I'll admit: I'm not educated enough to remark on trans people in competitive sports... But I do support trans people enough to say this senator is gross and weird.

I once envied the American's primary election process, now I see it's a really, really bad idea. Primary voters be duuuuuuumb.

White people literally get uncomfortable about others using 'white people'

is that the wrong identity label?  Hick, redneck, Nazi, Republican, it's all the same anyways, but they get so offended when you use the wrong name.

Good thing she moved unscathed through her Kodak fraud to be able to try to drag us backwards in time. The galling fact republicans aren't held accountable for anything is bad enough. That they continue their regressive hateful politics afterwards really amplifies the sting.

While there's something to be said for maintaining a level playing field, I'm not sure there's such a massive problem that we need to start performing genital exams.  Maybe start with a non-intrusive questionnaire?
 
2020-09-24 8:27:40 AM  
Never too early for a Republican to start sniffing around in a woman's ladybits. Can't control their reproductive lives for the next 40 years if you don't grab them by the pussy early.

Let's fix that headline: Transgender woman wants to look at teen girls' genitals.

/double fixed: as subtared, she wants to look at a girl's multiple genitals
//and then we're in another thread/universe altogether

Tangentially related, but is anybody else looking forward to that Harry Potter gane? It looks alright, but I think it's weird how every time you try to change your character's gender in the character creation process, J.K. Rowling shows up and yells at you.

Trans people make up less than a percent of a population but their junk takes up at least 30% of the brain space of conservatives.

It depends.  If you do it unintentionally, you should politely apologize.  If you do it intentionally, you should step back from the situation and ask yourself what lead you to the moment when you purposely insult someone for being who they feel they are, especially because it has no direct impact on your life.

I dunno if this is sarcasm, snark, or just plain ignorance, but... A) Try not to do that. 2 - Every trans person I know is very, very forgiving, especially if you knew them before their transition.  Relearning pronouns is hard, and they understand that, all the more so if they believe you're genuinely trying.  It's like when you're trying to speak a foreign language to someone who's fluent - just the fact that you're making an effort goes a long, long way.

I googled it and this seems a good answer:

Approaching transgender people with respect, awareness, and a desire to learn about gender is an important step in making sure you don't hurt anyone's feelings.  Most people want to treat others with respect. But sometimes even someone with good intentions can still cause pain, embarrassment, or offense. Such moments are an opportunity to listen to a transgender person's concerns, learn more about gender identities and language, and work to improve how you use language that may be inaccurate or offensive.

A simple "sorry" and getting it right after that is all you need. This isn't difficult, nor is it limited to trans people - some people have fairly androgynous bodies and you're probably going to occasionally guess wrong on one of them. Same thing, if you guess wrong, apologize and now you know.

Came her to mention this.

She seems very interested in what other women have going on downstairs.

And is hated by her players.

The only thing this says to me is that Georgia needs to do a much better job at selecting Senators.

And governors, given this one was appointed, not elected...

It does if you consider that she gets off on looking at naked women.

If they really cared about a level playing field they'd simply seperate classes of athletes based on hormones and weight, no poking around with genitals required.

Happen to be born a woman and still have unusually high testosterone and a large frame? You go into the higher class.

Generally, female to male athletes do not perform as well in their fields, whereas male to women athletes tend to perform better. Again, speaking as somebody that's barely educated and probably shouldn't be remarking on the matter, it does seem as though there is a conversation to be had about how trans people belong... It's just a shame that that conversation is dominated by bigoted ding dongs that are like "ReE! ThEy'Re JuSt ChaNgInG GeNdErS To GeT aN EdGe aNd dO sEx sTuFf, lIkE iN ThAt OnE ePiSoDe iN FuTuRaMa."

Like I said, I'm not educated on the matter... But I do know enough to know that if somebody's going about this in a way to delegitimize and exclude trans people, then they're hecking doing it wrong.

They tell you what pronoun they use, you apologize, and you both move forward like normal human adults?

Pretending to be transgendered to get an unfair advantage on the girls team sounds like a very Republican thing to do.

Yes, we were all raised that making fun of dick size was a staple of comedy, and I'm tempted to do so myself at times.  But, in a thread about trans people tiny dicks are often part of the concern, and may cause misgendering and suffering.

I somehow doubt the tiny dicked community really wants to be compared to the current Republican fascist officials, BMW owners and men displaying truck nuts on their vanity pickup trucks.  I've made the same jokes in recent times, but I'm trying to be more thoughtful, it costs me nothing.  They're also getting less funny votes than they used to, so there's that.

sneak in a provision that results in the exclusion of everyone from this except for the daughters of GOP senators, and you've got yourself a deal.

In European schools there are no sports. You join a club outside of school if you want to participate in them. No dances or homecoming or Spirit Week either. They go to school to learn, and that's it. None of the extracurricular bullshiat. It means legislators can't pull things like this.

[citation needed]

There have been several (probably several hundred) MtF trans athletes, and to my knowledge, not a one is running away with the sport. Plenty of accusations, usually levelled at a mid-tier finisher who beat Keighdynn for a spot on Loyola's field hockey team, but nothing to suggest that trans-ness conveys some competitive advantage.

It's almost as though the physical ability gap between male and female bodies is not as wide as we thought, and it takes far more edge than a penis (or lack thereof) provides to dominate at sport.

// Serena Williams would probably still be a top-10 tennis player in a field of men and women
