has to go up against women. That isn't anything to be proud of, zero accomplishment.

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 !
Yes and Martina Navratilova said this same thing and got slammed by the PC crowd. I competed in sports so I feel qualified to weigh in. As all other women athletes should!

IF I was a washed up male pro golfer, I'd go play in the LPGA.

Call myself a Trans.

Nah, that would be considered "trans-phobic" because it implies "trans-women" are somehow less of a woman than "normal" women. That, you see, further marginalizes an already marginalized group, denies their lived experience, and threatens their very safety as "violent speech."

I hate this so much. Men and women are born genetically different, you should be forced to compete with your birth gender. Are women ok with this? I’d love to hear their side

For many years, women have been the primary driving political force behind this LGBTQXYZ activism nonsense....and for the agenda of the left generally. Those drivers are now learning that every action has a consequence and they are getting exactly what they deserve.

Maybe this will get some heads put back on straight.

Women are not a monolithic group so don't hurl blame at women in general. This is a men's rights movement anyway but it's certainly being helped by some women who don't understand that feminism must always centre females but radical feminists have been speaking up about this for a very long time.
