This is a Democratic problem

After the transgender mixed-martial-arts fighter Fallon Fox began—literally—smashing opponents’ heads, Rogan said this on his podcast:

Look, [Fox is] huge! She’s not just huge, she’s got a fucking man’s face. I mean, you can wear all the lipstick you want. You want to be a woman and you want to take female hormones, you want to get a boob job, that’s all fine. I support your life to live, your right to live as a woman.

Fight guys, yes. She has to fight guys. First of all, she’s not really a she. She’s a transgender, post-op person. The operation doesn’t shave down your bone density. It doesn’t change. You look at a man’s hands and you look at a woman’s hands and they’re built different. They’re just thicker, they’re stronger, your wrists are thicker, your elbows are thicker, your joints are thicker. Just the mechanical function of punching, a man can do it much harder than a woman can, period.

Many Democrats would find the above opinion, and the people who would uphold or express it, abhorrent.

Reality isn’t optional folks. it just ain’t.

Equal rights? Sure, even Hell Yes. Equal in every way? None of the rest of us are nor ever will be….

  1. I struggle to imagine what kind of absolute **** you have to be to have the build and strength of a man, beat up much slighter women and then proudly hold aloft a trophy, like you deserve it.

    i know that shame is soooo old fashioned, but really!

  2. Had to Googlize it and it’s a good article by David Frum, considering it’s David Frum:

    Sanders checked a box of support for the identity issue, then returned to regular programming. For Warren, the identity issue was the regular programming.

    This is truer than he may have intended, because wokeshit is quite literally programming. I.e. a show, an act, a distraction. Like one of those signs on the motorway – DIVERSION – with a clown, juggling atop a Penny Farthing, right beside it. Like the intriguing little light bobbing merrily in front of the anglerfish’s jaws.

    Like “climate change”, the people selling it don’t take it all that seriously, but they hope you do.

    “If we broke up the big banks tomorrow… would that end racism? Would that end sexism?”, asked private jet enthusiast Hillary, blearily sucking down the dregs of her third breakfast vodka.

    Gives the game away, dun’tit? Obviously sexism and racism will never “end”. Just as gay marriage didn’t end the screaming over weird sex politics, it just immediately moved on to the next oddball wedge issue that would’ve been considered a punchline in 1991 (Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time, as whichever effete Millennial bugperson running Joe Biden’s Twitter account put it)

    So… welp and gosh-darn it! I guess that means the Democratic Party has no choice but to continue to do pretty much whenever Goldman Sachs and Google want it to do! We wouldn’t want to be distracted from our Sisyphean struggle against “racism” and “sexism”, would we?

    And… Sanders is a threat, not because “he got nothing done”, as Hillary put it (the pot calling the kettle a jigger), but because there’s a danger he might get something done. After four increasingly stressful years of trying to prevent President Trump from enacting any sort of meaningful change, the last thing TBTB – and their court scribes such as David Frum – want is another President who thinks he has a democratic mandate to change the programme.

  3. There are many heavyweight female fighters who would obliterate featherweight TG fighters; just as there are heavyweight boxers who would obliterate featherweight boxers. May I suggest adopting a system already commonly employed would resolve the perceived problem?

    If you ignore the TG factor you offer instead the option of accepting Aydian Dowling in such an event, whilst rejecting Loiza Lamers….

    “Generations of hard work cultivating women’s sports, oceans of money spent, and ‘transgender activists’ will burn it all to the ground in a matter of months. Women’s sports are over, feminists. You lost an intersectional squabble with a more preferred victim group.”
    John Hayward

  5. The irony is the trans loonies are using exactly the same weapons feminists used against men in the past, except far more ruthlessly (and successfully). Be careful of the precedents you set when you escalate your battles.

  6. ” May I suggest adopting a system already commonly employed would resolve the perceived problem?”

    I presume you mean a system of weight categories? That hardly solves the problem, particularly for team sports. They would have to be divided by weight as well, which will be impossible – what market is there to be for half a dozen womens rugby teams at different weight levels for example? Not only at international level, but club level also? Its just not feasible to split team sports into such many categories, there will never be enough people at lower levels for the sport to exist. Even mens sports would struggle to do that, womens couldn’t even consider it.

    Plus of course you have the problem of what to do with transgender competitors who are much larger than any of their female competitors. What if the category for 13st and above contains no actual women at all and just blokes in dresses? If one 15st trans ‘woman’ turns up at your womens rugby club and demands to play and your heaviest women is 12 stone say, what do you do? Tell ‘her’ to bugger off? Of tell ‘her’ she can join the 13 stone and above team, of which she’s the only member?

    Splitting womens sports into weight categories will kill it just as letting the trans brigade have free rein, there just aren’t enough female athletes to populate umpteen weight categories to keep the odd 14st trans ‘woman’ from obliterating 7 stone women.

  7. Fallon Fox had exactly one fight against someone who wasn’t a complete patsy. She got her head beat so hard she was TKO’d twice.

    (the first time, she was saved by the bell, so her opponent just did it again the next round)

    The fighter that beat her has the awesome record of six wins and four losses since then – an OK record for a top-level fighter, but hardly a superstar.

    If there are advantages for trans women, there are clearly some other disadvantages that at least even them out – Fallon Fox retired six years ago, and there hasn’t been anyone to even get to her level (which was losing the final of a third-tier tournament) since then.

    The IOC rule change to allow trans women to compete as women at the Olympics was in 2005. There have been three Summer Olympics since then (2008 in Beijing, 2012 in London and 2016 in Rio). There hasn’t been a single trans woman who even competed in any of those three events. No-one has yet reached the qualifying standard to go to Tokyo this year.

    Cis women athletes often have somewhat elevated testosterone levels compared to the general population; trans women have to get their testosterone levels down to those typical for cis women athletes (which means either using a lot of antagonist, or an orchiectomy) and stay there for one or two years (depending on the sport) before competing, and then maintain at that level throughout their competitive lives. These rules clearly work, because the competitive records of trans women do not show them dominating sport.

  8. Richard Gadsden – you make good points, but at their current minuscule percentage of the population I would not expect M-F trans athletes to dominate records everywhere. However, the places they are competing in any number they tend to dominate and are setting records, such as the spate of school track stories we heard last fall.

    Personally it’s all rather too funny for me to get upset about, though admittedly I do not have a daughter in sports.

  9. “These rules clearly work, because the competitive records of trans women do not show them dominating sport.”

    Bullshit. The path should not exist. Mutilated men fighting women is wrong.

    “It’s worked out okay so far” is not a defense.

    I tend to agree, go by weight not sex in boxing, judo, karate, mma etc

    However, there’s still the problem of M/F skeletal differences – I guess that can be ignored as it varies so much in each sex

    Some sports that should be mixed are Darts, Luge, Pool, Snooker
