The committee that determines the rules for the Olympics has decided the rules concerning trans people in Olympic events so that should settle the issue.
I do know enough that I understand that being transgendered is more than just changing your pronouns and hairstyle. There are numerous steps that must be taken just leading up to starting the transition. It's not an overnight or spur of the moment whim.
The article seems to imply that Hubbard became transgender simply to win an Olympic event. That seems utterly ridiculous. The winners of most of these events never attain any fame beyond the brief spotlight they might receive during the Olympics they competed in.
This article comes across as rather hateful. The author obviously has a biased against trans people.
I think people are not directing their emotions at the right people here. The committee that set the rules is the only thing people should get mad at.
Another point I try to stress is that if people of one biological sex don't have an advantage over the other, then the sport shouldn't be segregated by sex. If people of one biological sex do have an advantage, maybe it would be fair if people could only compete with their biological sex. That seems pretty logical to me.
Or maybe we put too much importance on stupid fucking games while our planet heats up, drowns, and chokes on its own garbage... Just sayin'
As if trans-phobes would be just fine with trans people if trans-women just stayed out of womens sports.
I for one despise competitive... anything, really.
I have no interest in male or female sports, and never have, so why is it that every time someone explains to me how I'm not valid they bring up trans-women in womens sports?
They also tell me I'm some kind of sexual deviant, when I didn't decide to transition until almost 10 years after I had pretty much lost all interest in sex.
So there I was an asexual "male" that decided to transition into an asexual "female", why?
Maybe it was the wardrobe choices?
Seriously I always related to women, I understood them, except for their sexual attraction to men which I find weird, but everyone is different. I never understood nor was I ever comfortable with hanging out with men talking about fighting, fucking, and football. I served six years in the Navy surrounded by that kind of conversation, I just wanted to shoot myself.
None of you that are "concerned" about trans people in general really have any business challenging me or my choices since it doesn't concern you and I'm not asking for anything at all from you other than to leave me alone to live my harmless life. Apparently I ask too much.
I heard that most terrorist are cis men, you're a cis man, perhaps we should talk about your cis man predisposition for terrorism?
