On Saturday September 13, in a “cage” in the Springfield, Illinois Convention Center, a crowd gathered to watch something that happens thousands of times a day worldwide: a man battered a woman. Fa…
Excellent and comprehensive article by Gallus Mag about the reality of trans participation in sports. As Gallus points out, the Olympic committee’s adoption of hormone levels as the basis of sex only benefits males who now take estrogen and want to compete as women. The IOC now requires female and female-side-of-intersex athletes with “too high” testosterone levels to undergo surgery or hormonal therapy! It’s absolutely insane. Naturally, there is no “testosterone limit” for males - well except for males who can’t hack it in the male division, but realize that with hormones they can become elite competitors in the women’s division.
Gallus’s insight is keen: have you ever heard of an ftm athlete transitioning and competing at elite levels among males? Of course not! The big challenge for Kye Allums was to remain eligible to play on a women’s team - do you really think he has any chance of making the NBA? Hell no.
And on the other side, when Lana Lawless decided at the age of ~58~ to become a “women’s professional golfer”, she was winning all the long-drive competitions by one hundred yards! A nobody from the world of men’s golf was hitting the ball 33% farther than the best women!
Gallus is 100% dead on, as she often is: the campaigns for the “rights” of trans athletes are simply a male rights movement, that doesn’t benefit trans female (ftm) athletes in any way, and on a broad scale hurts women.
I highly encourage everyone to read the full article. And I also encourage people to think about the realities of sex, especially when it comes to combat sports. Elite male athletes routinely bench press in the 400-500 pound range. Elite female athletes are more likely to top out around 150 pounds on bench press. That’s a HUGE advantage when you go to throw a punch, and it is 100% physical.
Oh, and not that it needs to be said, but FUCK Boyd “Fallon Fox” Burton.
