    The Women's March recently denounced their notorious vagina hats since it discriminated against women who didn't have vaginas (i.e., men who think they're women)

    High school wrestler forfeits final match rather than face a girl at Colorado state tournament

    Brendan Johnston had a chance to place at the Colorado state wrestling tournament on Saturday.

    Instead, he chose to forfeit because he didn’t want to wrestle a girl.

    Faced with the prospect of advancing in the 106-pound consolation bracket, Johnston simply declined to wrestle his third-round opponent Angel Rios.
    Wrestler ‘not really comfortable’ taking on a girl

    Why? Because he didn’t want to “treat a young lady like that on the mat.”

    I’m not really comfortable with a couple of things with wrestling a girl,” Johnston told the Denver Post. “The physical contact, there’s a lot of it in wrestling.

    “And I guess the physical aggression, too. I don’t want to treat a young lady like that on the mat. Or off the mat. And not to disrespect the heart or the effort that she’s put in. That’s not what I want to do, either.

    Women’s sports may one day soon consist entirely of men

    The only piece of research done on transgender women competing in women’s sports had a sample size of eight people

    Congratulations to Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood for sweeping all before them in the Connecticut girls’ high school track races last week. Yes, of course they are men. There were some anguished complaints from the various girls these two speedy lads defeated, but these were of course brushed aside in a country where women’s sporting events may one day soon consist entirely of men.

    Already a Democratic party representative, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, is insisting that the US powerlifting tournaments allow transgender women to compete, so that people who look very much like Geoff Capes, and have the same chromosomes as Geoff Capes, and the same bone structure and musculature, can compete against women. Meanwhile, the fastest female college sprinter in the US is CeCe Telfer, who, once again, is not what you or I or science would call a lady, and one of the world champions in women’s cycling is a chap called Rachel McKinnon, whom I have mentioned here before.

    Writing in the Sunday Times of London, Martina Navratilova described it as ‘insane’ and ‘cheating’ that men who have transitioned should be allowed to compete against women, adding that ‘hundreds’ of trans athletes have ‘achieved honors as women which were beyond their capabilities as men’. The former tennis star added that few people were prepared to speak up about this issue because of the furore that would immediately descend upon them from the perpetually enraged trans lobby. Indeed, within a few hours of her article being published she was booted off the advisory board of a gay advocacy group and was being denounced left, right and center in the kind of furiously screeched terms that have become the hallmark of these perhaps not wholly balanced campaigners....


    The "protectors of women" are working against them!

    MM, here is a place where we agree completely.This is nothing less than absolute idiocy.

    Andraya Yearwood, a 17-year-old junior at Cromwell High School, is one of two transgender high school sprinters in Connecticut, transitioning to female.

    She [sic] recently finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender and set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds. Yearwood finished in 7.01 seconds and the third-place competitor, who is not transgender, finished in 7.23 seconds.
    All I can say is: what a crock. People have chosen to live a lie rather than face reality.

    There are feminists who fight it... they're typically called TERFs (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminists), which many of them take as a slur, and written off.

    there is a female to male transgender who is (or was) on the men's swim team. Went from winning swim meets to placing in 16th place....

    Several years ago there was a series of programs on PBS hosted by Alan Alda that dealt with what it meant to be human (broadly speaking. One episode mentioned a bunch of studies (and repeated some of them in front of the camera) that revealed that even in infancy, long before society could possibly impress gender roles or expectations on them, boys and girls are profoundly different. Or as Alda said (paraphrasing), something that parents who had raised both boys and girls already knew.

    I suspect that win streak would grind to a sudden halt if she ever competed against men.
