Yup. You could be the worst man on the course, dragging behind the 2nd-to-last man by a long shot (literally and figuratively!), move over to the women's league, and come in first place. THAT is how much of an advantage men have over women.

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.
It's like "The emperor's new clothes"....it's obvious to everyone yet no one wants to speak out.

I can absolutely believe that some males, if looking at a full ride to UCLA, Harvard or whatnot might identify as Trans for 4-5 years and then change their minds.

People have done some pretty crazy stuff over the years for a lot less.

I said "those drivers", meaning those individuals. I was not hurling the blame at every last woman - I know there are exceptions. But this has been a political movement zealously backed by far more women than men. So much so that this and many other of the radical political changes we have sadly witnessed over a generation would never have happened absent powerful female influence.

Apologies to any clear thinking women who have always opposed this nonsense, but in general terms I stand solidly behind what I said.

Very simple, if you believe in transgender then you shouldn’t complain about this, can’t have it both ways.

They already raised their hands for the Equality Act, which amounts to the same thing.

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?

No.

I don't care what "Laurel" calls himself, he's still a male. I will not support this nonsense of acting like this mental disorder is completely normal. It is NOT normal, and females should not be paying the price for it.

In that case then there is no gender pay gap and there is no glass ceiling for women.
If men who think they are women make good money and have high positions then that counts for women as well.

Because as you said..if you believe in transgender then you shouldn't complain.

Well the Olympic committee says they can compete and they don't have to get a sex change to do it.
Previously they had to be under hormone therapy and have had a sex reassignment surgery.
