Why don't we ever see female to male athletes trying to compete with guys?
I think there's a few threads here on ATS about such things. High school girls wanting to be boys so they can wrestle high school boys or something
Not sure if any has won by beating a boy yet as last one I heard about her competition dropped out as he was a Christian kid and I think he stated it
went against his beliefs. So she/he/it won by default.
Plus we males are still expected to "be men" so the kid was screwed regardless of his decision.
If he won 'he beat a girl"
If he lost "he got beat by a girl"
Plus how awkward being a teenage boy having to grab and wrestle a girl in lycra. Where do you grab without feeling like a pervert?
I mean how many of these 'athletes' are even fully transitioned?
He could make no other decision but to bow out and try to save some of his pride and reputation.
A lot of these so called trans people look like their former gender but just in a wig. Never discussed if they're on hormones or getting nipped and
Apparently we just have to take people on face value when it comes to gender and sexuality these days.
If I claimed I was a brain surgeon would a hospital hire me just on my say so, or would they expect proof I am indeed a brain surgeon?
Don't see how this is any different.
If a guy says he is a woman, but still has high testosterone and his junk and zero eostrogen being taken can they seriously claim to be female?
Same for women in reverse?
I mean check out this guy/gal/person.
Transgender Football Player "Hannah"
Person looks no different than when they were a "Man". Every photo I just see longer hair. I see no breasts, I see no less muscle mass.
I literally see nothing that identifies them as female to ones naked eye. I'd be surprised if they have had any hormone therapy or surgery to make
them "a woman"
And seriously look at the size of the dude compared to the women he is competing with in hand ball, which they only now play after being rejected from
playing Women's football.
Which reinforces some's claims here of shopping for sports until you get something you can succeed at when you've failed elsewhere.
It's no different to people who cheat in video games because the winning and the glory matter more than how you played the game.
Seriously look at them, they're a muscle filled giant compared to those women he is playing against.
How can any sane person consider that "equal" to his team mates and opponents?
Not to mention it denies a real woman the chance to play.
I got nothing against people living how they choose to live. But I do have issue when people do not have to live with the consequences of their
choices and actions, and when those choices and actions ruin things for other people.
(In this case the female athletes who have no chance competing against them unless they do steroids.)
Humanity is getting stupid.
I dread to think what we'll allow next because people were "born this way" or someone doesn't want to risk offending someone else.
We're on a slippery slope here and and it is just getting slippier.
