It bothers me a lot more at the college level and above than it does at the high school level and below. I would have a very difficult time taking an olympic record set by a transgender woman seriously.
I mean we still count the records that were set in swimming when everyone was literally wearing performance enhancing equipment in 2008. I don’t fully understand the argument unless you’re calling for everyone to do the events naked and use similar equipment as they did when each event was introduced (which TO BE FAIR I do think would be badass).

liked these comments from the non-pos republican gov of utah.

"a lot of political rhetoric is picking a slice of "elites" and positioning yourselves against them."

We don't count records for people caught using steroids, and I view it more similarly to that.

That’s because steroid use is against the rules. We also wouldn’t count a record set this year by someone wearing the same swimsuit they were using in 2008.

Athletes have been cheating forever. It wasn't a baseball thing that only lasted for a decade.

I just don't see how this could ever be perceived as a problem in amateur athletics?

Well considering most Olympic sport governing bodies perform hormone testing, I doubt you'll ever have to worry about it. Caster Semenya is a real world example of someone who was harmed because we as a society can't figure out how to deal with gender.

According to rural KS Facebook posts this is the number one issue we face as a society right now.

I'm not going to fact check that, but these gender hustlers need to think more critically about what they're really asking for here. I can't imagine the amount of crying they would do if someone born a female was competing in female sports while transitioning to a male who is taking testosterone. These idiots here are trying to pass a bathroom bill here in schools. A person born a woman who has transitioned into a male but hasn't had reassignment surgery yet testified to a committee that he will be forced to use the girls bathroom when he visits his daughter's schools, none of them cared, they were all still YOLO!!! Really showing how much they actually care about these precious little girls.

With the news this week, i have been thinking a lot about this issue politically and otherwise. I would be up for an IRL discussion with someone who sees this issue differently than i do sometime- to help me better understand the other side*. If anyone wants to have that discussion to better understand one another- DM me and let’s set up a time to grab coffee and hang.

But it would need to be IRL. I am not good at discussing issues that can become really emotionally charged online- which is why i don’t pit and pretty much at this point just sign on here sporadically. In my younger goEMAW days i got into some threads i regret because they became unhelpful and often mean spirited, and i didn’t like what it brought out in me.

And 99% of people are down for this, sports are a separate issue here.

 I also appreciate MIR’s take too about why would someone put themselves through such a transformation to get a leg up in a particular gender sport. I just think it is a semi issue when breaking down the the two.

I put my kid gloves on these days to be more liked and accepted by my friends from gE. I’m happy for ppl who switch genders for their happiness in life, I disagree with them hopping sports when it comes to gender. Does this make you happy, jerk?! :shakesfist:

What does the "traditional Christian sexual ethic" say about transgender rights?

If Demi does anything to prevent stories of some maga exploding himself and his brother just to have a pink pipe bomb party I will never listen to Confident again.
