    "Why care what "they" think."

    That's the million dollar question, isn't it? It's almost as if the power and influence of this small subset of people over the majority transcends the type of power and influence you would logically expect them not to have. I don't get it.

    It's kind of hilarious to imagine a future where liberals will have effectively destroyed women's sports, and it will be nothing but men competing against men, with "transgender" serving as the peewee league of adult sports.

    These people are clearly not in their right minds.

    Feminism is not about equal rights, as often claimed, but about eradicating all differences between men and women. This is its full flowering, the full reaping of what was sowed.

    The feminists reap what they sow, and deserve this situation. Their daughters don't, but welcome to unfair life.

    A sport like wrestling is a sanitised form of combat, and people have been pretending for years that the best kickass women can be as good a soldier as above-average men, that their physical performance can be as good. That lie has been accepted. Now the best women are competing with above-average men in sports, they lose badly, and then lots of complaints and whining.

    By accepting the smaller lies, people become more powerless against the bigger ones. And they've accepted so, so many lies about Equality.

    I find it hilarious only in the sense that the alternative is rather dire.

    Transgender Cyclist Rachel McKinnon continues to smash women’s cycling records, the latest being a “world record” in the women’s 200m sprint.

    McKinnon, 37, not only set the record in the 35-39 category but also won the 200m gold medal at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships on Sunday. Canadian McKinnon beat out American Dawn Orwick, and Denmark’s Kirsten Herup Sovang, who took silver and bronze behind McKinnon.

    Dr. Rachel McKinnon, who was born a man, also won the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles in 2018, among other events.

    But not everyone was thrilled by the big win.

    Jennifer Wagner-Assali, a competitor who lost to McKinnon in the past — but did not race last weekend — called McKinnon’s win “unfair,” the Times reported.

    “It was an unfair race, and I accepted that when I pinned on the number, and I tried to do my best to overcome the unfairness,” Wagner-Assali said of McKinnon’s dominance over natural-born female racers.

    “I do feel that hard-fought freedoms for women’s sport are being eroded. If we continue to let this happen, there will be men’s sports and co-ed sports, but there won’t be any women’s sports,” Wagner-Assali added.

    Wagener-Assari also said that if men claiming to be women continue to dominate women’s sports, then many young girls won’t even bother to get into sports. “I see little girls competing . . . and I don’t want them to have to fight this issue,” she said

    McKinnon, though, rebuffed the charge that she was dominating the women’s sport. “I haven’t won any Olympic medals. I haven’t won any elite world championships,” McKinnon said.

    Before Sunday’s race, McKinnon defended the right of transgenders to compete alongside natural-born women saying that “preventing trans women from competing is denying their human rights.”

    https://www.breitbart.com/sports/201...omens-records/

    While I highly question whether the ability to compete in a sport is a "human right," even if it is, no one is preventing "trans women" from competing. They are arguing against having "trans women" compete against actual women (or if one finds the term "actual" objectionable, substitute "biological"). To my knowledge, no one has been arguing that a trans woman be disallowed from competing against men.
