Many of us were calling this out when it was just a bathroom issue on the news, but we were called sexists for it. It seems the sentiment has changed now, so are we all still sexists?

It should have been anticipated really. The world's gone nuts.

Only a sexist would break this little lady's heart by telling her she can't compete against other women.

Gender should be decided by testosterone levels or something. This way it doesn't matter how an athlete dresses, acts, or genuinely thinks they are a different gender.


If I'm not mistaken, they already test them and decide based on their testosterone levels, which makes it part of the problem. The testosterone levels still don't hide the fact that males naturally have larger muscle masses than women.

50 years ago, the complaint was the same, by just imagining the turmoil it should cause......dey didn't see it coming huh....ok.

Sounds about right



I'm sorry what?!

Are you equating "transgender" to "race"?!

Correct me if I'm wrong - because I was seriously about to explode right now...

This one will sort itself out pretty quickly.
In a few years when no genuine women win medals in anything the backlash will be epic


Agreed.

It'll be hilarious to see.

How can you be sexist?

Many of us are actually labelling this "CHEATING"

If anything, those of us who are against things like this are actually arguing on the side of natural females.

Voyeurism, perverseness, cheating, opportunism you name it.

Personally, I think this is hilarious.

I want him, er her, to compete in the Olympics next year. Might make me tune in, for a laugh.

Do you think they will still get on the wheaties box?


Well they let Bruce Jenner get on the Wheaties box. They should do a modern day box with Caitlyn Jenner in the same pose as Bruce, but wearing earrings and a purse. Instead of a gold medal he/she can be sporting a pearl necklace, no puns intended.

I think everyone finds this amusing......other than the girls that have trained for years only to have a steel plate installed above the glass ceiling they have broken through.

There are always alternatives for competition.....

Agreed. Just leave it alone. The growing backlash from the women being crowded out of their own sports will sort this mess soon enough.

This is exactly what I'm worried about.

Imagine if I am the father of a daughter in 20 years time and she has trained hard for many many years and then she misses out on a place in competitive sporting events because some bloody dude has decided to muscle his way in and cheat and "pass off" as a female?

Bad.
