Earlier this month, a North Carolina male high school volleyball player identifying as a female slammed a spike into a girl's head, causing head and neck injuries from which she still hasn't recovered. In response, the Cherokee Board of Education voted 5-1 to forfeit all of its games against the offending school.
This is a great first step. If schools continue to put girls/women at risk by allowing males to compete against them, I'd love to see all of the opponents refuse to engage.
The schools looking for an unfair advantage might find themselves alone, without any competitors to face.
They can stick to intramurals and injure their own players this way; still harming females, but far fewer. Perhaps the teammates will find other schools and the self identifier can play with himself.
No one cares what you want to wear or how you feel, so long as you don't negatively impact real women.

As a topic this appears to fit as our transubstantiation where both sides agree on a lot but where they don't agree it's so fundamental as become an immovable topic..

As a society all the various topics demonstrate is a deep struggle its having safeguarding its vulnerable groups.

I'm sorry, I cannot offer anything other than Clown World, smmfh.

why not have all the girls teams filled with men who pretend to be women, and level the playing field. Oh wait, that would just be men's sports.

I don’t blame the insane for being insane. But I am starting to lose my patience with everyone else. The inmates are running the asylums and children are raising their parents.
I saw people protesting birds for being spying devices yesterday and I’m pretty sure they were serious.
I gotta get off this rock, Chuck.

Another great point. The most irksome and unbelievable part in all this has nothing to do with the poor saps who feel they were born into the wrong body, rather everyone else celebrating it and pretending the naked emperor is dressed in full finery.

Maybe have 3 teams going forward.

Men, Women, and Trans.

Too fair?

What you're proposing sounds an awful lot like equality, when the real goal is equity (handicapping everyone to accommodate the lowest denominator).




THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal
before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter
than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was
stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the
211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing
vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.

Prediction: If you don't allow men identifying as women to play against women and only against other female impersonators, I bet you will suddenly see a lot less trans women athletes.

Sure. But who would watch it? And who should pay for it?
The reality is that it would be exploiting the mentally ill.

I bet you're right.

It seems to be more about dominating than competing on an equal playing field.

Do a simple test: the chair challenge. The ones who do it effortlessly go into women's sports, the ones who can't go into men's sports.

No amount of identity or quackery is getting around this.

How about split people by their actual sex?
Just because this boy feels like a girl he is still a boy.

If people insist on splitting sports by gender instead of sex then just have one team… let the chromosomes fall where they may…

I can already see the argument. Picture this, three locker rooms. men, women, and other. When you get two furries (funny, that word is underlined as if it's wrong! LOL IT IS!!!) one identifies as a cat, and one as a blue nose pit bull, there may be a fight. once that happens, who will be held responsible? I know it will be republican's fault, but I do enjoy asking, just to get those thinking juices flowing.

Off-topic, but we do have students identifying as cats. And never mind bathrooms, there are conflicting articles of schools actually installing litter boxes (though I'm not finding anything definitive).

Clown world? We've only seen the warmup act.

I agree completely, if it was up to me it'd be like the old days. Men and Women teams with certain sports having weight classes. That's it.

But

I only suggested the "trans" team because I feel for the girls getting smashed by superior physicality and seems like this crap is here to stay.

That's racist?

THUNDERDOME

I'd pay to see that.
