Here in the US there is a growing trend to have trans males join regular women's teams. There has been controversy.


You’ve heard the expression, “Boys will be boys.” But what happens when a brawny boy wants to be one of the girls – fiercely competing with females in weightlifting, brutally tackling girls on the football field or even dealing powerful knockout punches to ladies in a mixed martial-arts cage?

It’s now happening across America and around the world

With trans men joining women in the field of sports, an odd thing is happening. The trans men are dominating a bunch of sports. So the movement of equality is now turned into a paradox, the gender gap in sports cannot be erased, but we must be fair.


TextBiological males are joining women’s teams, smashing records and dominating in sports such as weightlifting, softball, cycling, track, wrestling, football, volleyball, dodgeball, handball, cricket, golf, basketball and mixed martial arts.

The movement for “equality” has apparently inspired transgender athletes to join teams of their preferred gender. And that often means biological males are competing against biological females on women’s teams. But in the world of sports, critics argue, equality between the sexes simply doesn’t exist. Physiologically speaking, there’s a gender gap between men and women that cannot be erased.


Men have longer and larger bones, giving men mechanical advantages over women. Muscles, being taller, larger frames, tougher ligaments all give men an advantage over women when it comes to sports. So is it fair with men who have larger lungs, hearts, greater strength and acceleration even fair to have them on the same field as women?


On average, men have longer and larger bones, which gives them mechanical advantages over women, since they have greater leverage, increased height and larger frames to support muscle. Their bones are also more dense, and they have tougher ligaments, making them less prone to sports injury.

Since these physical and physiological factors give most men a clear competitive edge in sports, is it fair or even safe for biological males – with larger muscle mass, hearts and lungs and greater strength, acceleration and speed – to compete against girls and women?

Heres my thought . If they feel that strong about being a woman that they get their tackle cut of then let them go for it . If they havent , sorry but they dont get a start .

I'm not sure if that name would apply in this case. I would more think trans phobic would be more fitting of a knee jerk reactionary name call.

That's just my thoughts.

I think the point of the article was even if an outtie is turned into an innie, the bones and muscles remain the same.

Wait a minute... you complain about this no matter what they do...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Remember when the girl wanted to wrestle boys but had to wrestle girls and you complained that she won...
I do.

Now you're complaining that they've let the transgender go against their own...


You just love bringing up transgender issues so you can complain.

Erm, I'm a 5'8 male...

My bones are not that large in comparison to many women...



You bring no scientific fact to these discussions.

but the lion's share — 95% of it — is made in our testicles


So most of the testosterone is made in your testicles , lets have a look at what happens if you remove your tackle .




Decreases in testosterone can lead to physical changes including the following: increased body fat decreased strength/mass of muscles fragile bones decreased body hair swelling/tenderness in the breast tissue hot flashes increased fatigue effects on cholesterol metabolism


Seems to me they come back to the field rather quickly .

But yet science says you are wrong.

In terms of brute strength men are 50% above women.

I'm sorry that you are not statistically a normal male.

That doesn't change science though.

This is what happens, at least in some sports if this is allowed to continue.

Agreed, this goes against the liberal media's fair to everyone.

What is laughable is the fact that men say I am trans and boom play with the women. Fair to everyone but all the women who were the protected class up til now I guess. Now we move to the trans being given special treatment in place of women.

Yep, there is a difference when women train and take "supplements" then when trans from men to women do.

Provide evidence of any transwoman or transgirl that just decides one day to transition and the next day get on a girls team.

If not, your example is at best misguided.

Also the concept of equality is not from the liberal media, but the Constitution of the United States.

The constitution says nothing of trans men playing with women.

Time has no baring on this.

Do you disagree that a man could say I am transitioning and want to play women's softball?

I don't see how that could possibly be controversial. It's all within the law of Liberal Code. If they start complaining about it now, the entire system will fail. And that would create chaos and a deep resentment, further creating an atmosphere of division amongst the people of planet earth.
