Funny, this outrage over transwomen in sports is almost entirely male. The women competing with them seem to have no problem with it. My local high school had a girl turn out for the wrestling team after she got cut from the girl's basketball team. There is no girl's wrestling in my region, so she competed with boys. And beat enough of them (her first year) to go to the state finals. She just got an athletic scholarship. She'll be wrestling at the college level next year. How about you let the women in women's sports decide what's best for them, and what constitutes an unfair advantage?
 
Publicly articulated or not, I think this is a fallacy.  These are just a couple vids, I can post many more vids and articles of lawsuits and public complaints by women competitors some of which had to actually retract with apologies faster than John Cena can apologize to his Chinese overlords in Mandarin for committing the atrocity of calling Taiwan a country.{#Rolleyes}

Wonder how a boy competing on a girls wrestling team would go down?
Sure, i know, the girl competed with boys because there are no girls teams.
But there are boys and girls teams for most trans athletes to compete with. 
And if they dont like that, start your own league.

I am all for the various organizations figuring out what sex can compete in their individual groups, or even individual school districts.
Certainly not outraged about anything,  or looking for legislation to solve this. It's just sports.
But still, I think the whole idea lacks common sense.

Now those that opposed Title IX are the defenders of female sport in the US.  Too funny.

I'm sure there will soon be lines at the gender reassignment free clinic so that men can win Olympic medals simply by taking some hormones and a few hours of surgery.  A lot easier than training!  The population is about 0.3% transgender women... which isn't going to destroy woman's sports.

When they start giving the scholarship opportunities at beauty pageants to men...then I'm gonna call Fox News and demand action!


Sure, but that is the total population, not the population of competing athletes.
arguably still not that high.
No offense meant to anyone, but again its not a binary choice.
A man/woman id as a woman/man is trans.
Is it fair to a woman who trains for the olympics to be beat by someone with a biological advantage? Any more fair than someone who dopes?
Give them their own olympics.

didn't the east germans have trans women in the olympics years ago?

i'd say gender fluid is coming soon too (as well as other gender identities)

it will be interesting to see if transgender men make the crossover as well

lebron could go fluid and smash some wnba records

imagine holding records in both leagues

that would certainly be historic

So, what does fairness have to do with how much $ goes to pro women sports?

Seems to me that the reactionary legislation drive is aimed mostly at schools (incubators of elite athletes), not pro sports.

But read...
The dialogue around trans women’s participation in sports implies that they are invading women’s sports for a competitive advantage. Competing for what? Crumbs.

Some lawmakers have the audacity to give their bills names like the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act.

What if these new activists embraced women’s sports and invested in female athletes, instead of using us as their excuse for transphobia?
