"Trans girl" sweeps track meet, brags about it

https://milo.yiannopoulos.net/2017/0...necticut-meet/



What do you think? Is the school brave/courageous for letting her compete with the girls?

Except thats a dude... And no, as it gives him an advantage over the women who are likely already busting their butts to be the best in their sport. He can call himself a girl but no one else should have to play into his delusion. He is not a girl despite how he feels.

It would be fine if he had taken steps to transition, but the article states he hasn't, so I don't think it's cool. Just saying you identify as female shouldn't be enough.

Not much opinion really as it's just one random high school, not the Olympics, and what they do is on them. (If teammates take issue, then let them address that with the school.) If it were anything professional, then maybe she should 'transition' first, else possibly be regarded as the equivalent of a girl taking steroids. (Though that opens uncomfortable discussion regarding other girls' assumed inability to compete as well...)

Given the source site and tone, however, prob not worth much more comment.

I've read more than a few cases like these before and I cannot believe how many people will actually defend a transsexual girl compete in a girls event. This isn't always the case however, sometimes it's the schools themselves that force them to go to the category they don't want, so it's a case by case basis, I didn't read this exact case.

Sports are divided by gender because men have an advantage over women, that simple. I actually think if women wanted to compete with men it should be fine since they're the ones at a disadvantage.

Now by that logic a transsexual man should be able to compete with men since its technically a girl and not a man so there is no advantage. But then you have to take into account the hormone treatment they take which yes they're steroids. And that again makes it so it can't happen. I've seen tons of people defending it with stuff like "even if they take steroids they still have the same ____ than most men so they don't really have an advantage. But it is, does that mean a man without enough ___ should be allowed to take steroids then? I've also seen people say that "genetic freaks" who are born with perfect bodies for sports should be banned if trans people are banned since it's not fair that they were born that way.


Ridiculous all around, I'm sorry but if you want to go through hormone treatment which is totally cool if that's what anyone wants but you have to be aware that you may not be allowed to compete in sports professionally since there could be an unfair advantage. Now if there's really enough trans players out there then maybe some type of trans/mixed league or category could be made but I somehow doubt that'll happen because of costs and not enough demand.

A few months ago I heard of a similar story.

17-Year-Old Transgender Boy Wins Texas Girls' Wrestling Championship
Seems like it's becoming the new norm. No opinion on it so far for me.

Kind of hate these subjects because the general consensus sort of comes down to what? Not just transgender prejudice, but "Girls/women are inferior and he's taking advantage."

Ouch. Maybe many guys well never get it, but many/most women don't want that rubbed in our faces. And partly why it's a touchy subject I think best left to be determined by everyone else directly involved, not the public at large. Let that school deal with it and decide... and most of all, the team. Just like the debate over our bathrooms... let women decide what we're okay with.




At the same time, there is the irony of the article (yesterday?) of the young girl whose soccer team was disqualified because... of her hair cut. And someone thinking she looked like a boy.

If it's okay by the school, I don't see why it's a problem.

While not transitioning can be eye raising for outsiders since not all trans people do hormone therapy or surgery. I'd imagine the school have done a extensive investigation by putting er her under the lense and scrutinized every aspect of her life.

There are bigger issues in the world today than high school sports. Next.

He's still a male no matter what.

I blame today's attitude towards seeing everything, gender, culture, tradition and religion as a social construct with no meaning.

Well, at least he uses sources in the video on the topic, unlike yourself who just throws insults to any thread on people who you disagree with.

The problem today is in trying to show the stupidity of the left is you end up with only finding the stupidity of the right and vice-versa.

Trans-species is already a thing... you haven't seen the people who want to be their pets? One dude I read about wants to be a dog so he can take a leak in the park.... the delusions of the left are staggering....
