I have no problem with anyone deciding what sex they want to be and no problem with gay people. None. I was always for gay marriage. (Though I am adamantly against any surgery or hormones before puberty when that is when peoples’ sexuality and their maturity become at least somewhat established. We know the human brain is not fully developed until something like 24! And drinking and other drugs at 18 pose problems for that as it is). But otherwise, whatever blows their dress up, as they say!
I’d rather they were not in women’s rest rooms, not because I’d be that uncomfortable simply because they were trans, but because I’ve had too many predators and perverts accost me in my life time to want to make it easier for them, especially in a rest area. Predators come in all shapes and sizes and colors and some might even be trans, but I don’t want to worry about my daughter dealing with that. I’ll spare you the scary stories I’ve had in my lifetime.
Ok, question. If it’s only hormones and there are a small percentage of trans-women, why are those almost always winning in disproportional numbers in women’s sports?
And two, if it’s only hormones why can’t I find anything about trans-men beating or even competing with biological men in mens’ sports? Been researching for half an hour. Why can’t a trans-male compete with biological “normal” males?
Because it’s not just hormones, folks.
Women just keep getting screwed and nobody cares. Men continue to find ways to do it and now they are ruining women’s sports. This is outrageous.
Why can’t they have categories for transgender men and transgender women? That’s how they do horse competitions or dog competitions, by breed and ability. They don’t put miniature horses or even a quarterhorse in with Thoroughbred jumpers or race horses. Duh. No matter how many hormones you give them, they are not biologically the same. For instance a filly has NEVER won the triple crown and rarely wins one of the legs. Guess why. I’ll give you three guesses. And I’ll bet giving her testosterone won’t do it.
So the only way there is ANY chance for hormones to make a difference it would HAVE to be giving the pre-adolescent boy hormones BEFORE puberty (and that might make no difference), but if they did it, it is child abuse in my opinion. There are reasons we don’t let young children drive cars, drink, vote, and more. They are not mature enough to make that kind of life-changing decision. And most of this garbage is driven by crazy parents. Or sometimes peer pressure or other self-esteem issues.
The world has gone mad and once again women pay. They’ve been paying ad infinitum and might as well keep on paying. Love the way they even blame white women for slavery when they had no rights and were property longer than black men! I’m a white woman and I think I should have reparations for not only being considered chattel, but also then having white guilt thrust upon me. Sometimes even by my MALE liberal friends! Who cares if it was not me personally. My white female ancestors were slaves! Especially if she wasn’t gorgeous and couldn’t marry well.
Stop the insanity.
