My problem is with some trans people’s blatant denial of biology.
When it comes to sports, there are reasons why sports are sexually-segregated between men and women. Men have a GENETIC/BIOLOGICAL advantage over women: muscle mass, bone structure, upper body strength, height… must I go on? There are advantages of going through male puberty. It’s like LeBron James playing in the WNBA. (That May be a little bit of hyperbole, but you get what I’m saying)
Those advantages don’t change; although you’ve transitioned to your correct gender. Let’s say in a very overexaggerated hypological example that every transgender woman in the US plays a sport. Trans women in women’s sports will end women’s sports as we know it!
Transgender Women are not women. They are Transgender women. Don’t get me wrong, I will still refer to a trans woman as she and her, and I believe that they are women everywhere but a few areas. The problem is, when you’ve grown up in a man’s body, you’ll always have physical, biological differences.
I am going on this rant because of Dr. Rachel McKinnon. She recently broke the women’s world record for cycling, and she is a trans woman. For cycling, there are a lot of advantages men have over women, smaller pelvises, etc.
She came under a lot of controversy, and her way of discussing this controversy is to call everyone that doesn’t agree with trans women in women’s sport as a transphobe. She says that there is NO biological difference between a trans woman and a natural woman. She says that there are no biological differences between cis women and cis men. The talk is fucking absurd!!
This woman has lost it, and honestly, I think the rhetoric from trans lobbyists has gotten her to believe these falsities. She wants to believe this because if she doesn’t, her accomplishments are invalidated.
Girl, even if you just raced and won, it wouldn’t be controversial… but you broke the world record!!! There is a difference. Your breaking of the world record further proves that trans women have advantages over naturally born women.
Soon, women that were assigned male at birth will hold all the records, while women are left in the dust. It really isn’t fair. That is why the Olympics has gender tests for their female athletes.
Ok, sometimes I think it’s pretty invasive.
Let’s look at the case of Caster Semenya, South African sprinter. She is not a trans woman, she’s actually intersex, (I don’t want to be insensitive since I don’t know a lot about intersex disorders, I watched a few you run videos and watched an Oprah show about it. Lol, Oprah is woke!) meaning her gender is ambiguous either physically, hormonally and/or a mix of 2 X and 1 Y.
From what I do know, some intersex people produce biologically “typical man” levels of testosterone. This is probably what is going on in Caster’s case, but I can’t say for sure.
What I do know is that she underwent a gender test, and her results showed that she was intersex and had high testosterone.
I guess she was told to lower her testosterone, and she wasn’t very fast and lagged behind.
In her case, I can say that I am not angry that she is beating everyone. She is a special human being (not saying that Tran women are not or anything), but she didn’t transition from one complete gender to the other. She is in the middle and has always been raised as or thought of herself as female.
This is a natural hormonal or whatever issue. I really don’t know what makes her intersex so I can’t say, but the fact that they made her lower her naturally produced hormone level, that is wrong.
That is the reason she is super human fast, and you’re taking her natural gift away. She didn’t choose this, and there’s an iconic picture of her trying to talk to the other women in the race after and it was very sad to see.
Anyway, transwomen have an unfair advantage and should not be allowed to compete in women’s sports. Sorry, but if you want to continue to deny that their are biological differences between the sexes, I cannot take you seriously.
More to come..
